Helioss’s new album “Antumbra” will be released in March 2017 by Apathia Records. It will feature 11 new tracks blending once again the brutality and darkness which define black metal and the light that goes with melodic and symphonic metal. Still with D.M as a singer by his side, Nicolas Muller wrote once again an hour of aggressive and melancholic music where piano parts, orchestral parts and razor-sharp guitar riffs come together. Extreme metal is once again brought together with baroque and epic melodies from the symphonic world, topped by D.M’s ever raging and possessed vocals.
Dealing with themes such as light, religion, death or where men belong in the world, “Antumbra” features 11 varied and powerful symphonic black/death songs and will take the shape of a 3-panel digipak. It was recorded in early 2016 and then mixed/mastered during summer 2016 by Frederic Gervais at Henosis Studios. Artwork by Nicolas Muller.
