GHOSTS OF ATLANTIS (UK) featuring Devilment member: Prog/Symphonic Blackened Death Metal
Black Lion Records presents the debut album, 220.127.116.11, of Ghosts of Atlantis, out March 26th on CD, Boxset, and digital formats; vinyls will be issued later this year.
Hailing from deepest, darkest Suffolk, symphonic/progressive extreme metallers Ghosts Of Atlantis (GOA) carries a wealth of experience and professionalism, featuring present and past members of Devilment, Failed Humanity, The Conflict Within, and Cold Lazarus. The band members involved have been part of labels like Nuclear Blast and Candlelight Records and endorsed by Caparison Guitars, Kemper Amps, Bare Knuckle Pickups, and Seymour Duncan. All the members have been in various bands for the last 09 years and appeared on fests such as Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, Grasspop, Bloodstock, and Hammerfest.
Like both Cradle Of Filth and Devilment before it, the band continues the tradition and staple of the Witch County trademark sound, encompassing all that is dark, brooding, and macabre. In addition, the band takes different singing approaches, from poetic spoken word elements, full choirs, and memorable choruses to guttural destruction carried forth through the main vocals.
On the debut album, 18.104.22.168, GOA builds the lore around the mythology of ancient Greece and the lost city of Atlantis while narrating their own story, weaving historical findings and fantasy storytelling into one epic journey. The lore contains relevance to both this world and the mythological world of Atlantis. There is a valid reason behind the title, 22.214.171.124. However, the band would like the listeners to try and work out the relevance.
