Selfmadegod Records is proud to announce the signing of Terminate from Morton Grove, Illinois.
Taking influences from death metal stalwarts Bolt Thrower and Autopsy, Terminate have a simple aim: to play death metal the way it was meant to be played. The band maintains a melodic sensibility akin to Swedish greats Dismember and Entombed, helping them to define their unique sound.
Thanks to their self-released Thirst for the Obscene EP in 2011, Polish label Selfmadegod took notice of the act and immediately inked a deal with them to release their debut full-length in early 2013; which the members are currently in the process of finalizing. More details will be announced soon.
Terminate was formed in late 2009 by guitarist/vocalist John Porada and drummer Jim Smith. After releasing their Thirst for the Obscene demo, the lineup was completed with Tom Cardella on guitar and Alfred Mulle on bass. Consisting of veterans of the Chicago metal scene, as well as their New York counterparts, the band has quickly made a name for itself: catching the attention of not only their home city of Chicago, but also a core of underground fans across the world.
