Fresh from inking a deal with Avantgarde Music, Black-Folk Metallers SELVANS have today revealed details of the bands first release on the label.  Due to hit the streets on the 13th of February, the release will be a five-track EP entitled “Clangores Plenilunio”, which will serve as a tribute to the band’s drummer, the late Jonny Morelli ,who was killed in June of last year shortly after finishing recording the drums and part of the vocals for the EP.   The release date has been specifically chosen as the 13th of February as this date marks the start of the ancient Lupercalia Festival.

As a lead up to the release, SELVANS have posted a video teaser of the title track “Clangores Plenilunio”,  a song that could almost be called a duet as the vocals are handled party by Jonny and partly by Selvans Haruspex, who explains the concept behind the song: “Jonny and I worked closely together  when it came to deciding on the lyrical theme for the song, and we did a lot of research on the Sibyl’s Cave, which, legend has it, is located in the Marche region of central Italy.  The fascination of this place, and the legends associated with it,  was a great inspiration to us and we had planned to use the folklore surrounding it in several SELVANS pieces in the future.   Although Jonny died before he could finish parts of the text, I completed them,  and whilst  “Clangores Plenilunio” is the first piece that features the Appennine Sybil, it definitely won’t be the last”.   The video teaser can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/rZwpCXkO_fI

 

SELVANS was formed following the demise of DRAUGR, and, through music, lyrics and aesthetics,  the band aims to recreate the mysticism and the folklore that the different ethnic  inhabitants of  Italy throughout the ages left behind them.  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  Jonny Morelli on drums.  Recording took place at both  the Faunalia Studio and and Soluzioni Audio, and included is a cover of “… In the Woods” from the “Heart of Ages” album by Norway’s IN THE WOODS.  Track listing for “Clangores Plenilunio” as follows.

1. Lupercale
2. Clangores Plenilunio
3. Prologue
4. … In the Woods
5. Epilogue

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 below and on the band’s SoundCloud page at https://soundcloud.com/templeofselvans/lupercale-edit  or on YouTube at http://youtu.be/D8Zghhn-RIw
