Florida based Death Metal legends Massacre are joining up with Nuclear Blast Records. With this unholy alliance, comes news of a new album from the band as well. Their fourth album, and the first in seven years is coming from the label later this year. Vocalist Kam Lee had this to say about the news.

I would first like to give my appreciation to NUCLEAR BLAST for signing MASSACRE. It’s a long time dream of mine to be a part of the metal family under the NB flag and I am even more so grateful that it’s with my signature band. We have a lot of plans for the future of MASSACRE, and what a great place to be making such a proper return other than one of the best independent metal labels in the world.

Their bassist Michael Borders also had this to say about the pairing.

It’s a privilege at this point in our careers  to be associated with the big name in metal labels, we did our best to make this a proper Massacre release, an authentic sounding representation of a band we started over thirty years ago.

Massacre came from the Florida swamps and brought us classic Death Metal in the style of Death, Obituary, and Six Feet Under.

We’ll keep you updated at THS about news on their upcoming record.
