Italy’s black/rock/doom metal outfit FORGOTTEN TOMB will release its sixth full-length album , entitled “…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil”, on October 30 in Europe and on November 6 in North America via Agonia Records.
More powerful and straight to the point, the CD begins where its antecedent — “Under Saturn Retrograde” — melodically ended. The directions of the new release may vary however over the last year’s offering, as the band submerges into more dark, horror-like regions and underground scenery, serving us a more steady and mature recording. FORGOTTEN TOMB is still obscure, melodic and still follows its own negative path — continuously experiencing with sound and imaginativeness. But as fans of the formation may already know, the Italian outfit is likely to surprise the listener during the long and complex compositions, smuggling mainstream-music elements and wise song-structures into the outwardly seamy and fearsome metal landscapes, making the obvious music sub-genres sound not that obvious anymore.
According to FORGOTTEN TOMB leader and songwriter Ferdinando “Herr Morbid” Marchisio, “…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil” is the most personal album he has written since 2004’s “Love’s Burial Ground” and it explores the darkest corners of his mind like never before, making it without any doubt one of the band’s more tortured and twisted offerings.
“…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil” was recorded in Elfo Studio in Italy by Daniele Mandelli and was mastered at Finnvox Studios (IMPALED NAZARENE, AMORPHIS, CHILDREN OF BODOM, FINNTROLL, HIM).
