BASICK RECORDS are super stoked to announce the signing of their first international band, A DARK ORBIT.
Emerging from the depths of St. Louis USA, A DARK ORBIT brings you a ruthless and progressive sound only a few can tame. Forming in early 2008 and solidifying the lineup a few months after, ADO were quick to hit the scene. After just a few shows they were instantly recognized as a breath of fresh air to the stagnating US Hardcore / Metal circuit, and were quickly picked up as support for shows with Emmure, Born Of Osiris, Architects and Misery Signals.
Big things are planned for next year, starting off with the digital release of the incredible 'VOYAGER EP' on January 12th, 2009.
BASICK RECORDS are stoked to announce that MY MINDS WEAPON have signed to Germany's DRAKKAR ENTERTAINMENT for release throughout Europe !
In a developing licensing deal between Basick an Drakkar the band will see thier debut album 'The Carrion Sky' released throughout mainland Europe via Sony BMG on November 28th 2008. This will include Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Poland.

Here's the official statement from Drakkar label boss, Marius Kopec:
"MY MINDS WEAPON are among the new league of British metal acts which impress their audience with demanding artistic standards, intelligent lyrics and amazing perfection. MY MINDS WEAPON’s music is sinister, oppressive, technical and i was instantly wowed by their brutal mix of tech metal and metalcore in combination with a tremendous atmospheric density."
