Al ard is a band coming from Sicily, actually active in the north of Italy, between Turin and Pavia. The genre is a mixture of Industrial and black metal sounds, with D’n’B and Dubstep elements, whose points of reference are Aborym and Thee Maldoror Kollective, for what concern italian soil, Emperor, Satrycon and Diabolos Rising for the scandinavian one.
Al ard project was born during the autumn of 2011. They are part of a cluster of deviated bands called Nera Cooperativa Sicula, whose basic element is the fraternal cooperation and whose aim is the experimental creation of “sickness”, whether it be music either visual and sensorial art.
The electronic background is projected to the brutal D’n’B and Techstep sounds, also swithcing to uncommercial and impact Dubstep interpretations. During the speediest parts, the result of the mixture is violent and immediate, although the most agressive moments are when the electronic sounds are totally fused with the black metal’s rithmic.
