From the Pulverised HQ in Singapore: It is our greatest pleasure to welcome one of the pioneering and oldest bands in death metal history to our roster: The legendary MASTER!
States A&R Manager Calvin: "MASTER was and is still truly an influential band and I would daringly assume that a lot of the early extreme metal bands were somehow influenced by MASTER.... Paul Speckmann was really enthusiastic to join the Pulverised family and furthermore, very easy to work with. We hope that with our support on the upcoming new album, it will be MASTER's most devastating and crushing album yet!"
Comments Paul Speckmann: "It's an honor and a pleasure to be signing with a real label like Pulverised Records. I really feel like this label will believe in MASTER like a label should. It's really been difficult to find a label that's willing to dedicate itself to a band like MASTER who incidentally has been surviving the underground since 1983. I certainly have confidence in Pulverised Records and hopefully we can bring the band along to the next level. Forget all the cheap imitators, there's only one MASTER consisting of Speckmann, Nejezchleba and Pradlovsky, so be forewarned. The soon to be recorded new CD will be as brutal as its predecessor. Look for speed, intensity and as always objective lyrical content. For myself, I certainly live through my music, it is certainly my muse."
Speckmann and co. are set to commence work on the new material for a full-length album in August and the new album should be completed at the end of 2009. More details and announcements will be made.
MASTER will kick off their tour on 5th of June 2009 with two shows in Germany before proceeding for a 21-date American tour starting on 8th of July 2009 onwards.
