Mist is a new all-female doom metal band from Ljubljana (Slovenia), 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. The band released their first demo in November 2013, 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 British retro doom rockers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats in Vienna, Austria and have been confirmed for the Malta Doom Metal Festival 2014.

»This is Occult/Doom Metal of the highest order. Mist have the potential to be something special in the years to come. I can't wait to see what they do next.« - Steve Howe, The Sludgelord
»If this is their rough draft, their full album will be something mighty indeed.« - Gabriel, Ride With The Devil
»Mist are this generations answer to Black Sabbath and Coven.« - Matt Baggins, Two Guys Metal Reviews
»Mist completely bypass the '70s pandering of the occult female-fronted wave going on at the moment and fire up '80s doom metal juggernauts surpassing most current throwback-doom in heaviness.« - Jonslaughter, The Heavy Metal Saloon
»Much like Jex Thoth, her vocals may not be growling, but they are in perfect harmony with her band’s guitar riffs.« - Jasmine Hatton, Metal Master Kingdom
»The opener Phobia is easily the best song of the two with excellent riffs, fantastic vocals and great lead work. The tone of the song is drenched in an occult gloom which I found much to my liking with whispering doubled over the chorus and plenty of tri tone riffage.« - Brendan Butler, Temple Of Perdition
»Especially The Living Dead will blow your mind with the main riff and you feast your ears with Nina Spruk's vocals that seem to come straight from the 70s.« - Dimitris Kontogeorgakos, Metal Kaoz
»Mist totally surprised me with this golden oldie classic-style original-fountain doom.« - Metal Bulletin Zine
»Then again, I get fucken carried away easily with stuff like this. I mean, these girls and Nina Spruk in particular is serious fucken competition for Noora Federley.« - Flemming Gabin, Masterful Magazine
»Vocalist Nina Spruk has something of Jex Thoth in her voice, and is also capable of hitting some reasonably high notes with alacrity. She also sounds as stoned as Zeeb Parkes and as menacing as Scott Reagers: born to be a doom metal singer.« - Jonslaughter, The Heavy Metal Saloon
»Sehr schön und ausdrucksstark ist die Stimme von Sängerin Nina. Erinnert mich an Alia O'Brien von Blood Cermony. Die Frau kann wirklich singen.« - Doomhead, Hell Is Open
