History

The group was formed in 2007 by guitarist Lasse Pyykkö who had also performed in Phlegethon. He was on guitar at first before adding vocals before also handling the bass. Jori Sara-aho was on bass before switching to drums. The early demo was called The Eyeless Horde. Razorback signed the band and issued an album called Fulfill The Curse. Anima Morte and the band issued a split before the group’s signing with Profound Lore Records and releasing Never Cross The Dead. Pekka Koskelo joined in 2009, but left in 2010 only to return in 2011. Several splits with the likes of Asphyx and Horse Latitudes followed. The third album was on a third label. Season Of Mist signed Finnish death/doom metal band Hooded Menace in late 2016. Harri Kuokkanen (of Ride For Revenge and Horse Latitudes) became the band’s singer in 2016.

The band has almost had as many members and its members have been in as many bands as Donald Trump has had skanks and whores.
