Octavia Sperati will be touring the UK in April, performing at six different venues.

07/04/2008 :: Formed in 2000, Octavia Sperati was in 2004 showcased at by:Larm, Scandinavia’s largest music conference, as one of the 50 most promising acts in Norway, which landed them their record deal with UK based Candlelight Records. The band, consisting mainly of girls, grew up in Bergen with friends in bands such as Enslaved, Immortal and Gorgoroth, which gives them a platform within the extreme and old-school metal scene. However, the band has created its own sound, which is embraced by both goths and other metal heads.

Octavia Speratis’ debut album ‘Winter Enclosure’(Candlelight Records) was well received by both critics and audiences when released in May 2005. Centred within doom metal, their heavy riffs weave around ethereal vocals. The second album, ‘Grace Submerged’, was released in May 2007, also  through Candlelight. The album was highly acclaimed and well covered in the European press. Like ‘Winter Enclosure’, this album has been recorded and produced by Herbrand Larsen and Arve Isdal.

‘Brilliant new album from Norway’s finest goths. …the sound of a band who are surely destined for even bigger things upon the release of this gorgeous album’ - Graham Finney, Big Cheese magazine

‘Echoes of Nightwish and Lacuna Coil gather here in massive aural waves, and Octavia Sperati are worthy of both comparisons’ - Steve Beebee, Kerrang
