Retro death metallers Fulci announce new album
I've heard a fair bit about Fulci and I am not too proud to say it's taken a long time to get around to checking them out, however, as news of their new album hit my inbox I took the opportunity to check it out and I'm glad I finally took the plunge.
The band, for those like me who are new to them, combine their love of death metal and Lucio Fulci horror movies (hence the name). The result is an old school feeling, eerie and unique sound, wrapped around crushing, premium death metal, this is especially present on this upcoming release I have been lucky enough to hear (after a cycle through their back catalogue).
The new record Exhumed Information, the bands third full length, releases July 23rd via Time To Kill Records. The album is based on the film "Voices from Beyond” (1991). a rather obscure and less praised piece of film from Luci shot in the final (low budget) phase of his career, nevertheless, it still oozes those old school horror vibes through and through.
A lot of the new record sounds like legendary composer John Carpenter joining Bolt Thrower if you can imagine such a thing.
"Exhumed Information" is a very intriguing chapter in FULCI’s discography, as the album has been structured in two parts that explore all the facets of the FULCI sound. The A-side is purely death metal while the B-side has been conceived as a movie soundtrack. All the synth parts were written and performed specifically for FULCI by the electro / soundtrack project TV-CRIMES. This side in particular embodies a reverberating sense of eeriness, danger and fear: the brooding sound feels dangerously unsettling, lacing its churning atmosphere with catchy melodies that travel right through your ears to your central nervous system.
The first single taken from the album is one of the aforementioned collabs with TV-CRIMES, entitled 'Glass' and you can check it out below.
