By on October 18, 2013


Experimental metal band EPHEL DUATH premiere a lyric video for the song “Shaped By Darkness”. It is the second song to be released from “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness” album, due for release on November 19th in Europe and November 26th in North America via Agonia Records. The video is available for viewing at Lambgoat

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 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.


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.
