International chamber black metal group have released their debut single "Funeral Crown" as a lyric video today. The song is now available worldwide on all streaming platforms and as a limited edition vinyl.
Australian vocalist Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris/Omega Infinity) 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.
