Pitch Black Records has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Trinakrius:
"We are thrilled to welcome Italy’s doom metal masters Trinakrius to our roster! Formed in 1995 and with three albums already under their belt along with a huge experience performing live the band is now back with their new album, 'Introspectum.'
"Trinakrius is clearly a heavy metal band but with cited main influences such as Black Sabbath, Candlemass, and Cathedral one can easily tell that doom is in their blood! Their music is dark, often creating an eerie atmosphere while at other times offers faster galloping riffing. The band’s new album, consisting of 7 tracks and clocking at just over 40 minutes long, is pure doom heavy metal at its very best!
"2015 finds the band with a completely new line up, with only original founding-member Claudio Florio (drums) still present but this year also sees the return of original vocalist Francesco Chiazzese. With a superb new album the band is clearly stating that Trinakriusis here to stay for good!" More...
Trinakrius will be releasing "Seven Songs of Seven Sins" this coming April 9th on End of the Light Records. The artwork and track listing can be viewed below, and the band also commented on its history:
"The Trinakrius project was formed in Palermo in 1995. In 1996 we recorded our first demo tape entitled 'Intrinakrius.' It received quite good reviews in several heavy metal magazines, but despite the reasonable success and numerous performances in local pubs, we splitted up at the end of the same year. During the six years pause we all had our own musical experiences in some other bands (e.g. Holy Knights,Acacia, Synthesys, Black Twilight, and others).
"After this break Trinakrius reunited in 2002 and published the 'Inquisantism' mini concept, whereby the band signed its first contract with the Italian label Doom Symphony and shortly after the first official LP titled 'Sancta Inquisitio.' The band was in July 2006 contacted to play to the Headbangers Open Air festival in Hamburg, and during this event we presented our music to an international audience and expanded our sales of the album. After such a wonderful experience we immediately started working on our new album and we produced a three songs promo CD. Unfortunately our singer had to quit because of personal reasons and left the band.
"Then entered Flavio Rezza as new singer and in April 2007 the band went another time to Germany for the Kutten4ever Festival. After the return to Italy an Austrian label Psychedoomelic Records offered to re-release the first self-produced album 'Inquisantism' and was confirmed for the Up The Hammers Festival in April 2008 (Athens - Greece). During the whole summer Trinakrius worked in the studio on the new album preproduction 'The Black Hole Mind,' which was recorded in December 2007 and released via the german Hellion Records label in autumn 2008.
