Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of acclaimed drummer George Kollias. The Greek drum progeny will release a new solo album, titled 'Invictus' via Season of Mist on May 19th in North America. A teaser for 'Invictus' can be seen here:

George Kollias is a world class drummer of the legendary death metal band Nile. The venerable Kollias teaches at LAB Music Education and the Modern Music School in Athens, Greece and is also known from his solo clinic tours which have taken him across the globe. His first instructional drum DVD, 'Intense Metal Drumming', has soared past one million views online and made him one of the most prominent drumming names in the landscape of heavy music.

During touring breaks from Nile in early 2014, Kollias recorded 'Invictus'. The fifteen track album features Kollias' work across all instruments, as well as guest spots from some of the best musicians in heavy metal. More information about the new album, including the track list and musicians involved will be announced in the weeks to come.

Regarding the signing, George Kollias comments: "I am extremely happy to be a part of the Season of Mist family and so excited for the release of my first album! I strongly feel this is going to be a very successful and productive cooperation between me and this label with a common goal: to deliver the best music we can to all of you out there! I would like to thank everyone at Season of Mist for all their support and for helping me with the release of my first album. It means a lot to me and I will make sure to work even harder for more great music for all of you!"
