SOULS OF DIOTIMA - New Single And Lyric Video Released

Sardinia (Italy) based female-fronted dark/symphonic/progressive metallers Souls Of Diotima will release their fourth studio album, titled Janas, on 29th January 2021 via Diotima Records/Rockshots Records. Today the four-piece band unveils a brand new lyric video for the second single "Janas".

Commenting on the new single the founder member, lyricist and drummer Giorgio Pinna says: "Along with "The Black Mask", this song best represents the essence of the entire album. It tells the story of the Janas, fictional fairy creatures found around our island, who are depicted on the album cover. They lived inside small caves carved into the rock and only came out on full moon nights. They are portrayed as small, winged fairies, with a beautiful, delicate appearance. They are also described by Grazia Deledda, a Sardinian writer and Nobel prize winner in literature, as 'largely evil little creatures', because, despite their deceptive appearance, they were not angelic in the slightest. They were enchantresses who bewitched with their beauty, with the power to decide the fate of human beings, often choosing an unfortunate destiny. According to many stories, the Janas kidnapped humans, especially males, to suck their blood. They also stole from their victims and kept their treasures hidden inside their caves."

The album Janas is a concept, the second chapter of a journey that began with the previous album, The Sorceress Reveals - Atlantis. Janas tells the stories and legends of band's land, Sardinia. Their island is full of wonderful mythological tales and characters, of esoteric stories that are often macabre, but which portray a truly fascinating historical and cultural journey. Previously released first single and lyric video "The Black Mask" can be still checked out over HERE, but now listen and watch the lyric video for the album title track. Link
