"Parthenope" has been recorded, mixed and mastered at 6th Cellar Studio in Roma by Stefano Morabito (FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, HOUR OF PENANCE) and the orchestral version has been handled by maestro Riccardo Studer (STORMLORD) who has commented "
The orchestral scoring for this album was a long and intense process, but extremely rewarding. Giulian and I worked out how the music should sound to create the right atmospheres and setting according to Parthenope’s concept and lyrics. The result was a truly massive and majestic orchestral texture, with full instrumental ensemble and the addition of the parthenopean traditional folk instruments, the band’s unique trademark. It was a really exciting challenge, brace yourselves …”
The epic black metal atmospheres, strongly influenced by the world famous “canzone napoletana”, and the sound of traditional folk instruments melt with majestic orchestrals and evocative lyrics in native language, express the concept of the band at its best.
All the emotional charge of such profound culture finds full expression in this SCUORN' debut album and track after track will lead you on an epic journey through dreams, successes, struggles and failures of mankind.
