Genre defiant, avant experimentalists, OvO, are pleased to premiere the official new video for “O Cannibali.” The eye-popping 3D animated clip was created by the MegaBaita collective. A meticulous creation from beginning to end, “I Cannibali” took a month to properly produce, including the construction of its many models, the animation and the final edit. The technique required the fabrication of more than a thousand moving objects in two minutes. Every image has been hand drawn on paper and only freeware programs were used in its manipulation.
Elaborates Cvlt Nation, “What do gods and villians, a kraken and a tempest, and a raging Italian avant doom experimental band have in common? They are all featured in this rad video… painstakingly compiled to create a scene of werewolves eating vampires eating Pinhead eating Osiris and so on and so on, all to this epic OvO track!”

“I Cannibali” comes by way of OvO‘s confounding Abisso full-length issued last year via Supernatural Cat. Abisso finds the curious noise duo of Stefania Pedretti and Bruno Dorella taking their unorthodox compositions to entirely new dark, rhythmic, and often suffocating realms. Where Cor Cordium and previous offering, CroceVia, were veritable points-of-no-return for their minimal rock structures with Dorella’s half drum set and Pedretti’s guitar and penetrating vocal gymnastics swirling into a detached otherworldly kingdom of curiosity, Abisso travels far beyond those confines, using contemporary music tools to maintain their unparalleled creativity and eternal evolution. Samples, drum machines, pads, field recordings and synths converge into a harrowingly alluring sound that haunts the ears with ancestral urgency. With the help of Giulio “Ragno” Favero at the mixing desk, Giovanni Versari’s mastering, and the friendly collaboration of Alan Dubin (Gnaw, ex-OLD, ex-Khanate) and Carla Bozulich with her full band, Evangelista, OvO has traversed into new territories of extreme and adventurous listeners are taking notice.
Ringmaster Review crowns Abisso, “an outstanding violation,” in a 9/10 review furthering that, “OvO…provide emotional and mental infringements which work like aural manna.” Last Rites recognizes the manifestations of, “two disconnected people peering in on a humankind with which they’ve lost touch. And considering the mechanical recording process that committed this to whatever format your mind selects to absorb it, it’s a pretty organic and fluid experience,” while Cvlt Nation commends the twosome’s “unique recording,” calling it, “both heavy and strange; these songs are equal parts snarling feedback, bludgeoning riffs, Bruno Dorella’s blunt-force percussion and the otherworldly growls and caterwauls of Stefania Pedretti.”Adds Exclaim, “Abisso finds the duo at their best: ugly, bombastic and undeniably captivating.”
