Chicago Death Metal band WARFORGED has official signed with the best independent record label right now, the ever so hot Artisan Era. The announcing comes as as great surprise, but not a surprise at the same time. The Warforged guys have been making a name for themselves playing shows and establishing their band for years now. I only heard of them going into last year, and was blown away at their great melodies and quality musicianship that make them a unique force in death metal.
Here is the official press release through The Artisan Era:
Chicago, Illinois-based death metal act Warforged is proud to officially announce their signing to extreme metal label The Artisan Era. The group will be working with the label to release their first full-length album in the spring of 2019. After garnering widespread acclaim with the release of their 2014 EP, Essence Of The Land, the group has worked hard the last few years to craft a fitting follow up to that highly praised effort.
The Artisan Era comments on the signing, “Warforged is a band that puts every ounce of thought and passion into every aspect of what they do. They are pushing lots of artistic boundaries in the most positive ways with their new material and it’s phenomenal. We are proud to have them on our team and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for the band.”

Warforged band statement on signing to The Artisan Era
“We are very happy to announce that Warforged will be working with The Artisan Era for the release of our debut full-length record: “I: Voice.” The 9 track, 73-minute concept album continues seamlessly out of our 2014 release, “Essence Of The Land,” and serves as part 1 of an ongoing concept centered around interwoven dreams and memory. The music is an elaboration on the vibes and textures from EOTL – pushing for a far wider dynamic and emotional range. Malcolm & Mike are doing great work with TAE and we really look forward to working with them as well as seeing y’all out on the road next year!”
