The Italian doom duo Architeuthis Rex (Antonio Gallucci & Francesca Marongiu) is returning with their third full length album and their first vinyl release: “Stilbon Is Dead”.

After an intense journey through different variation of doom music in the last half decade, Architeuthis Rex return with their very own version of doom. “Stilbon is Dead” is their most concentrated batch of impulsive sounds, breaking out of your speakers. It´s just a few seconds warning footstep field recordings at the beginning of the album, if you overstep this moment you will find yourself in a doom cave with accentuated guitars, beautiful siren vocals, unseizable synthiesounds and very erratic drums.

Speaking of drums, this album is the first release including drums by the new third bandmember Francesco Gregoretti. And speaking of other musicians, Architeuthis Rex asked their friend Terence Hannum (Locrian) to do some vocals for “Almagest”. The result is a haunting track with locrian-ish vocals.

“Stilbon Is Dead” comes in an edition of 300 copies on swamp green 12inch vinyl, housed in matt outersleeve containing the artwork of Christopher Colville.
