SOULS OF DIOTIMA - Fourth Studio Album Out Today, New Video Premiered Online

Sardinia (Italy) based female-fronted dark/symphonic/progressive metallers Souls Of Diotima have today released their fourth studio album, Janas. The Italian combo is proud to celebrate its release day with a magnificent music video for the song "The Dark Lady".

Commenting on the new single the founder member, lyricist and drummer Giorgio Pinna says: "Perhaps this is the most catchy and 'commercial' track on the album. It's a very simple and catchy song, and we think it's excellent. It's powerful and you will easily fix the lyrics in your mind. The story is about a very controversial character from our land, who actually existed around 50 years ago. Her name is 'Accabadora'. She was a fairly old woman, dressed entirely in black with her face almost completely covered, so often only her eyes could be seen. Her mission was to alleviate the suffering of those on the verge of death, putting an end to their life using a wooden stick which she was always taking with her. This woman was called by the family of the sick person to put an end to their suffering."

The album Janas is a concept, the second chapter of a journey that began with the previous album, The Sorceress Reveals - Atlantis. Janas tells the stories and legends of band's land, Sardinia. Their island is full of wonderful mythological tales and characters, of esoteric stories that are often macabre, but which portray a truly fascinating historical and cultural journey. If you missed it, you can listen and watch the previously released lyric videos for the album title track and the first single "The Black Mask" over HERE and HERE. Link
