Singer and bassist Edward Green has been carrying his musical ideas and visions around for a very long time, when he finally decided to form NOVA SKELLIS in 2018. The singer is silent about the exact meaning of the band's name. Thus, we can only assume that in addition to the phonetic euphony the adequate terms "new" and "skills" also played a role.

At the latest since the Phantom Reunion Show 2018 at the Legions Of Metal Festival, the vocalist of the US METAL band has tasted blood again. Almost at the same time, Phantom's "Cyberchrist" album and as well the new single "The Violence Of Twilight" were released on vinyl via Metalloscope Music.

The response to these releases did not only cause an awakening of the fans. Also Edward Green, known to many only under his stage name 'Falcon Eddie', received a motivational boost to finally become active again.

He got in contact with the German drummer Jörg Quaquil (ex-Tharn, ex-Living Fast) and the Italian guitarist Alex Spalvieri (ex-Hellblaze, ex-Necromant, ex-Bad Moon Caravan). The trio decided to record four songs together, which were released digitally in 2022.

The feedback on this first sign of life was so strong and positive that the band completed the recording of a full album later that year.

"Life Amongst The Damned" contains ten tracks in the best US Metal tradition. In addition to typical powerful numbers like "Fall In Line", "Mother, May I?" and "Gods To Strike You Down" there are also other shades on the album. So "All The Comfort Of A Graveyard" is a fascinating dark and doomy track. "Something Wicked This Way Comes" carries a 1970s charm, while "Skull Full Of Bees" shows NOVA SKELLIS from a more speedy side.

Each song has its own face and makes sure that the debut album is a traditional, heavy and varied release.

With "Life Amongst The Damned" NOVA SKELLIS prove that neither spatial separation nor language barriers hinder when the thought of Metal unites!
