2020-06-20 : New Ixion album announced for October 2020

The new Ixion album will be a return to more Space/Doom territory, and will be released on both CD and vinyl in October. Preorder news will follow.

From the press release:
"French atmospheric doomsters IXION have just revealed details about their new album. Entitled 'L'ADIEU AUX ETOILES', it will be released in October 2020, on 29978 Productions/Finisterian Dead End.

The announcement evokes "a reaffirmed doom and mournful dimension, and ethereal-electronic atmospheres from the cold depths of space, revealing the essence of IXION's music, highlighted by thorough arrangements and the most ambitious production from the project".

The album has been mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, and illustrated by Vincent Fouquet - Above Chaos.

Julien Prat comments: "I started to compose this album driven by a desire to get back to funeral doom ambiences, and soon felt the new material was in fact at the very heart of our universe. Thus, it became the idea: to release a condensed album, focused on our core musical identity. It deserved a careful production, and finally, the songs really sound as we had imagined! Not forgetting the amazing artworks and photos which perfectly illustrate the music and concept. All this makes the album so special for us."

Digital copies and streaming at Bandcamp.
