THEORIES Seattle Death Grinders Join Metal Blade Records; Live Actions Underway

Seattle death/grind unit, THEORIES, has signed with Metal Blade Records. The band, which features former members of Book Of Black Earth, Skarp, and Samothrace, has been performing across the US since their inception in late 2010 earning slots on tours with Goatwhore, Fallujah, Toxic Holocaust, King Parrot, and more. Now in 2014, THEORIES are preparing to release their debut full-length. The lineup of vocalist Rick Powell, guitarist Lee McGlothlen, bassist Kusha Karimi, and drummer Joe Axler have joined forces for one purpose: to write vicious grindcore/death metal, and to tour extensively.

Drummer Joe Axler comments: “After grinding hard for almost four years we had finally taken a (short) break from touring to record our first full length record engineered by Derek Moree at Red Room Studios and mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound and are extremely excited with the results. During a tour around the states to Marlyand Death Fest, just after recording, we fell upon the ears of the label we will be releasing with, Metal Blade, we couldn’t be happier with this new relationship and plan on continuing to go hard and bust as many fucking ear drums as possible. Grind hard or stay fucking home!”

Additional details, new music, art, etc. from the forthcoming THEORIES full length will be available in the coming months. Until then, fans can hear the band’s 2011 demo at
