The band stated: “Angellore really feels honored & proud to be part of Aural Music/DreamCell11 roster.

Things are really taking a start now!”
Dreamcell11 A&R WORM stated: “When I listened to this album for the first time I felt the emotions that the real doom metal bands that I loved in past have been able to create…I have always been a doom metal fanatic, and I will never stop supporting the bands that really believe into this elitarian music genre … Like Angellore do. This album will make you dream, fly, cry, smile and you will understand the difference between truly inspired music and the commercially driven releases that are infesting the market nowadays…Support this band, you won’t regret it.”

Italian Gothic Metal band Levania have signed a deal with Dreamcell11/Aural Music Group for the release their debut album “Parasynthesis”.
The album, that includes 10 very original tracks with a sound never listened before, was recorded and mixed in December 2010 at Zenith Recording Studios in Italy and produced by Frank Andiver. The mastering was taken care of Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Finland. The artwork and photos for the album was made by Patrizia Cogliati of Musicphoto Designs.
Levania is enthusiastic to annunce the signing with Dreamcell11 of Aural group. For us it’s the best opportunity to make known to all the world who we are and listen to it how deep is our sound. After some years playing and three demos recorded in studio, under label Dreamcell11, it will be released our first full lenght album entitled “Parasynthesis”.
Parasynthesis is a conceptual synthesis that expresses the essence of the notion of gothic-metal, a sort of definition of the absolute meant as a union of opposites in a complementary dichotomy in love-death that has its roots in the twentieth century and romanticism.
The two opposites that can be seen in the various songs on the album are not static but rather charged with different tones and details gradually, starting from a lack of erotic boost seen as the beginning of everything (Agharti I), through a wild and emotional research about what is missing from our completeness (Agharti II, Basteth’s Kiss,Midnight of Silence), through anger (The Narrow Way of Juliette, Carthago Nova), despair (Sibyl of the Dark), beliefs (Natural Motion) and the acceptance of this absence (Agharti III, Eroica) until you reach a sort of rapture limbo where the absence is satisfied only in our hearts, where the Seeker takes refuge from the outside world. Parasyntesis just tells us in this long inner journey through a quest that will never end, because that will coincide with the end goal of research, mixed blessing of our ego.

Spanish band Niobeth announced the end of the their activity due to personal problems.
Here at Dreamcell11 we would like to wish all the band members all the best for the future.
The hard work done together will remain as a proof of this profitable cooperation both with the European (Dreamcell11) and Japanese (Rubicon Music) versions of the album “Silvery Moonbeams” that is still on sale.
“More than 6 years ago I started an ambitious project with resolution. All this time, I have lived a lot of moments that have filled me with satisfaction, thanks specially to all of you ho have supported me and have enojyed my creations: it has been really fascinating. These years have allowed me to know a lot of people who are great professionals and it´s really worth working with them. In this time, I have named each of the Níobeth albums, putting my soul on it and filling with passion music and lyrics for them, the artistic design, web design and in the management of lots of aspects related to tours, promotion, the Japanese and European releases and the music itself, among others, taking care of each detail. Most of the days of these 6 years I have dedicated more hours to the band than to any other activity, and it has been really satisfying. Today, the feeling is really painful to have to announce the end of Niobeth.
I won´t go very deep into the details. The inner situation in the band turned unsustainable several months ago. Since late Summer, suddenly, I started to be verbally attacked, insulted and threatened by two of my band partners; for me, it was impossible to recognize in them the persons with who I have shared so many things these years. Dialogue didn´t solve anything. On the contrary: the process turned surlier gradually, getting even to the retention from their side of band´s money destined to cover promotion and recording expenses, among others. Before this deplorable situation, the break up of the band has been the only way out, as well as the canellation of the whole tour. It hasn´t been a friendly break up. The label asked me to continue, as I have the rights to, but, given that this is a project Itea and I started together, if we cannot go on together, it must end. This is a great grief, but also an enormous relief of ending the tension and discomfort that had grown up these months among us.
Personally, I feel deeply fascinated and moved by all the support and love I have received from family, friends, musicians and fans, both from close people and from people and almost don´t know in person. You are wonderful people. Thank you sincerely. Music is a precious dream for me, that allows me to express in an unique and specially intimate way. It is inside me and expressing it, creating, is a need. Being able to share it, a privilege. Is for this reason that I´m going to go on with new projects in which I´m already working in with a lot of hope and will.
Finally, I want to send a huge thanks to all the people that have supported and helped me all this time: to press media and radio stations, to friends, to guest musicians, to institutions, to labels and to the fans and followers that so many times have made me smile with your support and your comments, applause, hugs, e-mails and postcards. We will meet very soon. Meanwhile, don´t stop painting your dreams with silvery moonbeams. Jesús“
