ECNEPHIAS is an Italian extreme occult metal band born in Potenza, Italy, in 1996 thanks to frontman vocalist/guitarist Mancan, but the first work was released only in 2005.

The year 2015 means a lot to the band: it is the first anniversary that celebrates 10 years from the first ECNEPHIAS’ release. For the event the band will release “Ecnephias” that is the 5 th full-length album and the third act in a “trilogy” that began with “Inferno” and continued with “Necrogod”. My Kingdom Music captured the great essence and potentialities of this band and offered them a contract.
The band signed it and released “Ecnephias” in February 2015. The success of the album was incredible and the result was a new collaboration between My Kingdom Music and ECNEPHIAS and it leads to the release of the 6th creation of the band titled “The Sad Wonder Of The Sun”, an album that will confirm them as one of the darkest Metal band around and that, one more time, will surprise the listeners and the band’s fans for the obscure and mystic power of their music and themes.
