Constellatia takes an existential dive into human nature with their elegant and somber new album, »Magisterial Romance«. In addition to its deep and thought-provoking lyrics, the band’s atmospheric and progressive brand of black metal encapsulates the spectrum of human emotions with its larger-than-life romantic compositions and soulful ambience, creating an offering that is just as powerful and beautiful as it is vulnerable and devastating.

Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Constellatia is the collaborative vision of Gideon Lamprecht and Keenan Oakes, founders of well-known acts Crow Black Sky and Wildernessking respectively.

Formed in September 2018, and enlisting the talents of a few key collaborators, Constellatia soon completed work on the beautiful and emotional ride that is »The Language Of Limbs«. While the drums (played by Lawrence Jaeger) and vocals were engineered by Daniel Thackwray at City Varsity, Cape Town, all other instruments were recorded by Lamprecht at his home studio in Glencairn, where he also mixed and mastered »The Language Of Limbs«. The album features additional and high class guest vocalists, namely Alison Rachel of Honeymoan and renowned singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, and is an absolute must-have for fans of Cult Of Luna, Opeth, Pink Floyd or Wolves In The Throne Room.

Constellatia is:
Adam Hill – Rhythm Guitar
Gideon Lamprecht – Lead Guitar
Keenan Oakes – Bass, Vocals
Lawrence Jaeger – Drums
