Abysmal Grief

Italy is once again the focus, but this time it is the classic Italian Horror-Doom of Abysmal Grief. Though a relatively new band, Abysmal Grief invoke the sinister occult vibes of fellow countrymen Jacula, Death SS, Jess Franco, and Mario Bava. Haunted castles, clandestine seances, cobwebbed hallucinations, and the robust druggy breasts of an innocent girl lured into the sanguine rituals of sadistic, satanic noblemen. All of this is conjured by the towering sounds of Abysmal Grief. Enter if you dare. Released on beautiful vinyl and CD by the extremely awesome Black Widow Records.

Love these guys: I'll have to check out Jakula and those other bands you mentioned-- any that are particularly good?

I'm also a huuuge fan of gothic and Italian horror. So just the cover art is giving me an aesthetic hard-on. The write-up just brings it over the edge. Really going to enjoy this. Thank you so much.

Holy Ravioli! This album has made my month. I don't know if I've ever listened to a 12 minute song so many times in a row. Thanks Aesop!

this is so wonderfully nerdy. It really makes me fondly remember my tendem Magic: The Gathering/Sabbath phase. Fine, who I am I kidding, that shit's here to stay. Only I'll include this in the soundtrack. Totally owns! Thanks Aesop.
