Wrathful and melancholic, drawing inspiration from apophatic theology and mystery doctrines, Sanguis Solaris is a project created by Alberto, experienced lyricist and guitar player, who’s been part of the Neapolitan black metal scene from its early days.
After some line-up changes, Alberto brought in Vinz (Orchestra Esteh) as guitar player and, in doing so, songs started being drafted. After a while Marco joined them, shortly followed by former Disturbia drummer Alessandro, thus completing the line-up. And then came Migrations, the first lot of songs officially bearing Sanguis Solaris’ name.
Twenty-three minutes of raiding spirituality that sum up the early years of the band’s production. A maelstrom of layered black metal influenced by different sources inhabits this mystic EP, the first milestone in Sanguis Solaris’ future productions.
