Slomatics Sign to Black Bow Records; New Album Due in 2016; Reissues Announced


There’s good news and then there’s good news. And then, actually, there’s more good news. Belfast tonal architects — tonechitects, if you need the portmanteau — have signed to Jon Davis from Conan‘s Black Bow Records. Makes a ton of sense. Almost too much sense. Davis has sung the band’s praises for years to anyone who will listen, and anyone who’s heard Slomatics and heard Conan can tell you Slomatics were a big influence.

So that’s good news. Then there’s word that Slomatics‘ first two albums, 2005’s Flooding the Weir and 2007’s Kalceanna are being reissued digitally this month. And the really big good news? Slomatics will have a new full-length out in the Spring that will be their fifth record, also on Black Bow. It’s your basic “label signing, old stuff, new stuff” three-pronged approach. Truth be told, though, if you don’t know Slomatics and you’re still reading this, you’ll probably feel better for familiarizing.

Davis announced the signing as follows:


Those who know me will know how much of a massive fan I am of the band Slomatics. Back in 2005 I got a copy of Flooding The Weir on cd after being introduced to them by David Andrew Main at D*A*M. They have consistently released amazing and brutal HEAVY music and I’ve been into them ever since.

Now I can call them all good friends, and to cap it all off I am releasing their new album (due out next year) on my label Black Bow Records. Recording will commence in December 2015 and it is due for release in Spring 2016.

Before that I have lined up a digital release of their first two albums namely FLOODING THE WEIR and KALCEANNA. Both of these will be available through all reputable digital outlets from 20th November 2015.
