ESKIMO CALLBOY, the modern metal six piece from Castrop Rauxel, have kicked up a lot of dust not only in their native Germany, but also internationally. Their latest two albums landed in the German Top Ten Album Charts, “We Are The Mess” (2014) on #8 and “Crystals” (2015) on #6, they toured Europe with the likes of Callejon, Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch and Asking Alexandria and played high profile festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, Open Flair and Nova Rock. Moreover, ESKIMO CALLBOY already toured countries such as Japan, Russia, China and South Africa and played a full US tour with Deuce and Kottonmouth Kings.

After following the band working their way up from sweaty, local clubs to big international stages Century Media Records/People Like You Records are excited to work the band worldwide.

Wolfgang Funk, Label Manager People Like You Records: “We are really happy about signing a young and up-and-coming band that will leave additional marks in the international scene. Moreover they are adding another flavour to the People Like You roster that we are going to keep working on. We are really looking forward to an exciting and successful cooperation with the band.”

Kevin Ratajczak, ESKIMO CALLBOY: “After more than 2 years of working on our 4th studio album we are holding the first masters in our hands – finally! We put in more blood, sweat and tears than into any other album before and we are absolutely sure that it’s the best we ever did. It’s a total cliché, but it’s true! We are really happy to release it via Century Media Records/People Like You Records. With all their experience and the close contact we kept during the past few months, we are sure that we can take ESKIMO CALLBOY to the next level.”

For those who stayed satanic.

Swedish luciferian death metal overlords NECROPHOBIC have signed a deal with Century Media Records for the world excluding USA and Canada.

Formed in 1989 NECROPHOBIC belong to the first wave of Swedish death metal bands. Ever since the release of their classic debut album “The Nocturnal Silence” (1993) the band has released a total of seven studio albums, among them timeless masterpieces as “Darkside” (1997), “Bloodhymns” (2002) or the brilliant 2009 album “Death To All”.

Having NECROPHOBIC on the label is not just a nice addition to the label’s impressive roster of Swedish death and black metal bands like Marduk, Watain, Grave, Tribulation, Vampire, Firespawn and more. It’s feels like the completion of the task of bringing together what belongs together.

The circle is complete.

Anders Strokirk – vocals
Sebastian Ramstedt – guitars
Johan Bergebäck – guitars
Alex Friberg – bass
Joakim Sterner – drums

IMPLORE sign worldwide deal with Century Media Records, new album in autumn 2017

Hailing from Berlin, but with their roots in Spain and Italy, the three-piece IMPLORE have gained a strong following within the extreme metal scene since the band formed in 2013 in Hamburg, Germany. Hard working and dedicated since day one IMPLORE have released several EPs and demos as well as the critically acclaimed debut full length album “Depopulation” (Pelagic Records, 2015). With over 200 live shows all over Europe, North and South America as well as major festivals shows (Summer Breeze, Party.San and many more) IMPLORE’s name has widely spread among fans of brutal death metal, grindcore, hardcore and crust punk. Although IMPLORE’s sound is often labeled as death metal, the band’s talent to entwine elements from different genres into their sound has opened doors to different scenes, attracting open-minded fans of all kinds of extreme music.

“Subjugate” the second album of the band – and the first one for their new label home at Century Media Records – now reaches for new horizons. With a more focused approach, more elaborated songs, a stronger sound and a lot of experience, IMPLORE are well prepared to take the world by storm.

“Subjugate” is going to be released on September 22nd 2017 in cooperation with the band’s former label Pelagic Records.

More news about the album will follow in the upcoming days and weeks.
