Ontario, Canada's GEORGIAN SKULL has inked a deal with Italy's Scarlet Records. The group's debut album, "Mother Armageddon, Healing Apocalypse", will be released later in the year. The artwork was designed by Vince Locke (CANNIBAL CORPSE).
Commented singer/guitarist Al "The Yeti" Bones (also frontman for USA's sludge kings THE MIGHTY NIMBUS and Canadian stoner band MISTER BONES): "The new record will blow the fuckin' doors wide open on who we are and what we're doing musically at this moment in time. It is more than just a vibe. It's our lives. We put our heart and souls in this record and it aint nothing to be fucked with... This is the real deal.”
According to a press release, GEORGIAN SKULL draws inspiration from 1970s hard rock and heavy metal — BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN and THIN LIZZY — fused with heavier acts such as DOWN, CLUTCH, PANTERA, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and ENTOMBED. They have shared the stage with such groups as ANVIL, CRYPTOPSY, TODAY IS THE DAY, GOATWHORE, TROUBLE, SONS OF OTIS, and many, many more.
