Martyr Lucifer has been recording a trilogy of EPs that shows three
different, separated and amplified, sides of his sound, now the process
reached its end and finally all the pieces come together. Shard One, Two

for within the end of the year. The EPs have been recorded at Domination
Studio and feature Simone Mularoni and Dario Ciccioni (empYrios),
Antarktica (Darkend) and Adrian Erlandsson (At the Gates, Paradise Lost)
Shard One is the first in a trilogy of EPs, featuring Dario Ciccioni of empYrios on drums.
Shard Two is an acoustic EP of 4 tracks, the second in the Shards trilogy. Antarktica of Darkend has woven beautiful orchestral textures and Bless of Hortus Animae has contributed with some additional piano.
Later on, Adrian Erlandsson (At the Gates, Paradise Lost) joined the Martyr Lucifer project again and recorded drums for the 3 tracks that constitute Shard Three, the last in the Shards trilogy.
All the EPs have been recorded at Simone Mularoni's Domination Studio and feature (of course) Martyr Lucifer and Leìt on vocals and Simone Mularoni on guitars and bass and are now fully mixed and mastered as we're getting closer to their release.
