[05.02.2016] SACRILEGIUM: Premiere New Track from Upcoming Album “Anima Lucifera" at NO CLEAN SINGING
A brand new track from Sacrilegium’s upcoming full-length comeback, Anima Lucifera, is now streaming. The track, “Venomous Spell of Fate”, was debuted by No Clean Singing yesterday and is available under the following link:
Anima Lucifera is the second full-length release of the band, recorded almost 20 years after the release of their influential debut, Wicher (1996). The new album is decidedly more brutal and aggressive, yet at the same time not lacking the touch of melancholy which characterises Sacrilegium’s music. The musicians are convinced that with this album they have managed to include and release everything which has been stuck in them all these years.
The album title refers directly to a line from a poem by Leopold Staff; excerpts of which have been used in the new Sacrilegium tracks. Similarly, the works of W. B. Yeats and Ferdnando Pessoa appear next to Nantur’s original lyrics. The pagan spirt evolved from popular tradition in the direction of the esoteric school. Anima Lucifera explores occult themes, which accompanied the band members at the beginning of their journey in the 1990s. Today, however, their music is richer thanks to the experience they have gained over the last 20 years.
Anima Lucifera was recorded in the autumn of 2015 at the Pomeranian North Studio. Mixing and mastering duties were undertaken by Nihil (Furia, Morowe, Massemord) at Czyściec Studio (www.czysciec.net). The author of the artwork, and the whole graphic design of the album, is Marcin Łojek (Thaw, Nadja, Sunrise).
Anima Lucifera will be available on 18 March 2016 via Pagan Records as a digipak CD, digital or gatefold LP.
