Dragged Into Sunlight

Prosthetic Records has partnered with the UK’s DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT for a worldwide recording contract. This marks the first signing of a UK act for the label, which re-released the album, “Hatred For Mankind,” in  April, 2010. The album, recorded by Tom Dring and Billy Anderson (EYEHATEGOD, Neurosis, Weedeater), was originally released in 2009 by Mordgrimm Records (Anaal Nathrakh, Covenant). The mysterious band, whose sound can be described as a mixture of black, death and doom metal, has shared the stage with acts such as Vader, Grief, Trap Them, Gama Bomb and Lazarus Blackstar.

The band, who appear masked in photos, play in near total darkness and smoke and do not publicize their individual names, commented about today’s heavy music scene: “A few blastbeats, a scrawled logo and people accept it, regardless of the reality. DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT is a concept, we’ve taken the time to come up with our own understanding and presentation of what we want to see associated with extreme metal in 2009 and beyond.”

Terrorizer Magazine chronicled DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT as “crushing, sweeping and just plain riffing,” praising their “crusty blackened doom” and “delicious black majesty.” Meanwhile, Metal Hammer distinguished their sound as “a torrent of seething riffs so caustically expansive, they feel as though they’re about the burst out of your skin. It’s also the sheer, pre-meditated malice that drives them on a systematic rite of destruction, whose domineering, scorched-Earth tactics leave no synapse or nerve-ending unscathed.”

The band made its first trek to North America in the spring of 2010 in support of the re-release and hasn’t stopped since. Check out a culling of the gruesome beast on Myspace or Facebook
