||Finnish melodic death metal band Mors Principium Est have inked a deal with AFM Records and plan to enter the studio this summer to record the follow-up to 2007's album Liberation = Termination, to be released at the end of the year.
Vocalist Ville Viljanen commented: "I am more than happy to announce, that MPE signed a deal with AFM Records for Europe & the US. We talked to some other labels too, but AFM seemed the right choice for us. We can't wait to get to the studio in the summer and release the new album at the end of 2012. And then we will see what happens, when the people of AFM starts to work their magic."
"We have been talking with a record label for Japan, Korea and Taiwan release, everything seems ok, but nothing has been signed yet. Also have been talking to a record label for Australia release, again everything seems ok, but nothing has been signed yet. So, as soon as the contracts have been signed, we will let you know."
AFM Records released this statement on the deal: "We're proud to announce the signing of one of Finland's finest melodic death metal bands: Mors Principium Est. With their first three albums they left a mark on today's metal scene and amazed fans and critics alike with their fast-paced and atmospheric mixture. With their new album they want to continue where they left off and even take their unique style to the next level."
