Italian death metal outfit, Hideous Divinity, have made the title track from their upcoming full-length album, Cobre Verde, available for your listening pleasure. Check it out in the player above; you will not regret it in the least. “Cobre Verde” is such a beautifully dark and hypnotizing song that you’ll be compelled to listen to it over and over again. I guarantee that you’ll be captivated from the very first note of the soft tritone (the Devil in music) intro, and you’ll be completely blown away by the call-and-answer between that calm tritone and the blasts of utter brutality. Eventually both parts come together, and from there on out it’s just absolute carnage.
Cobre Verde is scheduled to drop via Unique Leader Records in the U.S. on October 28th, in the UK on October 27th, and in the rest of Europe on October 31st. Based around Werner Herzog’s 1987 film of the same name, Cobra Verde was recorded at 16th Cellar Studios (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Vomit The Soul) and supplies nine tracks of hate, discontent, and unrelenting audio brutality. The album includes a guest vocal appearances by Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade on “The Alonest Of The Alone” and a searing rendition of Ripping Corpse’s “The Last And Only Son.”
Elaborates band leader/Hour Of Penance founder Enrico Schettino:
Sometimes a riff takes ages to reveal itself, some other times you’re a lucky bastard and the whole song comes out, like magic. ‘Cobra Verde’ belongs to the second category. Title tracks are not ordinary songs; when you decide there’ll be a title track, you accept the challenge of creating, in the space of a few minutes, something that would represent the mood of an entire album. As for ‘Cobra Verde,’ it had to be something beyond death metal. For this exact reason it’s undeniable I was highly influenced by the latest Ulcerate and Gorguts. It was time to push the envelope for Hideous Divinity and that was the aim of the song. The whole composition wavers between storm and calm, nuclear rage assaults and tormented doom litanies. The twisted, samba-like rhythm pattern sees the rebirth of cruel kings and madmen, slave prayers and curses through six minutes of song. Atonal arpeggios create that feeling of rage ready to explode and to be drowned in solitude afterwards. We are alone on this world, so huge yet so narrow, and our thirst is condemned never to be quenched. Like the spirit of Manoel, the white devil condemned to solitude, the ghost that will never see the snow.
