|2010-11-15 : Ava Inferi is about to bring you its fourth offering|
Atmospheric doomsters AVA INFERI just finished completing their new album! The Portuguese’s / Norwegian’s fourth opus is entitled “Onyx” and will be released on February 14th (22nd in the US), 2011. Guitarist and band leader Rune Eriksen made the following statement about “Onyx”:
“The Tree of Life has got to be learnt by heart; you must know it backwards, forwards, sideways, and upside down; it must become the automatic background of all your thinking. You must keep on hanging everything that comes your way upon its proper bough.
“....and so became ONYX."
"The ONYX stone has had diverse meaning over the ages. The most folkloric or saga-friendly might be the one that features a sleeping Venus, telling the tale of a crooked cupid cutting her fingernails, leaving them scattered on the ground. And obviously, as in the design of the Gods, they were transformed to stone and known on earth as ONYX. Maybe not exactly what we had in mind, however an amusing and inspiring tale."
