Scuorn Unveils Lyric Video For “Viriglio Mago”

SCUORN was born to worship the cult of Parthenope by revealing the most ancient legends and history of the mysterious Neapolitan lands, known over the centuries for their hellenic and roman origins and for being fervent cradle of the Italian culture.

The epic black metal atmospheres, strongly influenced by the world famous “canzone napoletana”, and the sound of traditional folk instruments melt with majestic orchestrals and evocative lyrics in native language, express the concept of the band at its best.

Founded in Naples (Italy) in 2008 by Giulian (Vocals, All Instruments & Orchestral Arrangements), SCOURN (which means "shame" in Neapolitan language) will soon release the debut album “PARTHENOPE”, recorded, mixed and mastered at 16th Cellar Studio by Stefano “Saul” Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Theatres des Vampires).

Very special guest on the album is the “maestro” Riccardo Studer from Italian extreme epic metal pioneers STORMLORD, who shaped an impressive orchestra who reminds of bands such as DIMMU BORGIR and SEPTICFLESH for epicness and greatness.

The concept album is focused on the most ancient greek-roman origins of Naples, and each song is related to a specific legend from those times, such as the 79 a.d. volcano Vesuvio’s eruption who destroyed Pompeii and many others.

On September 19, 2016 the Parthenopean Epic Black Metal act SCUORN unveils lyric video for the song “Viriglio Mago”, the second track from the upcoming debut album “PARTHENOPE”, out worldwide at the beginning of 2017 via

The legend of “Virgilio Mago” is based on the famous poet Publius Vergilius Maro, arguably believed to be a visionary clairvoyant by the neapolitans, who later proclaimed his pagan legendary figure as spiritual patron of Naples. His obscure magic was always used to benefit and help the city and its population, and invoked in times of famine, drought, plague and disease, and thus his mysterious oracle was never forgotten.

Official Lyric Video produced by the Italian artist Goffredo Passi at EstremArte videoproduzioni.

Featuring special guest orchestrals by Riccardo Studer from Italian Extreme Epic Metal pioneers Stormlord and guest narrated vocals by Daniele Ogre Cristiano in the role of Publius Vergilius Maro.
