SELVANS, a band known for combining music, lyrics and aesthetics in such a way as to recreate the folklore of Italy’s ancient peoples, released their debut full-length album “Lupercalia” on Avantgarde Music in October of this year. Recorded at the Faunalia Studios and in Patrizio Tamborriello’s Soluzioni Audio, the album’s lineup comprises Selvans Haruspex on keyboards, traditional instruments, vocals and programming, and Sethlans Fulguriator on guitars and bass.
Unusually, the CD version of the album is released in A5 format in order to better display the artwork of Diletta of E.B.A. Art, whose collaboration with the band has brought to life the original designs created by frontman Selvans Haruspex. Also available digitally, as well as a Limited Edition boxed version which sold out in 60 hours, “Lupercalia” is composed of six tracks coming in at an average of ten minutes each, and is a follow up to the five-track EP “Clangores Plenilunio”, which was also released on Avantgarde Music in February of this year.
Tracklisting for “Lupercalia” as follows:
3- O Clitumne!
4- Hirpi Sorani

A video tribute to SELVANS co-founder the late Jonny Morelli, who was tragically killed in a motor bike accident, and which shows the wild landscapes that the drummer loved so much, whilst his words, which were written for the song ‘Lupercale’ itself, have been transformed into drawings by Davide ‘DARTWORKS – drawstroy’ Mancini , can be seen below:
