The following is a press release from Anubi Press:
Italian Black Metallers THE SCARS IN PNEUMA (“The Scars in the Soul” – from “πνεύμα”, ancient Greek word for “breath”, “breath of life” and, in a religious context, for “spirit”, “soul”) released their debut album “The Path Of Seven Sorrows” – check it out on Bandcamp:
Musically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA provides it’s own particular black metal style, which can be defined as a mix of black metal, death metal with melodic riffing and epic passages, with a touch of doomy mood. Some bands that can be cited as inspiration are Dissection, Mgła, Be’lakor, Rotting Christ, Forgotten Tomb, Blut Aus Nord, Emperor.
Lyrically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA is all about themes such as dealing with your own demons, life’s biggest regrets, the passing of time, the beloved people we lost.
