Exclusive Streams

Ominous experimentalists ZAMBRA return with new record “Prima Punta”!

Over 4 years since their gloomy debut EP that we discussed in our interview HERE, Florence, Italy’s dark post hardcore act ZAMBRA are back with their intriguing debut full length called “Prima Punta” and we have the full stream of the entire thing below!

Inspired by their hometown Sesto Fiorentino, the record further develops ZAMBRA‘s unique style of dark soundscapes blended with multi-style hooks and is set to take their iche into yet-uncharted territories.

Sesto Fiorentino certainly not the most beautiful place in the world but there are incredible stories on every corner, behind every face, these are the stories that touched us. Prima Punta is the name of one of the three peaks of Monte Morello, which is the mountain of Sesto. We all love nature, trekking and climbing so Morello was a perfect symbol of our lives and our passions.

The album was the last record made in Folsom Prison, the band’s baritone guitar player’s studio, which closed right after the album was completed.

We felt at home in there, so we relaxed and took our time, experimenting with sounds which eventually gave birth to the song called “Yanusz” (see further explanation below).

Get the full record from Black Candy Records, Coypu Records on October 12th and catch the band live at the record’s showcase on October 20th at La Polveriera, a medieval monastery in Florence.

METANO

Out……..loneliness, i know how to fill it
trust me i know how to fill it
speed, eat, fuck, look
no one else can’t change, it’s faith,
it’s my faith, blind, MAY BE FOR YOU
it’s faith and it’s
GONE – WENT – FAST
those glorious days, still feel the track and GO AWAY
we were all kings, set on those steeds, forever FIRST
I AM THE KING, YOU ARE MY QUEEN but now it’s over

FOSCO

Those tired hands remind me now
that sharp top
that save me too much times to climb, never enough.
Because they guide me beyond the surface
more than reality where lady death rest
Those weak legs are spoken and still they wonder
who knows they’ll have to lift
this tiny titanic soul
Because they guide me beyond the surface
more than reality where lady death rest
NO LONGER SEE THE GREY OF ROCK, WET BY MEMORIES OF LABORS
MY EYES ALWAYS EXPOSED MORE
TO EMPTINESS IT’S NOT MY FAULT.
IT’S NOT MY FAULT BUT THEY STILL RUINED SILENCE, MOTHER PLEASE
DON’T SHOW MERCY
don’t give their second chance
don’t let them surrounded
just me alone
Because they guide me beyond the surface
more than reality where lady death rest

AMBRA

he breath
he will not lose, he’ll not wait he will not lose time
to rise to heaven, exists, and will not leave you no more
it will come out and won’t bother the guardian’s gate
it won’t wait as it waits now
hot – safe – tight inexorable and you will wait with me
IT’S OVER THE DAWN
he will not lose, he’ll not wait he will not lose time
IT’S OVER THE DAWN

LOTTAROX

tu me fais tourner la tête
juste pour être reconus
certains noms sur certaines listes
il n’y a pas de compromis
c’est l’enfer – DEMONS AND GHOSTS AMONG US THEY WAIT OUR FAIL TO TAKE US AWAY
le monde est compliquet
dans le mien il y a la paix
ecoute sans arret
c’est l’enfer – DEMONS AND GHOSTS AMONG US THEY WAIT OUR FAIL TO TAKE US AWAY

RIMAGGIO

Broken silence hoist the sails
from these banks rhymes drool telling tales
Weathered ropes thight in my claws
a stench so loud feeds my jaws
Gray sun no shine
dark stars bright at night
No safe heaven here
run my coming is fear
I WALK THE DARK SIDE, TAKE DEATH AS MY BRIDE
IN GLOOM I WILL SHINE, ETERNAL TIDE
A daily quietness on the faces
as if fright built these places
Crossed the gates and realized
i’ve been here more than twice
Looking through scared souls
something theirs inside me grows
Signs, walls, fumes, violence
my fear is my silence
Running circles far to near
Oh lord i came from here
I WALK THE DARK SIDE, TAKE DEATH AS MY BRIDE
IN GLOOM I WILL SHINE, ETERNAL TIDE

OCA BIANCA

I age the shoulders are loaded
just to remind you i learned to cry
i only counted nine, and i remember that time was twelve
first time between your arms and i’m safe
the rest fix on a picture
SO TIGHT IN BOTH YOUR HANDS
we left that house, and we went through tunnels
my sister was scared so scared just for fun
SO TIGHT IN BOTH YOUR HANDS
where are you
where are you, dear one hand
where are you, dear one hand
come on jesus take him away,
yes it’s not your fault but i was nine
where are you
where are you dear one hand
where are you one hand.

SUN CHEMICAL

so tired and now back in time, to happiness
with feet down the ground will tell us
once work was the air, the progress has change the needs
move world with the thought of gold
they swap the happy souls
and river flows in the wrong side
poisoned hearts head in the right way
and now back in time, to happiness
with feet down the ground will tell us
sovereign and sovereign
wisdom from above
feeding from below
back to smile and the day will come
choosing life instead chemical sun
and now back in time, to happiness
with feet down the ground will tell us
and now back to happiness
