Released: September 2010
ARDIENTE (meaning "Burning Chapel") were formed around 2005 by
Claudio Botarro & Felipe Plaza.
name "CAPILLA ARDIENTE" is a phrase in Spanish that means "burning
chapel", which actually is the place where the recently deceased
receive their funeral (namely, their house, a church or any other
specific place), usually lighted by many funeral candles. It’s also a
name given to a funerary rite.
been mostly influenced by old school Metal from the 80┤s and early
90┤s, first and foremost Heavy, Doom and Thrash Metal, their music
breathes the true spirit of these days. The most notable influences
when it comes to the actual sound of CAPILLA ARDIENTE, however, are
Epic Doom bands one an all - Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, Mercy,
Sorcerer, Solstice and Scald. If you add a bit of King Diamond &
Mercyful Fate, old Vo´Vod, Celtic Frost and Mot÷rhead to that you┤ll
get a good idea of what CAPILLA ARDIENTE sounds like.
first release is entitled “Solve et Coagula”, which is an alchemic
concept that means separate and unite. As a concept recording, the
first two parts consist of “Solve” - expressing the separation from
dogmas and lies and ending with a definitive dissolution - and part 3
& 4 consist of “Coagula” - the painful quest for the real self and
its definitive rise.
The EP was recorded
between March & April 2009
in a local studio and first released on vinyl in late 2009 by the
vinyl-only label High Roller Records from Germany. During that time,
they signed a deal with Eyes Like Snow for the upcoming CDs and it was
decided to release “Solve et Coagula” on CD in order to make it
available to a wider audience and spread the band’s name around the
globe. Meanwhile, Claudio & Felipe, who both also play in
PROCESSION, are composing new songs for their debut CD, scheduled for a
release in early 2011.
