Symphonic black metal masters LIMBONIC ART have returned from the dead! On 06.06.06, the group's two members, Daemon and Morfeus, decided to recurrect the band and have written and recorded a new album. The band has re-signed with Nocturnal Art Productions/Candlelight Records, and the comeback CD, entitled "Legacy of Evil", is set for release this summer. According to a press release, "LIMBONIC ART strike back with full force, more intense and malevolent than ever. This is a well-crafted black metal massacre, with heart and soul!'

Formed in 1993, LIMBONIC ART for a short time existed as a four-member project. It wasn't until inventor Daemon met up with local musician Morfeus, however, that the true nucleus and unconventional concept of the band was found. With the duo thus sorting all areas of what most would consider a "normal" band relationship, Daemon and Morfeus completed a four-track rehearsal tape that would merely hint at the band's distinctive take on symphonic black metal.

Fast forward to 1996 and shortly after hearing the band's only recorded material; Nocturnal Art Productions owner Samoth (ZYKLON, EMPEROR) instantly offered LIMBONIC ART a recording deal. That autumn the band's much-revered debut, "Moon in the Scorpio", was recorded and later released. The debut album led to great recognition in the extreme metal scene worldwide, and fast established LIMBONIC ART as of the best new bands to come out of the Norwegian scene. "In Abhorrence Dementia" (1997), "Epitome of Illusions" (1998), "Ad Noctum - Dynasty of Death" (1999) and two collectable box sets ("Chronicles of Limbo" six-picture-disc box, 2000) and "Volume 1-4" CD box, 2001) followed, finding the band further widespread acclaim. Touring, festival appearances, including their headline (and U.S. debut) at the 2001 Milwaukee Metal Fest, as well as outside interests (Daemon's vocal duties on ZYKLON's debut album "World of Worms", and Morfeus' side-project DIMENSION F3H) kept the duo amassed in creative outpourings through the early millennium. In 2002, LIMBONIC ART returned with arguably their pre-eminent opus. The band's final album, "The Ultimate Death Worship", was hailed as the band's crowning achievement. Since the departure the two members have been active on different fronts, Daemon with his thrash metal band SARCOMA INC., and Morfeus with DIMENSION F3H, both releasing full-length albums.

the circle is complete begin another as they once sayd , most bands with combacks don't have the same touch, hopefully "legacy of evil " will shiver our dreams to the death.It's an age of nightmares and dreams
While we are barely children of the age
Floating on waves of cold etherial streams
A tributary to the symphony of decay
