EPHEL DUATH: New EP Details Revealed

EPHEL DUATH, the formerly Italian, currently U.S.-based band which is known as a modern mixture of avant-garde metal and progressive rock with jazz-fusion and hardcore punk elements, will release its new EP, "On Death And Cosmos", on June 21 in Europe and August 14 in the U.S. via Agonia Records. The CD cover artwork was created by visionary French artist Dehn Sora and can be seen below.

"On Death And Cosmos" is a 20-minute mini-concept EP that develops through three songs — "Black Prism", "Raqia" and "Stardust Rain" — creating some of the most intense and mournful music EPHEL DUATH has ever offered. The lyrics are about death and abandonment, loss and self- transforming will: a dive into the darkness that can reveal a new birth in light.

EPHEL DUATH's new EP was recorded at Sharkbyte Studios (MACHINE HEAD, EXODUS, HIGH ON FIRE) in Oakland, California. The effort features guest appearances by Steve DiGiorgio (DEATH, TESTAMENT, SADUS, OBSCURA), Karyn Crisis (CRISIS) and Marco Minemann (PAUL GILBERT, NECROPHAGIST, KREATOR, TONY MACALPINE). The CD was mixed by Erik Rutan at his Mana Recording Studio (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL, GOATWHORE, AGNOSTIC FRONT) in St. Petersburg, Florida. Alan Douches mastered the material at West West Side Music (DEATH, SWANS, MASTODON, CONVERGE, BARONESS, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, CLUTCH) in New Windsor, New York.

EPHEL DUATH's current recording lineup:

Davide Tiso - Guitar
Karyn Crisis - Vocals
Steve DiGiorgio - Bass
Marco Minemann - Drums
