Death metal outfit FESTERDAY are premiering the first track from their upcoming EP ‘Cadaveric Virginity’ in the form of a music video. The EP will be released on October 26 and can be seen as a prelude of the full length, which is set for 2019. Watch and listen to “The Ones Who Strangle Stars and Suns” via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel.
The band comments: “This video is in the last one in the serie of ”three 7 inches, three videos”. We tried to add some old school 80’s effects and vibe to it, the way videos looked when we started out in the late 80’s. Keeping it simple without the fast cuts like the videos of today.”

Finnish underground cult death metallers FESTERDAY are about to release their two-song EP ‘Cadaveric Virginity’. The EP will give death metal fans a taste of what is to come, as the band’s first full length will be dropped in 2019. In FESTERDAY’s own words, it is shaping up to be “one hell of a ride”.
Starting out in 1989, Pietarsaari, Finland, the musicians were inspired by early, classic death metal acts and named their band after a song on ‘Reek of Putrefaction’ by CARCASS.
Early on in their career, the death metal formation released three demos, in truly laconic Finnish style simply entitled ‘Demo I’ (1991). ‘Demo II’ (1992), and ‘Demo III’ (1992) that gained cult status. ‘Demo II’ was also released on a split with CARNIFEX. In 1993, the group split up.
This could have been the end, but FESTERDAY got together again in 2013, remastered all their previous material with Sami “Jämy” Jämsen at Studio Perkele in November 2014, and released everything on ‘…the Four Stages of Decomposition…’ (2015). Since then, the Finns have continuously worked on their craft, by releasing various splits, compilations and EP’s.
‘Cadaveric Virginity’ marks the band’s first release via the Season of Mist Underground Activists division. On the EP, FESTERDAY reminisce their old school vibe and simultaneously uncover the direction the band will take on their upcoming studio album: flirting with death, punk and blackish nuances. Judging by these first uncompromising tracks, any fan of extreme underground music will be in for a treat.
