Aexylium - 'The Fifth Season' (video)


Οι Æxylium μας έρχονται από την Ιταλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ οκταετίας και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι: «Aexylium band was born in Varese (Italy) in 2014 by trying to combine the typical sound of traditional instruments (Flute, Violin, Bouzouki) with the modern ones of Metal music».

Αναφέρουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Eluveitie, Korpiklaani, Alestorm, Folkstone κι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν ένα ep, ένα ep κι ένα single). Ο δεύτερος φέρει τον τίτλο "Fifth Season" και "βγήκε" τον περασμένο Οκτώβριο...

Ο δίσκος των Aexylium 'The Fifth Season'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Italian symphonic folk metallers Aexylium have unleashed their video for the title track from their album "The Fifth Season" released this past October 2021 via Rockshots Records.

The title track tells through the lyrics and the music an initial restlessness, which leads to a feeling of hope and rebirth towards the end. The song also expresses doubts about the future, also considering the human impact on the planet. The video features Arianna Bellinaso as a special guest on vocals.

Mixing traditional folk instruments (Flute, Violin, Bouzouki) with the modern symphonic metal, Aexylium‘s sophomore full length follows 2018’s “Tales From This Land” (Underground Symphony Records) and their 2016 self-produced EP “The Blind Crow“.

“Tales From This Land” has had over 110k streams on Spotify along with its powerful single “Revive the Village’ placing on the top 200 metal song charts in Germany on Apple Music. Aexylium has also released fan-praised covers of Game of Thrones and Vikings main themes with reinterpreted folk metal sounds.

Since their inception in 2014, the Italian band has performed at renowned festivals in Europe such as Dumeltica International Music Festival, Montelago Celtic Festival, Malpaga Folk & Metal, Rock Inn Somma, Druidia and Strigarium along with sharing the stage with Elvenking, Wind Rose, Nervosa, Furor Gallico, Temperance and more. In August 2020, despite Covid restrictions, Aexylium was chosen by the city of Milan to perform at the historical Castello Sforzesco.

Their new album “The Fifth Season” is a concrete step towards growth and musical maturity with its offering of festive ballads, tighter riffs, advanced orchestrations and heavier dark songs that are all inspired by Norse Mythology.

The record also features guest vocals from Samuele Faulisi (Atlas Pain), Arianna Bellinaso and the members of Coro Facoltà di Musicologia Vocal Ensemble. The album was recorded at Twilight Studio by Davide Tavecchia with the artwork done by Jan Yrlund of Darkgrove Design (Manowar, Testament, Korpiklaani).»
