['selvɘ] - "DOMA" (Overdrive Records/Shove Records, 2018)

Band: ['selvɘ]
Title: DOMA
Genre: Post-black metal
Time: 25 min
Year: 14th February 2018
Rating: 76/100

Behind the absurd moniker of ['selvɘ] - that can be transcripted with the more senseful "selva" (Italian for "wood") -, there is an Italian trio from Lodi (Piedmont) that was born at the end of 2013. Their sound belongs surely to the vast black metal spectrum and, throughout the years, they have shared the stages with great bands like Full of Hell, Shining and Celeste. Despite all these references, I realized that they have got no profile on Metal-Archives, and this is strange, also because they released two full-lenght albums so far. Some months ago Selva are back with a 25-minute EP called "DOMA", in all-Italian release by Overdrive Rec in collaboration with Shove Rec (other labels have co-operated with them for the CD release as well for the vinyl and tape versions).
