Jonas Nilsson – bass and vocals, Hampus Henningsson and Elias Mellberg – guitars and drummer Pontus Svensson from Sweden deliver us a heavy material with roots anchored both in the deep sludge of southern USA and the other planted in the deep crevices of doom-metal. Signo Rojo’s promo album can be listen and download at their Bandcamp page and “name your price” means you actually can download their album even for free, but I believe any artistic effort deserves to be rewarded. (Giving one dollar for example it makes no sense, PayPal and Bandcamp having 40 revenue from any transaction and by transferring from PayPal to the current bank account the money the artist loose a few more percents, so, in the end to the band will not attain more than half of the original amount.)
Blekinge, the name of the part of Sweden Signo Rojo hails from loosely translates to “Pale nothing”, on the other hand Signo Rojo on other hand are spanish for “Red Sign”.. The Band proper was formed in the late autumn of 2009, when the four members met at a local metal-show. They began writing almost immediatly and spent the following winter and spring cooked up in the rehersalroom constructing and shaping a dynamic live-set that continues to evolve to this day. The following summer they started their crusade of gathering as much live experience as possible with their hopes set high on a touring future.
Their Promo Album consist of 6 gloomy, contorted tracks, heavy, cutting age guitar riffs and smashing tempos shifting into spacy, psychedelic taste like passages in a very intense and colorful flow. This is a powerful and consistent material, memories the Signo Rojo name, they aiming high.
