"In Darkness They Whisper" is a title of new album and it will be the first one in "Cosmic Horror" series. Songs are inspired by the metaphysical, cosmological and occult concepts developed by HP Lovecraft in his books. Music combines elements from heavy and melodic space rock to dark and epic prog metal while staying true to Space Mirrors style which marked the first three albums. We have many great guitar and synth solos on it! This time Massimo Arke (Opposite Sides, Hortus Animae) and Fabio Bartolini (Hortus Animae, Hate Profile) joined the album line-up to record most of the guitars on new album. Sparky Simmons (Acid FM) joined the ranks of Space Mirrors as new guitarist after he recorded his powerful guitars for "Rue d'Auseil is Missing" instrumental track. Martyr Lucifer (Hortus Animae) sings all songs concentrating more on clean vocals this time.
We also got on this record: John Pack and Allen Welty-Green from Spaceseed play guitars and synths accordingly on several tracks, Alan Davey (of Hawkwind and Gunslinger fame) recording a powerful bass for 4 parts of the main epic song-suite, Nik Turner providing fabulous flute and sax again, Cyndee Lee Rule recording violin, Bjorn Jeppesen (Nattefrost) played synth solos in one song, we got many guest musicians. And Kevin Sommers is creating amazing artwork again!"

The new Space Mirrors album "The Other Gods" is the second in the "Cosmic Horror" series (and 5th in the band's discography) inspired by the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. It is a wonderful blend of dynamic space rock, prog metal and classic hard rock with influences not only from Hawkwind but also Blue Öyster Cult, Eloy and Black Sabbath! "The Other Gods" shows a further development in terms of sound and musicians' line-up with the recruitment of Claudio Tirincanti (Blaze Bayley, Tim "Ripper" Owens, etc.) to play all drums and Gabriel Monticello (Spaceseed, Albany Symphony Orchestra, etc.) to play bass on all songs. Sparky Simmons (Acid FM) recorded most of the guitars and Fabio Bartolini (Hate Profile) played guitars on one song. Martyr Lucifer delivered his best vocals’ performance to date. Bless (Hortus Animae) recorded some wonderful piano. Cyndee Lee Rule provided a violin string section and Dr. James Hodkinson (Shadowlight, Pre-Med) played mellotron and moog. The legendary Nik Turner (Hawkwind’s co-founder, Space Ritual, etc.) once more recorded sax and flute. Everything was done under the coordination of keyboardist Alisa Coral, the creator of Space Mirrors. Artwork and 12-page booklet were again created by Kevin Sommers. Space Mirrors again confirmed its international status by having in its ranks musicians from Italy, USA, UK and Russia!
