Dutch death/doom metal band Officium Triste are all set to release their seventh full length album which is titled »Hortus Venenum«. Preorders for this one will be up in the coming month via Transcending Obscurity Records.

Band’s statement, “»Behind Closed Doors« is the first single and opening track of »Hortus Venenum«. When we were working on this song we named it the horror song due to that keyboard part. Martin came up with the song title. The lyrics deal with real live horror.

»Hortus Venenum« means poison garden. Now actual poison gardens do exist, but we use it as a metaphor. Paolo Girardi perfectly painted the idea we had for the cover. You’ll figure it out!”

Officium Triste was formed in April 1994 with the purpose of creating slow, heavy and melodic doom/death metal. Inspiration was mainly found within the music of bands like Paradise Lost, Anathema, Chorus of Ruin, My Dying Bride, Celestial Season and Katatonia.
