Basick Signs is proud to announce the signing of Italian tech-core band Damned Spring Fragrantia to its increasing international roster. Taking musical influence from the likes of Ion Dissonance, The Chariot, and The Acacia Strain and mixing it up with a hardcore swagger, DSF take technical metal and crushing grooves to a whole new level. Check out the brand new track “D.M.Z.” below.

Italy’s Grime plays music just as their name implies: dirty-as-fuck, slow sludge metal. This stuff is heavy and at times monstrously slow with thick riffs and painfully screamed vocals. If you like your sludge slow and anguished, then pick this up! If you have a short attention span or only like your songs fast and furious, then skip it. For sludge fans these guys are a band to watch for sure. Especially recommended for fans of Eyehategod or Rwake.

Udine, Italy is home to a 5-piece band that plays some downright fierce metal. Jei Durisotti (vocals), Sanchez Santini (guitar), Carlo Ferraro (guitar), Giovanni Minozzi (bass) and Sasha Veselinovic (drums) came together to form Despite Exile and offer mean prog and deathcore music. It was their unique blend of powerful guitar melodies, death metal and jumpy breakdowns that created a stir on their 2010 debut EP Scarlet Reverie. Met with high critical claim, the buzz afforded Despite Exile the chance to begin touring more extensively all the while quickly growing their reputation.

By way of Torino, Italy, the experimental group Niagara released their self-titled EP on February 21st via Monotreme Records. The band’s members, Davide Tomat (Tomat, N.A.M.B., Gemini Excerpt), Gabriele Ottino (N.A.M.B, Milena Lovesick, Gemini Excerpt) and Diego Perrone (Caparezza, Medusa), would come together in 2007 with one common goal, to create a concept record based entirely on the movie ‘Niagara’. Now, in celebration of this new effort, we’ve teamed up with the guys to give away a free download of the song “Pacmen”.

I have said it before and I will say it again, the best part about writing for PureGrainAudio is the exposure that I get to artists I probably wouldn’t have otherwise heard of. Disease Illusion is one of these bands; there’s a good chance they would have totally slipped under my radar had it not been for this assignment.

Although Lacuna Coil’s style has always been immediately catchy, its music has never been too pretty for guys. In other words, it’s never tried to be a pop metal band. It hasn’t turned into one on new album Dark Andrenaline, either – but it comes close. There’s nothing wrong with that, but perhaps the group hasn’t fully come to terms with that musical route or it doesn’t even realize it’s following that orbit, because Andrenaline feels self-consciousness for some unexplainable reason.

Orbe was born in 2004 near Milan, Italy by people each with different musical backgrounds. Orbe is Andrea on drums, Andrea on guitar and synth, Juri on guitar and Fabio on bass and programming. The band worked hard to find a way to express themselves with their music and came to define their project as “Instrumental alternative rock”.
