SEASON OF MOURNING is a 5-piece Progressive/Doom Metal band based just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Citing influences such as BLACK SABBATH, PARADISE LOST, and MY DYING BRIDE, as well as many of the more traditional heavy metal bands, SEASON OF MOURNING have been mainstays on the Philadelphia and East Coast Metal scenes for close to 15 years. The well respected band has shared the stage with such Metal luminaries as ACCEPT, ANVIL, RAVEN, DEVIN TOWNSEND, HELSTAR, LACUNA COIL and STRATOVARIUS. With their most stable and talented line-up in years (Billy-guitars, Czar-vocals, Ed-guitars, Gabe-bass and Jesse-drums), the band recorded and released their “Nameless Ones” EP in 2010. After signing with Philadelphia based label, Toil Records in 2012, “Nameless Ones” was released digitally, worldwide, by the label in the same year. Toward the end of 2012, the band began the recording of their full length follow-up to “Nameless Ones”. The new recording, “Salvation”, was completed early May 2013, and mastered by Joey Vera (ARMORED SAINT/FATES WARNING). “Salvation” will be released by Toil Records on September 17, 2013 with the single “Fade” being released in advance on August 20, 2013.
