|Lycanthia - Oligarchy|
Incorporating many diverse influences in their music, Lycanthia continues the sound found in the early "golden age" works of classic gothic doom bands Theatre of Tragedy, Tristania, My Dying Bride, and The Sins of thy Beloved, while also adding more aggressive and traditional-doom influences. Unique to the sound of Lycanthia is the use of dual female vocals provided by violinist Vanessa Black, and keyboardist Megan Robins, which is contrasted by the powerful male vocals from bassist and founding member Lee Tassaker.
The latest album, "Oligarchy", mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Katatonia), has already received many positive reviews and recognition in underground circles around the world. The album is available to order directly from the band from Lycathia's official website. The Hypnotic Dirge re-release is planned for early 2013 in digipack format. In the meantime, the track 'Forgone' is available for streaming at the links below.
