Black metal powerhouse INQUISITION just inked a deal with Season of Mist! The Americans’ sixth album will be released on the Underground Activists division.
Frontman Dagon issued the following statement: “For many years INQUISITION has loyally walked upon the path of Black Metal deeply devoted to its spirituality and magic while growing and maturing our craft, yet always preserving the essence that ignited us since our beginning, always keeping us rooted in the elements that make us what we are now and who we were in the past. Time is relativity and this relativity is affected by choice and selection during our time of existence as INQUISITION. Therefore our careful choice of a new label as a means to take us further into our journey, and your journey, extending this path we walk upon into deeper dimensions and allowing us to heighten our potential will be placed in the hands of Season of Mist. At this time we are heavily devoted to the composition and arrangement of our next opus. We know what we want, we know what you expect and we look forward to 2012 being the year of creation and production of this upcoming ritual. With pride we announce this new relationship and with pride we will continue to deliver INQUISITION at its finest… Hail the cult.”
Season of Mist is proud to announce the fresh addition of French act BLACKLODGE to the Underground Activists roster. The industrial black metallers’ fourth album is already in the can and should hit the stores later this year.
The band comments: “BLACKLODGE uncovers with fervour a new conspiracy with Season of Mist to release their forthcoming album in 2012. The band is proud to join the label’s quality squadron in order to weave a stronger web worldwide and push the venom of Industrial Black Metal to a higher level of toxicity.”
Swedish modern metallers ENGEL’s third album is entitled “Blood of Saints” and has been scheduled for a May 18th release. The band recently shot a video for new song “Question Your Place”, a number from “Blood of Saints”. You can watch a short trailer on Season of Mist’s YouTube channel.
