Los Angeles has been a breeding ground for some of the finest traditional heavy metal and in recent years a younger generation of bands have taken that ‘80s influences and created a new sound. Blade Killer is leading this revolution of classic metal, as evidenced by the group’s 2014 self-titled EP and countless shows around the Southern California area.
“We’re excited to announce that Blade Killer has joined forces with M-Theory Audio to release our upcoming full-length album,” states bassist Kelsey Wilson. “There is much to look forward to on the horizon and we couldn’t be more stoked to have the support of M-Theory Audio and all of you!”
“Blade Killer is another band I’ve been eyeing for some time and wanted to bring to the label. I loved the EP and feel their potential and commitment to metal is unparalleled,” explains M-Theory founder Marco Barbieri. “I’m pleased to publicly announce the signing and look forward to hearing the group’s new recordings.”
Currently Blade Killer is diligently finishing up recording nine new songs to be released early next year, but will also embark on a string of west coast shows next month supporting Bat, including an L.A. show which features the return of old-school thrash metal band Evil Dead.
