NILE - TO ENTER STUDIO IN JUNE4/28/09
 
NILE will be entering the studio on June 8th at Mana Recording in Tampa, Florida to work on their forthcoming second album on Nuclear Blast Records with Neil Kernon as producer and Erik Rutan as engineer.
"I'm really thrilled to be working on another album with NILE," states Kernon. "This will be the third album we've done together, and we have a great working relationship in the studio that has only improved with time. I am certain that this record will be our strongest team effort yet. It will also be a lot of fun to meet and work with Erik Rutan, who is going to be involved with the engineering end of things. I've been a fan of Erik's work in Hate Eternal and also his studio work for some time. He has a strong work ethic, and I'm very optimistic that this collaboration will be fruitful and inspiring for all of us."
Erik Rutan adds: "Having NILE, one of the best bands in the genre, recording with me at Mana is a tremendous honor. I very much look forward to this collaboration with NILE and Neil Kernon to make an amazing death metal classic!"
NILE will record at several locations throughout June and July. A mid-October 2009 release is being planned worldwide via Nuclear Blast Records. NILE will then tour Europe in November of 2009 and January / February 2010 in North America, followed by tours in Australia, South America, Japan, Pacific Rim, Mexico, Central America and India.

NUCLEAR BLAST signs DECREPIT BIRTH5/26/08
 
NUCLEAR BLAST is very proud to announce the newest signing: Technical Brutal Death Metal institution DECREPIT BIRTH from Santa Cruz, California.



The band, founded in 2001, has so far released two highly acclaimed albums, "?And Time Begins" and "Diminishing Between Worlds" in 2003 and 2008.



Here�s a statement from the band:



"NUCLEAR BLAST has a special tradition for signing some of the best metal acts of all time including DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, TESTAMENT and EXODUS just to name a few. We feel very lucky and honored to be a part of the family! Our intention is to take the music to the next level and continue to release quality progressive death metal music with better tours and so on. We are confident to have NUCLEAR BLAST in our corner! We also want to thank Unique Leader Records very much for the years of dedication to DECREPIT BIRTH.



After we complete more touring in support of the current release, we will begin pre-production for the next album."



U.S. Label rep comments:



?First of all, I have to thank Deron Miller (CKY, World Under Blood) because every time saw him he?d tell me that I needed to sign this band, and he was right! The band has developed so much from their first record to the new one that it?s almost a whole different band. Technical Death Metal hasn?t sounded this good in years! We welcome Decrepit Birth to the Nuclear Blast family!!!?

Music piracy :( --- Please comment on this...3/14/08
 
Hey metalheads,

Sadly today we discovered that one of our "friends" posted a leaked version of an upcoming Nuclear Blast release in his blog. This was very disturbing news for us.

Artists suffer from music piracy.We are certain that you as a fan understand this fact.

Our artists work hard to offer you (their dedicated fans) great pieces of music. By ripping the music and illegally spreading it across file sharing websites, their work is debased. Furthermore, when people promote the illegal distribution of copyrighted music on Bebo.com or anywhere in the world wide web, piracy is encouraged, which is something that needs to stop.

The fact is, this does not only violate Bebo.com's terms of service, it also violates the copyrights of Nuclear Blast Records and harms your favorite artists.

Finally this is what Nuclear Blast Records cares about the most - our artists. If they suffer from music piracy, there will be less releases and consequently less good music for the dedicated fans (yeah, that's you) to enjoy.

Nuclear Blast Records therefore would like to encourage you, the true fans, to stand up for your favorite artists and take action against music piracy. Please feel free to inform us or Bebo.com about any violation of copyrights.

Our artists, Bebo.com and Nuclear Blast Records really appreciate the support of the metal community in fighting music piracy.

"Do not promote the illegal distribution of copyrighted material. For the sake of good music!"


Cheers,

Nuclear Blast Records \m/



P.S.: If Nuclear Blast Records takes notice of any violations of its copyrights, we will reserve the right to take legal actions.

P.P.: Please feel free to comment on this. Let us know your thoughts....

Hi everybody,

Our sincere apologies to all of you who weren't contacted, before they were removed as a band member, moderator or before their band profile was removed.

In advance Bebo checked the respective profiles that were being taken over by Nuclear Blast Records for inactivity. The policy of Bebo prohibits taking over active profiles without contacting the creator. So any profile, which was taken over without any notice to the creator, has not been accessed in a period longer than 3 months.
In case our assumptions concerning the inactivity of your profiles were wrong, again our apologies to everybody, affected by this step.

We hope you can understand the label's obligation to our artists, to maintain their copyrights and publicity. Hands down, you have made the biggest step of all, by creating really successful and beautiful Bebo profiles. Thank you very much, as well on behalf of our artists. We really appreciate your time and efforts you have spent in creating and maintaining the profiles. Thanks.

Multiple unofficial band profiles, however, are quite confusing and not helpful for fans to get an update on the most recent news about the band.

Finally, we hope that you will continue to stay active on Bebo and enjoy the music of your favorite bands.


Cheers,

Nuclear Blast Records \m/
