Dutch death/black metal band SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION has inked a deal with Napalm Records.
Napalm A&R Sebastian Muench comments: “We are super excited to announce the signing of Holland’s, and arguably Europe’s, best up-and-coming death metal band SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION! The 2017 debut album, ‘Anthology Of Curiosities’, was a hate-spitting death metal masterpiece.”
The band added: “We are very proud and excited to announce that we have signed with the mighty Napalm Records. We are very happy to be working with them and are looking forward to releasing an album with them soon!”
At the moment, SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION are working on new material for an early 2019 release.
Founded in 2014 in Eidhoven, SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION managed very quickly to establish an amazing live reputation and got lots of invitations from venues and smaller festivals. This was noticed by Eindhoven Metal Meeting, who gave them a chance to present themselves for a bigger audience.
It has always been a dream of vocalist Els Prins to start an all-female death metal band, but she didn’t seem to be able find the right group of girls to make this dream reality — that is, until she met guitarist Simone van Straten. They released their first single, ‘Boundaries’, in July 2014 and played their first show one month later.
