TELLUS REQUIEM Launch New Website

In celebration of their upcoming album release, Norway’s TELLUS REQUIEM has launched a brand new website. It features upcoming tour dates, news merchandise, media, social network links and more.

The band described the websites design and meaning,

“The homepage is based on the artwork for our upcoming release; Invictus (The 11th Hour) done by Mr. Thomas Ewerhard. He has worked with other great artists like Symphony X, TOTO, Avantasia, Therion, Hammerfall, among others.”

The artwork and Invictus (The 11th Hour) tracklisting were revealed today. Nightmare Records will release TELLUS REQUIEUM‘s the album on January 22, 2013. Pre-orders available on Amazon and the Nightmare Records Website.

In other TELLUS REQUIEM news, the band confirmed they will be playing a handful of acoustic dates in Turkey before the holidays. These special shows feature music rearranged from the band’s self-titled debut and the new album Invictus (The 11th Hour) to fit acoustically and with a three man orchestra.

Guitarist Stig Nergård commented on the upcoming shows:

“We are really looking forward to finally doing some live shows abroad. I could not think of a more perfect place to do some acoustic shows “TELLUS REQUIEM-style”, than where the West meets the East.”

TELLUS REQUIEM consists of five members who all came from diverse musical backgrounds, which can be recognized immediately by their distinct sound. From the very first crunchy guitar wail with juicy leads your ears are battered with a progressive metal onslaught. Combining these elements with beautiful melodies and harmonies TELLUS REQUIEM delivers their breathtaking Nightmare Records debut Invictus (The 11th Hour).
