Ecliptica Signs to Frontiers Records

Frontiers Records has announced the signing of ECLIPTICA for the release of their debut album "Impetus" on December 5, 2008.

ECLIPTICA is a heavy metal band from Austria founded by guitarist Markus Winkler in 2005. He put together a line-up with six members in total, together with the other guitar player Bernie Scholz, Thomas Tieber and Elisabeth Fangmeyer on vocals, plus Florian Thür and Roman Klomfar on bass and drums respectively.

ECLIPTICA soon started to write songs and in April 2007 released their critically acclaimed first EP, "The Awakening" in front of 500 people at Planet Music Vienna. During the promotion for the Ep, ECLIPTICA won the "Metal Battle Austria 2007" contest and played a live set at the world famous WACKEN OPEN AIR in Germany, not forgetting that they have also landed a support slot for the major US prog metal gods SYMPHONY X.

In January 2008 the band entered the Hinterhof Studios in Vienna to record their first full length album "Impetus," which is now being released on the international markets by Frontiers Records.

The music of ECLIPTICA is defined in their musical roots: blending the traditional heavy metal of the 80's together with intricate rhythms and progressive elements from all decades. The songwriting however is very personal and original, thus making them instantly recognizable thanks to the use of two vocalists and to the classical music elements that are incorporated in their songs.

The "Impetus" tracklisting includes: Impetus, My Paradise (mp3), Land of Silence (mp3), Carry On (mp3), Twilight Hall, Turn Away, Old Man’s Memories mp3), Watching You, Jester in the Ballroom, Black Swan.
