On previous news, Season of Mist have proudly announced the signing of ABBATH. Having recently departed from IMMORTAL to form a new band under his own name, the iconic Norwegian black metal legend is currently working on his debut album for Season of Mist, which is expected to be ready in early 2016.

Regarding this signing Michael Berberian personally commented: “My first black metal concert ever was IMMORTAL, ROTTING CHRIST, and BLASPHEMY in Paris, 1993”, states the Season of Mist CEO. “Black metal was then, and still is, defining my musical taste. This concert was life changing and one of the events that eventually sparked the birth of Season of Mist. Fast-¬forward 22 years from that concert at this moment in time. ROTTING CHRIST have been with us for years, and now ABBATH joins us too! I’m presenting this signing with a pure adrenaline high and childlike amazement. On top of this, Abbath is one of a kind, a genuine character. This band has just the right chemistry, the ambition and the vision to excel.”
