"Dear friends and fans, our new album (out in 2014) will be titled 'Ecnephias' as our name and will also feature the homonymous title track, the definitive seal of our new style: projected into the future but with some references to our past.
"The music will surprise you, there will be a heavy dose of dark rock (the Cure, Tiamat), gothic metal (Paradise Lost, Moonspell) and, of course, the usual atmosphere of our 'death doom' style. Damn melancholy and deep, epic.
"In the next 'opus' you will also find a folk song with a Mediterranean theme music, a dark and atmospheric lullaby of South Italy, vaguely reminiscent of Lost Love Ballad (Lost God). Stay tuned!" More...
