Experimental metal act EPHEL DUATH returns with it's first album in five years, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness. The album is scheduled for a November 19th release in Europe, and November 26th in North America via Agonia Records.
Ignited by commitment and passion, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, and a strong statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, Ephel Duath takes an uncompromising will to experiment, to a whole new level of intensity.
"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 eight new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness includes a unique lineup of: Marco Minnemann (KREATOR, NECROPHAGIS, 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 and songwriter Davide Tiso.
The album was produced by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Studios, NY.
