Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of ERDVE. The freshly conceived Lithuanian experimental hardcore collective will release their debut full-length, ‘Vaitojimas’ through Season of Mist.’
The band comments: “Since ERDVE is a very young name, this collaboration is proof that it is all about what matters the most – the music itself. We certainly did not have any expectations that the record could be presented to a wider audience, yet we are extremely proud and happy that our desire to create something meaningful for ourselves has procured a relationship with a record label which believes in artistic value. This partnership is a huge achievement in our creative lives and will set a strong basis for us to communicate our music, ideas, and artistic identity further on. We are incredibly thankful to Season of Mist for this opportunity.”
When ERDVE formed in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius in 2016, the band had a clear aesthetic vision of creating a unique heavy sound that experimented with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal, yet was not bound by any unwritten “rules” surrounding those genres.
ERDVE‘s members had alreay been active in their local scene and performed in various acts such as NYKSTA, SRAIGĖS EFEKTAS, and SPIRALE.
The core ideas of ERDVE are translated into lyrics, visuals, and sound by in-depth reflection on concepts such as domestic violence, utmost disgusting behaviour, crimes against humanity, and extremism.
ERDVE will release their debut album, ‘Vaitojimas” on Season Of Mist in 2018.
