about

Ignited by commitment and passion, "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness" is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock: a career defining statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, Ephel Duath takes their uncompromising will to experiment to a whole new level of intensity.

“Ephel Duath exists in its own realm as ever, uprooting expectations just as its logical madness begins to make sense” - NPR Music.

“Unsurprisingly, they’ve never sounded so dizzyingly off-kilter, magnificently hypnotic, and massively intimidating” - Metal Sucks.

"I wanted this album to be a strong statement" - comments Davide Tiso. "And I believe we achieved that. Every time I put together a release for Ephel Duath, I deal with it as if it was our last. Would I be OK to let this album be the band's last shout? Yes, I definitely would. I compose music to primarily please myself; doing it puts my mind in a very specific place, a spot where I feel fitting-in much, much better than in everyday life. Playing my guitar for Ephel Duath I get the peace and the release I need to keep myself going. I'm an avid metal listener but when I play for Ephel Duath I don't feel the need to bring my music to fit any parameters, at the same time I don't put any efforts whatsoever to sound different: I just let go and navigate."

"Songs are coming out effortlessly and quicker the older I get, and I believe that with this new album I reached the highest level of intensity of my entire musical career" - continues Davide. "Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest."

The line-up featuresTiso on guitars, Karyn Crisis on vocals, Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Kreator, Necorphagist) on drums and Bryan Beller (The Aristocrats, Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass.

Vocals & guitars recorded at Mana Recording Studio by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal / ex-Morbid Angel). Mastered at West West Side Music by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge).
