Italian hardcore horror punk quartet TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO will release their Initiation Into Nothingness debut LP this week, taking today to stream the full album early through an international partnership, with North American webzine Cvlt Nation and Italian site Metalitalia sharing early streaming duties.
Initiation Into Nothingness was tracked at OFF Studio in Turin, Italy by Paul Beauchamp and Danilo Battocchio – TICDB‘s guitar player – who also handled mixing duties at his own Deepest Sea Studio in Turin, Italy. Upon completion the album was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon (Integrity, Nails, Victims, Ringworm). The last track, “To The End Of The Night,” features guest vocals by Weed Mason of the band Tons, and the cover art is by Gigi Fagni, tattoo artist and close friend of the band, while the overall layout was directed by Steuso, a graphic artist known for his screen-printed posters.
Issues the write-up accompanying the stream of Initiation Into Nothingness, “Across the span of shrapnel-infested, unifying blackened hardcore aggression, TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO will show the listener the true meaning of despair, as they rip through these eleven songs with mind-boggling ferocity, as if they are fighting tooth and nail for survival through the rising flames of a shattered and botched existence. This is bleak, dark and hopeless hardcore punk that stares you straight in the face, through the horrifying eyes of all the suffering and wretched souls of the universe who pray for your total annihilation.”
Bare Teeth Records will release Initiation Into Nothingness on vinyl and digital formats this Saturday, October 8th; orders can be placed HERE.
TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO remains active on the live front, with a solid live attack beginning this weekend with a record release show in Torino, followed by a run of shows across Italy through the rest of the month and well into November in support of the album. Additional tour dates will be announced through the coming months as well.

TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO began at the end of 2013 in Turin, Italy, from four friends previously involved in such bands as Marmore, Last Minute To Jaffna, and Magdalene, all active and known within the Italian scene. Containing tracks written in their first two years as a band, the new album title Initiation Into Nothingness as well as the band’s moniker (translated to All The Colors Of The Dark in English) are a clear tribute to the 1972 movie directed by Sergio Martino. The eleven tracks on the record are all about their love for 1980s and ’90s hardcore punk, Black Sabbath records, horror movies, sonic violence, and high BPM delivery.
