The Rome-based doom-jazz band share the video off the upcoming LP inspired by “pandemics, wars, private hells”
One doesn’t immediately think of Rome, Italy, when looking for music that could be construed as “Doom Jazz.”
Enter Macelleria Mobile di Mezzanotte, a post-industrial and dark jazz band who formed in 2001, maintained by Adriano Vincenti who’d named the project after Clive Barker’s novel The Midnight Meat Train.
Its title is inspired by a James Ellroy quote, in turn borrowed from WH Auden, “this storm, this savaging disaster,” the group’s latest LP is out on May 20 via Subsound Records.
Rock & Roll Globe is honored to premiere a taste of The Savaging Disaster this morning with the video for the album’s new single, its title track, ahead of its release day.
A brutal act of resignation that looms in times of uncertainty, wars, pandemics, private hells. Stylistically it is the umpteenth step forward in the sound research of a band that has long developed a distinctive sound, anchored between noir jazz, dark ambient and electronic, but which at each new release is able to renew itself and show new nuances.
“Dark jazz is just an empty genre that you can fill up with your touch and your own inspiration”, decree the members of Macelleria Mobile di Mezzanotte.
