In The Company Of Serpents - Ain​-​Soph Aur

In The Company Of Serpents sound as though they have been listening to a lot of very early rock'n'roll and blues in addition to the requisite sludge and doom staples. The guitars alternate between the most distorted of stone-tones and a jangly brightness that, combined with the gargantuan groove, uncluttered progression, and ultimate indebtedness of sludge to blues (by way of doom), had me convinced I was listening to somebody feeding Link Wray through a wood chipper at first.

Enisum

After spending most of last year playing gigs in every corner of Italy and Europe, the band is now switching-off live activities until Spring 2017 (except of course the dates already booked, i.e.25-26.11 at the "Autumn from Hell" fest in Germany and Switzerland) to focus on the last bits of the new album's writing and then start recording. Their popularity increased exponentially after the wonderful 'Arpitanian Lands' (their 2nd album released in physical format after quite many digital-only releases): the D.I.Y. attitude in booking gigs everywhere a chance to play was offered eventually paid off, with the band soon being noticed also abroad by quite a few labels.
