Black Reuss is epic melancholy. Big, bombastic, cinematic soundscapes with contemplative lyrics and brooding vocals – Metamorphosis is the metallic soundtrack of inner struggle, artistic vision, and inward investigation. With a lead track that is accompanied by a moody, beautiful music video, the 13 track album is sure to hit with fans of hard rock that balances epic doom and symphonic hope.
Black Reuss is Maurizio Dottore. Dottore handles all compositions, production, lyrics, and performance – making Black Reuss a one man band. Based in Liechtenstein, Black Reuss’s music feels distinctly existential in feel, living and dying in the moment, literally existing in the now. Dottore describes the heaviness of the music as a heaviness he has carried with him his whole life.
The beautiful, dark, and heavy album is available now on Spotify and his music video for “Incomplete” is below. You can also find more on Black Reuss on blackreuss.com. Fans of dark and ominous music with a ray of hope shining through are sure to find this one among their new faves. A symphony of dense and hulking heaviness that retains its beauty from start to finish, Metamorphosis is a great release that comes highly recommended.
