Distinguished for their eclectic sound and inspiring live performances, the journey of Novus Cantus began in early 2004 with the collaboration of two brothers, Alex and Christian Herasimtschuk. Releasing their debut album in the summer of 2010, the music of Novus Cantus boasts a unique style that blends the traditional sounds of early music, Spanish guitar, and the hard rock influences of Metallica and Alice in Chains. The brothers first began performing at local coffeehouses near Vassar College and in downtown Poughkeepsie, eventually branching out to concert halls, colleges, art centers and churches throughout New York State. Alex and Christian have also brought their music to college venues, which include performances at SUNY
Geneseo, Russell Sage College and SUNY Albany. Novus Cantus is currently in the process of composing and recording new material, and planning their 2016 concert schedule

example, is about the power of nature and an experience Alex had living through a really challenging Winter in Syracuse, New York. He was inspired by the absolute energy of what he was seeing and what lay below the viscous white facade outside.
Other songs, like Despair which we are releasing this week, is very internally motivated
