Season of Mist have announced the signing of BIZARREKULT! The new offering will be released via Season of Mist Underground Activists early 2023.
BIZARREKULT mastermind Roman comments on the signing: “I am so excited, WOW! It is an honour to join the Season of Mist family and I would like to use this opportunity to thank them for their trust and support. I could not imagine a better place for BIZARREKULT and looking forward to sharing my new album with old and new fans around the world.”
For a glimpse of what’s to come, check out BIZARREKULT‘s debut album Vi Overlevde at Bandcamp here.
BIZARREKULT was formed in 2006 by Roman V., when living in Siberia, out of necessity and wish to create his own music to go along with the poetry that he had been writing since his childhood. From the beginning, BIZARREKULT was a quest of identity and philosophical search for answers for questions that bother the mind at night and day.
After some initial recordings and relocation to Norway, the project was set aside in order to deal with life challenges only to get a new spark a decade later. The most recent years were spent on self-reflection and search for a meaning and purpose, reuniting with the things that were important – art and creativity, leading to revitalization of BIZARREKULT.
This all resulted in the release of the band’s debut album Vi Overlevde (which translates to “We Survived”) in 2021. Intimate, open and very personal Vi Overlevde is a testament to survival through personal crisis filled with the reflections of childhood, family and societal relations. In the middle of another pandemic year, the title was giving hope, and it quickly became a favourite among many, giving the listener a complete package where music, lyrics and artworks align into one voice. The album ended op in various EOTY lists, including a well-deserved 3rd place from Swedish biggest newspaper Aftonbladet.
The upcoming second album, and the debut for Season of Mist, will pick up where Vi Overlevde left off. But rather than a continuation, an internal evolution has taken place which proofs that BIZARREKULT is the living evidence that through extreme music we can talk about difficult things in an elegant way.
