Prepare to be ensnared in the haunting embrace of PONTE DEL DIAVOLO as they unveil the first single, Demone, from their upcoming album Fire Blades From the Tomb. This dark collective, weaving a unique blend of Doom and Black metal with a touch of old school essence and a modern, avant-garde twist, is set to plunge you into a sonic abyss.

Led by Erba Del Diavolo‘s powerful vocals, echoing with strong new wave influences, PONTE DEL DIAVOLO constructs a mystical soundscape. The dual bass foundation laid down by Krhura & Kratom provides a massive platform for Nerium‘s rhythmic guitars, all underscored by Segale Cornuta‘s raw and dynamic drumming. This rare fusion creates the atmospheric allure that defines the ensemble.

Inspired by esoteric themes and mysticism, the lyrics of Demone paint a vivid picture,

He lives hidden inside the chest
like a disembodied God
awakened by desire
it will be the most sublime union.”

PONTE DEL DIAVOLO bridges the gap between two separate worlds.

The Italian band proposes a Doom / Black metal sound with old-school roots, adding a modern and outside the box background. The female voice – with strong dark wave influences – is the lyric corpus of this strongly esoteric project. The solid presence of two bassists creates the massive foundation for the rhythmic guitar, everything marked by a raw and dynamic drumming.

Mystery of Mystery / Secret live session marked the quintet’s debut EP. It was recorded live and without editing at Dracma Studio with the producer L’Ossario in their home base of Turin in March 2020. I was released on the web by Iopan Records. It was soon followed by their second-ever single, The Wickedest Woman In the World.

At the end of 2021, PONTE DEL DIAVOLO recorded their second EP, Sancta Menstruis at Deepest Sea Studio in Turin with Danilo Battocchio. The first single,  The Unborn, arrived in February 2022.

The band’s third EP, Ave Scintilla!, was also recorded in Turin. This time around, they reconvened at Dracma Studio with L’Ossario.

Now that they’ve signed with Season of Mist, PONTE DEL DIAVOLO are ready to release their debut album. Fire Blades From the Tomb  forges classic, cultish doom metal with modern bents of post-punk. Lead single and opening track Demone is whipped along by a boiled black bass line and dark-wave induced vocals.

Prepare to cross over into the Italian dark arts.
