One year after they released their first EP, which was the first step, Ottone Pesante (heavy brass) release the first album. That confirms that was not a joke, neither a divertissement.
Trumpet, trombone and drums can be together really heavy. Ottone Pesante makes a step beyond the traditional idea of extreme metal, based on the sound of bass and guitar. They do this after 90 gigs in the last year, playing all around Italy and in Europe.
Brassphemy Set In Stone is the evolution of Ottone Pesante. Music has become heavier, more extreme and more technical but also melodic in the same time. The album is very fast and brutal, really impressive especially for brass players. ‘Trombstone’ is the only exception, a doom track that lets the listener breath.
‘Brutal’ is the first song, symbol of the heavy brass metal. ‘Nights Blood’ is a melodic death metal track inspired by the Swedish metal band Dissection. ‘Bone Crushing’ is the chosen track for the video, recorded on high mountains. The clip shows how physical Ottone Pesante music is.
The album was recorded live, during 4 days between May and June 2016, in the only moment that Ottone Pesante tour stopped.
