PARTHENOPEAN BLACK METAL since 2008
SCUORN was born to worship the cult of Parthenope by revealing the most ancient legends and history of the mysterious Neapolitan lands, known over the centuries for their hellenic and roman origins and for being fervent cradle of the Italian culture.
The epic black metal atmospheres, strongly influenced by the world famous “canzone napoletana”, and the sound of traditional folk instruments melt with majestic orchestrals and evocative lyrics in native language, express the concept of the band at its best.
SCOURN (which means “shame” in Neapolitan language) was founded in Naples (Italy) in 2008 by Giulian (Vocals, All Instruments & Orchestral Arrangements).
In July 2016 SCUORN singed a a two-albums deal with the label Dusktone, while in November 2016 the band’s debut live show at Cult Of Parthenope Black Metal Fest 2016 in Naples, supporting the legendary romanian atmospheric/folk black metallers NEGURA BUNGET, went sold out.
In February 2017, SCUORN released the much-anticipated debut album “PARTHENOPE”, recorded mixed and mastered at the world-acclaimed 16th Cellar Studio in Rome in 2016 by the producer Stefano “Saul” Morabito (FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, HOUR OF PENANCE). Very special guest on the album is the “maestro” Riccardo Studer from Italian extreme epic metal pioneers STORMLORD, who shaped an impressive orchestra who reminds of bands such as DIMMU BORGIR and SEPTICFLESH for epicness and greatness. The concept album is focused on the most ancient greek-roman origins of Naples, and each song is related to a specific legend from those times, such as the 79 a.d. volcano Vesuvio’s eruption who destroyed Pompeii and many others.
In March 2017 the band embarked on the successful “PARTHENOPE ITALIAN TOUR (Part 1)”, playing in the whole country including 3 headlining shows and two special guest appearences supporting greek black metal gods ROTTING CHRIST.
Worship the cult of “PARTHENOPE” !!!
