L'IRA DEL BACCANO "Si Non Sedes Is" (2008)

The Italian psychedelic doom metal band L'IRA DEL BACCANO released their debut album as a free download in 2008. The album "Si Non Sedes Is" was recorded fully live in concert on Hallows Eve of 2007. This five-track presents the essence of what talented musical craftsmanship and instrumental excellence can accomplish.

The musical recipe of this Roman foursome
is a very rich one. Being an instrumental act they have grasped the opportunity to be more creative and loose in their song constructions. Both when it comes to letting groove roam and in getting into jam like states. Melodic paths adjoined with resilience, bring together a sound best described as a passionate cosmic roar. 

The second track, 875, starts gentle as a caress. As the eleven minutes proceed, the psychedelic guitar sheds noises on top of the rhythm and melodic guitar, serving the listener a chance to drift away. These guitars entwined with the safe sway of the bass are held together by one of the most monumental drumming I've ever heard. From the intensity of the beat and its variety of paces, to the mood of the sound; hollow yet energy-filled.

I can't stress enough the importance of what excellent drumming enables. For L'IRA DEL BACCANO the prominent drums enable the melodic highlights to sprung, bloom and create their own shape. Eighteen minute Tempus Inane Flago, Requiem Spatiumque Furori leads the listener into intriguing twists and turns, however always maintaining the attention throughout with a juicy and hellish force. Go to their website, download the album, indulge - and come back to thank me.
