Out April 6th on Aural Music – Preorder
“Feast for Water unfolds a world well worth taking the risk of not making it back.” The Obelisk
“50 minutes of highly mysterious and intricately crafted music.” Infernal Masquerade
MESSA play evoking doom metal with a dark jazz twist. Deliciously haunting female vocals, Rhodes piano and 70’s fuzz guitars combine to conjure a sound that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Windhand, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, The Devil’s Blood, Jex Thoth, Angelo Badalamenti, Bellwitch, Urfaust, John Coltrane and Aluk Todolo, the band has moved from the droning occult doom of their first LP « Belfry » to a new, darker and more atmospheric approach clearly showcased in their new record « Feast for Water », a concept album centered on the introspective, symbolic and ritual features of the liquid element
