Italian atmospheric doom metal band (EchO) reveal the third single »Fate Takes Its Course« taken from their upcoming album »Witnesses«

Italian atmospheric doom metal band (EchO) has revealed the third single »Fate Takes Its Course« taken from their upcoming album, »Witnesses«, set to release on November 25th, 2022 via Black Lion Records.

Vocalist Fabio Urietti comments: “Like many others, I suffered loneliness in the last two years, but here’s a different matter. As we have not been able to process what was taking place in our lives, we were not given any possibilities to be able to start again. The individual, in a rudderless world, fells even more alone. No space for weakness, no space for recovery. To lead exclusively by rage and inner forces, each one of us has done his journey.”

Black Lion Records present the Italian atmospheric doom/death metal group (EchO)’s upcoming album, »Witnesses«, scheduled for 25 November 2022 on CD and digital.

Formed in 2007, Brescia unit (EchO) has gradually established itself as one of the strongest forces in the Italian underground doom metal scene with two self-produced demos, three acclaimed full-lengths, and incessant live activities across Italy and Europe.

»Witnesses«, the 4th full-length album of (EchO), was written through the first lockdown imposed for the pandemic in 2020 and finished in the following summer and autumn. Although it’s not a concept album, lyrics written by singer and lyricist Fabio Urietti reflect the distress and the overall feeling the whole band had during those strange and alienating days. In a nutshell, the album is a collection of images and thoughts – sometimes more explicit, sometimes more ambiguous.

The album features four guest musicians, Francesco Bassi on Drums, Heike Langhans (ex-Draconian) on vocals, Alex Högbom (October Tide) on vocals, and Don Zaros (Evoken) on keys.
