Napalm Records announce the signing of Swedish THE ORDER OF ISRAFEL to their roster:
When Tom Sutton left the doom band Church of Misery, it was to make his long-established grand vision of an epic doom band come true. To accomplish this, he moved to Sweden and hooked his strings together with Patrik Andersson Winberg ( ex Doomdogs ), Hans Lilja as Lotus (which for a period had Brian Robertson, ex Thin Lizzy as guitarist) and Staffan Bjorck from the band Wildebeest. Together with his and the band’s Doom and Heavy Metal influences, folk music, twinguitars and feel of old horror movies to create dark divine music, they became THE ORDER OF ISRAFEL. The band has now signed a record deal with Spinning Goblin / Napalm Records, and commented the signing as follows:
“The Order Of Israfel are thrilled to announce that we have signed to Napalm Records, and will be releasing our first album, ‘Wisdom’, in the Autumn, 2014. We’re extremely proud of the record, and know that Napalm will be the perfect home for it. We are also very excited to be sharing a label with the extremely legendary Candlemass, who have been one of the biggest influences on the sound of the band from the beginning. Cheers!”

London’s hottest stoner outfit STEAK are preparing to hit the California desert to record their first full-length, due out this autumn on Napalm Records. Turn on the generators…!
STEAK’s riffmaker in chief Reece: “With the help from some desert rock legends, this album is going to be bigger and more badass than anything we have done before. We just need to make it out of Vegas alive! Thanks to Napalm Records, we have been able to take the time to create some of the best tracks to date and let them evolve naturally. Having two weeks in the studio will be a total contrast to the short time we had to record the first EPs, and will hopefully show through on the end product.“
