Blackened doom dub project BLACKWOOD unveil creepy single off new EP « Of Flies », due out November 1st on Subsound Records.

Blackened doom dub solo project BLACKWOOD announces new EP « Of Flies » on Subsound Records this November 1st, and shares its disturbing first single today.

Enter total darkness with new single « Of Flies »

BLACKWOOD is Eraldo Bernocchi’s solo doom dub project; the Italian composer, arranger, producer and guitarist started his career in the late 70’s as a guitarist in independent punk bands. « Of Flies » is the first and eponymous track of this new EP and features Minipony vocalist Emilia Moncayo, whose vocals is constantly balancing among growling and rhythmic wording. 

BLACKWOOD is the place children see in their worst nightmares, it’s the darkness shelter. Eraldo Bernocchi’s solo project shapes his own deep, gloomy and earth shaking unconscious thanks to doom dub effects, psychotic bass lines or haunting vocals. The result sounds like a cold blend of Wolvennest, Sunn and Diamanda Galas.
