INSOMNIUS DEI, the Australian ambient/experimental doom/death project led by Mark Kelson (THE ETERNAL, CRYPTAL DARKNESS), has has inked a deal with Firebox sub-label Firedoom Music. The group's debut album, "Illusions of Silence", was recorded at Kelson's No. 13 Studios in Melbourne, Australia with Mark engineering and producing. Mastering duties were handled by Endel Rivers, who works with Mark's other band THE ETERNAL as engineer/producer. A June release is expected.In early 2006, on completion of the music for "Illusions of Silence", Mark decided that the addition of other musicians would make the album more than just another one-dimensional solo album. As a result, the talents of Terry Vainoras were enlisted. Terry is best known in Australia for his work with the likes of DAMAGED, EARTH, CANONERO and CRYPTAL DARKNESS. Terry is also the major lyrical contributor to INSOMNIUS DEI, and his vocals range from gentle and emotive to straight-out brutal and aggressive. Working on INSOMNIUS DEI is like coming full circle for Mark and Terry, having both been in the Melbourne scene for over 10 years, as well as collaborating previously in CRYPTAL DARKNESS. Musically, INSOMNIUS DEI can be described as PINK FLOYD laced with death/doom metal, often ambient and beautiful, yet full of heartfelt aggression and heaviness. From the dirty and dissonant to the melodic and dreamy, INSOMNIUS DEI is for those who like to lay back, put their headphones on and immerse themselves in a sonic journey of epic proportions.
