Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of the Norwegian extreme metal band GAAHLS WYRD. The band, fronted by the legendary vocalist GAAHL (ex-GORGOROTH, ex-WARDRUNA), have recorded their debut album in the Solslottet Studios with producer Iver Sandøy (ENSLAVED). The forthcoming album is set for release next year.
Regarding their signing, the band comments, “It’s always been of outmost importance for us to work with people that we can relate to, trust, and will understand our creative and professional vision. Season of Mist feels like home to us and we can’t wait to start what hopefully will be a long and rewarding relationship for both parties.”
Since rising to prominence with his first band TRELLDOM, legendary singer, frontman, artist and composer, GAAHL has been one of Norway’s most talked about and respected extreme metal musicians. His work with TRELLDOM, GORGOROTH, WARDRUNA and GOD SEED has been widely regarded as some of the best the black metal scene has had to offer.
GAAHLS passion and dedication to his art has earned him followers far and beyond the realms of the metal community, becoming a household name in the art scene and a he has become a well-respected alternative thinker. GAAHL has been the subject of multiple documentaries about his personal life, the extreme metal scene in Europe, and more, having famously appeared on “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey”, Vice’s Black Metal Documentary, and much more.
Recently the charismatic singer has assembled some of Norway’s finest metal musicians under the new moniker GAAHLS WYRD. The band consist of Ole Walaunet (THE BATALLION, GOD SEED, GRIMFIST), Frode Kilvik (KRAKOW, AETERNUS) and Kevin Kvåle (HORIZON ABLAZE). This highly qualified group has recently toured a career spanning set from Gaahl’s time in TRELLDOM, GORGOROTH and GOD SEED to great acclaim.
Over the past months the band have holed up in Solslottet Studios with producer Iver Sandøy (ENSLAVED) to record their debut album.
