Anna Varney Cantodea is the voice and soul behind Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows, who cannot simply be summed up in one blog post. Rather take this as a basic primer into entering her tortured yet beautiful world.
Every nuance of every release — from the first note to the last — to the visuals, poetry and quality, that goes into each piece of art is second to none. I don’t even think another artist like her exists on this planet.
Her back catalogue spans three decades and each piece of art released is a journey into her transformation.
Again a simple blog post cannot do her justice. It is something that you have to willingly experience for yourself.
So take this journey, that is scary and harrowing but at the same time enlightening.
