Volven Empyrium

We are incredibly happy to announce that EMPYRIUM, the most renowned Prophecy act ever, has decided to reunite and to record new music! Here's the official statement of Schwadorf on the reunion: "Since the rumours start to spread we think it's about time to make this official: EMPYRIUM is alive again! Our first new sign of life will be the song 'The Days Before The Fall' on the Prophecy Prod. compilation 'Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings' but we have plans for more! The spirit is back and it really feels right to us to start writing songs with EMPYRIUM again. We are not in a rush though so don't expect a full lenght today or tomorrow but we have the patience and faith to make this new songs outstanding and unique. Just as EMPYRIUM ever was...."

Tal vez o auge de bandas últimamente do tipo de Alcest, Les Discrets, Amesoeurs, Agalloch (que ainda que do tempo de Empyrium, parece pasar por un bon momento de popularidade nos últimos anos), Wolves in the Throne Room, etc. que fan unha especie de "melancholic dark-black metal" ou incluso como oín chamar aos máis "modernillos", "shoegaze black", volven á actividade Empyrium, unha das míticas formacións de culto que se desfixeran xa fai uns anos, publicando o seu último traballo "Weiland" no 2002.
A pregunta para mín é clara: ¿farán o estilo dos primeiros discos, aquel dark-doom-folk-black metal, ou retomarán o dark-neofolk-ambient de cuidadas guitarras acústicas, piano e violín dos últimos traballos? Sexa como sexa, será interesante volvelos a oír.
