Season of Mist has announced the signing of Finnish death metal act FESTERDAY. The band, featuring ex-members of …And Oceans, among others, will release their debut full-length later this year.
Festerday comments: “It is now close to 25 years, following our decision to split up. It has taken as many years after writing any songs for this band that we got our shit together again and came up with new material to see where this might take us. Six new songs later, we sent them to various labels and magazines. Much to our surprise, the feedback was overwhelming. After negotiating with different labels and pondering over their offers, we decided to take action and double the excitement by joining a familiar and globally established label: Season of Mist. It feels like coming full circle to return to the label, where it all started with …And Oceans over 20 years ago. Like in this old proverb, it goes without saying: the frost will drive a pig back home.”
Festerday was a Finnish Death metal band, formed in 1989. The band was named after a Carcass song found on “Reek of Putrefaction”. The band released three demos, simply entitled as “Demo I” , “Demo II” and “Demo III” .”Demo II” was also released as a split-demo with another Finnish Death metal band – Carnifex.
After these two demos, the band changed its name several times from “Cardinal” to “Peacefrog” to finally “andOceans” in 1995. Band was eventually named as “Havoc Unit”.
Festerday members have been splattered all over different genres and bands such as Havoc Unit and Hidria Spacefolk to name a few.
