Israeli Heavy Metallers SWITCHBLADE have signed a worldwide management deal with Germany's Rock'n'Growl Management. This is a band that aims to attain the same sparkle and enthusiasm that made the 80s Metal scene so great.
Switchblade formed in 2005 and six years later, along with shifting Metal subgenres, several unofficial releases, a few gigs with various of groups within the Israeli Metal scene, plenty of line-up changes, and a few bruises, they have found purpose and direction.
After cementing their reputation in the finals of the local "Wacken Metal Battle" in 2012 the band began working on their debut album 'Heavy Weapons'.

Switchblade do not intend to reinvent the vintage steel, but to relive it and keep the old fires burning. 'Heavy Weapons' consists of nine tracks, a few from the band's past along with fresh material, and it may become one of the pillars of the old burning flame of Heavy Metal.
Iced Earth will performing for the first time in Israel on 22 February 2014 and Switchblade, along with their local peers, Prowlers, will support the American Heavy/Power Metal giants.
