† About †
La Morte Viene Dallo Spazio (Death Comes From Space)’s name is taken from a late 50s Italian sci-fi b-movie. This ensemble’s cinematic odyssey of sound is like Argento, Fulci and Bava taking acids with Magma and Jodorowsky. A solid departure from anything you will be listening to right now, La Morte Viene Dallo Spazio’s free-form journeys leave you in unknown astral territory and bake your brain.
Composed of an open gathering of players, the Italian quintet combines flavours of Middle Eastern scales, droning theremin and guitars. Their flute-player’s frantic, progressive and abstract elements tear open the cosmic gates like Jethro Tull in a Giallo nightmare. The first album, ‘Sky Over Giza’, released in 2018 by Bloodrock Records and Debemur Morti Productions, is a synth laden soundscape full of ancient mysticism and alien apparitions which gained them a rabid following in Italy - their home country - and beyond.
La Morte Viene Dallo Spazio’s second album on Svart Records, ‘Trivial Visions’, is a wholly unique experience. An enthralling listen in a confluence of sound and ritual atmospheres that craft a both vibrant and hypnotic effect with nods to black metal and extreme ends of the sound spectrum. This vivid, dreamy and cosmic material will transfer the listener to vast sonic dimensions where one could easily lose the way back to reality.
