Swedish death metal band Evocation have signed a worldwide album contract with Metal Blade Records, revealing this development on November 10th, 2016.

Guitarist Marko Palmen commented: “We are extremely proud to announce the signing of a new world wide recording agreement with Metal Blade Records. Evocation will from this day on be part of a legendary roster consisting of bands such as Behemoth, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Mercyful Fate etc.

“For us it was a natural choice to join Metal Blade Records since we already for several years had a successful co-operation with them for the licensing of Evocation’s first three albums in the USA and Canada. Metal Blade Records is also a label that is widely known for its commitment within the death metal scene, which for us means a lot.

“On behalf of Evocation, I can only say that we are very pleased to have found a new home for the band. Huge thanks to Brian Slagel, our old friend Andreas Reissnauer and all the people at Metal Blade Records for making us a part of the Metal Blade family!”

The band’s as-yet-untitled fifth full-length studio album is scheduled for an early 2017 release.

Evocation’s line-up is as follows:

Thomas Josefsson (vocals)
Marko Palmen (guitar)
Simon Exner (guitar)
Gustaf Jorde (bass)

Fourth studio record Illusions Of Grandeur was released in September 2012 via Century Media Records.
