AUÐN signs to Season of Mist


Audn Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of the Icelandic black metal band AUÐN. The metal luminaries will release their sophomore album on the label next year worldwide.

Regarding their signing, AUÐN comment: "We are thrilled to announce that our upcoming full-length will be released through Season of Mist. We are honored to have signed with a label that we hold in such high esteem. To ink a deal with a label that not only hosts some of our favorite acts, but also bands that have been a huge inspiration for us, is amazing. This is only the beginning though and we are looking forward with much anticipation. And last but not least we would like to take the opportunity to thank you all! Without your continued support none of this would be happening."

"It is also bleakly grim. At times, it is blasting and brutal, yet perfectly balanced and never straying a solitary note away from the mesmerizing ethereal soundscape projected throughout" - The Grapevine (Iceland)

Hailing from the village of Hveragerði in the southern end of Iceland, AUÐN were founded in 2010, and quickly became regarded as one of the most talented bands from the burgeoning black metal scene in their home country. Unlike the majority of their brethren, AUÐN shed the jarring and caustic approaches to black metal, in favor of haunting melodies and bitter atmospheres.

Since their inception, AUÐN have already created waves in their local Icelandic scene with compelling live performances, one of these which resulted in the band winning their country's "Wacken Metal Battle" contest.  Following their acclaimed Wacken performance, AUÐN have already aimed their sights towards larger audiences over the year to come. The band have recently announced new performances as part of Iceland Airwaves, BlastFest (NO), Einstaflug, and more. A full list of confirmed live dates can be found below.
