Antiqva, the new International chamber black metal outfit featuring Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris/Omega Infinity) and Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle of Filth), have surprised their fans yesterday (3rd) by releasing their debut single “Funeral Crown” via Metal Injection. To celebrate the group’s single release, the band has unveiled a lyric video for what could be one of the best songs of 2020, if not the best. The band has shown the virtue of patience as this track rules. Simple as that.
“Music from Antiqva has been a long time coming, but like most good things it required patience and maturing. For obvious reasons this year, our individual main projects were delayed and/or unable to tour so we seized the opportunity to focus largely on developing our sound more, and finally through pandemic and isolation, recorded across 5 countries, we now emerge with our debut track, ‘Funeral Crown.’ In short the song discusses the abuse of power, something we’ve all been exposed to, subjected to or even been a part of, and it paints a picture of the potential consequences. The interest we’ve garnered so far has been overwhelming considering we’re ultimately a brand new band, but we hope this will whet your appetite for what is to come. Thank you to those who’ve followed and supported our journey so far.”
