U.S. death/thrash stalwarts Master signed on with Transcending Obscurity Records for the release of the new album "Vindictive Miscreant."
Master is one of the earliest proponents of death metal and is a veritable legend in the line, having been around for over three decades and released more than a dozen records. Master's new album "Vindictive Miscreant" will not only please the old fans, but will also turn many new listeners into one. It’s described as the band's "best album in years." Transcending Obscurity Records label owner Kunal Choksi says: “It’s truly a dream come true to work with a legendary band in Master. Paul Speckmann proved to be a man of rare integrity and signed the contract within two hours of bringing up the topic. Needless to say, I will be doing my utmost best not to let him down and do greater things for his band, now and in the future. This is a very fortuitous signing for the label and I couldn’t be happier. Hard work does pay off, it seems, when there was little respite. Thanks to Rogga Johansson of Paganizer for highly recommending my label to the band. Here’s hoping for a strong partnership with the legends Master.” Master’s founder Paul Speckmann comments, “Of course it’s an honor and a privilege in these days to sign to a reputable label which comes highly recommended by many excellent musicians! The future of Master carries on and we will fight until the end!”
