Metallurgical Fire Colosso gives us a brutal but nuanced record. Can’t pick a favorite song. This is excellent.

Daaniel Zaa Chaotic, asphyxiating, tremendous... this album is a big surprise, totally blown away! Favorite track: Pestilence.

metalheadchris Haunting. Purchasing this during the Covid-19 pandemic was eerily familiar to the concept of the album. Biblical texts aside; amazing album! Absolutely devestating how each song is representative to the four horsemen, makes you think about our present time and the circumstances we've brought upon ourselves. Can't wait to represent this masterpiece when my shirt and cd arrive in the mail... eventually. 10 outta 10 for freaking me out! Favorite track: Death.

about

After years of toiling in the underground, putting out six releases of ever-evolving death metal, COLOSSO have conjured up their finest and partnered with our label to put out their newest and easily their most ambitious one yet. Based on the concept of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, founding member Max Tomé has recruited different vocalists for each song to give them their own identity and it helps that they're reputed figures in the Portuguese underground namely - Guilherme Henriques of OAK and GAEREA, Diogo Santana of ANALEPSY, and Sérgio Afonso of BLEEDING DISPLAY. Furthermore, to lend a human element to this futuristic album, Robin Stone of NORSE has taken over the drumming duties, with Alexandre Ribeiro of GROG fulfilling the bass responsibilities, while Max Tomé does the rest. The result is a breathtaking and refreshingly diverse album showcasing the myriad aspects of this bold and innovative death metal band without compromising on their aggressive, apocalyptic sound.
