CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC to release DARK QUARTERER’s ‘Ithaca’ on Vinyl LP Format in September
is proud to announce the vinyl LP release of new album Ithaca. The target date for release is September 19. The album was release April 25 on CD by Metal on Metal Records to much acclaim.
Mastered specifically for vinyl format, the release will include two exclusive 2010, live bonus tracks that were specifically chosen by the band for their quality and uniqueness. The first is a version of band’s own classic “War Tears.” This version of the track is sung in Italian, making the interpretation of singer Gianni Nepi particularly passionate. The second is the long, touching piece “Deep Wake,” another song that shows Dark Quarterer’s incredible skills. In addition to over 70 minutes of stellar, progressive metal music, this deluxe DOUBLE LP GATEFOLD EDITION will also include a 4-page booklet with lyrics and a download card.
Ithaca is a concept album inspired by the 1911’s poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used Odysseus’s travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life; the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it’s a mix of ’80s epic heavy metal with ’70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom.
