Italy's Fuoco Fatuo are an elusive entity in European extreme metal, creators of an aphotic and otherworldly strain of hallucinatory and ultra-suffocating funeral doom that has few equals around. Over the last few years both of these pachydermic albums have set a new standard of extremism and opened the gates to a completely unexplored realm of heaviness and sonic oppression that has established Fuoco Fatuo as one of the most cataclysmic and inhumanly crushing bands to have emerged in the European extreme metal underground in recent years.
