Ponte Del Diavolo Dance With The Devil on New Single | Season of Mist

It’s fitting that Ponte Del Diavolo are named after the “Bridge of the Devil”. The Italian band weld doom and black metal into a towering force that’s as cruel and unforgiving as the infamously steep road that medieval peasants had to cross on the way to their home country.

With the announcement of their very first album, Ponte Del Diavolo cast a delightfully gloomy shadow over the holiday season. Today, they’re letting the bad times roll into the new year by unveiling their second single.

“Covenant” swears off the conventional wisdom that sometimes less is more. After all, what’s better than a dark and doomy bass line? How about two dark and doomy bass lines that swarm like a sky full of thunderclouds.

“Covenant is a hymn to nature, a pact with the elements, a reconciliation with death” Ponte Del Diavolo says. “The video is a tribute to Turin, which we believe encapsulates all this in its magical and often decadent romanticism. It’s the song that has more ‘forays’ than the other tracks on the album. Theremin, synthesizers and clarinet (played by Lucynine, Andrea L’Abbate and Vittorio Sabelli respectively) can be heard between dark wave-inspired and typically doom parts. It is the first song born during the composition sessions and its refrain contains the lyrics that gave the album its title.”

Having two bassists is what gives Ponte Del Diavolo such an earthshaking foundation, though the hammering drum fills and sludgy riffs could send even the blackest of hearts to their grave. But “Covenant” adds some more gothic flourishes to their dance with death. Laid to rest by an ominous foghorn of thermin, the song ends with a spooky, spine-chilling whistle of synth.

“Surrender to the tomb”, Erba Del Diavolo beckons with unflappable cool. Resistance is futile. Come join Ponte Del Diavolo on the dark side of the Italian arts.
