Seth - Debut Album To Be Re-Released

Official Season Of Mist press release:

Back in 1998, Season Of Mist released French black metallers Seth's debut, Les Blessures De L'Ame. The album was greeted with enthusiasm by reviewers and fans alike, as the band combined harsh but melodic black metal with a well thought out concept on vampirism. Brutal, dark and surprisingly catchy, Les Blessures De L'Ame creates gothic atmospheres supported by intelligent keyboard textures. The album quickly gained the status of a cult classic that is hard to find as it is long sold out. Now Season Of Mist is offering a re-release on June 22nd with two bonus tracks and a brand new cover artwork!
