JOHNNY THE BOY sign to Season of Mist

Posted on March 14, 2022

Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of JOHNNY THE BOY, the menacing arm of creepy music deemed too heavy for the mother band Crippled Black Phoenix! Consisting of Justin Greaves & Belinda Kordic (CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX) and Matt Crawford, the band is gearing up for their debut release via Season of Mist. Musically, JOHNNY THE BOY consist of Bathory style elements, some Tragedy style crust, a touch of ‘Satyricon BlacknRoll’ and a bit of fast Motörhead. All with Belinda’s vicious black metal style vocals and mixed with some howls and haunts!

The band comment: “After years of a successful relationship between CBP and Season Of Mist, course we are psyched to be working with SoM again with our new band thing. Johnny The Boy. It’s like the best kind of home for a misfit band like us.”

Season of Mist CEO Michael Berberian comments on the signing: “When we received the new Crippled Black phoenix album, I loved the bonus track. But it sounded totally different, not CBP at all. So I called Justin:

“WTF is this! it’s cool”

Justin G: “yeah! Glad you like it! We’re thinking of doing a whole album like this”

“I’ll sign it”

And there it was, here is Johnny the Boy, the extreme metal outlet from the mastermind behind CBP, Iron Monkey, etc. You know it’s going to be interesting.”
