DISMAL - Exclusive Streaming Premiere Of The Song From Upcoming Album


Terra Relicta webmagazine brings you an exclusive premiere of the song "Gold Leviathan Part I, II" by Italian dark gothic metal masters Dismal. The song is taken from Dismal's upcoming album entitled Quinta Essentia, which is scheduled for release via Dreamcell11 (a division of Aural Music) on 13th November and coincides with Dismal's 25th anniversary as a band.

Quinta Essentia is another masterpiece of classical symphonic music mixed with doom metal, darkwave, neofolk, waltz and... tango! Quinta Essentia is a new gothic musical fairy tale made by Dismal - The Waltz Of Mind artistic project. With soothing, dark and sometimes almost ethereal, but powerful female vocals of Rossana, combined with atmospheric gothic metal instrumentation, almost epic, neoclassical dark, as well brooding and theatrical song structures, Dismal are offering an unforgetable listening experience. Quinta Essentia is a concept album that was recorded in July 2020  in the Gulp Studio by Marco Calliari. The band claims to have combined all their previously works, keeping their signature gothic and theatrical sound constant. The lyrics are developed on cultural, philosophical and alchemical themes.Dismal were formed in 1995 and have released their first album in November 1998 for Pagan Moon Records, titled Fiaba Lacrimevole - Like A Red Bleeding Rose In A Glacial Desert. This debut album was an immediate success and soon it became a top selling album for the label. In September 2002 Dismal signed a long term deal with Aural Music Group, co-founding Dreamcell11, a division of Aural Music in order to follow and to promote the band artistically and commercially.

Within the end of 2002 the band entered the Gulp Studio by Marco Calliari to record their second album titled Rubino Liquido - Three Scarlet Drops…, using a 12-elements orchestra. Described as a mix of claustrophobic and essential drum parts, waltz and tango mixed with baroque and orchestral sound. Miele Dal Salice is the third album released in 2006, the band dedicated a lot of time to this record, full of bizarre and intense tones. On this new effort, Rossana Landi is the new lead singer, playing contrabass too. After a short but intense touring around Germany and Italy, protagonists of very important festivals like the Wave Gothic Treffen in Leipzig and Berlin, Dismal took a break and Afelio (guitarist and male vocal) left the band due to personal reasons. After this very long break the band decided to enter the studio again at the Punto Rec Studios by Fabrizio Argiolas in 2013 to record the new album titled Giostra di Vapore. In this work the band has created a new sound dimension fusing electronic sound with the classical music, modern and antique meets together for a sound inspired by steampunk and industrial revolution. Dismal in the 2019 begins the composition of their fifth studio album entitled Quinta Essentia.Give a listen to the album opener "Gold Leviathan Part I, II" and take a ride into the special dark universe full of mysteries created by Dismal. This is  where rationality and madness are constantly touched, it's a mix of magical atmospheres that characterize the new gothic musical fairy tale.

Dismal are: Rossana Landi (vocals/double-bass), Bradac (piano/synths/orchestrations/percussion), Daniel Porfido (8 strings electric guitar/classic guitar) and Lautaro Acosta (violin).
