Neromega Announce Debut EP Nero Omega Due in April

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 23rd, 2021 by JJ Koczan

Anyone out there? Am I talking to myself? Fine, good. Note to myself, then: these guys are onto something. Buried under all the initials-only aestheticism and horror whatnot there’s a current of dark psych very much in league with Italy’s long and storied history of such things — Paul Chain, Death SS, the usual names, plus movies. Plus it’s in Italian, which finds the band less posturing than some of Italy’s more rock-minded outfits of years past trying to party-down in English. This has more edge, but still trippy. Dark trippy. I dig it.

EP was released late 2020, tape. CD/LP through Helter Skelter Productions under the Regain Records banner. Again, pretty cool.

Conclude note to myself:

Neromega Nero Omega

Helter Skelter Productions (distributed & marketed by Regain Records) announces April 11th as the international release date for Neromega’s striking debut mini-album, Nero Omega, on CD and 12″ vinyl formats.

Neromega is a gathering of Italian musicians from Rome who have been active for over 25 years in different bands and musical contexts, yet knew each other since the mid ’90s and always shared a passion for a certain kind of musical vibe/themes and high-quality songwriting.

Neromega’s debut mini-album, Nero Omega, was initially released in October 2020 on cassette tape in limited quantities, and now Helter Skelter are releasing it on a worldwide scale. And for good reason: Neromega meet at the crossroads of early Black Sabbath, Italian doom, and progressive/psychedelic rock of old. Yet, they find their own unique path by being more than a sum of their elements, their sound equally reeking of doom, Italian giallo/noir/horror morbidity, and Covid-19. With Nero Omega will one find three original songs and a cover of Balletto di Bronzo’s “Un posto,” all of it wrapped in the dulcet tones of their native tongue. The 25 minutes of Nero Omega are but a taste of Neromega’s forthcoming debut album.

In the meantime, stream Neromega in its entirety HERE at Regain Records’ Bandcamp, where both formats can be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
