The Skinny: “Feathers Under My Skin” is the first song to be revealed from Ephel Duath’s highly anticipated new album, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness, due for release on November 19th in Europe and November 26th in North America via Agonia Records. The song, featuring a guest appearance by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal), can be listened to just below.

Ignited by commitment and passion, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, and a strong statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, Ephel Duath takes an uncompromising will to experiment, to a whole new level of intensity.

“This album holds together all that Ephel Duath’s music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further,” comments Davide Tiso. “Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest.”

Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness includes a unique line-up of: Marco Minnemann (Kreator, Necrophagist, Joe Satriani) behind the drums, Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass, lead singer Karyn Crisis (Crisis, Karyn Crisis Band) along with the founder, guitarist and songwriter Davide Tiso. The album was produced by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Studios, NY.
