Eye Of Solitude, UK's orchestral funeral doom finest (featuring members of Unfathomable Ruination and Kaotoxin Records label-mates Sidious), which released its successful and critically-acclaimed second full-length "Sui Caedere" in June 2012 through Kaotoxin, has returned with a monolith of heaviness entitled "Canto III." A video teaser for "Canto III" has been posted below.

The album, lyrically-based on Dante's Inferno and featuring six tracks for a total duration of over 66 minutes, is by far the most intense and heavy, yet diverse material the band has ever released, topped by the inhuman low growls of EOS mastermind Daniel Neagoe and the contributions of violinist Casper and vocalist Anton, both from Russia's Dominia.

"Canto III is the most mature material we've worked on," comments Neagoe. "Its elements vary from pure agonizing and suffocatingly depressive moments, to a burst of rage and blast beats invoking quite a Black Metal environment. It's a development for sure due to the new line-up and its input on the songs and, with guests from Dominia -Anton on vocals and Casper on violin- we have included even more atmosphere and variety. It is for sure, our peak of creativity and musicianship!"

Coming as a limited edition (1,000 hand-numbered copies) double DigiFile CD, the first pressing features no less than six bonus tracks taken from the band's 2011 untitled promo (later digitally released by Kaotoxin as the "Awoken by Crows" EP) and "The Deceit" digital EP for a total of nearly 39 minutes of additional material.

With stunning artwork by Mortal Torment's own Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art (responsible for the "Sui Caedere" artwork), "Canto III" will be released on November 25th in France (Season Of Mist), UK (Code7) and through the label's mailorder for international territories and December 3rd in the BeNeLux (Rock Inc.), North America (MVD) and through all major digital retailers.

Pre-order opportunities, including exclusive merch packs, will start on October 28th. The US release will mark the first time ever that "Sui Caedere," re-pressed for this occasion, will hit North America retail stores and mail order distros.
