Ebonillumini's "Arktos" LP is coming through Wickerman Recordings on June 1st, 2015. The cover artwork can be seen below, and Wickerman comments:
"Ebonillumini is a band of musical traveling nomads who embark upon geographical journeys of discovery. Their mission is to illuminate all things hidden within the ebon shadows of earth, space and time. Musically the band can be described as avant-garde black metal with underlying tones of jazz, classical, and acoustic dark ambient. The cultural musical influences also arise from the lands in which they find themselves.
"'Arktos,' the second full length album by Ebonillumini, is a continuation of the encyclopedic chapter series. Music meant as a sublimation of the spiritual journey, like a cheeky beggar. It is based on a musical concept developed upon geographical exploration and the unveiling of lost forgotten realities, mysteries and legends. More...
