EPHEL DUATH: New Album Details Revealed

Experimental metal act EPHEL DUATH will return with its first album in five years, "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness", on November 19 in Europe and November 26 in North America via Agonia Records.

A video trailer for the CD featuring album artwork created by visionary artists Dehn Sora and Aeron Alfrey can be seen below.

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 EPHEL DUATH mainman Davide Tiso. "Lyrically, the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul-searching quest."
