From the dark north of Sweden comes the melodic/symphonic death metal act Maestitium — a studio project started by guitarist, vocalist, and composer Elias Westrin (Tomb Dweller, ex Voices of Vengeance) in the fall of 2019. While attending a music production course at Hola Folkhögskola outside of Kramfors, Sweden, Elias was assigned a project of creating an EP, and thus Maestitium was born.
Being doubtful about instrumental recordings, he searched for months for a drummer and bassist to do session work for the EP, but no one was very interested or able to play what was in mind. Luckily, after playing with the local Judas Priest cover band Metal Gods – Delivering the goods, he came in contact with Nils “Dominator” Fjellström (Nordjevel, Ex Dark Funeral) and Anton Flodin (Deathbreed). Both of them eventually became interested in recording as the session musicians for the EP.
Tale of the Endless is the debut EP telling the story of three people with troubled and dark minds, full of anger, despair, and sorrow. With inspiration from bands like Insomnium, Hinayana, and Wolfheart, Tale of the Endless brings epic melodies, blasting drums, and unworldly atmospheres.
