Formed in 2004, REALITY GREY are one of the most promising modern death metal bands from Italy . They released the acclaimed debut album ‘Darkest Days Are Yet To Come’ in 2006 and the EP ‘Day Zero’ in 2008 on the US label Razar Ice Records and, since then, they have shared the stage with some of the most important international death metal acts (Deicide, Hatesphere and Necrodeath to name a few), gaining respect and appreciation along the way.
In January 2014 REALITY GREY have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their long waited sophomore album, ‘Define Redemption’, 9 brand new songs which are going to redefine the band’s sound: fast, brutal, modern and “moshy’, this new record contains some of the heaviest material the band has ever composed and which will fit perfectly their infamous live show.

SOUL OF STEEL have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their new album, following the critically acclaimed debut ‘Destiny’ (2010) and a solid live activity in their native country of Italy.
Following the path created by fellow Italian bands such as Labyrinth and Vision Divine, Soul Of Steel bring to the table a compelling mix of Melodic Power Metal, Progressive Rock and majestic Symphonic passages. ‘Journey To Infinity’ was produced by Olaf Thorsen (Labyrinth, Vision Divine), mixed and mastered by Simone Mularoni (DGM) and features very special guest appearances by Roberto Tiranti (lead singer of Labyrinth) on the stunning acoustic version of the song ‘Last Desire’ and Alessio Lucatti (keyboardist of Vision Divine) on the song ‘Eternal Life’.
The album evolves around a dreamlike journey of a man trying to escape his demons, which was brilliantly portrayed on the cover artwork by Nerve Design (Threshold, Eldritch, Vision Divine). ‘Journey To Infinity’ will be available starting from April 23rd, 2013.

Scarlet Records announces that STRAIGHT ON TARGET have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their debut album ‘Pharmakos’.
The band debuted in 2011 with the self-produced EP ‘Mediocritas’, a powerful, straightforward Deathcore attack which was able to attract very positive reactions from fans and critics alike, but they are now ready to unleash all their fury with a furious full length release. ‘Pharmakos’ combines ferocious vocals, super-heavy riffs, bonecrushing blastbeats and killer breakdowns in the vein of bands such as Aborted, The Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, Impending Doom and Molotov Solution among others, still keeping the focus on strong songwriting and meaningful lyrics. Straight On Target will tour extensively to promote the album.
A video preview of the song ‘Demonized’ is available on the band’s official Youtube channel:
‘Pharmakos’ will be available starting from January 14th, 2013. Follow www.bakerteamrecords.com and http://www.facebook.com/StraightOnTarget for all the updates.
BAKERTEAM Records has issued as follows:
MALNÁTT is an Italian black metal band formed in Bologna , Italy in 1999. They are the first and only extreme metal band who have introduced an accordion in the line up and, and before many others, female screaming vocals, trumpets and lyrics in Bolognese dialect. People were astonished by the extreme contrast between their humorous approach and obscure lyrics, focused on decadent poetry, death and nihilism. The band was also chosen to play themselves on a very successful episode of the popular Italian TV show ‘L’ispettore Coliandro’, a crime fiction broadcasted on the national TV networks.
‘Principia Discordia’ was recorded and mixed at Domination Studios in San Marino , with the artistic supervision of renowned musician Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios). ‘Principia Discordia’ moves away from the folk approach of the early albums to focus on much more extreme and experimental sounds. The lyrics take their inspiration both from the great Italian poets and the band’s mastermind Porz himself, who enjoys writing hermetic songs struck between suicide and irony. ‘Principia Discordia’ will be released December 3rd, 2012 on Bakerteam Records.

SCARLET has issued the following:
Scarlet Records has created and launched its own partner label, Bakerteam Records, which aims in discovering and offering support to the best talents of the hard rock & heavy metal international scene. The new label will benefit from all the distribution channels and promotional tools that have made Scarlet one of the most established labels out there, focusing primarily on up and coming sensations that aspire worldwide exposure.
The first two Bakerteam releases will be debut albums from Israeli band Red Rose (25 October 2011) and Italian band The Ritual (14 November 2011).
Red Rose blends Melodic Hard Rock, Classic Heavy Metal and Pomp Rock keyboards in an elegant and refined shape in the vein of Royal Hunt. Recorded at Jailhouse Studios with renowned Danish producer Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Jorn), ‘Live The Life You’ve Imagined’ is a thrilling and memorable record from the first to the very last song.
Always in perfect balance between aggression and melody, The Ritual is a Power/Thrash Metal monster “contaminated” by modern Metal gods such as Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine. ‘Beyond The Fragile Horizon’, graced with a beautiful cover artwork by Nerve Design (Threshold, Nile, Legion Of The Damned, Vision Divine), is the Heavy Metal revelation of the year thanks to the contagious vehemence of its ten songs produced and mixed by Federico Pennazzato (Sadist, Secret Sphere) and mastered by Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios).
