Hells Headbangers Records are proud to announce the signing of Greek Black Metal Masters ZEMIAL for their album "Nykta". A teaser track can be found here. Vorskaath elaborates further: "So here it is at last! I am very pleased to announce that the long-awaited "Nykta" will be released via Hells Headbangers Records worldwide. As some of you have already noticed, a teaser of "Nykta" is already uploaded to give you a taste of what is to come. Yet, the scope of "Nykta" reaches farther, into new territory and the music itself will speak louder than anything I have to say here. Good things take time and the time for this good thing is almost here. Now Hells Headbangers were ZEMIAL’s very first distribution partner in the USA when I decided to release "In Monumentum" via NYX and have remained one of our closest and most valued associates over the past 4 years. Having secured a major distribution deal with RED handling Canada and the USA and PHD / Code7 handling international distribution, Hells Headbangers will ensure that the music of ZEMIAL will finally become widely available to friends and fans across the globe – an important step for us after years of very limited distribution. In the meantime, the recording of "Nykta" continues. What I have uploaded is only a rough version of the final product. However I am very glad to see everybody’s appreciation of the new material and sound I thank all of you who wrote with positive commentary. Being the musician, sound-engineer and producer at the same time is a challenging task and your opinions and feedback give me that much needed objectivity. I anticipate having completed "Nykta" by September. When it is done, it will fully represent the vision I have in mind and something to be remembered as progressive and musical. No compromise! In the meantime, keep listening and sending in your messages and comments. I appreciate! Forever."
