French modern metal act Klone recently joined the Season of Mist fold. Klone have a great following in France and are considered as an artier and more subtle form of the New Wave of French heavy metal initiated by Gojira, whose singer Joe appears as special guest on the album.
The band comments: "We are happy and really motivated about working with Season of Mist because we feel it's the best label to develop Klone in France and abroad. We saw how they worked with bands like Mayhem, Dagoba, The Old Dead Tree and we can't wait for the album to be released! We're quite impatient, as we waited for this moment for a long time now. We've been devoting ourselves to music for a while, and this is only the beginning... We aim to tour as much as possible, and Season of Mist can give us that opportunity. No doubt the release of the album will spread the word about us everywhere, which is really important because we've been working very hard to achieve that. The audience will soon be aware of it! You'll never stop hearing about Klone!"
The group's new album, "All Seeing Eye," is slated for a February 26, 2008 release (Feb. 18th in Europe). In the meantime, you can check them out here.
