OvO - Abisso LP
OvO are surely an underrated duo from Italy who brave untrodden territory in extreme music; most usually through drone, doom, dub, tribal and noise elements.
"Abisso" is basically a descent into horror and madness.
Starting with outright catchy and sludgey bangers Tokoloshi and I Cannibali (think of a tribal celebration with a guitar so downtuned it sounds like a bass), we slowly become more and more exposed to nightmarish hellscapes. These become apparent through tracks like A Dream Within a Dream (featuring Khanate/OLD's Alan Dubin on vocals) and the title track.
This is for anyone who likes doom/sludge with a good layer of horror on top.
