Beyond Creation are one the best progressive/technical death metal groups. I typically try to avoid sweeping claims like this, but that’s just how I see it; the band are right up there alongside the likes of Obscura and Spawn of Possession. Their debut album The Aura speaks for itself, and apparently we weren’t the only ones who noticed. The band has just signed a deal with Season of Mist Records, who will re-release The Aura on May 14th.
Here’s the good word:
Season Of Mist is proud to announce the signing of progressive, technical death metal unit BEYOND CREATION.
Regarding the signing, the band issued the following statement: “We are very proud to be part of the excellent Season of Mist family! SoM have clearly established themselves as one of the master labels of the metal genre. We’ve been listening to awesome bands from their roster for many years, so it’s a very pleasant surprise to have this opportunity. The hard work we’ve always put in will continue at a new level through our collaboration with Season of Mist and we can’t wait to see where it will all propel us from here!”
The Montreal, QC, Canada-based band (Simon Girard: Guitars, Vocals; Dominic Lapointe : Bass, Kévin Chartré: Guitars, Philippe Boucher, Drums) will have their incredible debut album, ‘The Aura,’ reissued with an exclusive bonus track via the label on May 14th in North America.
