ANTIQVA stream new single via Metal Injection

International chamber black metal group are streaming their single “Funeral Crown” a day ahead of release via Metal Injection.

Australian vocalist Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris/Omega Infinity) and Canadian Juno nominated composer/pianist/harpist Lindsay Schoolcraft, conceived the idea for Antiqva while touring Europe in 2015, both expressing the interest to explore different musical pathways within the same band, ultimately starting a project that combined the age and elegance of classical music with the wild fervour of black metal, bringing both worlds together to create something altogether truly immense yet intimately detailed.

With an ensemble of experienced past, present, and live musicians from bands including Negator, Karkaos/Blackguard, Black Crown Initiate, Susperia/Abyssic, and The Ocean (in addition to Xenoyr and Schoolcraft’s own lengthy resumes), Antiqva unites many talents, and if the depth and intricacy of ‘Funeral Crown’ is any indication of what’s to come, Antiqva is not a band to sleep on.

Xen commented,

“Music from Antiqva has been a long time coming, but like most good things it required patience and maturing. For obvious reasons this year, our individual main projects were delayed and/or unable to tour so we seized the opportunity to focus largely on developing our sound more, and finally through pandemic and isolation, recorded across 5 countries, we now emerge with our debut track, ‘Funeral Crown’.

“In short the song discusses the abuse of power, something we’ve all been exposed to, subjected to or even been a part of, and it paints a picture of the potential consequences. The interest we’ve garnered so far has been overwhelming considering we’re ultimately a brand new band, but we hope this will whet your appetite for what is to come. Thank you to those who’ve followed and supported our journey so far.”
