We're happy to announce the next release on SIGE records, the debut full length from our friends Ides of Gemini. The LP will be released on May 15th via SIGE, and the CD version on Neurot Recordings around the same time. Here's a snippet about Ides of Gemini from their press release about the forthcoming album:
"The nine songs on Constantinople evince the light and shade of the IDES dynamic: the vicious and the atmospheric mingling in a spacious panorama of high white ether. Respected metal journalist Etan Rosenbloom described it best on MetalSucks.net: “Guitarist J. Bennett lays down imperial metal riffs swathed in so much reverb that they seem isolated from the rest of the world. Bassist/vocalist Sera Timms layers her affectless voice in ghostly counterpoint, turning tales of spiritual discord into disturbing lullabies…If something seems missing from Ides Of Gemini’s sound, that’s exactly the point. Their accretion of small musical gestures inverts metal’s normal use of space. They imply terror without ever exposing it. Each song is an accumulation of outlines, a sort of sonic daguerreotype.”
