South African post metal band CONSTELLATIA are announcing the re-release of their acclaimed debut album ‘The Language of Limbs’ on various physical formats. The new pressings will be out on June 19 and are available for pre-ordering HERE.
‘The Language of Limbs’ was originally released on November 15, 2019 and soon after, the four piece landed a worldwide record deal with Season of Mist.
CONSTELLATIA comments: “We hope everyone is keeping safe during these unprecedented times. We are making the most of our interrupted lives by working on record number two. Today, we are thrilled to announce that pre-orders for the Season of Mist pressing of our debut album are now live, as well as a slew of new t-shirts (all designed by Rouleaux van der Merwe).”
Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, CONSTELLATIA is the collaborative vision of Gideon Lamprecht and Keenan Oakes, founders of well-known acts CROW BLACK SKY and WILDERNESSKING respectively.
‘The Language of Limbs’ is essentially a post-metal record with black metal and progressive influences, and a healthy dose of ambience and atmosphere; always deeply engaging with a flair for the romantic and nostalgic. “It is a record that came from a place of desperation; a musical outlet for the years of hardship both members endured in their personal lives.” Gideon Lamprecht comments. “It’s an album about obsession and overcoming. It’s a triumphant record.” adds Keenan Oakes.
Formed in September 2018, and enlisting the talents of a few key collaborators, CONSTELLATIA soon completed work on the beautiful and emotional ride that is ‘The Language of Limbs’. While the drums (Played by Lawrence Jaeger) and vocals were engineered by Daniel Thackwray at City Varsity, Cape Town, all other instruments were recorded by Lamprecht at his home studio in Glencairn, where he also mixed and mastered ‘The Language of Limbs’. The album features additional and high class guest vocalists, namely Alison Rachel of HONEYMOAN and renowned singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, and is an absolute must-have for fans of CULT OF LUNA, OPETH, PINK FLOYD or WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM.
