Just over a month after the former members of the now-defunct DRAUGR announced that they had formed SELVANS, a musical project born to recreate, through music, lyrics and aesthetics,  the mysticism and the folklore of the different ethnic groups that have dwelt in Italy throughout the ages, they are now able to announce  that the band has inked a deal with Avantgarde Music for the release of SELVANS’  debut  EP.  Titled  “Clangores Plenilunio”, the EP  is set to hit the streets in February 2015.

The lineup on “Clangores Plenilunio” includes Selvans Haruspex (Ursus Arctos of DRAUGR)  on vocals,  keyboards and traditional instruments , Sethlans Fulguriator (Mors of DRAUGR) on guitar, and DRAUGR co-founders Stolas on bass and  the late Jonny Morelli on drums.  Morelli was able to record all the drums and most of the vocals before he was tragically killed in a motor bike accident in June of last year, and the EP, which marks Morelli’s last ever appearance, is  being released in his honour,  just as the band embarks on the new path that he was so excited about and so very much looking forward to travelling together with them.

Commenting on the title and the decision to sign with Avantgarde,  Selvans Haruspex had this to say: “The Italian translation of the Latin expression  “Clangores Plenilunio”, hides a meaning linked to the memory of Jonny  which is very important to all of us, to what was, and what will be.   As fans of many of the label’s releases, we can say that we wore out quite a few of them through repeated listenings, and therefore the fact that Avantgarde’s Roberto Mammarella was interested in working with SELVANS  was a great honour for us.  The spirit of Avantgarde is a perfect match for both our music and the concepts we are expressing through it, and knowing that Jonny would have been proud of such a collaboration is by far the greatest satisfaction for us”.

SELVANS recently debuted a digital single edit of “Lupercale”,  a track that will appear on the EP in its full version  which runs to over  9 minutes in length.   “Lupercale”, is available direct from the band at https://selvans.bandcamp.com/track/lupercale-single-edit and can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at https://soundcloud.com/templeofselvans/lupercale-edit  or on YouTube at http://youtu.be/D8Zghhn-RIw
