Alghol: “Promised Virgin” is the last one EP released and the third song, talk about a black ceremony.
Blasphemy is the first song written with Eurynome at the beginning of Death Throne (just the first part). This song is very simple and not technical. The songs “Evilution Part I and II” is a concept talking about the moment where the gates shall be opened to let come the Legions to clean up the earth. Mauricio of the Brazilian black metal band “Infernal Winds” wrote the lyrics fort the Part I of “Evilution”. And “Solitude” it’s an instrumental trip that I made alone. It expresses a feeling in a particular moment.
