MOPE To Release Debut Via Taxi Driver Records; Video For The Track ‘Old Grey Street’ Available To Stream

10th February 2014

Mope

MOPE is an instrumental doom metal band formed in Genova (Italy) in 2011 by Fabio Cuomo (Drums // Eremite), Stefano Parodi (Bass // Vanessa Van Basten), Jessica Rassi (Guitar // The Giant’s Lab) and Sara Twinn (Saxophone // Folagra).

They love minimalist and repetitive but heavy and distorted drones and stoner doom metal riffs, together with slow ambient/jazz environments. Each member comes from a different music background but they all agree on listening to Earth, Om and Sleep. What comes out is a mix of heavy sonorities and elements of avant-garde metal, with the saxophone as a peculiar vocal line. For fans of Yakuza, Minsk, Callisto but also any doom metal, post metal, stoner and psychedelic music lover.

MOPE‘s self-titled debut album will be out on 22nd February 2014, released by Taxi Driver Records (Genova, Italy) in CD and Digital format. Mope was recorded at Cdm, then mixed and mastered at El Fish Recording Studio. The CD cover artwork is a drawing by Jessica Rassi (The Giant’s Lab).
