Regarding their signing, HIEROPHANT comment: "We are very pleased to be part of the Season of Mist family. We thank all those who have supported us, worked with us, and contributed to the growth of our band." Established in 2010 in Italy, HIEROPHANT (feat. former members of THE SECRET) have since cut their teeth in the underground grind and hardcore scenes through the release of three well-received full lengths and several tours across Europe. The band's aggressive take on extreme hardcore and metal amalgamates massive sonic impact with tinges of sludge, death and black metal, and a visceral punk attitude. HIEROPHANT have announced tour dates in Australia at the end of this year, as well as tour dates across Italy in January.
