Dan Swano signs long-term worldwide deal with Century Media Records

It’s with great pride and joy that Century Media Records can announce the signing of a long-term worldwide deal with Swedish singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer extraordinaire Dan Swanö.

Most dedicated metalheads will not only be able to call themselves owners of certain releases by one Dan’s many outstanding bands/projects (EDGE OF SANITY, NIGHTINGALE, etc.), but also the work at his own Unisound studio will surely have left a mark in everyone’s record collection at some point: OPETH, KATATONIA, DISSECTION, MERCILESS, 59 TIMES THE PAIN, DARK FUNERAL, HAIL OF BULLETS, MARDUK, MILLENCOLIN and NASUM, to name but a few.

Swanö has been no stranger to Century Media Records: He was originally involved with the death metal supergroup BLOODBATH (also featuring members of OPETH and KATATONIA), who released the Breeding Death EP as well as the amazing first two albums, Resurrection Through Carnage and Nightmares Made Flesh, via Century Media. Most recently, Swanö has been heavily working again as producer and mixer of albums, including releases by Century Media artists such as ASPHYX, GRAND SUPREME BLOOD COURT, ODDLAND and MORGOTH.

Dan Swanö comments about the signing:

“It’s been 23 years since I signed my first ever record-deal, but never before have I been this excited…I have now signed with Century Media Records!

I bought the first release from Century Media back in 1989, and it is amazing to see how much the label has grown over the years.

After working with CM for a few compilation CDs and for two and a half albums with BLOODBATH, I knew it would be the perfect home for me whenever I felt like returning to the recording-industry as a performer again.

And now…I am back! With a vengeance!!!”

The first result of the new cooperation between Dan Swanö and Century Media will be the release of his newly founded metal outfit WITHERSCAPE, which sees Dan teaming with another talented multi-instrumentalist, Ragnar Widerberg, to create an intense concept album– which should not only musically please fans of earlier Swanö-works likeMoontower or EDGE OF SANITY, but also attract fans of contemporary progressively atmospheric metal in the vein of OPETH, BARREN EARTH and AMORPHIS.

Swanö comments about the upcoming WITHERSCAPE album:

“I have just completed the final mixes of the first album from my new project WITHERSCAPE.

Fans of my ‘Moontower’ album and the catchier parts of EDGE OF SANITY won’t be disappointed!

I sing, both clean and growl, play drums and keyboards. Ragnar Widerberg plays all guitars & bass and has co-written almost all the tracks with me.”

 

Look forward to a late July 2013 release for WITHERSCAPE’s The Inheritance via Century Media.

Here are some online links to past works involving Dan Swanö:

Rock the Nation America announces “Voices From The Dark” tour in 2013 featuring MARDUK and MOONSPELL

This February / March 2013, Rock the Nation America is proud to present the elite from the dark way of the force, some of metal’s darkest and most ambitious prodigies that the scene has to offer. From the cold lands of Sweden, the return of the infernal black metal sons MARDUK. Co-headlining is Portugal’s dark gothic heavy hitters MOONSPELL…Both promise a show you won’t soon forget! Backing the assault is Colombian / USA black metal rising demons INQUISITION. Continuing the event in fashion is Italy’s gothic melodic sensation THE FORESHADOWING, and to start up the fire, introducing Sweden’s dark rock / metal band DEATH WOLF (featuring MARDUK members).

“It’s with great delight that we return to your shores again in support of our latest album ‘Serpent Sermon'”, adds Morgan from MARDUK. “We look forward to march across the continent delivering the gospel of the worm. No mercy will be given!!”

MOONSPELL’s Fernando Ribeiro also comments:
“The time for a North American tour is finally up and we are proud to return overseas to bring you all the darkened magic of our Portuguese legend and sound, a rebellion made of passion and communion with the fans. We invite you all to witness the charm and power of ‘Alpha Noir’ and ‘Omega White’ but also to celebrate with us our Twentieth anniversary as a band and time travel with us to ‘Wolfheart,’ ‘Irreligious’ and songs never played before in the American territory. The time has come to gather the pack, let the games begin!!!”

“INQUISITION is pleased to accept the invitation for a return to a second North American tour and evoke the magic of our majesty”, adds Dagon from INQUISITION. “We hope to see those who missed us recently and those loyal supporters who choose to return. This shall be our final full North American tour until the new album is released in late 2013”.

Alex from THE FORESHADOWING also comments:
“It will be our first time in North America and we are very proud to hit the road with such great bands!!! Are you ready to be part of the Second World?”

“Right upon the release of our second album we will be marching across the States on this killer tour, a hard hitting line up of bands ready to bring darkness over the continent”, adds Morgan while introducing DEATH WOLF. “It’s the first proper tour DEATH WOLF is doing and soon, the march of the DEATH WOLF will begin! The circle of abomination is coming…”

All of these warriors will be kicking off 2013 in style– this is one tour not to be missed!
