Extreme Management Group (EMG), home to bands like Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Rings Of Saturn, and more, has announced their partnership with Finnish thrash metallers, TakaLaiton.
TakaLaiton hails from the far north, in the cold winter regions of Finland. Garnering a powerful thrash-influenced attitude, TakaLaiton is best seen in their super-energetic live shows; always leaving fans with a sore neck and bruises from the moshpit. With a risk-taking thrash fueled demeanor, TakaLaiton superbly blends fast-paced energy, bone-crushing groove, with melodies that can only be inspired by the dark, depressing and frigid far-north. Not to mention the band’s lyrical onslaught, containing both Finnish and English languages.
The band has covered a lot of territory while on tour, bringing their rowdy stage presence to the Scandinavian regions, and the European and Asian continents.
TakaLaiton has a “break the rules, exceed all limits” approach, as their name suggests; deriving from a Finnish baseball term for “swing the ball over the borders”. With that fierce frame of mind, the band has recently won “Heavy Metal Heart 11” a National Music Contest in Finland; and is currently working on a full-length album that will be Produced by Teemu Aalto (Omnium Gatherum, Insomnium).
Now, having inked a worldwide deal with Extreme Management Group (EMG), the band says: “So far this is the biggest thing that has happened to us as a band. In signing this deal, we know all our sweating in the rehearsal room has not been wasted time. TakaLaiton is so excited to be working with Extreme Management Group!“
EMG said, “We are thrilled to be working with TakaLaiton. Expect big things to come from this partnership.”
