About their new album, the band comments: « It is a journey that kicks off in the darkness of deep water, and as you swim to the seabed you reach the portals of an imaginary submerged cathedral. We chose that concept because it represents an idea of beginning, of fluid power, of pureness and simplicity. (…) We tried to achieve a more ‘submerged’ sound instead of getting the usual fuzzy, wide-open guitars in order to give the listener a feeling of apnea. » Check out another song off « Feast For Water » at this location

MESSA emerged on the first day of 2014. Marco and Sara started to develop the basic concept while writing the first songs. Later on, Alberto and Rocco joined the band. The extreme diversity of their musical background immediately proved to be essential in the construction of the band’s sound. In 2016, Messa signed a deal with Aural Music and subsequently released their first opus, « Belfry », which was brought on tour extensively across Europe and USA. A flexy disc and a Picture 7’’ were released before the band got to work on their second album titled « Feast for Water », due out April 6th on Aural Music.

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
