Polar, Pyralis, Kenosis & Distant Find New Label Homes


There’s been a few new signings this week with Polar, Pyralis, Kenosis and Distant all finding new homes. First up, UK outfit Polar found themselves a new label home at Arising Empire and will release a new album in the spring. Ahead of that a music video for their new single “Drive” has been released below. They commented of that:

“Releasing ‘Drive‘ is a huge step forward for Polar, the emotion that has gone into the new record is 100% real. We feel we are no longer the band that you all knew, this is the beginning of something pure. ‘Drive‘ is a symbol of the maturity of where the band is and where we are as people.”

Next up, Pyralis (ex-Disembodied, Too Pure To Die, etc.) signed a deal with Good Fight Music and will release a new EP titled “Everything Is Emptiness” through the label on November 30th. A music video for the first single, “Daggers“, is available now below with the band commenting of it:

“We recorded the video in the basement of the house that I’m living in this past Augus. My roommate went to film school so we figured we’d put his talent to use.

Based on our limited resources the video far exceeded our expectations. Thematically the video is the fire and blood you experience going thru a breakup with someone you love.

I feel like its a theme that everyone can relate to. We picked this song because it is the first song we wrote and I feel like it captured the raw intensity of this band.”

You can pre-order “Everything Is Emptinesshere.

Meanwhile, black metal duo Kenosis have landed at Prosthetic Records. They will release their debut EP “Consecrationem” through the label on 12″ vinyl on November 30th. Pre-orders for it are live here, with a stream of “Abraham’s Dagger” from it available below:

Wrapping up, Rotterdam, Netherlands based outfit Distant signed with Unique Leader. A music video for their single “Zeroten” arrived alongside word of the signing and can be found below. A new album planned for a 2019 release. The band commented:

Distant gladly announces the signing to Unique Leader Records. The record label’s repertoire consists of the most brutal and heavy formations this world has to offer, being part of that is an absolute honour to us. The band pursues to step up their game continuously and with the upcoming album in sight the record label’s playground is a perfect location for this. The signing of us to Unique Leader Records is an omen of for what is coming!”
