Dolorosa - Summoning Ancient Bleakness LP
Dolorosa, a new project from Gaua's mastermind, presents "Summoning Ancient Bleakness" as its debut release. Grounded in the 90's Black Metal tradition, echoing "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" early Dissection and early Gorgoroth (just to name a few), it pays homage to its influences while pushing boundaries.
Channeling a fiery intensity linked to its spiritual roots, "Summoning Ancient Bleakness" displays an 8 song framework imbued with different dynamics and vibrant vigor, built on a perfect blend of guitar riffs and melodies with a robust and powerful drumming performance. On top of that, the vocals present a captivating and authentic rendition that thoroughly and brilliantly merges with the music.
Mixed and mastered at The Empty Hall Studio (Grifteskymfning, Odz Manouk, Aversio Humanitatis, Ostots, etc.) and proudly released by Altare Productions and Amor Fati Productions in an 12" LP edition, "Summoning Ancient Bleakness" stands as a Black Metal master work — a stark and nihilistic monument to pure devotion.
Black 12" LP, with a 12 page A5 booklet.
