Close your eyes. You may think Satan is singing. Open them: you’ll a small masked woman, with dreadlocks down the her ankles, and without vocal effects. Close your eyes again: you’ll think of a heavy metal double kick drum set. Open them again: a gigantic, wrestling masked man is torturino a floor tom, a snare and a cymbal, standing up, no kick. Two people, half gear, enough to bring Hell. This is OvO Bruno Dorella: floor tom, snare, ride Stefania Pedretti: voice, guitar, bass
Since the dawn of the first galaxies the voice of MORKOBOT resounded solemn over the saturated atmospheres of the planets in evolution. Dominator of the magnetic strengths and ancestral regulator of the conscience flows, Morkobot has returned to the Earth through his three messengers LIN,LAN,LEN brutally subdued to his will. On our planet MORKOBOT manifests himself through sonic experimentations that humans call music. Morkobot pervades the darkened minds of LIN,LAN,LEN conducting their notes in sadistic consequential deliriums. come to feed you with the supreme verb!
» von Stroheim (Cinematic Doom)
In the course of 2013 a cinematic doom project called von Stroheim saw the light of day.
Count Erich Oswald Marc Hans Carl Maria von Stroheim und Nordenwall (born Eric Oswald Stroheim) was an american actor-screenwriter-author-director of austrian origin. Visionary, subversive, ambitious, cynical, a fabulator and a genius, Erich von Stroheim directed films in which sex, handicap, power and money often played a key role. Within the puritan context of the 1920’s, he was often misunderstood. The trio chose his name as a tribute to his free spirit.
Musically speaking, von Stroheim is somewhere in the galaxy of doom metal. However, rather than sticking strictly to the genre, the band is following a course of its own. von Stroheim adds to doom’s relentlessness and heaviness a desire to make music that is evocative of cinematic atmospheres, borrowing elements from various styles: post-metal, film scores, spoken word, kraut rock even… Therefore, one could describe von Stroheim as the missing link between Electric Wizard and Ennio Morricone. This has made von Stroheim comfortable enough to open for bands such as Jucifer or Martin Bisi (producer of The Dresden Dolls, Swans, Sonic Youth…)
