Ephel Duath: The Return

After a five year hiatus, Davide Tiso and company are back!

Exceptional and experimental metal act Ephel Duath returns with its first album in five years, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness. The album is scheduled for a November 19th release in Europe/UK and November 26th in North America via Agonia Records. A Video trailer featuring album artwork created by visionary artists Dehn Sora and Aeron Alfrey can be seen at: http://youtu.be/YJonIQqGjCY  

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, ED 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 15 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... includes a unique lineup 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.

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.
