Dewfall is a pagan black metal band from South Italy.
"Hermeticus" is composed of a powerful and evoking sound coming from oldschool european roots. The concept merges history, nature and literature in a symbolic portrait tributing the esoteric myth of the Emperor Frederick II, the medieval Suevian sovereign better known as “Stupor Mundi”, who ruled for a long time in Italy and mysteriously marked Apulian culture. The work is a personal metaphor bearing the ancient hermetic heritage of the band’s homeland, connected with traditional atavistic heathendom. The story is narrated through eight songs composing two main historical and spiritual chapters and is also performed with several Latin and medieval Italian Poetry inserts.
