SESTA MARCONI - WHERE THE DEVIL DANCES
METAL ON METAL RECORDS
Metal To Infinity
a name like this, itís obvious that this band is hailing from Italy!
Sesta Macaroni, Iím sorry, Marconi is a very surprising newcomer as far
as Iím concerned. This band
surprised me from the very first tones till closing track ĎBlasted In
Summertimeí! What a potential and
what a great arrangements. Sesta Marconi is the band that is experimenting with
older Doom Metal sounds and nowadays, modern technology and approach.
They have a fantastic vocalist called Sergio who succeeds in bringing the
lyrics in a non-Italian style. His vocal chords fit really well with the
instrumental exploration which means that the songs of Sesta Marconi are a real
disclosure and delight!
are 7 songs on ĎWhere The Devil Dancesí, and the anthem or masterpiece can
be picked out by the track ĎVanitas (The Leper Queen)í, which takes almost
12 minutes. Needless to say that we hear a lot of different musical directions
without losing grip on the original idea. This
band is one of the best Stoner / Doom / Metal bands that I have heard from Italy!
four guys of Sesta Marconi fit like a glove and the guitarwork of Stefano is
combined with the slowly dragging drumming part of Giuseppe, furthermore we get
a stomping bass of Nico. These four
men did their homework with bravura! Some might consider that doom metal is too
slow to listen to the whole time, but when you add enough variety, bring on
different angles or points of view; itís crystal clear that you will end up
with a product that will please the masses.
Sesta Marconi is the perfect example that an album can take 55 minutes
without one moment of boredom.
this is the bandís debut album, they already recorded an EP in 2008. If my
info is correct, some songs that featured on that EP are also recorded for this
first output. So, letís end this
review with a very positive quote: trumpet forth someoneís praises! http://www.myspace.com/sestamarconi
