SETH Premiere New Track

French black metal innovators SETH released the first new track from their forthcoming album, The Howling Spirit. A lyric video for the song Scars Born From Bleeding Stars is streaming now via SMN News. The Howling Spirit is slated for a North American release date on June 11.

SETH recently reactivated following the re-release of their critically acclaimed 1998 debut Les Blessures de I’Ame. The new edition is remastered and includes two bonus tracks and brand new artwork. The re-issue is currently available on Season of Mist’s E-shop as CD and hand-numbered, double gatefold LP limited to 500 copies.

Regarding the new incarnation of the band, band leader Heimoth issued the following statement:

“This is some exceptional moment for us as we are now officially back on the very same label that released our first album in ’98 and I guess this truly makes our recent comeback even more worthwhile. Both parts have taken different directions for more than 10 years but we are thrilled to unveil The Howling Spirit together. I personally feel this is a significant step forward born from the special relationship the band and SOM have had through the years.”

SET TO REFLECT Sign With Standby Records

(Akron, Ohio) – SET TO REFLECT signed with Standby Records. The band is set to release their debut EP April 2.

Debut EP Available April 2nd

Vocalist Tony McVaney commented on signing to Standby Records:

“We’ve been writing this record over the past 3 years and to us it’s crazy that its finally done and coming to life. We knew right away we wanted to go into the studio with Landon Tewers. We’ve worked with him before and he believes in our music just as much as we do so we know it’s going to come out perfect. We really can’t be more proud of anything we’ve ever done and we hope everyone who listens to the record can love it just as much as we do.”

Check out the video of the band announcing their signing to Standby Records HERE.

The post-hardcore quintet was originally formed by best friends Tony Mcvaney and Alan Bryan after the demise of their past bands. Not willing to settle for members that were less than perfect, the two recorded three demos with producer Landon Tewers and began try outs. After almost a full year of struggling with temporary members that did not quite fit, things began to fall into place with the addition of bassist Trevor Jenkins, guitarist Matthew Luthie, and lastly, percussionist William Green.

After completing the line-up, the band quickly found their footing, followed by a flurry of writing, recording, and touring. This spring will begin the next big phase in the bands life, as they begin tracking their debut full-length and national touring.

With a fresh new attitude, the drive to make great music for their audience and the delivery of an intense live show to back it, SET TO REFLECT is happy to finally be rolling full force into the future, making new fans and friends. The future could not be brighter.
