ANTIQVA - Shares First Teaser Of Upcoming Debut Single

The international chamber black metal supergroup Antiqva, founded by Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris, Omega Infinity) and Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth), who recently revealed that they will release the debut single named "Funeral Crown" on 4th of December, now share the first short audio teaser. This musical rroject is operated from Lindsay's Cyber Proxy Independent Records.

"Funeral Crown" will be followed by a full-length album later in 2021. With dramatic chants and moving string sections, this is a show-stopping introduction to a project with high expectations. Australian vocalist Xenoyr 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.
