Italian purveyors of all things heavy Supernatural Cat Records are proud to announce the signing of experimental duo OvO to their eclectic and crushing label roster. In a brief statement from the label this week, Supernatural Cat stated: “We’re proud to announce that OvO joined Supernatural Cat. OvO is not noise, not metal, not doom, not punk, not rock and roll, even if there’s a little bit of influence from all of these genres. It’s not free, nor avant, and definitely not improv. For once, yes, we can really say we can’t file a band!”
The duo known as OvO are already well-known throughout the underground noise, doom and experimental scenes, bearing releases being released by such labels as Bar La Muerte, Blossoming Noise and Load Records. Having played somewhere in the vicinity of 600 shows since their inception at the turn of the century, the band’s travels have taken them from Europe to Mexico, from America to Israel, and beyond. OvO have collaborated, recorded and/or played live with countless notable acts including Nadja, KK Null, Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke, Rollerball, Thrones, SubArachnoid Space, Zenigeva, Lightning Bolt, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Estradasphere, Steve Mc Kay, Trencher, Ludicra, Bill Horist, USA Is A Monster, White Mice, Cock ESP, Bastard Noise, Zu, Larsen, Kill Me Tomorrow, Murder Junkies, Jarboe, A Hawk and a Hacksaw and more.
OvO’s upcoming album Cor Cordium is due out in the spring 2011 via Supernatural Cat, the label who’ve brought incredible releases from Lento, Morkobot, Incoming Cerebral Overdrive, and most notably, doom trio Ufomammut, who are also some of the masterminds behind both Supernatural Cat Records and Malleus Art Rock Lab.
