New addition to Witching Hour Productions catalogue is Non Opus Dei, originating from Olsztyn, one of the most interesting acts in avant-garde black metal genre. Several weeks ago band put final touches to their first new album in three years.
Recording session started in Bat Studio in Olsztyn where drums were recorded under supervision of Szymon Czech (Nyia, Third Degree) who produced the whole album. Later the band moved to his private studio to record guitar tracks. They finished work at Studio X recording bass and vocals, and returned to Szymon’s studio for mix and mastering. Album was entitled "Eternal Circle" and will hit the stores in September 2010.
"Eternal Circle" is 30 minutes of fast, unique, avant-garde black metal. On their Myspace page ( www.myspace.com/nonopusdeipoland ) you can already listen to the first song entitled "The Prisoner Of The Worlds". On the lyrical side, the concept will be based on the theory of never-ending cycle which cannot be broken. The same cycle that Nietzsche was told by his Demon.
Current Non Opus Dei line-up is: Klimorh (guitar, vocals, lyrics), Gonzo (drums), Budda (guitar), Rochu (drums)
The band comments on new label and new album: "Our first album for Witching Hour will be underlining band’s legacy, and following the path once chosen. We knew exactly what we want to achieve and how to create such extremity as "Eternal Circle". Soon after the beginning of composing we knew there will be no place for compromise. Ultrafast drums parts set on the Eternal Circle on its path. However this in not only blast-beats based fast black metal. We focused on the melodic aspect, and most of all on intriguing but consistent arrangements, on guitars playing unusual parts in interesting harmonies… "Eternal Circle" is also the summary of our own ideology and obsession on the concept of never-ending cycle."
