New OvO Single "Eternal Freak" on The Quietus
Next month sees the release of a new album from Italy's OvO, and we're premiering album track 'Eternal Freak' above right now.

The track is taken from forthcoming album Creatura which will be released by Dio Drone on December 9, and it's punctuated by slamming, swampy drums, squalls of feedback and punchy guitar riffs, as well as Stefania Pedretti's no-holds-barred vocal.

The pair have banked on a recently established label in Dio Drone to release the album, opting for a more DIY approach with the sharing of the album in comparison to past album campaigns. In addition to providing vocals and guitars for the album, Stefania Pedretti has also contributed to the record with field recordings captured during OvO’s tour in Vietnam. An extensive tour is planned in support of the album following its release.

"Zombie Stomp" featured on Stereogum

"Zombie Stomp" featured on Stereogum! Our new song is in streaming since yesterday, and people already renamed it ZOMBIE STRUMP!!! Enjoy, and don't panic..

"Italy’s OvO (note: no relation toToronto's OvO) are a band who’ve built their career on sheer persistence, rather than any pre-existing constituency. They play music — rhythmic noise, really — that simmers with a flat-affect malice, owing equal debts to extreme metal, noise rock, industrial music, and dark electronica. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but a deeply satisfying one if you can get it down. In spite of the high barriers to entry, OvO have convinced quite a few to take this dive over the course of their 16-year run.

Their ninth effort, Creatura, arrives at an opportune moment. Lurching metal/noise collages topped with wordless shrieking will never be a major commercial force, but the transgressive approach OvO employs is enjoying some deserved public interest; fellow travelers like Author & Punisher, Prurient, the Body, and Gnaw are enjoying a day in the sun. Creatura demonstrates that its creators can run with this nauseating sound as well as anybody. Like previous advance track “Satanam”, “Zombie Stomp” pretty much does what it says on the tin. Quicker and more insistent than Ovo’s typical pessimistic lurch, the tune drives forward with a feverish energy, and its static washes hide a melodic heart that calls ’80s slasher scores to mind. Listen."
