Says the band: “Hello from a wet and cold Cape Town. As we look ahead to a new record which will be announced soon, we cannot close the chapter on »The Language Of Limbs« just yet. The final track on our debut LP features gorgeously haunting vocals from Lucy Kruger, and it feels good to share the lyric video with you, which was shot between Cape Town and Johannesburg. More things soon!”

From Season Of Mist:

Have you ever wondered what »The Garden« would look like if you were to visualize it? Be ready to be mesmerized. South African post metal band Constellatia are releasing their official music video for »The Garden« which can now be viewed via the official Season Of Mist channel HERE.

»The Garden« is taken from the full-album »The Language Of Limbs« which was released via Season Of Mist on the 19th of June 2020.

Constellatia comments: “»The Garden« is a dirge about revisitation, and how when coming back things could possibly and most likely change. It’s an end and it’s a beginning. It also talks about the power struggle and helplessness that sometimes comes with being in a relationship and how that fleeting romantic landscape shifts and distorts. Musically, »The Garden« was the most progressive track on our debut record, and revisiting it now it’s easy to see where we left off, and the subsequent evolution to our new sound, which feels like an expansion on this song, whilst treading new ground.”

But there’s more great news! Constellatia finalized their newest full-length album which will be released via Season Of Mist. Stay tuned in for the official title and release date soon!

»The Language Of Limbs« was originally released on November 15, 2019 and soon after, the four piece landed a worldwide record deal with Season Of Mist. The pressings are available in various formats HERE. Stream / download »The Language Of Limbs« HERE!

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.

»The Language Of Limbs« is essentially a post-metal record with black metal and progressive influences, and a healthy dose of ambience and atmosphere; always deeply engaging with a flair for the romantic and nostalgic. “It is a record that came from a place of desperation; a musical outlet for the years of hardship both members endured in their personal lives.” Gideon Lamprecht comments. “It’s an album about obsession and overcoming. It’s a triumphant record.” adds Keenan Oakes.

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
