Italian symphonic black metallers Stormlord have revealed details about their upcoming new album entitled Hesperia. The band will enter the studio in the autumn to record the follow-up to 2008's Mare Nostrum.

The band posted the following on their Facebook page: "Legions of the Storm, first of all, we want to show you our deepest gratitude for having so much patience. It's been a while since our last update and now we're ready to unveil some details about our next album."

"In the last years we left behind our live activity in order to focus more on the songwriting and to develop the synergy of the new line-up: now we're pleased to announce that all the material has been written while the preproduction process and the lyrics writing are on their way. We're very proud of how the new stuff sounds and we firmly believe that these will be the best songs of our career, so far: those who enjoyed the epic and Mediterranean feeling of Mare Nostrum (2008) and the dynamic flavour of Supreme Art Of War (1999) will not be disappointed, that's a promise! As usual, we are trying to push our sound one step forward, remaining loyal to the roots of our music but dealing with new influences and different styles too. In three worlds: Extreme Epic Metal."

"The title of the new album will be Hesperia (a Greek/Latin word that stands for 'land of the sunset' or 'Western land', the name whereby ancient Greeks called Italy), and it will be a concept album, the first of our career, inspired by the 'Aeneid', the Latin epic poem written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC."

"We will enter the Outer Sound Studios (Novembre, Necrodeath, The Foreshadowing, Klimt 1918, etc.), of Rome during this autumn and, once again, we'll be working with Giuseppe Orlando, the sound engineer that handled the recordings of almost all of our past records. Hear you soon and, like the characters of 'Game Of Thrones' would say: brace yourself, Storm is coming!"

Great (unknown!) band from Italy.
If you're into symphonic metal somehow, don't miss their previous albums.

Yea Im with Ravenking, Mare Nostrum had some high moments but overall the band simply isnt that talented. Ill still check this out in hopes of a few good tracks tho.

Mare Nostrum is actually only album by them that I listen to REGULARLY... I liked every song on it... and an album based on Aeneid, well, I hope it is good so it encourages me to pick the book from my shelf and read it finally lol
