Progenie Terrestre Pura – oltreLuna (2017)


Continuing their magical sidereal journey, today we have Italy’s Progenie Terrestre Pura and their sophomore full-length release “oltreLuna”. Delivering over 55 minutes of highly atmospheric Black Metal with some Industrial Black Metal elements, the band manages to craft five intricate tracks that show great musicianship and ideas. If you like highly experimental/futuristic sounding Black Metal like Shade Empire or similar outfits, you will definitely enjoy this release.

Opening with the crushing riffs of “[.Pianeta.Zero.]”, we get a very Industrial BM vibe mixed with heavy atmospheric elements, making a very unique combination. As always with this band, the track takes a turn into more standard and melodic territories, showcasing the band’s versatility. Continuing the onslaught we have “[.subLuce.]” and its intense drumming, making it one of the most brutal pieces in this release. A nice touch is the dreamy female vocals thrown into the mix to create a deeper atmosphere.

Just when you think that you figured out the direction of this release, “[.oltreLuna.]” throws you an interesting curve ball that will certainly catch people by surprise, but it magically fits in the grand scheme of things. We are not going to ruin the surprise for you, but be sure to listen to this one with an open mind. Our favorite track is the brilliant “[.Deus.Est.Machina.]” and its highly futuristic atmospheric elements, showcasing the band’s musical creativity and desire to experiment with multiple genres.

Interestingly enough as the album keeps going, the tracks keep getting longer and longer, so the closer “[.Proxima-B.]” clocks in at around 15 minutes. This song is also the most diverse and engaging, so be sure to save some energy for it. Overall, “oltreLuna” is one hell of a release that showcases the band’s musical creativity and evolution. Progenie Terrestre Pura is not afraid of pushing boundaries and delivering unique musical experiences.
