EPHEL DUATH have completed some demo recordings as pre-production for their upcoming "The Painter’s Palette" album. Main man Davide has assembled a line-up of great musicians, including two members who also play in freeform Jazz bands. These influences will make Ephel Duath more organic, crazier, more layered and multidimensional than ever before.
