Polish-Italian grind outfit Camera Obscura Two boast an impressive lineup, led by former Schizo main man Alberto Penzin alongside members of Cripple Bastards, Hour of Penance, Novembre and others. The band deal in lean grindcore, thrash and crossover, recalling Terrorizer and Discharge, filling all empty space with frantic instrumentals and growled lyrics, as you’ll hear today with the premiere for “Stalked by the Eye of No God,” an earlier demo reimagined for the band’s first full-length, D.Ö.D.
The presence of two bass players gives Camera Obscura Two a heavier low end, which contributes to the grooviness of their sound.
“If I had to sum up CO2 in a phrase, I would say something like this,” Penzin says, explaining of the song to Decibel. “Have your daily dose of Crowley, a lifelong listening to Venom – Welcome To Hell and Discharge – Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing and Repulsion – Horrified, 1/4 of tongue-in-cheek, grate over some battered Boss HM-2 pedal et voilà. That’s the kind of place we like to hang out at. Roughly.
“Heavy music has to be pretty simple. This new take of ‘Stalked By The Eye Of No God’ adheres to the principle.”
Listen to “Stalked by the Eye of No God” below; Selfmadegod will release D.Ö.D. on February 12.
