“POSEIDON” is the eponymous collaboration album between Argento, Azoth (both SPITE EXTREME WING, IANVA) and Algol (HIEMS, FORGOTTEN TOMB, KIRLIAN CAMERA).
The album will be released on February 28, 2023 on digital and CD + notebook edition including postcards.
POSEIDON started to take shape in 2006 when Argento and Algol were visiting Le Tombe beach on the southwest side of the island of Elba.
On that rugged and uncontaminated shore made of black serpentine stones blending into the dark abyss of the night, near the site of ancient Etruscan tombs, they both shared the ambition of being able to replicate the hypnotic poetry of the Sea, mystically uniting Sky and Earth with its repetitive yet ever-changing flow of music.
And just like waves, Poseidon’s music moves, wanders and becomes one with the singing Sea, flowing effortlessly, and blending beneath the underwater currents of its stream a unique mix of Acoustic Black Metal, Folk Music, Psychedelic Rock and Avantgarde.
POSEIDON’s music is vastly improvised: written and recorded during ritualistic night sessions, using a vast range of unorthodox mediums and instruments such as mellotron, tube radio and various folkloristic frame drums.
A phenomenally multi-layered work, coming from the depth of the ocean like a message in a bottle containing a sacred ritual spelled in ancient tongues, and aimed at those souls that are curious and adventurous enough to go out to sea, leaving the land behind.
The CD edition comes with a special notebook written through asystematic narrative path with Alessia Brunello, and inspired by “Burn After - A performance Book” by Elenia Depedro.
