From their inception, Italian noisemongerers Noise Trail Immersion has hewed closely to every word that’s a part of their band name as if it in itself was the mission statement of the group from the get-go. Crafting unorthodox genre-bending music blending mathcore, dissonant black metal, and hardcore into something fresh that is highly immersive, noisy, and leads you down a path you previously did not know existed.
Today the group announces their third full-length, Curia. The album also serves as the group's first record through I, Voidhanger, and is set for release on Friday, November 12th. For more on the release, Noise Trail Immersion shared with us that: "After the 2018 release "Symbology of Shelter", which culminated with total desperation and nihilistic chaos, Noise Trail Immersion are back on the scene with "Curia", their most mature and spiritual record to date.
Resuming from the pandemonium unleashed in the final part of the band's last record, the new album starts off from a zero point and sets the beginning of a totally different path: a path starting from absolute void and reaching, after a troubled journey, a sort of eerie and mystic cohesion with the obscure. The overall atmosphere is characterized by an aura of 'sacred dissonance', which aims to bring us real knowledge of obscurity, uneasiness, and bleakness, by accepting them as part of man's gist and therefore giving them a spiritual character, without relentlessly forcing them to disappear from our essence.
All of this musically translates into completely new influences, like dark folk and contemporary liturgical music, which have been incorporated and blended with Noise Trail Immersion's typical and ambitious mixture of dissonant black metal, mathcore, and post-metal. To emphasize these new musical contaminations, the album has been shaped with a circular structure: three tracks out of ten – placed respectively at the start, in the middle, and at the end – consist only of gloomy and emotional classical guitar parts, creating a conceptual link that enforces the overall idea behind the album."
As today's premiere of “Dimorare Nella Carne” makes abundantly clear, Curia is going to be a chaotic and wild ride with a lot to offer fans of many different kinds of metal. If you dig the single you're hearing today, pre-orders are available here and here.
