And the fifth angel sounded a star had fallen to earth The pit of the abyss was opened smoking like a burning furnace the sun and air were darkened and locusts descended on earth much power was given to them by the earthen scorpions not to eat the green of the earth but to gorge those without the mark They will seek their own deaths with no way to find it They will desire to die And death will flee from them

about

In the book of Apocalypse there are 7 trumpets that announce disasters,
sufferings and death for the entire inhabitants of the world.
This destructive power of Brass has been forgotten by the human being that
tried to relegate these instruments for mild and frivolous music genres.
Ottone Pesante has rediscovered the ancient tradition of devastation and
with this second album "Apocalips" (two years later "Brassphemy set in
score") want to show that its obscure and relentless soul is ready to bring us
to the abyss once again.
So "Apocalips" means destruction of eardrums, but also self destruction of
Francesco Bucci (trombone) and Paolo Raineri (Trumpet) lips. Those lips that
are mistreated and stressed like never before, in order to bring this new way
for instrumental music for brass, to the extreme.
In these 9 new tracks, the connections with Metal are stronger and, at the
same time, there are connections with others musical worlds like
contemporary music, experimental, doom, jazzcore. All the compositions are
based on just the 2 voices of trombone and trumpet, but they are more
various and different.
The sound is more raw and heavier, due to the sound experimentation of the
brasses while the Beppe Mondini's drum is still really heavy.
You can find the fast, melodic, technical, furious tracks that are already
become a brand of this band, or really slow parts full of pathos, some more
experimental and dodecaphonic tunes, other "orchestral / progressive" tracks
and references to Black Metal.
The connections with Extreme Metal scene, comes out due to the
collaboration with Travis Ryan (incredible Cattle Decapitation singer, Death
Metal band from California) that makes track number 5 " The Fifth Trumpet", a
real Apocalypse.
Prepare your anti-atomic shelter: OTTONE PESANTE, the trio that was able to
receive respect from Jazz and Metal scenes at the same time, is about to
come back!
