HISS FROM THE MOAT
NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS / LACERATED ENEMY RECORDS
Coming from the dark depths in Italy emerges the madness that is HISS FROM THE
MOAT. These guys play some really intense, cruel and harsh Black / Death Metal music.
The band features members of HOUR OF PENANCE, STIGMA, THE END OF SIX
THOUSAND YEARS and AWAKEN DEMONS. This three piece band sounds like they
have twenty guys in the band by the huge and massive wall of sound they have created.
The music tends to pull it's influences from old school Black and Death Metal music from
the '90's European, French & Italian scenes. They kind of have this thick aggressive and
dirty raw sound that reminded me of the old demo trading days. Their Death Metal
influences are mostly old school brutal Death Metal in the vein of '90's Floridian &
Swedish Death Metal with some slight technical Death Metal also mixed in. These guys
have such a killer old school vibe that it kept taking me back to the days before the
Internet and you really had to search out new bands. The vocals are done in a crossover
style of Black / Death Metal as well with some low ended Death Metal growls mixed with
mid ranged groggy Black Metal growls. The thick rawness and cold harsh elements pull in
the old Black Metal sound almost like POSSESSED meets VENOM meets
BEHEMOTH. If you are a fan of these three bands as well as HOUR OF PENANCE,
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, GOD DETHRONED and VADER then your gonna love
HISS FROM THE MOAT!!!
