MALUS ANTLER is a young emerging band from the north of Italy since 2014. Initially geared towards a progressive rock genre inspired by Italian and English groups in the 1970s, it has recently changed direction, heading towards a more modern style and closer to neopsichedelic sounds.
The album is a meeting point between these two matrices.
In these few years of activity, MALUS ANTLER has played mostly in venues and small festivals in Veneto and now, with the release of the album, the goal is to spread the music even outside the region.
“Osimandia” is a concept album based on an interpretation of the figure of Egyptian god Seth. Starting from the fact that this is the only Egyptian deity we do not know about the hypostatic animal, we have developed a story that tells Seth’s research of his own origin. A journey that involves various questions to which this god can not find the answers.
As for the cover and the album’s name we referred to a poem by Percy Shelley that was our case, “Ozymandias”.
