ALTERBEAST Signs Deal With Unique Leader RecordsTuesday, 17th September 2013
Unique Leader Records have announced the signing of ALTERBEAST, a technical death metal band hailing from Sacramento California. The band’s debut album, Immortal, will be released in early 2014.
Formed in 2011 under the working name GARY BUSEY AMBER ALERT (GBAA), Alterbeast combines influences from favorites such as THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, NECROPHAGIST and SPAWN OF POSSESSION, along with numerous other classic death metal acts like DISSECTION and MORBID ANGEL. After a year of dedicated writing, Alterbeast released a demo in the winter of 2012 and played shows alongside DEICIDE, DYING FETUS, TESTAMENT, EXHUMED, and many others.
One year after releasing their demo, ALTERBEAST entered Augmented Audio at Sound Temple Studios to record their debut album, Immortal, with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams engineering the record. After
recording at Sound Temple, the band acquired Gabe Seeber (THE KENNEDY VEIL) for drum duties. Deciding that it was a must to have Gabe’s talents on this record, ALTERBEAST booked days at Castle Ultimate with engineer Zack Ohren to record drums and mix and master.
