Sick Man Getting Sick Records
Distribution: Soulfood Music
RASPAIL was born around 2010, by the will of three musicians, members and former members of bands like Klimt 1918, Psychotic Despair, Room With a View, Novembre.
The band was initially launched as a tribute to bands like early Katatonia, early Paradise Lost or October Tide - the typical 90s death/doom metal – but soon started to process an own sound in a personal way. Their different musical tastes and vision of music has deeply influenced the sound: Post Rock, Shoegaze, Drone, Ambient, Noise and Black Metal – everything is recognizable in RASPAIL’s music.
The band states: "The album is the result of a long process of composition and writing. We can describe the final result with an image: the old rural landscape all around Rome, cherished by the Romantic poets, with its imposing ruins covered in ivy and climbing, under the black vault of the night sky."
