Fuoco Fatuo/The Viper Slithers In The Ashes of What Remains/Caligari Records/2014 Cassette Review


  Fuoco  Fatuo  are  a  band  from  Italy  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black  metal,  doom  and  sludge  and  this  is  a  review  of their  2014  cassette  "The  Viper  Slithers  In  The  Ashes  Of  What  Remains"  which  was  released  by  Caligari  Records.

  The  cassette  starts  out  with  dark  sound  effects  and  after  a  couple  of  minutes  the  music  goes  into  an  early  90's  doom/death  metal  sound  along  with  some  growls  and  after  awhile  dark  soudning  melodies  make  their  way  into  the  recording.

  When  the  cassette  goes  into  other  songs the  band  sticks  mostly  to  a  doom/death  metal  direction  while  also  bringing  in  elements  of  sludge  and  black  metal  which  can  be  heard  mostly  in  the  mid  paced  parts  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording.
\
  With  this  recording  Fucoco  Fatuo  go  for  more  of  the  early  90's  doom/death  metal  sound  while  still having  some  small  amounts  of  black  metal  and  sludge  and  they  create  a  sound  that  is  very  heavy,  dark  and  old  school,  with  this  cassette.

  Song  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  desolation  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  heavy,  dark  and  old  school  sound  along  with  all  of  the  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Fuoco  Fatuo  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  old  school  doom/death  metal  with element s of  black  metal  and  sludge,  you  should  check  out  this  cassette.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ancestral  Devouring  Anxiety"  and  "Eternal  Transcendence  Into  nothingness".  8/5  out  of  10.
