"Foret D'Orient is a black metal band from Venice, Italy, enriched with searing riffs, orchestral parts and acoustic inserts sure to please any melodic metal fan. Also used is a 47 string harp playing alongside metal structures, giving the band a bright lively sound. The lyrics of Foret D'Orient are in Italian and Latin because the lyrics deal with the country's obscure cultural themes and history which deserve to be honored in their mother-tongue.

"Essedvm's lyrics and concepts are inspired by the romance Esotericism and ancient Italic hidden episodes rediscovered and given dignity through the music. Essedvm is like the ancient Latin war machine, but also resembles the Ursa Major constellation that inspires the band.

"These Italian newcomers will appeal to fans of WINDIR, ENSIFERUM, HAGGARD, and SEAR BLISS to name a few bands of similar sound, however FORET D'ORIENT seem to bring something new and refreshing to the table while still keeping their music classic. Essedvm is expected to be a gem in many metalheads collections by anno domini 2012."
