VEHEMENCE, a self-proclaimed “chaotic melodic death metal” band from Phoenix, Arizona, have inked a deal with Metal Blade Records and have entered The Salt Mine Studio in Mesa, Arizona to begin recording their debut album for the label, tentatively entitled God Was Created. The follow-up to 2000's The Thoughts From Which I Hide will contain 10 songs and will be released in the spring. In other news, a demo version of VEHEMENCE's track “Fantasy From Pain” will be featured on Metal Blade's upcoming compilation/sampler CD, entitled Uncorruputed Steel, due in late February. The CD, which is being issued in celebration of the label's 20 years in business, will include contributions from the group's recent signings as well as label veterans dating back to the early '80s. VEHEMENCE's cut, entitled “Fantasy From Pain”, can be downloaded from this location. Arizona metalheads can check out VEHEMENCE opening for AMON AMARTH and MARDUK at the Mason Jar in Phoenix on February 3rd.
