Ten songs named after sandwiches, that is a whole new level of reckless risk-taking in the very solemn post-metal scene: ORSO’s first full-length honoured the tradition of adventurous culinary topics inaugurated on their frst EP "Primi Piatti" back in 2016. Don’t be fooled by the Swiss quintet’s misleading thematic lightness: behind the veil of futility lurks a severe knowledge and rare skills of metallic methodology. The possible connection between the sandwiches (Sloppy Joe, Mitraillette, Fluffernutter, etc – detailed recipes are included in the booklet) and the ten tracks named after them? Problably the overlay of hypnotic riffs, stellar arpeggios and tribal rhythms, used as several high-quality ingredients and piled on with a know-how that makes "Paninoteca" very rich but never indigestible. The musical legacy involved is well known (Cult of Luna, Breach, Terra Tenebrosa, Russian Circles, Neurosis), but the zealous dudes of ORSO (three fierce guitars, a clockwork rythm section, no vocals) succeed in making those ten tracks unique and intense, from monolithic impacts to staggering atmospheres and ethereal interludes. All of that ended up in the hands of sonic giants Kurt Ballou (mix) and Magnus Lindberg (mastering) to ensure maximum ﬂavour.
