2016 is the year Transcending Obscurity (main label) shifts its focus on signing more prominent bands from around the world. The budget remains a constraint, especially with the currency rate difference, but determination and hard work shall hopefully prevail.
With that said, Transcending Obscurity is proud to work with Rogga Johansson and his main band Paganizer, playing some of the most pulverizing and time-tested Swedish death metal music possible. Rogga Johansson is also responsible for other well-known acts like Putrevore, Megascavenger, Johansson & Speckmann, Down Among the Dead Men, Echelon, Necrogod, and others. Watch out for the upcoming release titled ‘On the Outskirts of Hades’ to be released in early 2016.
Transcending Obscurity label head Kunal Choksi states, “I’m a huge fan of Rogga Johansson and his impossibly solid death metal music, and Paganizer happens to be his main band. Having most of the extensive Paganizer discography in my personal collection, it’s with great honour that I hereby announce the release of the band’s next output titled ‘On the Outskirts of Hades’ on the main Transcending Obscurity label.”
In Rogga Johansson’s own words, “We are very excited to release a minicd with Kunal and Transcending Obscurity early in 2016. There will be four new songs which are some of the coolest stuff we’ve done in a long time, and as special bonus there will also be a full gig on the CD too, recorded last year in Stockholm, Sweden. So be prepared for 2016, to be ripped apart and devoured ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF HADES!”
Paganizer will be a part of the Transcending Obscurity Label Sampler – ‘Volume 1’ scheduled for release on Christmas this year.
