Recorded between Darkest Era’s recording session of “Severance” and Spring 2015, “Gods and Origins” is a resume of a decade of the band’s existence.
Yes, over 10 years have passed since guitarists Ade Mulgrew and Sarah Weighell, two school-mates with a passion for Metal started writing music together; dusty roads have been walked, cold times have been faced, but the band of their dreams still stands tall and fiery!

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC to release DARK QUARTERER’s “Ithaca” on vinyl

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is proud to announce the release of DARK QUARTERER’s new album “Ithaca” on vinyl!

CRUZ528 cover600

“Ithaca” has been originally released April 25 on compact discs by Metal on Metal Records, receiving a warm feedback from the fans.

“Ithaca” is a concept album inspired by the 1911’s poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used  Odysseus’s travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life; the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it’s a mix of ’80s epic heavy metal with ’70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom.

With a specific, suitable mastering for vinyl, the release includes two exclusive 2010-live bonus tracks which have been explicitly chosen by the band for its quality and uniqueness. The first is a version of band’s own classic “War Tears”;  the peculiarity of this version  is that is sung in Italian, making the interpretation of singer Gianni Nepi  particularly passionate.
The second bonus  is the long, touching piece “Deep Wake” another song that shows Dark Quarterer’s incredible skills.
Besides over 70 minutes of stellar, progressive metal music, this deluxe DOUBLE LP GATEFOLD EDITION will also include a 4-page booklet  with lyrics and a download-card.

Estimated release-date is September 19.

1. The Path of Life
