Desecresy Re-Signs With Xtreem Music For Third Album Release

Xtreem Music is more than proud to announce a new agreement with Finnish deathsters Desecresy, who have re-inked a new deal to see their next albums released on what has been their home label since Desecresy’s inception. Xtreem Music comments:

“Desecresy whose debut album ‘Arches of Entropy’ was released in November 2010, has been building a reputation on their own as one of the heaviest and most interesting Death Metal bands to come out from Finland in the recent years.

“Even though their debut album was well received, that was nothing compared to their sophomore release ‘The Doom Skeptron’ in June 2012, which got nothing but superb reactions everywhere, being hailed as one of the best Death Metal releases of the year.

“The band is currently working on their 3rd full length album, although there’s no exact plans for its recording, but could be expected by the end of 2013. Follow Desecresy through their official Facebook here.”
