FINALLY REISSUED ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ITALIANEPIC BLACK METAL ALBUM OF ‘90sYear 1999:
Europe was taken by storm by black metal, the leading force in extreme music. Actually, black metal has been mutating its primary grim and satanic force since the mid-90s and words such as symphonic, epic and melodic started appearing in the bands' descriptions.
Unexpectedly from Italy came a force capable of uniting all these inputs: in summer, under the Last Episode inprint, Stormlord released their debut album "Supreme Art Of War". The eight tracks of the record united the symphonism of bands such as Dimmu Borgir or Bal-Sagoth to melodies coming from epic and power metal and the record became a hot-topic in the European press in a couple of months.In songs such as "Where My Spirit Forever Shall Be" or "War (The Supreme Art)" Stormlord are able to create solid fantasy-themed hymns for an audience eager to experience sensations akin to Cradle Of Filth, Graveworm and Summoning, with lyrics bathed in fantasy worlds and myths.
Recorded and produced at the soon-to-be-famous Temple Of Noise Studios in Rome by Christian Ice and with a graphic layout assembled by Fabban (Aborym), "Supreme Art Of War" has been reissued for the very first time on cd, vinyl (regular and limited), cassette and different boxsets.
