We are proud to announce that we have started to work on our second album. Now the world has been cleansed by our first album "zondvloed" mankind should prepare itself for "Hoe koud het was". It will be brutal and relentless but not without beauty. The album will be about the loss of humanity in its many forms and will leave you alone and cold in the dark.....

And then, out of nowhere, there's a review of our debut album. As the review comes from an unbiased source and is fairly positive I guess Libethra can now be considered awesome officially. Sincerely yours: Libethra…/…/Libethra-Zondvloed.html

Wij zijn op zoek naar een nieuwe slaggitarist. Qua stijl moet je denken aan Opeth, Anathema en My dying bride. Wij maken muziek met veel dynamiek en gebruiken afwisselend clean vocals en grunts. De nummers hebben vaak een progressieve invalshoek (maar wij hebben niet de intentie om alleen enorm technische muziek te produceren). Op dit moment zijn wij bezig een demo op te nemen waarna een van onze gitaristen Libethra helaas zal verlaten. Wij zoeken iemand met een steile leercurve die goed strak kan spelen en houdt van onderaardse, sfeervolle muziek. Wij oefenen op vrijdagen in Rotterdam. Als jij geïnteresseerd bent, stuur dan een bericht naar (bijgevoegde geluidsfragmenten om jouw stijl te illustreren worden enorm gewaardeerd).

After the recordings of the debut album of Libethra "Zondvloed" sadly Chris will leave Libethra as a band member. Since the last few months it proved to be very hard for Chris to combine his professional life with the band. Therefore Chris was forced to make this difficult decision. By recording "Zondvloed" we will face the challenge to summarize two years of fruitful cooperation in little less then 40 minutes of audio.

After careful consideration Wouter decided to not continue as Libethra's bassist as he needed to focus on his study. We all wish you best of luck in your future (musical) ventures! Sander will now take the honours of being the bassist of Libethra.

Libetha started working on its first album. This album will be better adapted to be performed live when compared to the previous recordings of TijaD. The songs will be more tailored around guitar riffs and will contain less layers of organs, violins and such. We don't want to spoil to much information yet, but the album will be named "Zondvloed". The lyrics will be about the complex relationship The Netherlands has with the North sea that can be both giving and deadly.
