In the eighties and nineties, Italy spawned a big black mass of great horror doom bands, as the underground flourished with illustrious names like Death SS, Paul Chain, Black Hole, Sacrilege, Zess, Malombra, Cultus Sanguine, Epitaph and Abysmal Grief.
Abysmal Grief has been holding the burning torch of the underground high since 1996 and is considered to be today´s forefront of this cult movement! Abysmal Grief´s live performances takes you through a journey of the dark universe of horror, rituals and incantations. Their performances are so powerful and intense - it's a must see for the die-hard cult metal fan!
Two years after their last album Abysmal Grief uncovers their dusty coffin to reveal the 5th album of their haunted career. Horrific like claws drawing near your neck, "Blasphema Secta" embodies all the bleak elements that made Abysmal Grief a well renowned and respected band and represents a step further down the damned path leading to the sepulchre.
Last year Light Of The Morning Star released their highly anticipated debut album, Nocta. And for however much Nocta might seem like a new beginning, in another, more accurate sense, the sensations coursing through Light Of The Morning Star here continue the grand work cast by Cemetery Glow, their first EP. Still the work of one mysterious O-A, the hydra-headed kaleidoscope of sounds characteristically encompasses trace elements of hypnotic deathrock, molten doom, and atmospheric black metal. Within this bewitching cauldron, its contents are stirred to such an extent that not only is easy categorization nigh impossible, but this panoply of paranormal sonics bespeaks only Light Of The Morning Star.
