The COMMON GRAVE debut album, "Il male di vivere", is an ambitious and profound concept album about the "spleen", the suffering of everyday life. It’s possible to consider a long suite of 65 minute, divided in 8 long chapters, where all tracks are linked together (this means no silence between each tracks) and where there's a perfect equilibrium between dark black metal, avantgarde touches and acoustic passages. An imaginary journey between early SHINING, FORGOTTEN TOMB and even DRUDKH. A complex album that unveils itself listening after listening, offering many moments of rare beauty. Everything supported by an excellent performance of these skilled musicians and a professional sound. If you are looking for evolved depressive/dark black metal, COMMON GRAVE can become your therapy to get your daily dose of sorrow. 1st album.
