A couple of years since last featured – ECNEPHIAS have a noticeably sharper focus and intent resulting in material that is more focused allowing them to use their flamboyance to add gravity to the output rather than, as was the case previously, where the flair provided theatrical expression.

The antepenultimate of the nine tracks is Quimbanda.

The Sad Wonder of the Sun – Ecnephias is available on iTunes.*

A band who first featured well over seven years ago still retain their mysterious soundtrack and despite having one fewer players seem to have become ever darker over the years as their output coats the listener in its spectral translucence.

From the forthcoming album, the first of the eight tracks, Alone With The Stars is best engaged in a shrouding crematorium early morning fog as the ghostly four and a half minutes of mesmerising soundscape spins its gossamer threads around the audience.

Secret Fires – Ofeliadorme is available on iTunes.*
