Norwegian metal band OCTAVIA SPERATI has issued the following update:
"We are proud to announce that OCTAVIA's new album, entitled 'Grace Submerged', will be released via Candlelight Records in May. There will be two release dates; one to coincide with the bands release party in Bergen on the 16th of May (actual Norwegian release date is the 10th of May) and the other for the rest of Europe is May 21st. The Japanese and North American dates are still to be confirmed."
"Grace Submerged" track listing:
01. Provenance of Hate
03. Guilty Am I
04. Don't Believe a Word
05. As Fire Swept Clean the Earth
07. Going North
08. ...and Then the World Froze
09. The Final Rest
"Two of the songs are originally from our first EP, called 'Guilty', released in 2002," the group previously stated. "This EP was released by OCTAVIA, and in a very limited edition. We really liked the songs then, and have now rearranged them for a new birth. The new versions kick ass and we can't wait to get this stuff out!"
OCTAVIA SPERATI will film the video for its new song "Moonlit" on March 9-11 with director Tommy Næss, who has previously worked with SAHG, AUDREY HORNE, I and GORGOROTH, among others.
OCTAVIA SPERATI recorded the new CD with producers Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED, ex-AUDREY HORNE) and Arve Isdal (I, ENSLAVED and AUDREY HORNE), who previously worked with the group on their "Winter Enclosure" debut.
Formed in 2000, OCTAVIA SPERATI's current lineup includes singer Silje Wergeland, bassist Trine C. Johansen, guitarists Gyri S. Losnegaard and Bodil Myklebust, keyboardist Tone Midtgaard and drummer Ivar Alver.
