On August the 6th 2013 the German label Outline Rekordz will release, in an elegant digipack format, "Martyr Lucifer's Shards" an album that collects the trilogy of EPs recently produced by Martyr Lucifer. The collection includes 3 different EPs of the artist's unreleased material, which differ in terms of sound and atmosphere, but are united by the melancholy of Martyr Lucifer's dark soul. This work raises points of interest not only from a musical point of view, but also from the occult and symbolic ones - the artist has accustomed us, since his solo debut, to complete works that offer not only sound, but also a complete artwork with puzzles to discover and interpret. And "Shards" is no exception.
The 3 EPs saw the partecipation of members of Hortus Animae, as well as Simone Mularoni and Dario Ciccioni of Empyrios, Antarktica of Darkend and Adrian Erlandsson of Paradise Lost. To whet the listener's attention even more, here is the lyric video for "A Lesson in Murder" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_PlCMUJxUs, the single that precedes of 2 weeks the release of the album, available in preorder until August the 6th via http://martyrlucifer.bigcartel.com/.
Martyr Lucifer has been recording a trilogy of EPs that shows three different, separated and amplified, sides of his sound, now the process reached its end and finally all the pieces come together. Shard One, Two and Three are set to be released on July the 29th 2013 via Outlinerecordz. The first edition gathers all the Shards in an elegant digipack format, while a vinyl edition with bonus material is scheduled for within the end of the year. The EPs have been recorded at Domination Studio and feature Simone Mularoni and Dario Ciccioni (empYrios), Antarktica (Darkend) and Adrian Erlandsson (At the Gates, Paradise Lost) among others.
