Season of Mist's NOTHNEGAL and Unveil New Track 'Janus' Today -- New Album 'Decadence' Hits Stores on January 24th, 2012 in the United States

Melodic progressive metal powerhouse NOTHNEGAL is teaming up with to bring you the exclusive premiere of their brand new track, ‘Janus’, cut from their upcoming January 24th, 2012 United States release, Decadence, through Season of Mist. Head to right now to listen to the track and stay tuned for a music video hitting the web soon!

“‘Janus’ is the third track from the album. It's got thrash, industrial, progressive and death metal elements so it would be hard to define the overall style of the song but gives an idea of the direction we have taken on Decadence,” states guitarist Hilarl. “This track is probably my favorite track off the album.”

Decadence is set to release in other major international markets four days earlier on January 20th, 2012. The album is mixed by Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Machine Head, DevilDriver) and Ahti Kortelainen (Sentenced, Sonarta Arctica). Decadence marks the first official full-length release from NOTHNEGAL.

Decadence is currently available for pre-order on Season of Mist's e-shop as a limited digipak edition. Each copy from the first pressing of the album will come with a unique code that can allow you to win a trip to the band’s stomping grounds… the Maldives! The 5-day journey will take place at the Fihalhohi Island Resort in Summer 2012. The winner will receive one return flight to the Maldives, an all-inclusive stay (including scuba-diving and other water sport activities) for two people and a meet and greet with the band. More details can be found in the booklet of the album.

NOTHNEGAL boasts a dark melancholic streak flowing through their modern melodic death metal sound, also weaving in very subtle touches of industrial and progressive elements. NOTHNEGAL was founded by guitarists (and cousins) Hilarl and Fufu on the capital island Malé in 2006 after leaving their previous group Mortuary. The cousins are supported by Six Feet Under, Dååth, ex-Chimaira drummer Kevin Talley and Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck (Kalmah, Poisonblack). Decadence demonstrates a quick evolution of NOTHNEGAL from their previously released, self-produced four track EP. Mixed by Finnish producer Anssi Kippo (Children of Bodom, Norther), Antidote of Realism (2009) catapulted the Maldivians into the international scene, who successfully supported Finntroll and Samael during their 2010 European tour covering 25 cities in 12 countries.

Decadence is poised to position NOTHNEGAL above fan’s expectations for just another exotic, eclectic, foreign act, offering a melodic, yet crushing door into the minds of the men behind the helm. This may be the first time you are hearing about NOTHNEGAL, but it certainly will not be the last.
