THE BLACK - GORGONI
BLACK WIDOW RECORDS
Metal To Infinity
We received several full CDís from
Black Widow records and Iíd like to thank these guys for it. Itís a matter
of respect if the labels are willing to send us a full album. After all we, as
review writers, spend a lot of time in making reviews. We have to search on the
Internet for more information if the band is unknown to us, we need to listen
several times to the CDís no matter you like or dislike themÖ Be sure not
every album I receive is good enough to be added in my collection.
Next in row is The Black and the intro
is strong en mysterious enough to maintain my attention. This isnít the first
album of this Italian band but I doubt the band is well known in the Metal scŤne.
The band delivers some kind of Doom Metal, a brand for this label by the way.
Influenced by the old Black Sabbath this band delivers us one after another old
and traditional Metal sounding song. By the vocals and some musical elements the
band tries to get the right atmosphere into their music and they receive in
their goal. Nevertheless I have to admit Iíve heard better bands in this genre
of old sounding obscure Doom Metal and certainly fans of The Black shouldnít
doubt trying this one out. Here and there some Progressive slices are added
into the songs. Donít bother the fact these guys are delivering Italian lyrics,
I didnít anyway. This kind of obscurity is wanted by a select public and
therefore The Black deserves itís place in this specific part of our movement.
As far as I know thereís a special vinyl edition of this album too, makes it
even more obscure. Not bad if youíre into it. Check the band out at http://www.myspace.com/theblackatratus.
