||News coming from the Ephel Duath camp confirm that the band is currently working on a new album and follow-up to Through My Dog's Eyes released back in 2009. The new album has been tentatively penned for a spring 2013 release.
Band vocalist and guitarist Davide Tiso posted the following update: "The follow up to On Death And Cosmos is about to be completed and it will introduce a line-up change in the rhythmic section. All bass parts have already been recorded by Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, Dethklok, James LaBrie). Marco Minnemann returns playing drums for Ephel Duath bringing the creative relationship between drums and guitars to a dynamism never reached before by the band.
Ephel Duath's new album is the musical statement I wish this band will be remembered for. All I've learned or not learned musically, all I've always wanted my lyrics to be, live and breathe in these eight new songs. This album holds together all that Ephel Duath's music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further. I feel that a whole new expressive world is opening up to me and this band. My intent is to blindly follow this recent path and to bring Ephel Duath to higher and higher levels of intensity, riff after riff, song after song, with patience and obstinacy, an open heart and dedication.
In January Karyn and I will enter Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with Erik Rutan to record guitars and vocals and to mix the album. Tentative release period is Spring 2013. In the meantime I promise to keep you posted."
