This is the third and final track to made available from the upcoming third full-length album and first release on the Canadian label Hypnotic Dirge Records also known for acts such as netra, Ekove Efrits, stroszek, Subterranean Disposition, and The Foetal Mind. The “Faces of Insanity” album is scheduled to be released in early July and will be available worldwide. The main concept of the album is to tell the story of an individual suffering from a mental disease.
Epitimia is a three-piece atmospheric black metal, post-rock influenced band from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Epitimia (from Greek ἐπιτιμία – penance) is to be understood as an interdiction which, according to Church canons, the priest as a spiritual physician may apply in certain cases in order to treat the moral diseases of his spiritual children. But for the members of the band it has a little different meaning. Epitimia – is an individualistic way to control the human spirit through self-improvement and self-contemplation.
Band members say: “With the every new album we try to improve the sound quality, to add new fresh tunes to our music, to improvise with the atmosphere. In our music we do like quotation from classical masterpieces, so if you are careful listener, you will find many interesting bright moments in our works”.
