BAEST signs with Century Media; début album out this summer

Posted by AP on 28/03/18

Århus, Denmark-resident death metal mob BAEST has signed with Century Media Records, and plan to release their début album, “Danse Macabre”, through the label this summer. You can watch the music video for the first single from it, “Crosswhore”, at the bottom of this article. Commenting on the signing, the band offered:

Signing with Century Media is more than a dream come true. Hailing from the greatest period of heavy music ever, signing legendary acts such as Demolition Hammer, Grave, Unleashed and of course Bloodbath early on, CM is the perfect label for BAEST. The guys have an awesome taste and balls as big as the HM-2 tone.

Our debut “Danse Macabre” deserves the best possible launch, and CM makes that possible. The CM follows can expect an old school death metal album, honoring the genre’s forefathers, perfectors and legends, but with a brutal and conceptually true aura to it. This is death metal with a timeless appeal.

We want to also thank Toke Holt (Wannarock) and Jesper Mardahl from Promus, for their enormous amount of help and guidance!

Jens Prüter, the head of A&R for the label in Europe, meanwhile said:

This January I visited [When] Copenhell Freezes Over where the Copenhell festival is presenting Danish talent to fans and international business partners (it’s like South by Southwest — just more metal and much colder, ha ha). I had already heard some good things about BAEST and Jeppe from Copenhell made sure that I didn’t miss them at the sold-out VEGA club. It rarely happens that a bunch of business farts [are] immediately blown away by a band’s sheer force, but we all were and I couldn’t hold back signing them for CM. We are very proud to unleash this Nordic death metal beast upon mankind and hope you will like this bunch as much as we do! Thanks again to Jeppe Nissen from Copenhell and Anders Meisner from Music Export Denmark — and of course to BAEST!
