Italian symphonic black metal heads Opera IX have set the release date of their first album in seven years, “Strix Maledictae in Aeternum”, to January 24th via Poland’s Agonia Records. The new release closes the concept of witchcraft trilogy that began in 2002 with “Maleventum” album.


Agonia Records have stated that “with ‘Strix Maledicte In Aeternum’, Opera IX wants to analyze all those visions that came from the darkest times of humanity, the medieval ages. Spirit of witchcraft and darkness is present among the songs, giving the whole a less epic touch, but much more symphonic, direct and agonizing, making this album a lustful journey throughout the deepest and most macabre desires of man”.


A video clip for the song “Mandragora” is available for streaming HERE.
