Since the dawn of the first galaxies, the voice of MORKOBOT has resounded solemn over the saturated atmospheres of the planets in evolution. Dominator of the magnetic strengths and ancestral regulator of the conscience flows, MORKOBOT has returned to the Earth through his three messengers Lin, Lan, Len, brutally subdued to his will.
MORKOBOT is a totally suggestive instrumental sonic monster. A magmatic and liquid atmosphere lead the listener to a psychedelic and chaotic world in which vibrations become dense like glue, light and darkness are continuously turning in a nonstop changing lysergic noise. Musically, this Italian trio is the perfect mid-point between robotic mechanisms and organic humanity. From John Zorn to Black Sabbath, the Melvins vs. Dyse, Don Caballero meets Lightning Bolt in an alien delirium… this is MORKOBOT.
2011 presents MORKOBOT bringing forth their heaviest, most focused and adventurous music ever. Enter, Morbo — Latin for “disease.” Consisting of seven cacophonous songs in which the psychedelic attitude of the first trilogy of MORKOBOT‘s albums — Morkobot (2005), Mostro (2006), and Morto (2008) — Morbo is dried to expose the bones and nerves of a more intricate, but at the same time more straightforward and focused sound, as always skillfully assembled simply by two bass guitars and a drum kit, and devoid of vocals.
