Thu, Mar 12 2015: THE LION'S DAUGHTER

Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of St. Louis, Missouri based THE LION'S DAUGHTER. The American metal band will enter the studio in the spring to record their Season of Mist album debut for a late 2015 release.

The band comments: "We are three incredibly particular individuals, who are very critical of modern metal, and have been working hard the last year and a half trying to write an album that would be something we'd want to listen to."

THE LION'S DAUGHTER were formed in 2007 by guitarist and vocalist Rick Giordano, drummer Erik Ramsier, and bassist Scott Fogelbach. The band was originally conceived out of hatred for the insincere and uninspired fodder choking the mainstream metal scene. They take notes from a myriad of metal's extremes, but live by no musical limitations and are driven to please no audience but themselves. The band does not play as if it simply wants to see this world end. Their sound rather implies that they want to be the ones to destroy it.


Since their inception, THE LION'S DAUGHTER have built a reputation as a formidable live force, sharing the stage with HIGH ON FIRE, PIG DESTROYER, EYEHATEGOD, TORCHE, MISERY INDEX, NACHTMYSTIUM, DARK FUNERAL, and more. Staying true to their underground ethic, the band toured around the country on the backs of several independent releases. THE LION'S DAUGHTER have won the St. Louis Riverfront Times reader's poll as "Best Metal Band of the Year" several times over.

Their music comes with the obvious metal influences, with the expected anger and aggression. Yet also something of the mood and atmosphere of groups like SKINNY PUPPY or even GOBLIN are creeping in.

"We're all giant horror movie fans and listen to a lot of soundtrack music, and I think a lot of that has naturally begun to surface, causing fairly maniacal songs to actually move in sort of a cinematic way at times", the band continues. "We spent a lot of time in a dark basement getting these songs to the place that they needed to go. The end result is something we're extremely proud of and cannot wait to commit to tape for a record label that we respect for having the guts to release scary, fucked up music without limitations. These new songs are apocalyptic and eerie, full of fear and dread, hate and sadness... they come from the gut. For whatever reason, it's the natural sound that's made when the three of us come together, and we are completely comfortable with that."
