ANTONIUS REX - Neque Semper Arcum Tendit Rex


Product Description

ANTONIUS REX is a TRUE occult legend! We are proud to present you the unreleased studio album recorded in 1974. "Neque Semper" takes you slowly down a long dark vortex. In 1974 Antonius Rex went to London where knew Albert Goodman, an aristocratic practioner of the occult, wealthy owner of country estates with his own castle and the independent record label Darkness. After ten days of intense rehearsal, the band, together with engineer Coldweiss, went into the Mondial Sound Studios in Milan, and recorded the third album (the first as Antonius Rex), entitled "Neque Semper Arcum Tendit Rex". Produced by Mr. Albert Goodman.... The six recorded tracks are typically dark-progressive with some Black Sabbath influences. Albert was delighted with the result and spared no expense producing the album, which was recorded in just 38 days, to which can be added another ten for the mixing. Albert went back to London with the master tape, published a demo LP with a really strange black and white cover, including on the front magical symbols and a "diabolical" letter dated 1624. Albert Goodman seems to be good friends with two directors of the Vertigo record label. The label thought the album was great, but they were not so sure about the cover: that cover with those symbols and that letter were just too much! They even suggested dumping the song "Devil Letter", but the group had no intention of doing that and were certainly not inclined to change a single thing…..The Legend will go on….
