Italian gothic metalcore group Levania return with their new mini-Ep, Episode 0, released via Sliptrick Records in online digital format.

The EP opens up with Abyss, a song that addresses the issue of depression, analyzing how one can become slaves to one’s demons. Abyss also addresses the issue of moral hazard, when one has to choose how to deal with discomfort.

This is followed with Reflections which talks about the all-Italian problem of functional illiteracy. Man is a social animal but if he is not educated, he will remain an animal moved by primitive instincts. In this society appearance is more important than education, and this is leading to an involution of the species.

Episode 0 closes with Reckoning, an instrumental outro, both alluring and seductive.

    Auf der EP fällt vor allem der Opener “Abyss” auf, der den Mix richtig gut und mit Ohrwurmqualität rüberbringt. Das folgende “Reflections” ist etwas ruhiger und Track 3, “Reckoning” nur noch ein instrumentaler Ausklang. “Abyss” hat mich neugierig auf ein neues Album gemacht, das bestimmt irgendwann kommt …read more

    In a nutshell, Levania’s new mini-EP Episode 0 might have only nine minutes of duration as mentioned, but those Gothic metallers from the beautiful Italy certainly knew how to transform such short period of time into sheer electricity …read more
