Experimental metal act Ephel Duath returns with its first full-length album in 5 years, “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness.” This album follows previous EP “On Death and Cosmos” (reviewed here).
The album is scheduled for a November 19th release in Europe, and November 26th in North America via Agonia Records. A video trailer featuring album artwork created by Dehn Sora and Aeron Alfrey can be seen below.
“This album holds together all that Ephel Duath’s music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further,” comments Davide Tiso. “Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest.”
Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness” includes a unique line-up of: Marco Minnemann (Kreator, Necrophagist, Joe Satriani) behind the drums, Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass, lead singer Karyn Crisis (Crisis, Karyn Crisis Band) along with the founder, guitarist n’ songwriter: Davide Tiso.
