Italians Damned Spring Fragrantia debut new video from last year’s Divergences

Damned Spring Fragrantia Drowned In Cyan screencap Basick Records

Sitting at the more pummely end of Basick Records’ roster, Italian young guns Damned Spring Fragrantia have been a little quiet since releasing their debut album Divergences in June last year. Then again, they did a bit of touring, and made their first UK (and ex-Italian) appearance at last summer’s UK Tech-Metal Fest., where we spoke to them and had a look at what they have to offer.

Simon also reviewed Divergences, and found a solid if contradictorially undivergent debut, which nevertheless will serve the band well for their next endeavour.

Anyway, despite being a bit quiet over the colder months, it seems they’ve been busy booking and filming, as they’ve got a European tour coming up later this month, and have released the following video (by way of Rock Sound) in order to promote it:

The name “Drowned In Cyan” is sure to conjure nightmares for anyone responsible for their workplace’s toner cartridges, but thankfully the video takes us away from the office and into the countryside – which looks remarkably grey-of-sky for Italy (in the performance sections at least) – and cuts up footage of the band with a young man heading into some very scenic countryside in order to place some black roses (litterbug). We’re sure this is allegorical, but it’s too early on a Monday for us to tell how or why, so forgive us won’t you?

The aforementioned dates are below, with at least some if not all (slightly unclear Basick; sort it aht!) including labelmates No Consequence, so expect yourselves to be suitably pummeled by that.
