COLOSSO from Portugal are playing some unique death metal that is brutal yet futuristic. They have the drummer of label mates Norse playing on all the songs, at inhuman speeds no less, and four different vocalists have been recruited to lend a different, refreshing sound to each of the songs depicting the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Check out the song ‘War’ that’s streaming now on Bandcamp.
After years of toiling in the underground, putting out six releases of ever-evolving death metal, COLOSSO have conjured up their finest and partnered with our label to put out their newest and easily their most ambitious one yet. Based on the concept of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, founding member Max Tomé has recruited different vocalists for each song to give them their own identity and it helps that they’re reputed figures in the Portuguese underground namely – Guilherme Henriques of Oak and Gaerea, Diogo Santana of Analepsy, and Sérgio Afonso of Bleeding Display. Furthermore, to lend a human element to this futuristic album, Robin Stone of Norse has taken over the drumming duties, with Alexandre Ribeiro of Grog fulfilling the bass responsibilities, while Max Tomé does the rest. The result is a breathtaking and refreshingly diverse album showcasing the myriad aspects of this bold and innovative death metal band without compromising on their aggressive, apocalyptic sound.
