Local metal studs Green Death have recently announced that the band has signed to David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group. EMP A&R director Thom Hazaert was introduced to the band through Slipknot front man Corey Taylor after Taylor invited Green Death to play Knotfest earlier this year. EMP has already announced that they will be re-releasing Green Death’s first two self-released albums, “The Deathening” and “Manufacturing Evil.” Congratulations, guys.
