First album of Opera IX in 7 years!
With Strix Maledicte In Aeternum, Opera IX wants to analyze all those visions that came from the darkest times of humanity, the medieval ages. Spirit of witchcraft and darkness is present among the songs, giving the whole a less epic touch, but much more symphonic, direct and agonizing, making this album a lustful journey throughout the deepest and most macabre desires of man.
Cover artwork by renowned artist Kris Vervimp (Enthroned, Marduk); Mastered at Necromorbus Studio in Sweden by Tore Stjerna (Destroyer 666, Watain); First videoclip promoting this album is to be seen here:
