Metal Blade Records Signs System Divide
November 22, 2009
Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of extreme modern metal act System Divide, featuring Sven De Caluwe (Aborted) and Miri Milman (ex-Distorted) on vocals, Cole Martinez (ex-Years Of Fire, Antenora) and Joseph Spiller (ex-The Binary Code) on guitars, Andrew Lenthe (Antenora) on bass, and Mike Heller (Malignancy) on drums. System Divide has already completed a video for the song "The Apex Doctrine" off the bands current EP ('The Collapse'), which will also be on the band's full-length Metal Blade debut. Check out a trailer for the new video below and be sure to head over to System Divide's Myspace page to listen to the tracks "The Apex Doctrine" and "(n)Ether." Stay tuned for more information including when and where the video for "The Apex Doctrine" will premiere, track listing and release date of the band's debut full-length album, 'The Conscious Sedation', and tour dates.

Vocalist Sven De Caluwe comments: "We couldn't be more thrilled to be part of the
Metal Blade
roster, a label that has been pushing the boundaries of extreme music and putting lots of great new acts in the spot light. We know System Divide is in the hands of a competent team of driven music FANS in the first place who believe in what we do, and we're going to give them their money's worth!!

We are completing the songwriting for our first album 'The Conscious Sedation' and are about to enter the studio to start tracking by the end of the month, for those who checked out our EP, get ready for some surprises and more extreme modern metal madness! Rock 'n roll!!"

"Heavy, Brutal, Extreme, Melodic In Your Face Metal. These ingredients result in a unique visual and audio assault that numbs the senses. Vocalists Sven De Caluwe (Aborted) and Miri Milman (ex-Distorted), deliver a one-two punch unseen in Metal. We are very proud to add them to the Metal Blade Records family," comments Michael Faley of Metal Blade Records.

About the band:
Founded in the summer of 2008, System Divide set out to revolutionize the conventions of the over-saturated melodic death metal genre, proving that extreme metal can have more depth than blast beats, while female vocals do not have to conform to the precepts of the "Goth" genre. In mixing many styles, 'The Collapse', the band's debut EP, breaks all the rules of extreme metal and is a landmark release for the new band.

As opposed to interjecting simple, predictable clean choruses into contrived song structures, System Divide unites serene female vocals and extreme vocals driven by lyrical themes that confront and seek to break everyday themes of disillusionment, societal materialism, and individual apathy. Musically, the band delivers myriad styles of riffing and grooves, while augmenting the entrancing soundscapes with hard-hitting drums and intricate bass lines. These elements together define the unique, spell binding, hypnotic sound of System Divide.

In order to achieve this complex calculus of sounds on 'The Collapse', Cole Martinez handled tracking duties at Conquistador Recordings. Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Jacob Hansen (Aborted, HateSphere, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios in Denmark in April and May 2009. Artwork for 'The Collapse' was completed by Colin Marks (Strapping Young Lad, Aborted, Nevermore). The result is a sonic and visual masterpiece that metal has eagerly been waiting for.

The band recruited Joseph Spiller (ex-The Binary Code) as a second guitarist shortly after the release of 'The Collapse' and continued writing for its first full length, 'The Conscious Sedation', due out early 2010. Following the philosophy of don't break up a winning team, the band once again will record with producer/engineer Cole Martinez and mix with Jacob Hansen in Denmark. A video has been shot for "The Apex Doctrine" by Kevin Custer (Hatebreed, Testament, Dope, Dying Fetus, Suffocation) and will hitting airways soon.
