This marks ESCARNIUM's first new music since Interitus in 2016! The release, entitled Through the Depths of the 12th Gate, while only 2 songs, it's a firm announcement that the band are alive and well and have bigger plans to come.
Speaking about the EP, mainman Victor Elian shares,
"The delay to release something new is mostly due to my moving to from Brazil to Germany. Since the rest of the band members at the time stayed in Brazil, and I had to adapt to the new country, the composition process got a lot harder and slower. Besides that, we spent some time harvesting what we planted with the Interitus album. We had a few tours between 2016 and 2018, and we were supposed to record and release a new album in 2020. Around the same time we were planning a tour in Brazil with Goath (GER), but Covid got in the way and everything got canceled..."
He continues by elaborating on some of the inspiration for the song, Through the Depths of the 12th Gate,
"The riffs for this song were written by me between 2016 and 2017 and Nestor Carrera (Escarnium, Rotborn) worked his magic on the drums from Brazil. Since we were not able to release any material in 2020 as mentioned above, we figured it would be nice to release a single...
