Long-running Fayetteville death metal heroes Vore recently announced they'd signed a deal with the German label AFM Records, which is also home to acts such as Gwar, Danzig, Tankard, Ross the Boss, Ministry, Fear Factory and many more.
Vore's latest, the crushing "Gravehammer," will be re-released on CD and vinyl. This couldn't have happened to a nicer group of dudes, and it's good evidence that years of hard work pay off.
So with an overseas record deal, might there be any European tours in the offing? "We're hoping that that will be a result of all this," said Vore bassist Jeremy Partin. "The record company said they're not in the touring business, but they can put us in touch with the right people."
Partin said the record label told Vore that their style of death metal is very popular on the continent, particularly in Germany. An added bonus? "They agreed to pay us in wienerschnitzel," Partin joked.
