7th Plague to sign w/ Metal Blade Recs

Friday, February 3, 2006 10:36 PM PT


Official press release (7th Plague):

7th Plague have accepted an offer from Metal Blade Records for a four-album recording contract. The band will be signing the record deal on Wednesday, February 8th. The band is extending an invitation to all interested press to come to the signing.

7th Plague came into full form in July of 2004. All of the members are currently 17 years old, still in high school and have made huge advances with their music and talents in less than two years. In a short amount of time the band has performed with bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, DevilDriver, The Haunted, Byzantine, All That Remains, The Agony Scene, 3 Inches of Blood, Children Of Tragedy, Still Remains, and others.

Recently, the band completed a demo with Hardcore Marketing in house-producer Don Debiase (Gatlin, APG). The band then had their Manager Neil Sheehan from HM, Inc. shop the demo to several record labels. In October of 2005 the band learned through Sheehan that Metal Blade was putting an offer in on the band. In January 2006 the band received initial copies of their negotiated contracts and accepted the mutually agreed upon terms. The band will sign the official agreement alongside Manager Neil Sheehan and their respective parents on Wednesday February 8th during a dinner at Westlake, Ohios Dave and Busters.

2/3/2006 11:32:41 PM
they need to come up with an original name.

2/3/2006 11:52:01 PM
stupid shitty gay band

2/3/2006 11:59:24 PM
this will be terrible, 17 year olds cannot make decent music, and their name is awful too.

If you have a manager, your band sucks. I don't give a shit how many pokemon you've caught. End of story.

2/4/2006 12:54:24 AM
So because they're 17 it makes them better? I mean the music is pretty good but not that great...and the age doesn't make it better.

2/4/2006 12:58:14 AM
you can tell they've been weened on nu-metal.

2/4/2006 1:31:59 AM
Christ. Metal Blade shits out more junjunweewee onto the masses. great.

2/4/2006 2:35:52 AM
You know what's awesome? This contract will not be valid unless it is enforced and signed by a judge. Minor's parents in most states are not eligible to sign on their behalf. Have fun at dave and busters!

The owner of MB must love underage boys

2/4/2006 4:05:25 AM
MB seems to be the most bored out of all of the bigger records labels. HAHAHA. These kids should have massive heads in no time.

Change your name please, this is getting ridiculous.

2/4/2006 1:43:08 PM
I sure these kids swallow lots of c-ck. Especially on weekends.

2/4/2006 1:47:13 PM
bands like these need a self-destruct button

2/4/2006 4:55:04 PM
no care ever. Hardcore and Marketing are two words that should never be in one sentence.

2/4/2006 5:43:08 PM
The guy who said they need an original name is right, I have a cd of a band called the Ninth Plague and they're sick as hell, wonder if they're still around. fck Metal Blades, it's all about BMA!!!

Slagel has moer "cred" than all you morons put together. He's been putting out metal since before all your parents conceived you while listening to "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey in their VW Minibus. Now go rag on someone who deserves it. Idiots.

2/4/2006 8:23:19 PM
so some teenage shits take music lessons, get a manager and a producer and presto...an instant chia-band with a record deal with a big label. and a bunch of guys that already have a piece of you from the beginning. enjoy your short career guys.

2/4/2006 10:27:18 PM
this band will break up when they hit puberty

2/4/2006 11:36:39 PM
wtf is MB thinking?

2/5/2006 7:39:13 AM
"youarehearingmetalk", actually I was listening to "Don't break the oath" (mercyful fate) but Journey is cool.

2/5/2006 2:54:55 PM
So...this band that I've never heard of...that apparantely has not toured...and plays only in OH and can't even legally move out of mom and dads house...got signed to a major metal label? Does George W. own MB? cuz that's some ass-backwards shit.

2/6/2006 12:13:24 AM
this is what how i feel about metalblade records: http://enhasa.org/sandbox/

17 yr old kids getting signed to a HUGE label and all of you jerks are being gay. I think they diserve it. Metallica and Slayer were on Metal Blade, so was Lamb of God and so is unearth and the redchord.

2/6/2006 7:00:13 PM
yeah dumbass... we know what bands are on metal blade. the difference is all those bands are good and this one sucks

2/10/2006 4:27:46 AM
Well i havnt heard anything from these kids yet but i will soon check it out. I think 17 is way to young to be signed,there to imature and dumb. Come on,i doubt they could handle the road without mommy and daddy beside them.

4/14/2006 1:21:38 AM
i'm from streetsboro (where these guys are from) and I have NEVER ever heard of them until I saw in the paper that they were signed...
