As a Middle East-based extreme metal band, we have constantly strived to take our music to all ends of the world and as a record label specializing in extreme metal, we couldn’t be more pleased to begin this new relationship. The new record is currently being worked on and we can’t wait to bring the chaos live to a stage near you soon!”
NERVECELL released their debut full-length, Preaching Venom, in 2009 via Germany’s Lifeforce Records (Europe) and Spellbind Records (Middle East) followed by their critically-adored Psychogenocide long player just two years later. Their unique blend of Middle Eastern death/thrash and a reputation for debilitating action-packed live performances helped pave their way to playing some of Europe’s most renowned festivals including Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault. The widespread success of Psychogenocide also awarded NERVECELL the honor of being crowned the “All Time Best Selling Metal Act” in the Middle East and North Africa region, consequently receiving a plaque of recognition from Virgin Megastores (MENA) in January of 2012 certifying this huge accomplishment.
