Slovenian doom metal ladies MIST, which returns to the live stage after a short absence, are set to embark on their first ever European mini-tour by the end of May. For now scheduled shows are booked in Belgium and The Netherlands. Before that they will appear at Doom Fest 2014: Night Of The Fallen Angels II in Italy and also support heavy metal veterans Helstar, led by the legendary James Rivera (Sabbath Judas Sabbath, Distant Thunder, Malice) in their hometown, Ljubljana. MIST have also been comfirmed for the Malta Doom Metal Festival 2014 and Hammer Of Doom Festival in Germany.
MIST is a new all-female occult doom metal band from Ljubljana, formed in July 2012. They build their music on the legacy of legendary bands like Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Candlemass, Coven, Saint Vitus and others. With the premiere live show at the end of September 2013 the girls without a doubt demonstrated, that such a specific genre of music is not necessarily just a men’s domain. MIST released their first demo simply entitled ‘Demo 2013‘ (review here) in November last year, which was re-issued only 2 weeks later due the large interest. Their demo also received many promising reviews and radio airplays from all over the globe. Even though they are a young band they already had a chance to support Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats in Vienna, Austria.
