OPHIS - Inked A Deal With Cyclone Empire

One of the finest, most extreme and most promising funeral doom/death bands from Germany, Ophis, have signed a record deal with Cyclone Empire Records. Their next, third full-lenght, is already in recording process and the release date is planned for late summer/early fall 2014.
Cyclone Empire commented about their new family member: "We are very happy to welcome this cult band and their dark, heavy, brute, grim, yet beautiful (Funeral-)Doom/Death from the bowels of rotting dinosaurs (like the band would call it J) in our little Cyclone Empire family!"
And Ophis stated: "After we already worked with Cyclone Empire with our latest release, the Effigies Of Desolation compilation, we decided to stick to this label. We had offers from several other companies, and pretty good ones, too. We were also satisfied with the label we had before. So you see: they did something very right!! We are as happy as a doom band can be to release our upcoming album Abhorrence In Opulence on Cyclone Empire, because they have the modus operandi of big, professional companies, and at the same time the ethics of devoted underground labels. And that’s exactly what we need. Cheers on a great cooperation!"
Ophis (in Greek: Serpent) was founded in the German harbour city of Hamburg in late 2001, as an outlet for its members very own darker sides: an abyssic immersion of slow monolithic doom metal and raw, nihilistic and staggering old school death metal. Recently, Cyclone Empire re-released the debut album and the first EP as a compilation entitled Effigies Of Desolation, which was accompanied by yet another European tour, this time with Evoken. Link
