In Tormentata Quiete are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of folk, progressive and avant garde black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Cromagia" which will be released on November 17th by My Kingdom Music.
Progressive style synths start off the album along with some clean playing a few seconds later which also slowly leads up to a heavier direction along with a good amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after the intro there are some elements of electronic music being added into the mix.
When vocals are added into the music they start out with some clean melodic singing along with a good mixture of both male and female vocals and after awhile they start bringing in more grim black metal screams and you can also hear a great amount of prog metal influences in the bands musical sound along with some violins being added into certain sections of the recording and acoustic guitars have a very powerful sounding presence throughout the recording.
At times the music can be very avant garde and experimental and every song manages to sound different from each other along with a few long and epic tracks as well as a few instrumentals and when solos and leads are utilized they bring in more of a melodic sound to the bands musical style and the black metal influence gets even more powerful as the album progresses and on one of the tracks you can also hear some elements of death metal with the growls and a small amount of blast beats.
In Tormentata Quiete creates a very interesting style with their music taking the 90's avant garde black metal sound that a lot of Norwegian bands where doing back then and adding in a great amount of folk and progressive music to give their style more originality, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Italian dark and melancholic themes.
In my opinion In Tormentata Quiete are a very great sounding mixture of progressive, folk and avant garde black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "II Profumo del Blu" "Verde" "La Carezza del Giallo" and "La Visione del Nero". 8 out of 10.
