What the time doesn’t erase, is strengthened in the memory:
the memory of loved ones, of lost faith and the blood shed which is now outlined through this journey inside the music and moral heritage of the past, going beyond the Pillars of Hercules of any religious or political belief.
From theophany to solipsism, the wayfarer’s catharsis takes shape
across the project's sound textures, epic and introspective as yesterday, but today also tinged with shades ranging from conviviality to more majestic chorality.
All made with a balanced use of computer (each vocal part and acoustic instrument is sung / played by the musician) on a substrate of Concrete processing.
A sound katabasis down to the hell of one’s emotional intelligence
with an obol perhaps too expensive to be paid ...

The new opus signed by Furvus is now out, after a long pause during which the project has been kept alive through exclusive songs recorded for international samplers and the composition of an album (Veluti Peregrinus in Antiquitatis Memoriis) which unfortunately has been lost, apart from a demo recordings + some raw material.
