Opera IX - The Gospel (CD)
Opera IX have been true initiators of Italian occult black metal since the early 90s
The Gospel is a concept album focused on the Italian myth of "Aradia And The Gospel Of The Witches", written by Charles Godfrey Leland and containing what he believed was the religious text of a group of pagan witches in Tuscany, Italy, documenting their beliefs and rituals.
The album includes nine masterfully composed tracks with sounds that represent a bit of a "return to the past" in terms of dark, mystical and occult atmospheres and sees the inclusion of a new witch on vocals (Dipsas Dianaria) that forges with its powerful and ritual voice every track keeping intact the Opera IX trademark in years.
