Alice When I learned these guys collaborated with Downfall of Nur, I rushed to listen their own album. Gosh. Rather than turning their black metal into something mellow, the folk elements somehow make it even more powerful and captivating. Favorite track: O Clitumne!.

Andy This album is epic from start to finish. Look at the cover and imagine that the creature it depicts has written and performed all the music. From the folkesque interludes to the nasty snarling vocals backed by a multitude of instruments, this album deserves very high praise indeed. Euphoria ! Favorite track: O Clitumne!.

H.L. SELVANS from Italy play vigorous symphonic black metal, with original folk elements. All ingredients fit perfectly together and especially the flutes add a fresh and unusual note to the dark tunes. The main vocals are best described as a throaty gargling. So far ok, but not as extra-ordinary as the music.
Even though "Lupercalia" is a melodic piece of art, the level of aggression is high enough to avoid becoming cheesy at any time. Nice one! Favorite track: O Clitumne!.

about

'Lupercalia' is the first Selvans full length album after their debut mini-cd 'Clangores Plenilunio'.
Six tracks, over 60 minutes of music again marked by their unique way to mix keyboard-led symphonic black metal with (many) elements of traditional Italian folk but keeping the overall sound very angry, furious and not happy at all...
After spending most of 2015 on the road promoting the newly-formed band and the mini cd, Selvans is now ready to face up the public with a fundamental release, that is their debut full length album.
On this album we witness Selvans orchestrations dwelling in 8-to-17 minutes long opuses with no moments of boredom or climax failures: You just can't help being raptured by the wolves of Italy...
