Adorned by artwork from an artist simply known as View From The Coffin, Italian Doom Sludge Metal stalwarts Griefbringer will be releasing their debut album, “The Horrible Wilting” on 18th November via Church of Crow Records. The trio comprising Luca Frazzoni (guitars, vocals), Andrea Zanetti (bass, vocals) and Dario Casabona (drums) are well known to the scene having spent the majority of the past three decades in bands like Momentum, Haunted, Schizo and Hell Obelisco as they go on to explain, but before they do, here’s the first taste in “Disfigurement“.
The band comment: “We’re all from the gloomy and dark side of the Italian scene, with 30 years of international experience in bands such as MONUMENTUM, HAUNTED, SCHIZO, HELL OBELISCO, just to name a few.
Collaboration with the previous projects convinced us to get together and explore the depth of the soul in this new creature. Darkness and godliness of places and images are our most important source of inspiration.
After years of recording and mixing and mastering and sacrificial offers to the gods of dusk we’re ready to finally unleash ‘The Horrible Wilting’. The beast has been mastered by the Grammy winner Giovanni Versari at La Maestà studio, plus reamp by Marco Mastrobuono at Kick Recording Studio and recording, mixing and wisdom by Marco Paradisi at Boat Studio. 8 fresh new songs, 8 chances to freak out. Enjoy“.
Pre-orders are available over at bandcamp.
