Ephel Duath Reveals "Through My Dog's Eyes" Details, An Album From The Perspedctive Of Dog

Italian avant-garde metallers EPHEL DUATH will release their fourth studio album, "Through My Dogs Eyes," in January 2009.

EPHEL DUATH has never been one to take the traditional approach to creating music and their latest effort takes this outlook even further. "Through My Dogs Eyes" is based on a bizarre concept conjured up by guitarist and founding member Davide Tiso, in which the entire album is written from the perspective of a dog. Tiso explains: "I wrote a few short stories and it was really fun for me to imagine myself as a dog and to imagine the world from a dog's perspective. The challenge was to translate the words into lyrics."

From opening track "Gift," which Tiso describes as being about "A cat that the dog kills for the owner as a gift, and he asks the owner if he is happy with the present", to the thought-provoking "Promenade," a song about a walk in the park which takes a twist when the owner questions himself as to why he's not as carefree and happy with life as his dog is, the barking mad brilliance runs throughout the course of the whole album. "Every song is a window into the dog's mind or an event," Tiso continues, "The album touches on a lot of things, both deep and sometimes silly."

It's not only the lyrics in "Through My Dogs Eyes" which are written from the dog's perspective - rather the entire album, including the music, is based around this unique and previously unexplored concept. "The music in this case is the soundtrack of the thoughts of the dog - at times you can hear the dog running," Tiso elaborates.

"Through My Dogs Eyes" is due to be released through Earache Records on January 26th, 2009.
