The band Capitollium was created in year 2000 A.D. in Ukraine (Lviv) under the attractive influence of the cold stones of a gothic cemetery by st. Julius - the only member and composer of the project (-ex. Molphar, -ex. Liturgy for Nosferatu, -ex.Apostate). In 2000 the first demo material was recorded - the "Undivine Antipathy". In year 2002 "Symphony of Possession" demo was recorded consequently. The total running time of the recordings is 28 and 60 minutes. All music is in symphonic black metal style. The material on the "UA" is more brutal than on the "SoP" where are more melodies and dark harmonies. Capitollium is inspired by the mystic aspects of life and beauty of gothic times, especially by the gothic architecture. Actually the music style of the band can be called Liturgy Church Metal because there are many elements of the middle ages and cathedral music in their material. Both albums were recorded on Capitollium Recs., composed, designed and performed by st. Julius. In 2002 a distribution label was found - Oupiric productions (Russia). In October 2002 the first band’s release - "Undivine Antipathy" MC was produced by the label.
