Through a 3-years development, the quintet from Úbeda (Jaén, Spain) has managed to redefine the roots of their earliest sound. The key
elements are still there, but the soundscapes are wider, the vocals are more powerful, and the music is pushed one step further. Far from view is
their first record, "Laments", a 6-track EP released in 2008 which drew attention from female-fronted metal critics and local press. While the EP
lacked production quality and featured mid-tempo shallow songs, it wasn't until 2009, when "The Light Ends" was released, that the band could
really show the musical direction they were heading for. It was simply a CD single, but received generally favourable reviews and allowed the quintet
to play live extensively. Not many people could imagine that most of the songs played during those tours wouldn't be taken into studio until
"The Negative Frame" is AoD's first full-length studio album, and it needed 3 years to see the light.
This concept album narrates the story of a patient in a coma, visited by a friend in his hospital room. This friend plays a vinyl album for him, in
which each of the songs relate to several dramatic episodes of the patient's life and eventually force him to reconsider the reasons why he fell
into coma in the first place.
"The Negative Frame" features the guest appeareance of vocalists like David M.E. (Death Whispers My Name) and Luis Alcázar (Com.pulsion), as well as
orchestrations performed by the University of Deusto Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Iñaki Moreno (Mike Oldfield). The band is now darker, more
complex, and more aggresive than ever. The music surrounds the listener and catches your attention immediately, dragging you into the depths of
someone's punished mind.
One of AoD's long-standing members, bassist David Martínez, left the band shortly before the release of "The Negative Frame" and was replaced by
Julia Bajo, frequent collaborator and close friend within the band. This marks the first time the classic line-up of the band undergoes changes.
AoD keeps working as an alchemy, still at the gloomy side of music...
