Morbid Angel signs with Season Of Mist

Wednesday, November 18, 2009 2:24 PM PT

Official press release:

The whole Season of Mist staff is immensely proud to finally confirm the rumor and announce that the label has inked a worldwide deal (outside of Japan) with cult death metal band Morbid Angel.

Formed in 1984, Morbid Angel are one of the pioneering bands of death metal as well as the current masters of extreme music and to date easily the best selling artist in the genre. The band has had a glorious 20 plus year history and significant commercial success, selling well over a million and a half albums on their eight albums to date.

"I am truly looking forward to our new relationship with Season of Mist," frontman David Vincent comments. "Michael Berberian has a lot of artistic vision and is a real music fan. This has been a long process to get to this point and in my opinion, it was worth the wait!"

"I'm really stoked to be working now with SOM!", adds founding member Trey Azagthoth. "The French have always shown me they much more value art over Fabricated Flatlined Hype, and it's this artistic minded value that will open so many new doors for extreme music as a whole. Mind Makes Meaning, why not own the process?"

Season of Mist will release the Floridians' ninth album in 2010.

it's about fcking time they signed with someone. they've technically been an unsigned band for almost 3 years now. stoked for this...Impending Doom, however, is NOT stoked.

Impending Doom is using wikipedia to find out who Morbid Angel is as we speak.
