FORMALIST is a supergroup featuring members of some Italian heavyweights bands such as FORGOTTEN TOMB [Ferdinando "HM" Marchisio - vocals], MALASANGRE [Riccardo Rossi - drums] and VISCERA/// [Michele Basso - guitars]

After the critically acclaimed “No One Will Shine Anymore” (2018), FORMALIST are now back and their aim is still one and the same: opening new gates of total sonic horrors.

“We Inherit a World at the Seams” is a monumentally nihilistic record - a low-tuned nightmare combining the most vicious forms of Black Metal, Doom, Sludge and Drone, and taking their fear inducing and menacing sound literally to the extremes.

The FORMALIST unit handles their weapons of sonic destruction with purpose and sadistic intent, here delivering some of the heaviest, most cacophonic and gloomiest Doom / Sludge Metal around, and featuring layers upon layers of rumbling noise, shrieking guitar feedback and desperate howls singing the end of a dying world.

The lyrics are a first person account tackling themes such as darkness, despair and social unrest, and narrating the world's downfall with an hallucinatory and yet detached style.

Terrifyingly suffocating and massively obscure slow music for the disenchanted.
