Genre-collapsing noiseniks, OvO, are pleased to announce the release of their new album, Abisso, on November 4th via the vessel of all things Italian and loud, Supernatual Cat.
The duo, made up of Bruno Dorella on a stripped back drumkit and Stefania Pedretti handling vocals and guitars, are entering their thirteenth year together, and are showing no signs of relenting in their sonic exploration.
OvO’s live repertoire has seen them play everywhere from Europe to Mexico to Israel and everywhere in between alongside a host of sound-benders including Nadja, KK Null, Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke, Rollerball, Thrones, SubArachnoidSpace, Zenigeva, Lightning Bolt, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Estradasphere, Steve Mc Kay, Trencher, Ludicra, Bill Horist, USA Is a Monster, White Mice, Bastard Noise, Zu, Larsen, Jarboe, and A Hawk and a Hacksaw. Truly rooted themselves in the culture of crafting sharp and incredibly loud dynamic noise, OvO’s sound veers from bellyache sludge to simmering and shimmering compositions that ooze rock ‘n’ roll from punk-stained pores.
Stay tuned for further OvO details in the coming weeks.
“With such a small collection of instruments to abuse, OvO constantly evolve as a multi-headed beast – at times creating a clatter of apocalyptic death-thrash before veering violently into extended passages of synth-driven noise-doom. If you’re looking for the soundtrack to a murderous rampage, multi-car pile-up or nuclear meltdown, look no further. There doesn’t really exist anything else quite like this in music.” – The Sleeping Shaman
“From start to finish it sounds like a hellmouth opened in a recording studio, which is every bit as fascinating as that sounds.” — MTV Iggy
“Ominous basslines, crushing drumming and serpentine guitar – fascinating and terrifying.” — Sitting Now
“Drifting in the limbo between the percussive sludge of Jucifer and the surreal assault of Fantômas.” — The Skinny
“Not for the faint of heart, but then again, most real art is like that: it challenges you to make sense of it according to your own life and beliefs, and either ignore it or change because of it. This is that real.″ – Foxy Digitalis
“The two masked hell-raisers that make up OvO have created an album that can only be described as a discordant, schizophrenic and shockingly evil mess, albeit an extremely enjoyable one. Fuzzy lumbering bass lines, simple percussion and dirty riffs play the backing music to groans and screams that could only have materialised directly from hell’s mouth. It doesn’t get much more fucked up than Cor Cordium; the worrying thing is you’ll probably enjoy it.” – Digital Fix
