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.
