The Very Very Danger – Witness The Legitness

Ian Clement (Wallace Vanborn) and Michele De Feudis (formerly of Horses On Fire) have put their raw talent and imagination to deliver the outrageously fun, The Very Very Danger. Transforming into their own superheroes—Kitty taming the synths, Bunny behind the drums and Bear chugging away on the bass—they bring you Witness The Legitness (9000 Records/Consouling Sounds) Continue reading

Bring up Italy when talking about Metal and you’re likely to conjure images of cheesy Power Metal a la Rhapsody of Fire or Arthemis, or melodic Gothic in the form of Lacuna Coil, but there’s a fair few decent Stoner and Doom bands, most notably Ufomammut, too.

With such a bold statement, it is a clear indication that Island (No Sleep/Redfield), their first full-length album featuring former guitarist Brenneman on vocals, was meant to be ground-breaking.
