Mist is a female fronted 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.
The band released their first demo recording simply entitled »Demo 2013« in November last year and it has been re-issued on CD three times due to great interest.
They have also received many promising reviews and radio airplays from all over the globe. Even though they are a young band they have already had a chance to support some great acts, such as Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Saint Vitus, Mount Salem, Avatarium, Manilla Road, Forsaken, Kadavar, Helstar, Officium Triste, Ophis and Cauchemar, and have already toured Austria, Italy, Malta, Germany Belgium and the Netherlands.

»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
