Barry Sullivan Not the meanest of the Roman race am I, the offspring of an illustrious chieftain, lord of the world in the one case, or in the other, the destined heir to my father's calamity. I stand on a tremendous and giffy height; snatch me from this posture of doubt; let me not blindly rush on, and blindly fall; extort this secret from the gods, or force the dead to confess what they know.

The creation of dark ambient MELVL, Aram 17, and Victor Imaginator, Rītvs īn Colossēvm is a tale of necromancy and menace. The album is a musical narration of Florentine sculptor Benvenuto Cellini’s autobiographical account of a necromantic ceremony in Rome’s Colosseum during the Italian Renaissance. Filled with infernal invocations and demonic splendor, Rītvs īn Colossēvm is a bleak masterpiece of horror. Enjoy while the veil is still thin.
(Note: Benvenuto Cellini’s birthday is November 3rd, hence why the release timing of this album is all the more special.)
