New Signing: ANCIENT RITES

ANCIENT RITES sign with Massacre Records!

The quartet hailing from Belgium and the Netherlands was formed back in the 80's, being one of the first bands to play metal with occult and historically inspired lyrics when the metal scene back then was dominated by glam and alternative music.

During the band's history, ANCIENT RITES overcame several blows of fate, including band members passing away or bad experiences with promoters and labels. But all this didn't stop the band from continuing their journey!

The band's upcoming sixth studio album "Laguz" marks a new chapter in the band's history.

It's an invitation to enter long forgotten worlds through dark/historical lyrics and music that combines fierce metal with classical orchestrations.

ANCIENT RITES' new album is set to be released in late February 2015 via Massacre Records!

New Signing: MICHAEL JESSEN

MICHAEL JESSEN has joined the Massacre Records family!

The Danish musician picked up the guitar by the age of 15, and a childhood friend taught him how to play the main riff of AC/DC's "Hells Bells". Needless to say that this was the beginning of something great!

MICHAEL JESSEN played in numerous bands, which all had one thing in common: guitar-oriented rock music.

After the split of his band "High Octane" in 2012, Michael wanted to try out his talent as a solo artist and was soon joined by vocalist Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), Mads Grunnet (drums) and Christoffer Hoås (bass), with whom he recorded an a 4-track EP as well as his upcoming album "Memories".

MICHAEL JESSEN's new album "Memories" will be released on December 5, 2014 via Massacre Records!

New Signing: THE ARCANE ORDER

Please welcome THE ARCANE ORDER to the Massacre Records family!

Everything began back in 2000, when TAO guitarist Flemming C. Lund (Invocator, ex-Autumn Leaves) formed the band, which was called Scavenger back then.

About 3 years later, everything began to take form when Flemming recruited fellow musicians bassist Boris Tandrup (I'll Be Damned, ex-Autumn Leaves) and drummer Morten Løwe Sørensen (Amaranthe, ex-HateSphere, ex-Mercenary).

In May 2005, THE ARCANE ORDER finished recording a demo with vocalist Kasper Thomsen (ex-Raunchy), which then led to a deal with Metal Blade Records after the band's name Scavenger was changed to THE ARCANE ORDER.

The band's debut "The Machinery Of Oblivion" was nominated for best debut album at the Danish Metal Awards in late 2006.

In April 2007, guitarist Kasper Kirkegaard (Slow Death Factory) was added to TAO's line-up.

The band's second album "In The Wake Of Collisions" was released in early 2008 and gained fantastic reviews worldwide.

During these years, THE ARCANE ORDER played with bands like Testament, HateSphere, Suffocation and Carcass. The band went on a hiatus in 2010, but returned with a 2-track promo in mid-2014 and a new record deal with Massacre Records, signed in late 2014!

The new album of Denmark's hard-hitting unit THE ARCANE ORDER is set to be released in 2015 via Massacre Records!
