"Godly" was born with the idea of ​​narrating that sort of cult that has its roots in the epic of earthly creation, but from divinities belonging to an apocryphal cosmogony, and those coming from the hypothetical Planet X (Nibiru) during a precise moment of its passage close to our orbit. Passage that he then left, the sprouts of his DNA on our planet. While in the previous album Nibiruan Chronicles the songs were mostly descriptive of these phases, in Godly the themes are more intimate and spiritual, also hybridized to the Christian cult, which later spread. The resulting aesthetic is in fact that of the Angel / Reptile, as can be seen from the cover. The songs are composed of a decidedly massive and "traditional" sound in the Metal and Doom sound, even if inside them almost two natures coexist; one in fact powerful and incisive, the other more reflective, decadent and also forwarded into territories that touch tribal, electronic or symphonic music. The melodies flow slowly and full-bodied.


The Abyssian project was born in 2010, by the will of Rob, former member and founder of Sinoath, with whom after having explored at the beginning, a sound close to Black / Doom metal and later to Dark / Doom; resumes after several years of inactivity, a songwriting that maintains the same coordinates, but with a setting of more Atlantean matrix. The Abyssians are in fact distinguished by a sound and thematic research, linked to the imaginary related to submerged civilizations, ancient aliens and references to Sumerian poetics, about the hypothetical creation of the world. In 2012, from a one-man band, Abyssian became a duo, with the arrival of Frans, who deals with the guitar rhythm and drum programming in the project. In 2014, the limited edition The Realm of Commorion was released, which contains the title track, Neanderthal Sands and No place for the heart. After the release of the ep, it is the turn of Vinz's arrival in the band, on bass; and later Rick on drums. Although some drum machine scores will intentionally remain present within the songs. In 2016, first released in digital format for Visionaire Rec., And then on CD for Violet Nebula, the album debut Nibiruan Chronicles, which contains 9 songs, also including a reissue of the 3 songs from ep. 2017 also sees the inclusion of Frank on keyboards and drum machines in the line-up, while in 2018 Rick comes replaced by Daniele on drums. Currently the band has completed the recordings of Godly, the second album, with 8 new songs.
