The second Frailty full-length album “Melpomene” 2012 (Arx Productions / P3lican). Frailty reveals that during the creation of this album it has turned into a dark contemplation about present, past and future, about reality and fantasy. The whole combination of these symbols lead the listener into the very heart of the music where melancholy meets the aggression and sorrow meets the storm. The meditations of darkness are going hand in hand with the epic hymns and the horrors of madness. The artwork for the new Frailty’s album “Melpomene” was intended to be something different to intentionally break the expectations associated with the cliches of how a decent Doom metal album artwork should look.
