Sumerian Records have just confirmed what Jimmy speculated [CALLED IT! – Ed.] a while ago: French Christian metal group Betraying the Martyrs have signed with them for US distribution. I’m extremely pleased, as I’m quite a fan of these guys, finding their music to be catchy and insanely heavy. Here’s a statement from the band, released as a note by the band on their official facebook page:
We are extremely proud to be a part of the Sumerian family. Sumerian is more than a label. It’s a music madness and a great band factory. We deeply respect each band on the label and most of them influenced our own music. Sumerian has a few bands, they carefully pick and choose some of the greatest bands there is, so being with them is an honor. We couldn’t DREAM of a better team to work with our music.You live in North America? If you already know us, be ready cause we will hit your town very soon!!! And if you don’t know us, come by and see what 6 frog eaters can do (pardon our french). We count on you to come hang out, have a good time, mosh, pray, have a baguette and a croissant and discuss with us. ;)
Awesome stuff. You can bet I’m pumped. We’ll get you more info as it comes in!
