Biography: Somewhere in the nowhere-land between the majestic remains of Ancient Rome and the emerald forests of Great Albion, the arcane forces of Towards Atlantis Lights have been silently crafting their dark art for many a starless aeon. Undeterred by the modern forces of consumerism and need for social media exhibitionism, four individuals have been patiently developing their sound, gaining inspiration from century-old traditions and forgotten lore. Ivan Zara’s (Void of Silence) enchanting, sophisticated guitar lines, meet Kostas Panagiotou’s (Pantheist) mystical keyboards, monastic chants and brutal exclamations, complemented by Riccardo Veronese’s (Aphonic Threnody) inventive bass lines and Ivano Olivieri’s pounding yet varied drums. The result of this collaboration is a number of unconventional, complex yet completely captivating tracks of arcane funeral doom metal, which resulted in our debut album ‘Dust of Aeons’. Emerging from the shadows, we feel the moment has come to reach out the hand to like-minded dark souls with what we have on offer.
