BLACK TONGUE has signed a worldwide deal with SOAR/Century Media Records. Acknowledged as one of the fastest rising DIY acts on the UK Metal underground, the down tempo mob have exploded onto the scene with two crushingly heavy EPs in the past year and a half.
Formed by members of modern Grind/Death Metal enigmas INFANT ANNIHILATOR, BLACK TONGUE have exploded onto the scene in the most bombastic of fashions after the release of their first EP 'Falsifier', which quickly established the band's gruesome intentions and resulted and a online epidemic of new fans. Now already renowned as one of the most devastating live acts in the UK underground, BLACK TONGUE delivers the sort of sonic barrage that is akin to receiving an acid-tipped sledgehammer to the gut.
Those unfamiliar with the band can check out the video for 'Coma', which also features guest vocals from now-label mates MARTYR DEFILED's Matt Jones.

The song "Waste" can also be listened to here:
Too clinically brutal to be a Doom band, too sludgy to be defined as Death Metal, too Dark to be labeled as a Hardcore band - The nightmarish soundscapes BT create simply have to stand alone.
The band's official statement for the signing was: "We are proud to have become part of such a strong UK label. Hopefully we can add an extra edge to their already powerful roster. Siege Of Amida have done so much for the UK scene - now the label has also merged with Century Media we can't wait to see where this will take us on a worldwide level."
The band's debut full length is set for a tentative release of early 2015.
