Season Of Mist has announced the signing of VLTIMAS. The three-piece extreme metal formation, consisting of David Vincent (ex-MORBID ANGEL), Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen (ex-MAYHEM, AURA NOIR) and Flo Monier (CRYPTOPSY), has completed the work on its debut album for an early 2019 release.
Eriksen comments: "Feels like aeons ago since I last ventured into these musical shores, but alas, here we are.
"It's been an intense year and a half with lots of planning, hard work, personal sacrifice and yeah, traveling. I believe I speak for all three of us on this matter. Nevertheless, the beast has been summoned and recorded and I am overly confident about the outcome.
"Having had the opportunity to work with some of the finest of craftsmen in the genre, the level of experience speaks volumes. The mutual understanding, vision and drive, everything as if for a greater purpose. That's how the end result sounds like to me.
"A special thank you goes out to longtime partner in crime Michael Berberian and Season Of Mist for the immense belief in this entity, as well as my companion Jaime Gomez Arellano over at Orgone Studio (U.K.) for a job superbly done!
"We are VLTIMAS."

Vincent is also involved with I AM MORBID alongside fellow former MORBID ANGEL member Tim Yeung (drums), plus guitarists Bill Hudson (CIRCLE II CIRCLE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) and Ira Black (METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN).
Formed in 2016, I AM MORBID plays material from MORBID ANGEL's "Altars Of Madness" (1989), "Blessed Are The Sick" (1991), "Covenant" (1993) and "Domination" (1995) albums.
Vincent left MORBID ANGEL in 2015.
