4 out of 5 Stars!
Italian band Vitriol (also known as “Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultam Lapidem”…yeah, Vitriol is much easier to remember, guys) released an enjoyable EP in 2009, and finally Into the Silence I Sink, a full-length debut album in 2012.
Generally speaking, Vitriol’s music is moody and dark, highly atmospheric and often-intense Progressive Metal. And best of all, Vitriol has a rather unique overall sound, since no comparable groups immediately spring to mind when listening to the album.
So, Into the Silence I Sink is a bit different, with intriguing compositions, a powerful and engaging singer in Gabriele Gozzi, plus adept and rock-solid musicianship thanks to guitarist Fausto De Bellis, bassist Francesco Lombardo, and drummer Michele Panepinto.
I’m really looking forward to hearing what the band creates next.
