Season of Mist are pleased to announce the signing of South African post metal band Constellatia. The band's debut album 'The Language of Limbs' will be re-released on physical formats later on in 2020. The album can already be heard on all digital streaming platforms HERE.
Regarding the signing, the band comments:-
"We are extremely thrilled and proud to sign with Season of Mist. As big fans of the label, we are humbled and privileged to be in the company of so many great artists who we respect and admire. Thank you to Michael and the team for believing in us, and we look forward to sharing many records with you. Thank you for the support."
Constellatia have previously released a lyric video for the song "All Nights Belong To You", which can be found by clicking here.
Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Constellatia is the collaborative vision of Gideon Lamprecht and Keenan Oakes, founders of well-known acts Crow Black Sky and Wildernessking respectively.
'The Language of Limbs' is essentially a post-metal record with black metal and progressive influences, and a healthy dose of ambience and atmosphere; always deeply engaging with a flair for the romantic and nostalgic. "It is a record that came from a place of desperation; a musical outlet for the years of hardship both members endured in their personal lives." Gideon Lamprecht comments. "It's an album about obsession and overcoming. It's a triumphant record." adds Keenan Oakes.
Formed in September 2018, and enlisting the talents of a few key collaborators, Constellatia soon completed work on the beautiful and emotional ride that is 'The Language of Limbs'. While the drums (Played by Lawrence Jaeger) and vocals were engineered by Daniel Thackwray at City Varsity, Cape Town, all other instruments were recorded by Lamprecht at his home studio in Glencairn, where he also mixed and mastered 'The Language of Limbs'. The album features additional and high class guest vocalists, namely Alison Rachel of Honeymoan and renowned singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, and is an absolute must-have for fans of CULT OF LUNA, OPETH, PINK FLOYD or WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM.

After one month of voting, nearly 6,000 votes cast and countless sharing across all social media platforms by us and nominees alike, the time has come to announce the winners of the GMA Awards 2019.
But before that happens, there will be a change to how the nominees are cast. For 10 months of the year we will be running a series of rounds from which the 10 finalists will be recognised for the annual event.
The system will work as thus: nominees elected in the month of January are voted for in February... February nominees voted in March, etc and finishes with nominees in October being voted for in November - the finalists will then be voted for across the month of December and into early January 2021; finishing 8th January 2021.
Now that's put out into the open, we can finally reveal the winners of the GMA Awards 2019.

One of the biggest brutal death metal releases this year is the full length by South Africa's Vulvodynia on Lacerated Enemy Records. Titled 'Psychosadistic Design', it's everything you would expect from a top-of-the-line brutality-infused death metal album. Featuring guest appearances from members of the best bands in the genre like Waking the Cadaver, Cerebral Bore, Kraanium, Within Destruction, Acrania, Ingested and others, a new level of sickness has been breached here. Extremely corpulent, the music is thriving on sickness, and the whole album pulsates like a goddamn the motherf*cker. As expected from this label, the packaging is impeccable and all steps have been taken to ensure that this causes waves in the underground.
1. Psychosadistic Design
2. Drowned In Vomit
3. King Emesis [Feat. Alex Terrible of Slaughter To Prevail]
