April 11, 2014, 5 years ago
Iranian death metal warriors AZOOMA have signed a worldwide contract with Spanish label Xtreem Music. As a result the band will be releasing an EP, entitled A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster in both Digital and CD formats soon.
Guitarist Ahmad Tokallou commented: “This is what we have been waiting for and it is not only because of our hard work, but also the help from some great and kind friends, who are invisible to others but shared their mighty energy and kindness with us... Xtreem Music is a great company, and this encourages us and give us more hope to go forward... you will hear more from Azooma!“
“It’s one of the best things that can happen for an artist to co-operate with a good and reliable company such as Xtreem Music,” drummer Saeed Shariat says. “I have a good feeling about it and we hope to satisfy metal heads more... Just wait for our EP, it will make necks ache!“
Dave Rotten, Xtreem Music president and main man of legendary AVULSED stated the following: “The very first time I heard Azooma, I was extremely surprised by their combination of sheer brutality and technical skills at the same time as their EP sounds really heavy with a great production. I’m running the label since 1990 and this is the very first band from Middle East that I decided to sign. They have the right attitude and overall... they sound fucking great!! Hopefully Azooma will help to break barriers for other good bands in these countries where extreme metal isn’t that popular."
Azooma have paid tribute to legendary MORBID ANGEL by covering heir 'Dawn Of Angry' song. The video was launched online and surprisingly posted by Morbid Angel themselves on their official Facebook page. Check out the video below:
Release date for Azooma's debut EP hasn't been scheduled yet, but will take place during the summer, so stay tuned for when an advance track, cover art and release date will be announced.
