Announces First 2008 Releases / North American Distro Through Ferret Music!
Blazing across the pond with such speed and ferocity that it made the Atlantic boil like the contents of a scolding hot cauldron, London's Siege of Amida Records is making the most bludgeoning Anglo-American pact by joining forces with Ferret Music. Like a pack of savage jackal's about to be unleashed on a meaty carcass, Siege of Amida and Ferret are proud to let loose the following artists that will thrust an onslaught onto eardrums everywhere.
THE BREATHING PROCESS
In Waking: Divinity
(January 22nd, 2008)
The first in a set of bands ready to launch a flank attack from leftfield on the world of loud music will come on January 22 as The Breathing Process are set to drop their much anticipated LP In Waking: Divinity. Composed of a rabid hybrid of guttural growls mixed in with icy synth vapors, these New England lads have finally discovered a secret recipe which sees to it that power metal isn't just for pussies anymore. Brave Words For Bloody Knuckles says "Powerful, Epic, Immense, The Breathing Process are bringing vitality, darkness and a new level of brutality to the world of metalcore. World class stuff!"
Shredding drums and cacophonous DEFCON 1 like melodies peppered with abrasive thrash metal, The Breathing Process, will have their names etched in stone for years to come and can be seen touring the States this January / February with The Classic Struggle, The Ghost Inside and From Graves Of Valor.

THE RED DEATH
(January 22nd, 2008)
"The Red Death have unleashed an utterly relentless, surgically precise neck-snapper of an album. If this doesn't quicken your pulse, check your vitals - you may be dead" – Metal Hammer. The Red Death is bracing for their sophomore release Godmakers (January 22nd) following much buzz among critics in 2007. With the dual riff goblin spawned by guitarists Aaron Conti and Mark Kelley placed alongside the fire-breathing voice of singer Paul Hamblin, The Red Death have created what is quite possibly the most powerful beast sired from a brutal tryst of speed metal and serrated hardcore.
A GIRL A GUN A GHOST
Through the Eyes of Ahab
(March 4th, 2008)
Savannah, GA's A Girl A Gun A Ghost bring their powerful brand of hardcore punk (think a harder Paint it Black or a slowed down version of The Swarm) to the masses for some of the sickest and most pummeling breakdowns heard in ages. AGAGAG bring hardcore back to the glory days with their upcoming full length Through the Eyes of Ahab (March 4th)
THE PARTISAN TURBINE
The Partisan Turbine
(February 5th, 2008)
Last but far from least comes the self-titled album from Long Island's ThePartisan Turbine (out February 5th), who's rapid-fire, machine gun brand of speed-death leave bloodied corpses rotting in their wake. Fans of Discordance Axis take note, and prepare to have your face ripped clean off as these New York boys finally bring their local death-metal scene something to brag about once again.
