Employing unconventional structures and a claustrophobic and horrific atmosphere completed by a six piece chant section, 'As Ghosts' soon gained a cult following. English label Cacophonous Records were quick to sign the band and intensive work then began on the debut release 'On The Eve Of The Grimly Inventive'. Sessions leading up to the recording were a furnace of artistic exploration with many reference points, Oscar Wilde, Pendereki, Prokofiev and Poe to name but a few. Recorded in 1998 at Academy Studios in England the album was in stark contrast to the Metal scene of the time and was either celebrated for its sheer invention or attacked for its lack of conformity.
Its anxious, nervous and desperate disposition, its stabbing schizophrenic and autistic personality was a hard pill to swallow. The fire burned with such intensity that it vanished as quickly as it appeared. A decade later and the paths of Ophelius and Mass cross once more and Ebonylake is reborn and the whispers turn to screams.........it is here.
