Rick Barrios In my opinion nothing will ever surpass what this group created back in 2000 with 'The Black Opera,' but this album comes close as fans get to witness an album that beckons the listener as it did many years ago with 'The Black Opera," and it's great melodies that were mixed with such hypnotic verses and atmosphere. Feels great to finally hear this band return to what once made them so blasphemously delicious, along with being a blessing to the ears. Favorite track: Chapter II.

endlessfuneral69 They've done it again. Taking cue from earlier albums and adding in new elements, culminating in their best work since "The Black Opera" (not that they have released a bad album). Favorite track: The Gospel.

about

The wait is over !
The new studio album "The Gospel" by the legendary Opera IX is finally released after six long years by the previous "Strix - Maledictae in Aeternum".

Opera IX certainly do not need presentation, they have been true initiators of Italian occult black metal since the early 90s. With assets of seven full length albums, Opera IX has become one of the best-known Italian band abroad successfully crossing national borders in time. They released music for renowned labels such as Peaceville, Avantgarde Music, Agonia and then landed at Dusktone in 2014

The Gospel is a concept album focused on the Italian myth of "Aradia And The Gospel Of The Witches", written by Charles Godfrey Leland and containing what he believed was the religious text of a group of pagan witches in Tuscany, Italy, documenting their beliefs and rituals.

The album includes nine masterfully composed tracks with sounds that represent a bit of a "return to the past" in terms of dark, mystical and occult atmospheres and sees the inclusion of a new witch on vocals (Dipsas Dianaria) that forges with its powerful and ritual voice every track keeping intact the Opera IX trademark in years.

Acoustic parts, classical ones, raging rides and mystical deadlifts make The Gospel a true masterpiece that manages to repay the long wait of all the fans around the globe that have always claimed a new album with such emotional charge remained unchanged in years

The new album has been recorded and mastered at both Music Ink and Occultum Studios, produced by Ossian and Federico Pennazzato (Death SS).

Treat it with care and respect as only the legends deserve.
