The Italian project Ensoph was born from the ashes of Endaymynion in 1997. During the time of 1998-2001 there have been a few line-up changes and they released a MCD + reprint in a nice shape, a promo and a full length album. In the first months of 2002 the band planed a new promo called "Sophia", the titles of the new tracks were "Sophia's Fall" and "Proudly Divine" and a remix by Bruno Kramm of Das Ich called "Sophia's Fall - Sophies Welt RX". The remix gave the band a great publicity because it ended up on CDs that were enclosed to the magazines Gothic (GER), Zillo (GER) and Ritual (ITA). In 2003 Nicholas (vocals), Giuliano (guitars & programming), Massimo (bass), Leonardo (keyboard), Anna (flute) and Zenone (drums) recorded the new album "Opus Dementiae - Per Speculum Et In Aenigmate" which contains seven new tracks and the three of the promo "Sophia" re-mixed and re-mastered.

Giuliano and Zenone, both original members and founders of Ensoph, blend their passion for esoterics, theatre, philosophy, industrial and gothic into a musical project. This album indeed contains an interesting mix, which also includes extreme metal and folk elements. Weird in the construction, dark progressive, innovative with obscure atmospheres, sometimes sick, then beautiful and arcane. You will find a mix of hysterial screams, extreme vocals with melodic, clean ones. The female vocals on "Sophia's Fall" are performed by Giovanna, whoever this is ;) "Opus Dementiae - Per Speculum Et In Aenigmate" contains a mix of English and Italian lyrics, which gives this album an excellent touch.

The album will be released in April and is surely not only interesting for gothic and industrial fans... Italian fans of the modern extreme can check out the band live on the little Gothic Easter tour. You'll find the dates on their website.
