SonicAbuse favourites Alunah recently signed not one, but two record deals and we couldn’t be happier for them. Check out the following press release and then go check them out if you haven’t already.
It has been announced that Birmingham based Alunah have signed a deal with Psychedoomelic Records; an Austrian label dedicated to doom metal who have worked with such notable bands as Ramesses, Pale Divine, Penance, Orodruin, Voodoo Shock and Wall of Sleep etc. In the same week the band also signed a re-release deal with Seattle based Doom Metal Alliance Records.
Alunah, who formed in 2006 have become known for their relentless gig and touring activity off the back of their “Fall to Earth” EP (Nasoni Records, Germany) and debut album “Call of Avernus” (Catacomb Records, UK). The band will release their second album in 2012 through their new deal with Psychedoomelic Records, and will re-release “Call of Avernus” on vinyl later in 2011 with Doom Metal Alliance Records. Alunah will be touring in August 2011 with sludge legends Sally (ex- Rise Above Records / Mistress / Penance) and doom metallers Lifer (ex-Acrimony / Black Eyed
Sophie Willett (vocals and guitar) commented, “We are extremely happy to be working with both Psychedoomelic and Doom Metal Alliance, we’ve known the former for a while as trading partners and their reputation for putting out great music precedes them. The guys behind DMA have been avid supporters of Alunah since we started. We’ve worked super hard in the past few years and it’s great that labels as awesome as these have recognised that.”
