BASICK RECORDS are super stoked to announce the signing of their first international band, A DARK ORBIT.
Emerging from the depths of St. Louis USA, A DARK ORBIT brings you a ruthless and progressive sound only a few can tame. Forming in early 2008 and solidifying the lineup a few months after, ADO were quick to hit the scene. After just a few shows they were instantly recognized as a breath of fresh air to the stagnating US Hardcore / Metal circuit, and were quickly picked up as support for shows with Emmure, Born Of Osiris, Architects and Misery Signals.
Big things are planned for next year, starting off with the digital release of the incredible 'VOYAGER EP' on January 12th, 2009.

BASICK RECORDS are stoked to announce that FELLSILENT have signed to SUMERIAN RECORDS for release in the US !
In what will develop into a multi album licensing deal, the band will see thier debut album 'The Hidden Words' released in the US early next year via Victory Records Distribution with a full US tour lined up to supprt the album.
Sumerian was founded by TKO booking agent Ash Avildsen (who represents CALIBAN, CARCASS, INTO THE MOAT, ION DISSONANCE, NAPALM DEATH and VADER among others) and hosts some truly awesome bands such as THE FACELESS, BORN OF OSIRIS and VEIL OF MAYA among others.
Here's what Ash had to say about the deal: "After hearing the first 40 seconds of FELLSILENT's song "Immerse" I knew there was something very promising about to happen. After hearing the rest of the song, I knew it was now my duty to get this band in front of as many people as possible. I am very proud to announce FELLSILENT as the first overseas Sumerian Records band, and their style of metal is exactly what we started the label on: progressive, brutal, technical but still memorable with challenging but infectious rhythms and amazing uses of melody while still being heavy, dynamic and cutting-edge throughout real displays of songwriting. Keep your eye out for FELLSILENT in North America, as we will be making sure to get these boys over here as soon as possible in 2009!"
