Independent metal label Blind Prophecy Records has sealed distribution deals in North America (Caroline through Candlelight Records), Europe (European affiliates through Plastic Head) and Japan (Asian Alliance). Kicking off with the first two releases this October (Japan) and November (North America, Europe) from SCARPOINT and PAIN PRINCIPLE, Blind Prophecy Records will serve up the "sickest" new metal albums in these regions, according to a press release.

Established in 2007 out of Ft Myers, Florida, Blind Prophecy Records is run by the husband-and-wife team of James and Shelley McComas, who have searched far and wide for standout aggressive acts to sign to the label. After scouring the scene, Blind Prophecy quickly "struck gold," adding genuine metal gems from urban U.S. (YEARS OF FIRE, Cleveland, OH) to Northern Europe (SCARPOINT, Stockholm, Sweden).

YEARS OF FIRE, co-founded by guitarst Jason Hager of CHIMAIRA fame, also features the former bassist of RINGWORM. Members of PAIN PRINCIPLE ran a lengthy jaunt with ANDREW WK. In addition, Blind Prophecy bands have teamed up with top-of-the-line producers. Swedish act SCARPOINT crafted its upcoming album alongside Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES) while PAIN PRINCIPLE recorded with Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, GOATWHORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE) and END OF THE ROPE is slated to hit the studio with Jim Morris (ICED EARTH, DEATH). Blind Prophecy's newest addition, EKOTREN, teamed up with Paul Trust (DIECAST, ENDO) for their 2007 EP, "Destroying the American Dream", and will join Trust again for their upcoming full-length debut.

Upcoming releases from Blind Prophecy Records:

* SCARPOINT"The Silence We Deserve"
October 10, 2007 (Japan)
November 6, 2007 (Europe and North America)

* PAIN PRINCIPLE - "Waiting for the Flies"
