SELVANS : a concept record as a split

“Sun and moon, the perfect opposites.  A dualism from which every couples of opposites of the known universe springs. A duality observed and widely studied, sung and represented in several ways during past eras. The aim of this Opus in four acts is to give another interpretation of this dichotomy, permeated by the typical elements which characterize our projects: different from each other for their variety but at the same time similar and joined an unanimous evocation of the past"
I. Intro/ SOL II. Selvans – Pater Surgens  III. Downfall of Nur – Mater Universi IV. Outro/ LUNA

Downfall of Nur and Selvans, together as one. This is not just another split album, but a concept album composed and recorded by both bands, also performing on each other's tracks.

I'm the waterghost's son

SERVAN debut album for 2017

The debut album by SERVAN is entitled "Tales of the Forest" and it is now planned to be released in 2017.

SERVAN confessed me the following : The album title will be “Tales of the Forest” because the themes of the album deal with nature and the mythological creatures such as goblins, trolls and servan life. The album artwork will follow the story of the man exploring the forest from his happiness to his madness : in front is very bright, and the back cover shows the end within dark and dramatic tones. The most important designs of the pack, the front cover and the back, contain many so called “easter eggs”, a multitude of hidden elements representing each track of the album and also a tribute to “The Lord of the Rings”: it is up to you find those objects and connect them to the right track.


SUN AND MOON DANCE shared one demo song titled "Fae" (as in Cattle or livestock and not as Faeries).

"This is my first time experimenting with vocalization in my music", he said and I think he did great, don't you think ? :)
