Progressive metal band ONI have signed with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. The label will releasing the group’s highly-anticipated opus, Ironshore, on Black Friday, November 25, 2016. Pre-orders will be available in early October.
Blacklight Media was launched this past February by Chris Santos, executive chef and managing partner of the New York City restaurants VANDAL, The Stanton Social and Beauty & Essex, in partnership with Metal Blade Records CEO/founder Brian Slagel. Santos states:
“One of the things that I think will make Blacklight Media a label to watch for years to come is the diversity of our roster. ONI is our first crushingly heavy signing that matches their heaviness with incredible progressive precision and classically brutal breakdowns. I’m very excited to have them as part of the Blacklight Media family!”
Vocalist Jake Oni adds:
“We are excited to announce our signing with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. It is an honor to be on the same roster as so many amazing bands. With the support of this legendary label at our side, the world is ours!”
The new effort features their new single “Eternal Recurrence”, which was released this summer. Watch the clip for the track below.
