Prosthetic Records Announces Signing of Hong Kong-Based Guitarist JASON KUI. His new Album, Absence Of Words, will be available worldwide October 13.
“Jason is a session and touring guitarist who has worked with many well-known artists throughout Hong Kong and China. As a teenager, he was drawn to the playing of Eddie Van Halen, John Petrucci and Andy Timmons, who all greatly influenced his playing. Kui’s debut album, Absence of Words, features diverse sounds – modern metal, hard rock, funk and ballad – while integrating rock lead techniques and compelling melodies throughout.”
Jason himself also added:
“I’m so happy to share this with you guys. I’m signed to an American label, Prosthetic Records. They have such great artists like the mighty Marty Friedman and Scale the Summit. Prosthetic Records will release and distribute my debut album, 《Absence of Words》in America and Europe on October 13. Hope to see all my American friends on the road.”
Those unfamiliar with Prosthetic Records, you’re fucking crazy if you’ve never heard of Prosthetic Records and claim to listen to metal, that’s the label that released Lamb of God’s first two albums, Gojira, Venom Prison, Testament, Esoteric, Through The Eyes of The Dead, and so many more. The label has been alive and active AF since 1998.
For us in Hong Kong, the idea of something or someone from here being signed to a humongous US based metal label like Prosthetic Records is unheard of. Actually, it has never happened before. So it is very interesting, and a little puzzling, how this happened but we’re VERY excited for Jason! Hopefully there’ll be more American labels who might be interested in taking a chance on bands from out here in Asia.
