VLTIMAS (Ex-Morbid Angel/Mayhem, Etc.) Sign With Season Of Mist

VLTIMAS, the band featuring David Vincent (ex-Morbid Angel), Rune “Blasphemer” Eriksen (ex-Mayhem), and Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy), have signed a new deal with Season Of Mist and are planning to release their debut album through the label early next year. The group recorded the effort with producer Jamie Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studio in Bedfordshire, England.

Eriksen commented:

“Feels like aeons ago since I last ventured into these musical shores, but here we are. Its been an intense year and a half with lots of planning, hard work, personal sacrifice and traveling. I believe I speak for all 3 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 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 (UK) for a job superbly done!

We are VLTIMAS.”

I am energized by my partnership with BMG and their commitment to my music, and to powering it with state of the art technology. Kind Heaven is mixed in Dolby Atmos, Binaurally, and, of course, in Stereo.”

9Electric Sign With Pavement Entertainment, Plan To Release New Album “Megalith” In Early 2019

9Electric have signed a new deal with Pavement Entertainment. The band are planning to release their new album, “Megalith,” through the label in early 2019.

Guitarist Mikey Lopez commented:

“We stripped our sound down and got back to basics, writing songs that stood out on their own and weren’t dependent on programming and production. This album is the most honest record of our career.”

“We had a great experience making our last record, but in hindsight I can’t help but feel like we stifled our producer by trying to have too much voice in how he did his job. We learned from that with Shawn [McGhee] – we let him produce, and he let us be us. And the results speak for themselves.”

Vocalist Ron Underwood added:

“The Megalith concept grew straight out of my obsession with lost civilizations and esoteric symbols. Most of the lyrics are introspections into life’s dualities – primarily good and evil, and how they work to create a third and even greater single entity beyond that given dimension.”
