Yet another valuable expression of a post metal / post hardcore Italian movement characterized by a certain ferment, Postvorta publish for Drown Within Records what should be the first episode of a trilogy. Back from the long-distance work Beckoning Light We Will Set Ourselves On Fire, the group that today is led by the only Andrea Fioravanti, consolidates the good impressions aroused at the time with this ep composed of four songs, which run for over forty minutes by supporting a concept focused on the cycle of birth. The interpretation of the genre is absolutely in the canons, with an exasperated scream and a sound that leaves little room for easy melodies. Not for this reason, however, follows a marked incommunicability: in fact, the music of Postvorta is disturbing but flows smoothly at the same time, finding in a song like Corion its true apotheosis. A line full of emotional tension intersects with the robustness of metal dissonances, creating what, at least to my ears, should be the ideal expression of post metal. Aegeria is a difficult work, complex but not so hostile: it is clear that the distortions and sounds that skimp on caresses do not make the work within the reach of all but, surely, those who have appreciated bands of the vital Emilia-Romagna scene as Nero di Marte, Dementa Senex, Sedna, Viscera ///, in addition to the inevitable tutelary Neurosis and Isis, can not do the same with the excellent Postvorta.
