Murmur To Release Self-Titled Album

Earlier this year, Season of Mist announced the signing of American experimental black metal band Murmur.

The Chicago based quartet’s second album will be a self-titled release and has been scheduled for January 17th (January 21st in North America), 2014. Season of Mist also comments:

"Murmur started off in 2007 and immediately received underground recognition. With the release of their fierce and utterly disturbing debut album in 2010, more accolades followed before the band embarked on an even stranger but no less frightening musical journey on a split EP with Nachtmystium the next year, which earned them international acclaim."

About joining Season of Mist Underground Activists, the band had this to say: “We are extremely excited to be working with Season of Mist, and to have the opportunity to reach a wider audience. Murmur started as a depressive black metal project with the debut ‘Mainlining the Lugubrious’, but after a pretty significant line-up change as well as a strong desire to satisfy my eclectic musical tastes, Murmur has mutated into a fusion of black metal with progressive rock, zeuhl, and 1970's style jazz fusion.

"We continue to grow and mutate our sound with every new piece. For a long time I thought we were trying to find our niche with all the experimentation, but it seems to me that our niche is not having one at all.”

Murmur Signs With Season Of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Murmur, issuing the following statement:

"The American experimental black metal band has just been added to the Underground Activists division. The Chicago based quartet started off in 2007 and immediately received underground recognition. With the release of their fierce and utterly disturbing debut album in 2010, more accolades followed before the band embarked on an even stranger but no less frightening musical journey on a split EP with Nachtmystium the next year, which earned them international acclaim."

“We are extremely excited to be working with Season of Mist, and to have the opportunity to reach a wider audience,” guitarist Matthias Vogels comments. “Murmur started as a depressive black metal project with the debut ‘Mainlining the Lugubrious’, but after a pretty significant line-up change as well as a strong desire to satisfy my eclectic musical tastes, Murmur has mutated into a fusion of black metal with progressive rock, zeuhl, and 1970's style jazz fusion."

He goes on to say, "We continue to grow and mutate our sound with every new piece. For a long time I thought we were trying to find our niche with all the experimentation, but it seems to me that our niche is not having one at all. Murmur's future goals are to continue writing and release another full-length within the next 1-2 years. Another major goal is to embark on US and European tours." More...
