Hate Eternal signs w/ Metal Blade Records

Monday, January 22, 2007 1:39 PM PT


Floridian death metal band Hate Eternal has officially signed with Metal Blade Records. Formed in 1997, the band has previously released several albums with Earache Records. Guitarist Erik Rutan comments on the deal:

"Signing to Metal Blade for us reconfirms that all the hard work, blood, sweat and tears we have put into the band has been worth every single moment. This is completely amazing. We know we will forge on with all the support and confidence a band can ask for from their record label. We are proud to be a part of the hugely successful Metal Blade Family and look forward to bringing our music to the next level."

Meanwhile, Metal Blade owner/CEO Brian Slagel says "I am truly honored to be working with Hate Eternal. They are a legendary band and I am so happy to welcome them to the Metal Blade Family."

The group is currently writing material for their next full-length, which will be recorded at Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in June/July.
