Italian mesmerising doom metal act Messa announce that they have just signed with Svart Records.
Messa comments: “Spring is coming and so a new harvest draws near. We’re happy to announce that Messa have signed with Svart Records. It is an honor for us to join ventures with such a special and prestigious label. We are entering the studio next week to record our new album. More news will be coming soon.
We’d like to thank Aural Music for believing in Messa since the very first start and for the help throughout these years.”
Messa emerged on the first day of 2014. The extreme diversity of their musical background immediately proved to be essential in the construction of the band’s sound: prog, black metal, punk, dark ambient, jazz, blues and doom… all those influences have been channelled into a sonic cauldron that the band defines “Scarlet Doom”.
Messa plays obscure and evoking doom metal with a dark jazz twist. Deliciously haunting female vocals, rhodes piano and 70’s fuzz guitars combine to conjure a sound that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Windhand, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, The Devil’s Blood, Jex Thoth, Angelo Badalamenti, Bellwitch, Urfaust, John Coltrane and Aluk Todolo, the band has moved from the droning occult doom of their first LP »Belfry« to a new, darker and more atmospheric approach clearly showcased in their latest record »Feast For Water«, a concept album centered on the introspective, symbolic and ritual features of the liquid element.
