La mente degli OPERA IX Ossian ha commentato: ‘ “The Gospel” è un concept album focalizzato sul mito italiano di ‘Aradia, o il Vangelo delle Streghe’ scritto da Charles Godfrey Leland e che contiene ciò che l’autore pensava essere il testo religioso di un gruppo di streghe pagane in Toscana, documentando il loro credo e i loro rituali.
DVD in formato digipack prodotto dalla band e contenente lo show al Rock Hard Festival più 2 Videoclip e altri episodi live tratti dalla loro performance in Romania
Exactly twenty years after the release of their first album The Call of the Wood, Opera IX rerelease some of the most significant pieces of their history, each one taken from different albums, starting from their first.
Back to Sepulcro is a collection aimed at highlighting the origins of the band by taking advantage of a total lineup change which sees a return to a witchgirl frontwoman after 13 years of militant male vocals leading from the historic split with Cadaveria.
There are only two new songs- Consacration, and the first part of The Cross- which lead into the rest of Back to Sepulcro. The other songs are milestones like Sepulcro, The Oak, The First Seal, Maleventum, all in new rerecorded versions with orchestrations worthy of the occult allure of Opera IX and aboveall with a vocalist who newly consecrates the band under the sign of the purest witchcraft. In the words of Ossian: "A return to the true esoteric essence of the earliest years, without any compromise."

OPERA IX / BLACK OATH special 12”LP out on November 15th! Originally conceived as a thematical split Lp covering the old European festive day of Samhain, the album suffered a minor delay because of Covid-related matters. And floods in the factory. And a good old chunk of general misfortune. OPERA IX return with one new, unreleased track, called “Necromantical Sacraments” and a reworking of “The Call of the Wood” off their 1994 debut Lp. Same pattern is followed by BLACK OATH, strongly delivering a massive “Samhain” and a re-recording of “My Death” Once again IRON TYRANT is active in releasing strong material from Italian artists, always delving deeper into our own tradition of occult metal.
Limited edition of 50 Copies.
Wooden box with Opera IX Logo, Digipack CD, Embroided Patch with band logo and 9 Cards autographed by the band.
Recorded and mastered at both Music Ink and Occultum Studios in March 2018.
