Death Penalty, the new band formed by Cathedral guitarist Garry "Gaz" Jennings, featuring Belgian female vocalist Michelle Nocon (ex-Serpentcult) and guests, has inked a deal with Rise Above Records.

He has been working on songs for his new project for some time and had the idea of a strong female vocalist, which led him to Michelle and the pair have been working together since the summer. Death Penalty are also confirmed for an exclusive debut appearance at Rise Above Records 25th anniversary shows.
