Zhrine Signs With Season Of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Zhrine: the Icelandic bringers of darkness will release their debut full-length in the first half of 2016. Regarding their signing, Zhrine comments:

"We are extremely pleased to have the honour of being welcomed into the fold of Season of Mist. They represent the same artistic values that we strive for, and we are very happy that our long and arduous journey of musical progression and development has finally won us a home at the very label we had set our sights on. Furthermore we like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Michael Berberian and all of the Season of Mist staff worldwide for their warm welcome, and for affording us with this unprecedented opportunity for future professional and artistic growth."

Zhrine rose from the fertile extreme metal breeding grounds of Kópavogur, Iceland in 2008, and soon began turning heads and snapping necks in the domestic scene with a brutal death metal style.

Through years of aural refinement of these more brutal tendencies into a crushing, yet ethereal, soundscape of oppressive blackened death, Zhrine soon outgrew the earlier moniker of Gone Postal. With theiforthcoming debut album on Season of Mist, Zhrine aims to introduce previously unheard elements of churning, visceral, atmospheres into the extreme metal palette, and cordially invite you, the listener, to join on this road less traveled.
