After seven years of relative silence, FROSTMOON ECLIPSE guitarist CLAUDIO ALCARA is preparing to release a new album from his  solo dark folk/acoustic project STROSZEK.

Titled “About All the Bad Days in the World”, the album is expected to hit the streets in late 2019 on Hypnotic Dirge Records, who describe the album thus:

STROSZEK is a project bringing forth various elements of neo-folk, goth rock, trip-hop and western music blending together seemingly irreconcilable sounds to craft something that is all about feeling and introspection. Contemplation, melancholy, and stories about life are at the forefront of the vibe in STROSZEK’s music. “About All The Bad Days In The World” is an evolution in STROSZEK’s sound, keeping the same aura, but also throwing in some new elements that may surprise old listeners.

 In the meantime, Alcara has given us a taste of what to expect from STROSZEK’s fourth full-length album with the release of a video for the track “The Beast Who Dreams of Man”.  Written by Luca Olivieri and directed by Sara Battolla, the video, which stars Lorenzo De Carlo, can be seen at https://youtu.be/ZxupQA-aeYc

Whilst probably best known for his work as guitarist for FROSTMOON ECLIPSE, one of Italy’s longest-established Black Metal bands,  STROSZEK is a much more introspective vehicle in which Alcara also takes the lead on vocals, inviting the listener on an intimate journey through his life, replacing the distinctive heavy riffs with a much more haunting style, which a guitarist of his calibre is able to do with consummate ease.

Although Alcara may have not been active in the studio with STROSZEK for an extended period, he has been performing his acoustic live sets and making guest appearances regularly, including four editions of the TOWNES VAN ZAND Tribute Festival, and a couple of times at the Tera Salvaria Fest, which is held by torchlight in the Ladin forests.  He has opened twice for 40 WATT SUN during their Italian tour, as well as for HUGO RACE, MATT ELLIOT, MARK SULTAN and DAGGER MOTH, amongst others,  and has appeared with friends such as RICHARD LINDGREN and BOCEPHUS KING.

With their debut full-length album “Plague of Plagues”  having been released at the beginning of the year on Drakkar Productions, and with work progressing steadily on the follow up, Black Metallers ENEPSIGOS have inked a two -album deal with Osmose Productions.

ENEPSIGOS was formed in the summer of 2016 by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the founder and frontman of NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR, who, like ENEPSIGOS, are all relatively new bands,  but whose lineups are composed of hugely experienced musicians, drawn from some of the best known exponents of Black Metal.  For ENEPSIGOS, V.I.T.H.R has been able to call on the services of former SARKOM guitarist Straff and drummer Thorns,  known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA amongst others.

With its roots firmly entrenched in the traditions of early Black Metal, ENEPSIGOS’ music is dark and brutal, with ritualistic undertones,  and has been described in the press as having a “vicious intensity”.  The, as yet to be titled, follow up to “Plague of Plagues”, whose drums have already been recorded, promises more of the same darkness.

Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, V.I.T.H.R had this to say:  “It was a natural progression to a bigger label who could take us further along the road.  I already knew how Osmose worked, because NORDJEVEL is signed with them, and it has been a close collaboration, with everyone having an input and exchanging ideas.  It’s a very productive way to work as far as I’m concerned”.

Nobody knows who the Norwegian vocalist behind some of the most talked about new Black and Extreme Metal bands to emerge over the last year is, but one thing is sure, he has an uncanny knack of being able to bring together talented musicians from well known, established bands, and give them the impetus to  create new projects. Projects that have allowed the individual musicians to bring their experience and different disciplines together to form bands that, whilst helmed by the same individual, are totally different one from the other.  Furthermore, in a saturated market, they are bands that  get snapped up by labels in very short order.

With NORDJEVEL and SVARTELDER having already released critically acclaimed albums on Osmose Productions and Dusktone respectively, and with DOEDSVANGR currently considering various recording offers, ENEPSIGOS,  the latest project of this shadowy individual,  has attracted interest from labels purely on the strength of two raw demo tracks, and the band has just agreed a deal with the French label Drakkar Productions for the release of their debut album.

Having eschewed his stage name of Doedsadmiral, in favour of V.I.T.H.R, for his work with ENEPSIGOS, the mysterious vocalist has called upon the talents of fellow countryman and former SARKOM guitarist Straff and Italian drummer Thorns known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA, to name but a few.  Together they have created a band that is dark and brutal, and whose roots in the traditions of early Black Metal are unmistakable.

Because it’s easy to talk about what a band is going to sound  like, but in reality it’s impossible for fans to form any kind of idea about a band without actually hearing any music, ENEPSIGOS have uploaded a ROUGH STUDIO MIX of the title track from their upcoming album “Plague of Plagues” and it can be heard below and at https://soundcloud.com/enepsigos-official/plague-of-plagues
