The Italian band SIMULACRO, supported by Third I Rex, will be releasing its new full-length album in September this year.
The new opus, will see the return of the Sardinian band following the previous work "Fall of the Last Idol" back in 2013. It will be officially released just six months after the band's new EP "SuperEgo" (currently available on digital through the band's bandcamp page), a mini album which has highlighted the return of the band to the scene. SIMULACRO already collected real positive feedbacks at the time of the first LP, both in Italy and abroad.
SIMULACRO have always developed interesting concept albums. As well with this new work, they aimed to create something unique in order to push their music over the classic black metal roots of the band.
Anamnesi, the band's drummer and multitalented musicians already part of important Sardinian and Italian acts, has explained some of the ideas used in the band's new album:
"The album's atmospheres mainly arise from ideas of introspection, meditation, and self-analysis. We use these ideas to better understand our place in this world, and our own individual spirituality. As a result of this introspection we try to foresee what we become when we let the events, our passions or mere conformism dictate our behaviour; what happens when we don't strive for control of our actions and thoughts. these are all nefarious visions, that bring no solace. Yet, there's hope in facing the lethargy afflicting the soul.
The spiritual quest for truth, so personal, intimate and sacred, becomes one with life. We need to seek it far from light and from external influences so that our senses won't be overwhelmed by excessive information."
