Since 2020, Alta Rossa develops an unique sound.
Gathering musicians from Horskh and Asidefromaday, the band plays Post-Hardcore with diverse influences. Antoine Lauzel (vocals), David « Dess » Demesmay (bass), Jordan Daverio (guitar), Thomas Dubois (guitar) and Mathieu Martinazzo (drums) are ready to unveil us Void Of An Era.
Binary Cell opens the album with a soaring and dissonant sound, which will be fed by a weighing and haunting rhythmic as well as massive and melancholic rhythmic. Airy melodies are melted to the powerful groove which continuously burns before savagely ceases to let place to The Stardrainer and its raw strength. The song gathers lively patterns, mainly on the rhythmic basis, on which dissonant elements still remain, creating this interesting contrast before Cycle comes, unveiling a worrying sound. Oppression continues with haunting riffs supported by visceral screams but also an unhealthy groove which will break necks before Dawn Will Never Rise pour its dirty blackness and its pessimistic tones with a weighing slowness. Leads sustain melancholy into this desperate march, then the tempo accelerates, allowing Orbiting to continue with hooking and abrasive sonorities. The song offers us way more soft soaring elements, creating an epic atmosphere like on The Fall and its boiling rage which only asks to express through obvious blackness. Melodic tones easily draw a distinction from the mass, which leads to Void Of An Era, the eponymous composition, to close the album. Longer than the other ones, it allows the band to progressively build a quiet but oppressive atmosphere before making saturation explode in a climax of intensity which seems to be endless and hellish, then silence seizes the sound.
Alta Rossa plays with blackness, intensity and saturation, creating a vortex of soaring but abrasive sonorities. On Void Of An Era, the band catches and tames dissonance, and it shows us it obeys them every word.
