MORTUARY DRAPE

Italy
  • Day 1
  • Stage #1

 

It is no secret that, despite (or possibly due to) the strong presence of the Catholic Church in the society, Italy has been the epicentre of a strong occult activity and legend has it that Mortuary Drape, more than any other Italian band before them, are taking part in that current. Those of us who lived the late 80´s and early 90’s underground scene, certainly recalls the rumours around the cover of their debut album, “All The Witches Dance”. Whether it is a real corpse that the band has dug up itself for ritualistic purposes (and worth the photography) or not, the truth is that – over the last 32 years – they never stopped sounding like one of the first black metal bands whose goes far beyond the sonic realm and transforms itself into something far more powerful.
