Three years after the second full-length 'Faunalia', the singer/keyboardist Selvans returns with a new EP. 'Dark Italian Art' is definitely the Manifesto of the Italian composer. Selvans confirms the prog rock and symphonic influences introduced in the previous work (with Goblin and Devil Doll ruling the roost), imprinting them definitely in his folk-horror scenery. The EP introduces 'Corvo Morto' (Italian for 'Dead Crow'), a character created by Selvans in collaboration with the horror writer Luigi Musolino and to whom the track 'Verrà Corvo Morto' (Italian for 'Corvo Morto will come') is connected, as well as the homonimous tale attached to the 80 pages digi-book version of the EP. Aside from the second new track 'Iò Pan!' and the outro 'L'Errante', Selvans celebrates the artistic heritage of his country with the cover of 'The Hanged Ballad' taken from the first Death SS' album and a cover medley of the legendary album 'Inferno' by Metamorfosi, a progressive italian rock band from the 70's. This will be the first work in which Selvans is joined by his full live band, made of valid musicians who are with him since several years of concerts. Learned the lesson of the great masters of the horror and the absurd in music – with Screamin' Jay Hawkins and King Diamond above all – Selvans offers a decandent and peculiar interpretation which is brazenly Italian. Walking among woods and ruins of ghost villages, Selvans leads a procession of outcasts hidden behind animal masks, on a muddy stage weaved with roots, whispering rituals of rural magic and cursed doggerels. Curtain up!

Description
Hedon (Sweden) started in the break of 2012-13, and released an album -13 on our own, Summon the demons. During the following years we had a break due to different circumstances beyond our control. Iconic cult underground EP from 1991 now reissued in a nice gatefold cover and color vinyl between italian underground shadows Monumentum and Greek black occult metal herous Rotting Christ Initially formed under the working title, ?Order of Shadow? (at the time including Gareth Murdock of Alestorm), Drakonis has been an on going project for many years, featuring Saul McMichael and Lee McCartney of pagan metal veterans, Waylander. The band remained a studio project until 2015, when a line up was assembled to take things to the live arena. ?The Great Miasma? is the third release from the band and a concept EP with a story spanning three songs. Each chapter follows the ritualistic sacrifice, possession and wrath of a young girl to appease an ancient god. Each song will be accompanied by a story driven, highly visual music video, released out of sequence, bringing the bands live theatrics to the medium of film. Only when all three videos have been released and played in order, will the story become clear. 2020 long playing mini album, twin release of the new "The Degenerate Era" album
