Latest Quinta Essentia News
Below is our complete Quinta Essentia news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Long-running extreme metal unit Quinta Essentia is pleased to issue the visual accompaniment to "The Stone As A Key." The psalm comes by way of the "Initiates Of The Great Work" full-length album, released earlier this year via Deathgasm and up for streaming here.
Recorded and engineered by former drummer Lance Wright at Stargate Studios in Huntsville, Alabama and mixed by Wright and Colin Davis (Vile), the ten-track offering centers itself around alchemy, electromagnetic energy, the illusions manifested in our culture, and expanded consciousness.
Elaborates band founder Jason Flippo: "Transcend into the world of sorcery and alchemy with us as we journey through hidden landscapes which are obscured by distraction yet revealed by determination. The true potential of our endeavors and the endeavors of the human race are unveiled by the very realization of their existence. The potential of metal music to be the vessel in which the higher purpose (or alchemical stone) can be attained is the unifying and healing element within the movement to make a powerful presence known to those who choose."

NOMINON, the Swedish death metallers who recently embarked on their first US tour in July with label mates QUINTA ESSENTIA, had lots of good things to say about their experience. From drummer, Parra:
"USA....You guys fucking RULE!!! Our infernal voyage in USA was nothing but a pure success. We played nine shows in two weeks and managed to play a different setlist at each and every show, which surprised quite a few fans. Of course we would like to say thanks to a bunch of people, these following labels, bands and people in general; *Evan and Deathgasm Records* for the eternal support, you fucking rule man!! *QUINTA ESSENTIA*, you guys made this tour one of the smoothest rides for us so far...Beer drinking and Hellraising motherfuckers, just like us. *Matt and Central Illinois Metalfest* for booking NOMINON, wish things will work out for ya so there will be a fest even next year, you deserve nothing but the best. *John and IbexMoon Records.*, *Alex* for letting us use the van, it meant a lot to us. *INCANTATION*, you sickos are definitely some of the coolest Metalheads alive. *Tomas Pascual* of NYDM and *DUFF's Brooklyn*. *Steveggs* for all the photos and crazy, yet good times. *Kenny* for buying the whole band like 100's of beers at the C.I.M. You amazed us all.
"There's plenty of other promoters and grotesque freaks that we would like to say Thanks and Hell-o to right now, but you guys will be mentioned on the next album, for sure.
"Worth mentioning also is that during the last show in Nashville, Tennessee, NOMINON celebrated their 100th show!! Death metal country....HELL YEAH!!! "

Alabama’s QUINTA ESSENTIA have posted the following update:
“Thanks to all of the fans, promoters, zines, hellraisers, and so fourth that helped to make the tour happen or contributed in some way. QUINTA ESSENTIA sends thanks to all who helped us out with places to crash and were kind enough to welcome us into their homes, rehearsal spaces, garages, and wherever we ended up. As a whole the tour was a great experience. Evan March from Deathgasm really came through for us and booked a ton of shows on just enough notice to get it done. His help is much appreciated. When BENEDICTION had to cancel the US tour we had all of the gears in motion to go out so therefore that is what we did. We intend to make regular posts about touring certain cities as there were many different things happening night after night. Of course priorities first and the new album ‘Archetypal Transformation’ will be coming soon on Deathgasm Records. It is intended to be finished by the end of the year. So if some time goes by without a post, you will know of course that we are hard at work on our metal as some of the MySpace junkies should be.”
