Metal Blade Records Signs Category 7

CATEGORY 7, the new heavy metal supergroup featuring vocalist John Bush (Armored Saint, Anthrax), guitarists Phil Demmel (Machine Head) and Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), bassist Jack Gibson (Exodus), and drummer Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall, Overkill), has reached a deal with Metal Blade Records.

Vocalist Bush says, “Mike Orlando’s and Phil Demmel’s awesome riffs made writing lyrics over the music a piece of cake. The rhythm tandem of Bittner and Gibson rounded out the sound and the connection felt like it was put together in the stars. Obviously, everyone being a veteran of the metal scene made it that much easier.

Metal Blade Records’ founder Brian Slagel comments on the signing, “Happy to welcome CATEGORY 7 into the Metal Blade family. Of course, some of them are already in! Seriously love working with this crew and it’s great stuff!

The details of their debut album have yet to be revealed, but mark your calendars for the premiere of the records first single on May 2nd!
