Hailing from New York, Ken Candelas (The Mad Composer), Andrew Petriske (The Daemon), and Obed Gonzalez (The Gatherer) have been painstakingly crafting their album over the last three years and the attention to detail has certainly paid off. Their song writing is extremely developed and incorporates musical elements from a plethora of genres and styles, ranging from classical to the darkest shade of black metal, all playing out in an almost operatic fashion.
For fans of Behemoth, King Diamond and Nightwish, their Lead track, A Song of the Night Part 1 is a perfect summation of their beguiling work – effortlessly gorgeous melody intertwined with behemoth-like power, the dimensions they take your mind to are truly thrilling. Their passion for unhinged, challenging art ranges from the traditional gothic to the twisted, epic, video game worlds of God of War, giving you glimpses of the darker sides of humanity before whisking you off to plague-infected pastures new.
