The band comments: "It’s always been of outmost importance for us to work with people that we can relate to, trust, and will understand our creative and professional vision. Season of Mist feels like home to us and we can’t wait to start what hopefully will be a long and rewarding relationship for both parties."

Furthermore, GAAHLS WYRD have announced a European co-headliner tour with enigmatic metal band TRIBULATION and UADA in 2019. The Norwegians add: “We have a lot of respect for our travel partners, TRIBULATION and UADA, and can’t wait to join forces for what we believe will be a thoroughly enjoyably and diverse package, that we are confident will hit home in the metal community. We’re also massively eager to present songs from our brand new album that will be released next year. 2019 can’t come soon enough."

Tue, Sep 18 2018: SARAH LONGFIELD

Upcoming release: "Disparity"

Release date: Fri, Nov 30 2018, US Fri, Nov 30 2018

American multi-instrumentalist SARAH LONGFIELD is now premiering the first track of her upcoming album 'Disparity'. The record is set for release on November 30th, 2018, via Season of Mist. Listen to the new song below.

The song "Cataclysm" is streaming via Guitar World here.

Sarah comments on the song: "This song is so fun for me to play. There’s a pretty big Animals As Leaders influence, which makes sense as I wrote it the day after seeing one of their shows in Providence, RI. It’s a combo of the way my style has developed over the last few years yet still pays homage to my heavier roots. Hope you enjoy!"

About the record, the guitarist says the following: "I've been fortunate in my musical endeavors to see lots of beautiful places and experience many incredible, but also occasionally strange and dark things. The contrast has been truly inspiring and this album is documentation of that. Thus, there are many different moods throughout the record. I'm really excited about getting to perform such a varied record live!"

Furthermore, SARAH LONGFIELD has unveiled the artwork of the upcoming album. See the cover and the track-list details below.



  1. Intro
  2. Embracing Solace
  3. Departure
  4. Cataclysm
  5. Sun
  6. Citrine
  7. Miro
  8. Stay Here
  9. The Fall

'Disparity' can be pre-ordered in the Season of Shop.

Latest release: "Great Escape"

Release date: Fri, Sep 14 2018, US Fri, Sep 14 2018

CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX are now streaming their entire new masterpiece 'Great Escape' via Prog Magazine (UK). Listen to the album at the link below.

Check out the full album via Prog Magazine.

Mastermind Justin Greaves comments: "Great Escape was born from a place of resignation to stressful and painful things, like holding my hands up and shouting “I don’t care anymore, I just want out of this” ... Which then opened the door to a lot of other topics which relate to this state of mind, and these topics are what fueled this album.

Whether it’s internal struggles, or things in the wide world that make us despair, or wanting to help the voiceless animals escape human tyranny, most people can relate to escapism in different forms.

'Great Escape' is not an album of singles to achieve maximum popularity, but then no CBP album is. Sonically it’s true CBP and I hope fans get that old familiar misery -vs- hope vibe. Stick on the headphones and turn it up! There’s some very cool stuff happening under the surface of the songs.
I’ll just leave it there along with this quote from Alan Watts which sums up a lot of what this album represents.

“As soon as we are born we are labeled; name, race, nationality, family, status… We are inserted into a story not of our making. As soon as we start walking and exploring the majestic world around us we are told ‘oh, but you must go to school now! You must finish school to go to high school. You must finish high school to go to college. You must master a degree so you can get a good job. You must work hard so you can be promoted. You must make a family. You must buy a house. You must… you must… you must…’ Until you retire. And then what?” "

CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX have previously revealed the artwork for 'Great Escape', which can be viewed together with the album details below.



  1. You Brought It Upon Yourselves
  2. To You I Give
  3. Uncivil War (pt I)
  4. Madman
  5. Times, They Are A’Raging
  6. Rain Black, Reign Heavy
  7. Slow Motion Breakdown
  8. Nebulas
  9. Las Diabolicas
  10. Great Escape (pt I)
  11. Great Escape (pt II)

‘Great Escape’ is now available in the Season of Mist shop.
