Season of Mist to reissue ATHEIST’s classic ‘Piece of Time’


Season of Mist is proud to announce a new deluxe CD + DVD reissue of ATHEIST’s legendary debut album, ‘Piece of Time’.

ATHEIST was one of the first truly adventurous bands to break out of the late 80’s death metal underground. In addition to their three early albums (‘Piece of Time’, ‘Unquestionable Presence’, and ‘Elements’) being benchmarks of quality and progression, the band’s musical vision directly influenced many noteworthy artists both past (CYNIC, later-era DEATH, PESTILENCE) and present (The DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, NECROPHAGIST, SPIRAL ARCHITECT).

Season of Mist will release ATHEIST’s 1990 debut full-length ‘Piece of Time’ on August 5th. An absolute classic metal album in every sense of the word – the CD release includes nine bonus tracks of rare early recordings and demos.

The reissue also includes a DVD companion, featuring rare and never-before-scene material such as:
