Fuoco Fatuo - Backwater & Obsidian Katabasis (Tape)
On November 14 Caligari Records released the first two EP's of Italian doom band Fuoco Fatuo in one tape. Both recordings were released in 2012.
Here for your streaming pleasure you can enjoy them fully, starting off with the EP 33 Colpi Di Schizophrenia Astralle Nell'Abisso Nero which goes from Alpha to Omega and finishing with their self-titled EP which goes from track 6 to 9.
Fuoco Fatuo was born in 2011, in the middle of the ghastly lakes of Varese, Italy. Starting out as an occult and oppressive death / doom band with an eerie and gloomy debut album The Viper Slithers In The Ashes Of What Remains, which followed several EPs, they explore the darkest and most desolate spaces through a sickened development of sound, like a flood of impenetrable black magma. Their new album Backwater is a massive and suffocating funeral doom opus, focused on the distressing awareness of the nothingness, transcendence in the oblivion, and feeding on the black void. The relationship between the state of mind and nature, desolation, and the vast sense of distance are also main themes. An introspective, mournful journey, deeply rooted into the unknown.
With their latest opus Obsidian Katabasis, Italian doom metal cult Fuoco Fatuo have implemented their most towering, suffocating, darkest and most abstract work yet. Following up their massive 2017 release Backwater, which saw the band morph into a more monstrous entity by heightening their doom metal paradigm into more funeral-like realms where their sound became more amalgamous with the likes of such luminaries as Disembowelment, Tyranny, and Esoteric, Obsidian Katabasis sees the band venture even further into the otherworldly obscure undiscovered dimension. Elements of a dreadful nature which find cohesion for a rich and thick sound manifest into a visionary descent though multi-layered guitars, skullcrushing low-tuned chords and sepulchral tremolos filtered through analog sounds for wider landscapes marred with obsessive drumming and infernal growls.
