After several tours and shows across the 4 big continents from Usa to Europe, from South Africa to China, The Etruscan Priests are becoming one of the most impressive extreme bands made in Italy.
Born in 2009, Voltumna isn’t your classic extreme metal band. Their sound finds its roots in the old-school death/black metal tradition and the leading theme of their music makes them unique and original indeed. In fact, listening to their songs, will send you back in time to the Etruscan civilization and their myths. The release of their first EP “Chimera” in 2011 is the starting point of their music production. Four songs, recorded at the Fear No One studio shows clearly what’s the musical direction of the band which will start an intensive national live tour following the EP release. In the summer of 2012 Voltumna go back to the Fear No One studio and the recordings of the debut album “Damnatio Sacrorum” starts, this time with Paolo Pieri (Hour Of Penance, Aborym) looking after the album production. Ten songs of pure old-school death/black metal brutality is what the album is made of! Soon the album gets licensed by the English label Cold Birth Records that will bring the band on stage throughout Europe together with Inquisition, Taake and Carpathian Forest. Once again, in 2014, the band record a new album of 12 tracks with Paolo Pieri.
“Disciplina Etrusca” gives even more emphasis on the death-black attitude of the band unique sound which sees Volutmna playing over 100 gigs all over the world in some of the most popular music festivals like MetalGate Czech DeathFest, the British Incineration Festival, the Ukrainian Carpathian Alliance, the Metal Crowd Open air in Bielorussia, a tour in South Africa with Behemoth and a summer tour in U.S. “Disciplina Etrusca”, released in 2015 by Subsound Records (artwork by Marcello Vasco), is a concept album where the songs are all thematically-linked to the Etruscan era rituality and customs. The rise of the Etruscan war machine continued for the whole 2016 with a confirmed summer tour in China and they have been already added to the line-up of the 2017 German festival Ragnarok and the Bulgarian Autumn of Souls.
In autumn the band will start the recordings of their new concept album “Dodecapoli”, which will be centered on the twelve cities of the Etruscan confederation, also this time the artwork will be supervised by Marcello Vasco. Despite their young age (in their early twenties), the Voltumna are to be considered as a name already stated in the death/black world scene as well as one of the strongest names of the national Italian metal scene.
Xoth was formed from the ashes of Seattle Epic Metal band Phalgeron. Xoth picks up where that band left off. Guitarist/Vocalist Tyler Splurgis was working on a side project with drummer Jeremy Salvo, and the transition into this band just seemed right. Second guitar master Woody Adler came into the picture when Tyler and Woody formed metal the metal cover band Medieval Eternity in Summer 2013, and he played the final Phalgeron show. It turned out they wrote really well together, so he agreed to be a founding member of Xoth. Bassist, Ben Bennett, was found at a Medival Eternity show in winter 2014, and after some talk and discovery of mutual schooling and friends, it was decided we shall jam. Their debut EP will be released this summer. Prepare to behold Xoth.
