Totally ROCKING "Retrogarde" Black / Death Metal!
Italian not-so-new-comers OLTRETOMBA (which translates to ‘underworld’), make their triumphant Moribund Debut with their second full-length album, "THE HORROR - Figure del Terrore". Old school in sound & style, raw and aggressive, even outright rocking (did someone say more cowbell?), OLTRETOMBA will have every-one head banging to their phenomenal offerings! The most rocking, catchy Black Metal since Craft or early Dark Throne OLTRETOMBA doesn’t stop there. Digging deep into the stygian past, they also incorporate the primal brutality captured by Finland’s 1st wave of Death Metal ala Demigod, Belial & Demilch!
OLTRETOMBA dispense diabolically catchy riff after riff, perfect bass, sick vocals with Black Metal melody accompanying deathly growls and a phenomenal drum performance which includes booming thunder drums and more cowbell than Blue Oyster Cult and Dark Throne combined! OLTRETOMBA also integrates flugelhorn bass, cello and other classic instruments alongside precisely executed, backwards guitar scales.
OLTRETOMBA have honed their style to perfection, culminating in one of the darkest, horror filled journeys the Black / Death Metal scene has ever offered in its 30+ years! With no bells (outside of percussion), no whistles (besides those of the Nameless Occultist), and nothing plastic or pre-molded, OLTRETOMBA claim their well-secured seat at the Pentagonal Table of the world-wide Metal scene! Worship OLTRETOMBA's diabolical "Retrogarde Metal" !!
