Bonded, the band featuring Bernd “Bernemann” Kost (ex-Sodom), Markus “Makka” Freiwald (ex-Sodom), Ingo Bajonczak (Assassin), Chris Tsitsis (ex-Suicidal Angels), and Marc Hauschild, have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. With this news, the group also confirmed that they are currently finishing up their debut album.
Bernemann said the following:
“Bonded have proudly signed their contract and are now looking forward to the future cooperation with Century Media Records. As a local band from Dortmund, this union with the traditional Dortmund music label means a lot to us and we are excited to be a part of the Century family. We are familiar with CMR since their very beginnings in 1988 and we are very happy to have found a strong partner for the launch of Bonded in them”.
“A long and busy period lies behind us, as we are very proud and pleased to announce that Bonded has signed to Century Media Records. We have invested a lot of time, work and passion in the band and will now continue the journey together with a strong and heavy partner. We are looking forward to working with CMR and hope to stay Bonded for a long time.”
Century Media Records director Philipp Schulte also commented:
“We are very happy to announce the signing of Bonded. Welcome to Century Media! And welcome back, Makka and Bernemann! It was about time. The first recordings that Bonded played to us some months ago were already of very high quality. Now the debut album is in the making, and what I have heard speaks a very clear language: Bonded play straight-forward metal with a high level of musicality. Teutonic thrash done right. You better watch out!”
