Reino Ermitano Starts Work On New Album

Female fronted Peruvian doom band Reino Ermitano has commenced work on it's fourth album. Titled "Veneracion del Fuego," the album should be out later in 2012. Reino Ermitano also plans to tour Europe for the second time once the album drops. You may stream music from the band's earlier releases on MySpace and check out a YouTube video for the older track "Melquiades," which possibly gets it's title from the magician in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's literary work "100 Years of Solitude."
