SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Avant-garde heavy metal act Ephel Duath has released its first album in five years Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness today in North America on Agonia Records. Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness can be purchased on Amazon.com at: http://www.amazon.com/Hemmed-By-Light-Shaped-Dark/dp/B00CCPD9U4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_m_1.

"This album holds together all that Ephel Duath's music has touched in the last 15 years, and pushes its boundaries even further," commented guitarist and songwriter Davide Tiso. "Lyrically, the new songs dig deep in higher self-subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest."

"Ephel Duath exists in its own realm as ever, uprooting expectations just as its logical madness begins to make sense." NPR MUSIC 

Ignited by commitment and passion, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, and a strong statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, Ephel Duath takes an uncompromising will to experiment to a whole new level of intensity.

Featuring eight new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness includes a unique line-up of: Marco Minnemann (Kreator, Necrophagist, Joe Satriani) behind the drums, Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass, lead singer Karyn Crisis (Crisis, Karyn Crisis Band) along with the founder, guitarist and songwriter Davide Tiso.
