Swallow the Sun signed to Century Media Records

Finnish melodic doom metal band Swallow the Sun have signed a worldwide record deal with Century Media Records. The label, whose roster include acts like At The Gates, In Flames, Napalm Death, Finntroll and Lacuna Coil, will release the group’s sixth album in the winter.

Jens Prüter, head of A&R at Century Media Records in Europe, commented: "It's probably no news that we love the dark side of Finland. But we are very proud to finally work with one of the darkest Finnish bands that have spread their gospel of doom for the last 15 years.”

Swallow the Sun’s vocalist Mikko Kotamäki said about the deal: "We are really excited to be a part of the Century Media family, of a label which has done great work for years with many bands. This is also good news for all our fans because from now on our coming albums are more easily found all over the world.”
