Shambless /ex-Shambles are created in Bulgaria, back in 1998 by Pavel Rekarski and Arvells Elfaros as an atmospheric-medieval death metal band in the vein of early Amorphis, Haggard and even Summoning. However, after some years of huge concert activity on the territory of Bulgaria, Shambless gained a cult status and in year of 2003 the first album Omnipotentia was released via Discord Records. Nowadays Shambless is transformed into a one-man project with Arvells playing all the instruments. The whole project is deeply connected with a strong elfish concept- the songs depict an ancient elfish world called "The Wet Lands" and are sung in an elfish language called "Tura Ieagan" (means "Far Away") .On the other hand Arvells Elfaros believes that he himself is an elf and according to his believes now we are living in the Fifth Age Of The World-the age of the awakening, a time when the elves will return to our sick world. And if Omnipotentia was just the beginning, the new Shambless album represents the music that will awake all elves from their slumber…And who knows if you find yourself deeply involved into Shambless music, maybe you are an elf too…"Apkas Itulia" is dedicated to all of those who respect the mighty power of Mother Nature, who even once have felt the mountains breeze, and even once have seen the shadows of the forests…
