Season of Mist has announced the signing of the progressive doom-metal legends, CONFESSOR. Emerging from over a decade of hibernation, the band has returned to form, hungrier and more focused than ever.
Once dubbed "The world's most obstinately technical metal band," CONFESSOR will again continue to make the words "heavy" synonymous with "progressive" and "provocative" in an effort to challenge and inspire their listeners.
As a precursor to the band's upcoming long player, "Unraveled", due out in early autumn, Season of Mist will release the limited edition CD-single, "Sour Times". Scheduled for a June release, this soon-to-be collector's item will mainly be made available for purchase to the die-hard fans. The release will contain two new songs: "Sour Times" and "Hibernation", a radio edit of the title track plus a live video! Also included on the limited CD with be PC Interactive gems such as band photos, a screen saver and more. Listen to a sample of "Sour Times" here.
CONFESSOR, who are currently being represented by CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's former management company, split up in the early '90s after releasing one full-length album (1991's "Condemned") and EP (1992's "Confessor"), with the with the rhythm section going on to form FLY MACHINE. CONFESSOR reformed in 2002 following the death of guitarist Ivan Colon, who passed away due to cardiac complications.
Metal musicians have had the following to say about CONFESSOR's return:
Philip Anselmo (PANTERA, SUPERJOINT RITUAL): "CONFESSOR has always been a pillar for top notch 'complex riffing' and amazing drumming with the guts to have a vocalist who sings how he wants to, ignoring any trends for over a decade now..."
Karl Sanders (NILE): "So f*cking heavy, sophisticated and tasteful, the crème de le crème. They were 10 years ahead of their time! Godly!"
Michael Amott (ARCH ENEMY): "Like a fucked up mix of TROUBLE and WATCHTOWER, CONFESSOR raped my ears in the early '90s — I am glad to see them back!!"
