Roadrunner Records proudly announces the signing of Still Remains. Hailing from Grand Rapids, MI, Still Remains has rapidly established themselves as one of heavy music’s most startling young bands. A lucky handful of you may have seen them alongside the likes of As I Lay Dying, Zao and Haste The Day at some point during the year. What does it sound like, you ask? Heart-crushing howls turn to heartfelt melodies amidst a swirl of keyboards – guitars chug brutally and then harmonize like Iron Maiden on overdrive while songs like “I Can Revive Him With My Own Hands” feel like the last hours of a very bad day sped up in time-lapse. Still Remains came to Roadrunner through A&R man Mike Gitter (Killswitch Engage, Cradle of Filth). “I’ve never heard a band that smashes together Swedish metal, American metalcore and Saddle Creek-ish indie-rock all at once,” says Gitter. “Then they push it all emotionally and over the edge! Guaranteed, this is the beginning of something great for years to come.” Still Remains will be hitting the studio this Fall for their Roadrunner debut, slated for release in 2005. Until then, check our MUSIC section for an MP3 download of the track “I Can Revive Him With My Own Hands” from the band’s If Love Was Born To Die EP (available at a record store near you).
