TRAGODIA Completing Work On Third Album

Italian metal label Kolony Records will bring their country’s own TRAGODIA to their heavily-expanding roster, as the band prepares to release its third full-length release worldwide in the coming months.

Based out of Italy’s Northern Italian commune of Brescia, Tragodia has released two full-length albums to date, beginning with their debut The Promethean Legacy, released in 2007, followed by 2012’s more expansive Theomachy. With a charging, versatile and at times progressive approach to melodic metal, a blend of vocal styles, blazing solos and straightforward sections of crushing, classic but modernized thrash-inspired songwriting fuel the band’s works.

There’s lots of Thrash Metal coming my way as of late…first there was Doom everywhere on my listening plate now I’m getting hit by a Thrash Wave.  Cowabunga dudes. Anyway, that is not always a bad thing.  So my latest band to listen to is Absinthium from Italy.  An Interesting name for a band I have to say, based on a drink that is believed to make people see all kinds of weird shit.  So was this shot of absinth laced metal tough to swallow or did it go down silky smooth for a high octane metal ride?  Well read on my friends and bottoms up!
