CANTATA SANGUI were founded by two bass players and simply continued to evolve without the use of guitars to this very day. Therefore their debut-album “On Rituals and Correspondence in Constructed Realities” is exclusively fuelled by the mighty clanging and pounding heaviness of bass strings, which is smashing like an unstoppable steam-rolling juggernaut through massive walls of sound. ‘We don't need to down-tune as our sound is heavy by nature!’, states singer Anna Pienimäki confidently, whose lusciously deep velvet voice snakes seductively through the monolithic musical structures created by those thick steel chords. With the accuracy of practising research scientists, CANTATA SANGUI dissect, examine and reassemble the genetic codes of Doom, Gothic and even Black Metal to shape “On Rituals and Correspondence in Constructed Realities”. Parallel to their musical investigations the band lyrically explore the depths of ancient mythologies, natural sciences and philosophies. Yet despite their applied intelligence on all aspects of their progressive album, CANTATA SANGUI never fail to impress with down to earth Metal and a heavy groove. Use your head, break your neck!
