"Two of the songs are originally from our first EP, called 'Guilty', released in 2002," the group previously stated. "This EP was released by OCTAVIA, and in a very limited edition. We really liked the songs then, and have now rearranged them for a new birth. The new versions kick ass and we can't wait to get this stuff out!"
OCTAVIA SPERATI filmed the video for its new song "Moonlit" on March 9-11 with director Tommy Næss, who has previously worked with SAHG, AUDREY HORNE, I and GORGOROTH, among others.
OCTAVIA SPERATI recorded the new CD with producers Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED, ex-AUDREY HORNE) and Arve Isdal (I, ENSLAVED and AUDREY HORNE), who previously worked with the group on their "Winter Enclosure" debut.
Formed in 2000, OCTAVIA SPERATI's current lineup includes singer Silje Wergeland, bassist Trine C. Johansen, guitarists Gyri S. Losnegaard and Bodil Myklebust, keyboardist Tone Midtgaard and drummer Ivar Alver.
