Thrash Metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA sign worldwide deal with Century Media Records; To support Arch Enemy in Spain and Portugal early December!
CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS proudly announces the worldwide signing of the Thrash Metal band ANGELUS APATRIDA, the most promising and threatening Metal band from Spain!
This young commando was born in the spanish town of Albacete in the year 2000 and perfectly combines both the aggression and the melodic edge of classic 80’s Thrash Metal with a breathtaking modern southern fury that results in an impressive blend of rage, attitude and a high level of technical skills, rarely seen with young bands like this.
ANGELUS APATRIDA comment on the signing as follows: "We are extremely enthusiastic about this opportunity to show around what we are made of! It's an honour for us to become part of the Century Media Records family, one of the labels with the best reputation worldwide and a home to some of the bands we admire the most and grew up listening to!”
ANGELUS APATRIDA’s band name mixes spanish and latin language and can be translated into english as ‘stateless’ or ‘renegade’ angels. Influenced by the early Bay Area Thrash Metal and N.W.O.B.H.M. scenes and more specifically bands like Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Anthrax, Overkill, Pantera, Testament or Annihilator, ANGELUS APATRIDA have crafted their career in their spanish homeland so far with two independent album releases,“Evil Unleashed” (2006) and “Give ‘Em War” (2007), as well as countless of live-appearances on larger national festivals (Lorca Rock, Alternavigo, Metalway Festival, etc.) and the clubs of most of the country’s larger cities with acts like Barón Rojo, Destruction, Sepultura and many more.
ANGELUS APATRIDA are currently finishing the songwriting process for their Century Media debut album, tentatively entitled “Clockwork” and to be recorded in January 2010. In the meantime, ANGELUS APATRIDA will be supporting labelmates Arch Enemy on their upcoming dates in Spain and Portugal alongside Abigail Williams. Here are the exact dates:
