OvO from Italy has always been one of the most active bands in the worldwide noisy rock scene. They have been known pretty much everywhere through their 900 and more gigs, their large amount of releases, including albums, singles, collaborations, tracks on compilations, dvds, and for their original, unique music. They’re a duo, formed by a little possessed singer and guitar player (Stefania Pedretti) and an enormous drummer who plays a mini-set like it was a full metal drum set. Their live performances are legendary, and they’ve played them all over the world, with extensive tours in Europe, North America, Mexico, Asia, including a lot of the main festivals.
What they do is not easy to file. It’s not noise, not metal, not doom, not punk, not rock and roll, even if there’s a little bit of all these. Certainly it’s not free nor avant nor improv. For once, we can really say that it’s a band you can’t file.
After some full lengths on their label Bar La Muerte, they release albums on American labels such as legendary Load Records and Blossoming Noise, then two albums on Supernatural Cat. Their new album “Creatura” will be released by Dio Drone.
They collaborated or played with the most important names of contemporary experimental rock music, and they worked for cinema projects (Frankenstein, Nosferatu) and theatre (“Aeneis V” by Lenz).
“Creatura” continues and developes their research on mixing heavy music with electronic sounds in a natural and personal way, keeping them as a mysterious object in the worldwide scene for 18 years.
