Lilitu - Update From Band

Founding member Derek Bonner has issued some updates on the band's myspace blog.

Lilitu is working on a new album which will re-define and expand the band's original sound. Combining elements of traditional European folk, neo-classical, progressive rock, experimental-avant garde and old-school black metal, the primary influence for the upcoming gem stems from the Romanian philosopher, E. M. Cioran. The album is tentatively titled, "Directions For Decomposition: Variations On Death" and will be completed by Summer 2008.

Last December the band has announced a new lineup with all previous members no longer in the band except for Bonner and the addition of J. Blake S. from Georgia based Black Metal band Hills of Sefiroth. The band will continue as a two piece with founding member Henry Derek Bonner. With the new lineup the band intends to change its sound to rawer roots; adding many influences of raw, cold Norwegian Black Metal, and earthen folk acoustics.

I met Derek ages ago at my first concert back in 2004. I actually have their "The Delores Lesion" album and it's pretty solid.

Can't wait for their new album!
The Delores Lesion was amazing IMO, I have high hopes for the next one...

The Dolores Lesion was indeed solid, still this "all new line-up" thing doesn't sound too good. Infact it sound straight from Spinal Tap, with the listing of every music genre know to man as influence. I'll keep an eye out.

Derek started up another band after Lilitu named Blood Promise and I tried out on bass. They wanted me to have the job but I ended up having to move to Charleston, SC (they're based in Atlanta, GA). I don't know if Blood Promise still exists considering Lilitu is putting out another record. Maybe it's just a side thing for him.
