Lento are an Italian Atmospheric Sludge Metal Band who formed in 2004.
The current members are:
Giuseppe Caputo - Guitar
Lorenzo Stecconi - Guitar
Donato Loia - Guitar
Emanuele Massa - Bass
Federico Colella - Drums and live samples
In 2007 they released their briliant debut album "Earthen" to critical acclaim. They went on tour and shared the stage with such brilliant acts as Baroness, Pelican, Torche, Nomeansno, Amenra, Liars, Zu, Ufomammut.
Since then they have been touring constantly and writing their new album ICON which is now finally available. ICON has just been released for free download. They are on a new record label. The awesome Denovali Records.
The CD/LP Version of the album will be released in late March 2011.
I have had the album for a few days and its fucking awesome. Brilliant Atmospheric Sludge Metal with some crunching toned down guitars.
The album consists of 10 tracks and is on for 38 Minutes. But after listening to it you feel it was on for twice longer. You will be aiming for the repeat button to hear this amazing album over and over again.
This has been getting some great reviews on the net. And rightly so. Its a great achievement by this talented band to release an album that is even better than their last album. Highly Recommended.
