Pythia Announces New Album "The Serpent's Curse," Shoots New Music Video

Pythia has revealed the details of the band's second album "The Serpent's Curse," which will be released on February 27th, 2012 on Golden Axe via Genepool/Universal in the UK. Just in time for Yule Tide, Pythia will release an advance single, "Betray My Heart," on the 19th of December on an extremely limited edition colored vinyl 7", with a remixed version appearing on the B-side, and as a CD/digital download.

Guitarist Ross comments, "Betray My Heart is a dark, heavy and very 'full on' song. Heavy Riff after heavy riff, pummeling drums, layers of epic keys and Emily's trademark soaring, emotion drenched vocals full of dark yet catchy melodies. This ain't no sugar-coated pop metal, it's dark symphonic power-thrash metal!"

The band has also completed work on a video to accompany the single. Drummer Marc comments, "This video was all about capturing the energy and emotion of both the song itself, and the band's live shows. Pounding and aggressive, yet intimate and emotive, personal and introspective, but spewing forth a venomous assault."

The video was filmed at the majestic St. John's of Hackney at the end of summer; a fitting baptism by fire for new bassist Mark Harrington. Mark's first response on coming through the door was "Whew…. These guys are nuts, what have I let myself in for," but was followed by "It's a real honour to be providing the bottom-end rumble to such a sterling bunch of metal warriors! I'm really looking forward to the exciting things we have planned in the next few months..."

The band also commented about filming the video and releasing a new album: "During the making of 'The Serpent's Curse' we encountered the highs and lows of human experience. From the darkness of death to the wonder of birth as a band we faced these colossal events united. This album sprung from our endeavours to understand the circle of life, the mighty force of nature and our fight for survival."
