Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire Sign to Prosthetic

PROSTHETIC RECORDS has signed Denver, Colorado's CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE. The band formed in 2006 and released an EP ("Harmonies From Bleeding Mouths") that year, and released their first full-length, "Omega Drunk On The Blood Of Alpha" in 2008 on Debello Recordings. They're currently recording their PROSTHETIC debut. Their sound has been referred to as "funeral grind," as it's "too slow for grindcore, too fast for doom," and have been compared to the likes of Brutal Truth, Pig Destroyer, Discordance Axis, EyeHateGod and Napalm Death.

Vocalist Ethan McCarthy commented on the signing and new album: "Our new CD is being recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt) and it is our most dynamic, bleakest, and dirtiest material to date. We can't wait to go out and tour on this release, and we are proud to be a part of the PROSTHETIC roster."

CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE has toured tirelessly over the past several years throughout North America, and is currently planning a summer tour with Oregon's BURIALS. The band will be appearing at PROSTHETIC's South By Southwest showcase this Wednesday, March 16 at the Mohawk in Austin along with label-mates THE FUNERAL PYRE, BOOK OF BLACK EARTH, WITHERED, LANDMINE MARATHON and SCALE THE SUMMIT. The new album is slated for a late spring/early summer release.
