Dismal Breaks Seven Year Silence, New LP Announced

Italian dark/gothic metal act Dismal announced the impending release of its fourth full length album, entitled "Giostra Di Vapore" - the band's first album in seven years - on December 9, 2013 via Aural Music/Dreamcell11. The album will be available as a CD and digital download.

"Giostra di vapore" represents a new gothic fairy tale. "A band’s maturation leading to an evolution of the style introducing Victorian steampunk atmospheres. Music which produced the mind’s theater between times of waltz and tango. The musical structure, as in Gothic architecture, plays on thin emotional balances between electronics and orchestrations. An introspective concept which blends the present, the ancient and the future."

Composer/keyboardist Bradac commented on the album: “The new album will be the natural evolution of 'Miele Dal Salice.' We recorded more than 50 minutes of dark emotional music, mixing classical passages and electronic sounds, with our usual eerie atmosphere. The Lyrical Concept is based on the 'waltz of the mind' mixing Philosophy with Alchemy and Social Psychology."

The track listing for the album is::

1. The Four Vibrations
2. Giostra Di Vapore
3. ll Ballo Degli Obesi
4. Microcosm & Macrocosm
5. Eden
6. Vimana
7. Mélisse (Part II)
