I’m really thrilled to bring you this premiere as I’m digging the hell out of Italian atmospheric metal band Nero Di Marte. Their ability to craft an oppressive, eerie mood is, in my opinion, heightened and not harmed by the inclusion of rage-fueled metal. “Dite” is a song that I can imagine being the soundtrack to the approach of Lovecraft-ian gods as they emerge from the sea and descend from the heavens.
“Dite” comes from the band’s upcoming album Derivae, the follow-up to their self-titled 2013 release, which received critical acclaim. Derivae comes out 10/27 (North America & UK/EU) and 11/1 (G/A/S). Pre-orders can be found here.
Three years in the making, “Derivae” was recorded, mixed and mastered using 100% analog and without use of any digital post-processing with Riccardo “Paso” Pasini at Studio73 (Ephel Duath, Void of Sleep).
