Lotus Thief - New Album Detailed, Share Teaser


Lotus Thief are all set to unleash their third full-length offering, entitled Oresteia. It will be released by Prophecy Productions on January 10th, 2020. Oresteia was recorded in California, mixed and mastered at The Thousand Caves in NYC. Pre-sale is available at this location.

Statement from the group: "Three years ago, we decided to write an album that, while still focused on the words of the ancients, would be different in concept than our previous releases: it would tell a story.

"What began as a 3-song EP rapidly expanded into a full-length, new in concept and execution, welcoming Tal R'eb (guitar, vox, synth), Kore (drums, violins), Romthulus (guitar, vox) and Ascalaphus (harsh vox). Recorded in California, mixed and mastered at The Thousand Caves in NYC, we give you one of the world's oldest tragedies, a tale ahead of its time (5th century BC) that rails into the nature of human violence and law, titled Oresteia.

"Oresteia will be released in LP (both red & black vinyl), CD and (!) an incredibly beautiful CD/Artbook featuring the work of Irrwisch and introducing a former student of mine, graphic artist Gabriella Gatsbi. The artbooks will go into the history of Aeschylus' "The Oresteia" as a performative work along with the words of Lotus Thief's new, still-expanding lineup of players featured on this and the next three forthcoming releases that will follow Oresteia in the 2020's.

"Along with Oresteia, Prophecy Productions will be re-issuing our first release Rervm, in both CD and Artbook formats, telling the story of "De Rerum Natura" and story of the album itself. More on both artbooks to come.

"We would like to thank Prophecy Productions, the LT family surrounding our players, and our Listeners, who have inspired us to no end."
