Formed in mid-2003 by friends who sought to combine their musical and personal influences through instrumental composition, Labirinto seeks to create textures and atmospheres full of imagery. Labirinto’s music is a sonic experiment and they bring the listener along for the beautiful ride.
The band’s most recent full length album Anatema is available on deluxe digipack CD and double LP. The album was mixed at the Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago by Greg Norman (Pelican/Russian Circles) and mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac/Mission of Burma/Sebadoh). It is an amazing orchestral, prog-rock journey across its 6 track, which are in the vein of Godspeed! You Black Emperor and Mogwai. About Anatema, the band states that it “presents a conceptual narrative about creation, destruction and the eternal reconstruction of the world”. It is beautifully package with stunning illustrations by João Ruas, a renowned American comic book.
