Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of THIS ENDING from Stockholm, Sweden. THIS ENDING were formerly known as THE PLAGUE, but had to change their name due to legal reasons.
THIS ENDING started during the fall of 2005. 13 songs were created, three of which are featured on the downloadable demo recorded at Offbeat Studio in the winter of 2005.
THIS ENDING existed in a previous incarnation as A CANOROUS QUINTET. After several years of absence from the metal scene the guys decided that the time was right for a new era. It was time for the age of the plague. Members of the band are/have been active in the following acts: AMON AMARTH, GUIDANCE OF SIN, NIDEN DIV. 187 and SINS OF OMISSION, among others.
"We are very pleased to be working with one of the most dedicated metal labels in the industry," the band said in a statement. "Metal Blade is the first and only label that came to our minds when we were deciding on which label to present our demo with. We felt that they would understand and appreciate our style. We are confident that THIS ENDING and Metal Blade will have a strong future together and look forward to the outcome of this partnership. We will be very proud to bear the Metal Blade logo on our releases."
A full-length album is due to be recorded during August and September at Offbeat Studio in Stockholm, Sweden. No release date has yet been set.
