To celebrate the release the band unveils the official video for the second single “Abracamacabra”.
The video was created and edited by DI’AUL’s drummer Andrea “Rex” Ornigotti, and it’s based on an idea conceived by Andrea “Rex” Orinigotti and the frontman Cosimo “MoMo” A. Cinieri.
“This Black Sabbath oriented song is a melancholic reflection on the acquiescent condition of our society: passive to change and unable to choose the good for itself, begging for a freedom it does not know how to enjoy. A paradoxical reality where the clowns rule and over a barrel we look at the rifle ready to kill us“, comments the band about the new single “Abracamacabra”.
Previously DI’AUL released the video for the first single “Thou Crawl”. Watch the video starring Alice Azzarelli and directed by Michele Canevari here: https://youtu.be/69p-hPfLeCU
“Abracamacabra” was recorded at Angelo Studio in Garlasco (Italy) by Marco Barusso (Lacuna Coil, Coldplay, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Heavy Metal Kids, and more) and mixed by Barusso at BRX Studios in Milan, while Marco D’Agostino took care of the mastering at 96Khz Studio in Milan.

“There is a stillness on the roof of the void which makes you forget, even for a moment, that you are going to fall in. ‘Abracamacabra’ tells the outburst of seven characters who wanted everything but got nothing. They act with strength before falling definitively. It is not a defeat of them, but an extreme attempt leading to their own concrete awareness. On this album we did not want to leave anything to chance. Every note, every beat or rhythm are essential. The lyrics and the music were pondered in order to spread the emotional power of every story told. ‘Abracamacabra’ is the initiatory formula of a new ritual”, says the band.
The track listing for “Abracamacabra” reads as follows:
1. Thou Crawl
2. This Quiet
4. De Profundis
5. The Losers’ River
6. La Notte di Valpurga
7. Time Of No Return
Founded in 2010, Milan (Italy) based doom band DI’AUL plays heavy, catchy music underlaid with subtle complexities: a mix of ’70s rock songwriting and ’90s metal groove. DI’AUL released the EP “GV 12.31” in 2010, followed by their second album “And Then Came The Monsters” (2013), “Garden of Exile” (2015, This Is Core Records), and “Nobody’s Heaven” (2018, Argonauta Records).
The band played several gigs in Italy and across Europe, supporting Crowbar and Et Moriemur among others.
At the end of 2019, along with the new drummer Andrea “Rex” Ornigotti” (Gunjack and Conviction), the band recorded two new songs “The House of the Edge of the World” and “Three Ladies” released as a LP split with Mos Generator (2020, Argonauta Records).
