"Deviation", a new video from Italian power/progressive metallers Eldritch is now available online and you can watch it below. The song is off the band's latest album Gaia's Legacy, which was released last year through Scarlet Records. The video was directed by Skrotosound.
Italian prog metallers Eldritch have signed a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their eight studio album, Gaia's Legacy - a concept album on global warming based on Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth. The album will see the light of the day in late September 2011.
Gaia's Legacy will see Eldritch going back to their technical progressive roots, with lots of influences raging from thrash to a modern approach still in the band's distinctive style. Frontman Terence Holler wrote all the lyrics after a deep search of information on every kind of source for the last 3 years.
The album was produced by Marco Ribecai and Eugenio Simone at Syncropain Products Studio in Pisa, Italy, and mastered by Göran Finnberg (Opeth, In Flames, Evergrey, Dark Tranquillity) in Sweden. Firewind's Bob Katsionis, a long-time fan of the band, is credited as special guest keyboardist on the song "Like A Child".
The band posted the following on their MySpace a few days ago:
"Hi folks, what's going on??? It's time for us to inform you about what's happening in Eldritch: Rob Pek Proietti played his last show on the last October 4th. Sunday 11th in Rome it was Rudj Ginanneschi's debut gig!!! After this show, the band is taking a break from live performances and is concentrating their energy on songwriting. In the meantime we wish Pek all the best for the future and wish the same luck that Pek had in the band to Rudj. Eldritch is a big family and we'll never forget anybody's contribution to the band's career. Ok, keep your eyes wide open on the next bulletins!! Cheers."
Italy's Eldritch have posted the following message on their website:
"Yo folks!! So, here we are again.... The band is working hard for the March 22nd event (plus the live DVD recording of such show). Oleg Smirnoff will surely play the old tracks from the 1st 3 albums. For the rest, there will probably be some special guest on stage, but nothing official yet... the songwriting for the new album will begin in the months to come.... What else??? Hope to see the most of you guys at the DVD gig and in the meantime the band wishes everybody to keep the faith!! Rock on..."
Eldritch will be recording their first official live DVD at the Music Street Club in Lugnano, Pisa, in Italy, on March 22nd.
The following message was posted on Eldritch's official website:
"Due to personal problems and to other different point of views, Eldritch decided to replace the drummer Dave Simone with the young and talented Raffahell Dridge. This is another important loss in the band's history, but sometimes it's necessary to take different roads. Dave is still a brother and the band will never forget what he's done for Eldritch in these last 7 years and 4 albums! We all wish him all the best for his future carreer. More news will follow in the next months..."
