NUCLEAR Inks Deal With Candlelight Records

Thursday, 26th June 2014

Santiago, Chile thrashers NUCLEAR have signed a worldwide deal with Candlelight Records.

Formed in 2003, NUCLEAR’s musical career started under the name Escoria in 1995, but it wasn’t until 1997 when the first recording was released. After disbanding in 2001, Escoria’s name turned to NUCLEAR and the original members Puente, Haussmann and Sudy found a steady lineup which has kept up to date.

Heavily influenced in ‘80s thrash and old school death metal, NUCLEAR has released four studio albums and toured in several countries, sharing the stage with acts such as: Testament, Forbidden, Voivod, Grave, Hirax, 1349, Joey Belladonna, Destruction, Brujeria, Hate Eternal, Absu, and At The Gates.

NUCLEAR’s best-selling album, Jehovirus (2010), was mastered in The UK by engineer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, Evile). NUCLEAR’s EP Apatrida was released in 2012 via Sick Bangers and distributed in Europe through Code7 / PHD.

In 2013, NUCLEAR released Sick Mosh – a live DVD and Inner Hate, a 7” split vinyl. The band is currently working on their fifth studio record to be released in 2014.
