Limbonic Art are back. Following a seven year gap after the release of their last album, the band have returned. Picking up where Phantasmagoria left off, Spectre Abysm further strips back the symphonics and keyboards that left their mark on earlier work. Limbonic Art is very much the brainchild of Norwegian musician, Daemon, and Spectre Abysm is the most raw – and pure – black metal assault he has delivered to date.
Limbonic Art formed in 1993 in Norway. In 1996, they were signed to the record label Nocturnal Art Productions, owned by Samoth (of Emperor and Zyklon) and they released their debut album, Moon in the Scorpio. In 2003, after four further full length releases, the group decided to disband with a statement saying “we feel that we have reached as far as we could in our collaboration… the circle is complete, begin another.”
On June 6, 2006 (06.06.06), the band reunited and started to write new material. The result was 2007’s Legacy of Evil.
A subsequent dispute between the band members resulted in Morfeus’s ousted from the band, making Limbonic Art essentially Daemon’s solo project. The previous Limbonic Art release, titled Phantasmagoria, came out in the summer of 2010 to widespread critical acclaim
