Transcend Music has announced a major restructuring program incorporating new signings and streamlining measures which strengthen its position as a force to be reckoned with at the business end of rock and metal. The new measures see Transcend absorbing the associated businesses of renowned management companies The Legacy Agency and RMR Management, strengthening their artist roster and offering a variety of unique acts. Coupled with this, Transcend Music has confirmed new signing MALEFICE, who are currently touring the U.K. before heading back into the studio to complete their third album.

The all-new Transcend roster now includes classic acts such as FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM and VIKING SKULL, alongside metal stalwarts like SACRED MOTHER TONGUE, MALEFICE and recently reformed BOSSK, mixing it up with some of the hottest new acts on the scene in the shape of THE DIRTY YOUTH, HEIGHTS and HEART OF A COWARD.

Transcend head honcho Rob Ferguson said of the changes: "We recognize that the music industry is changing, and our business model has been re-drawn in order to embrace these changes. The focus of our business is the talent we are nurturing and we firmly believe that our current roster represents some of the very best in classic and contemporary rock and metal artists. We are not a record company in the traditional sense and we are not just a management company. We are a total music company offering positive solutions to enhance, encourage and grow the careers of those who work with us. We have an amazing team of fiercely passionate and enthusiastic individuals who are ready to take on the world!"

MALEFICE's third full-length album, "Awaken The Tides", was released in July 2011 via Metal Blade Records. The 10-song effort was recorded at The Face studios in Reading with drums laid down at Fortress Studios in London. All tracks were mixed and mastered by Justin Hill.
