Swedish death metal trio Under The Church have signed to extreme metal label Pulverised Records and hope to release their debut album in 2014.


Featuring ex-Nirvana 2002 members Erik Qvick on drums and guitars and Lars Henriksson on bass, Mik Annetts (Bastard/ex-Hostile) completes their raw, old-school sound on vocals. Having only formed earlier in 2013 they wasted no time in releasing a three-track demo with the frankly unoriginal title of ‘Demo 2013’ that has undoubtedly led to this deal.


Speaking about their new deal the band said: “We are very happy to announce that we have signed a deal with the label Pulverised Records and are already working on the debut CD that we aim to release in 2014. Pulverised Records has a great roster of diverse bands, so for us it’s a good feeling to be able to work together with Pulverised. We have already started writing the new material and we will start pre-production/demos for the recording in early 2014. Those tunes are the next step and extension of what we have written so far…. so you can expect more raw death metal from UNDER THE CHURCH!”


Thankfully the music on their demo was far more original than the name, and made various people in the industry sit up and take note before Pulverised snapped them up.


Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin commented: “Truth be told, Erik Qvick wrote to us a while back and was wanting some feedback regarding Under The Church. There was no real concrete plan to record a full-length album, but it was very obvious that we had to push them into that plan! After a couple of e-mail conversations, the deal was sealed and pre-production demos of the new album should be coming our way soon. We are extremely honoured and excited to be a part of the Under The Church vile-campaign, and expect an authentic exhumation of real classic Swedish Death Metal in 2014!”


If you just can’t wait until 2014 then give their demo a spin here.
