In 1782 Anna Göldi was condemned, she was tortured and killed, this was the last witchcraft trial in Europe.
Marco Nieddu (24Moons / Raikinas) and Gabriele Fancellu (Raikinas) have formed a doom band called 1782 in honor of all the witches murdered.
Italian occult doom merchants 1782 sign to Heavy Psych Sounds for the release of their sophomore full-length From The Graveyard. It will be released on March 26th, and you can hear a creepy first track entitled Priestess Of Death now!
1782 about the new song: «Accabadora is a figure that existed in Sardinia. She was a woman dressed in black who put an end to people’s suffering. The last testimony of her intervention dates back to 1952. She wandered around the village at night in search of open doors, if she found one it meant that inside that house a life was about to extinguish. She had her wooden hammer and with it, gave a strong blow to the back of the head, putting an end to the person’s suffering. She was also called the Priestess Of Death. This song wants to convey the feeling you could have while waiting for this woman — anxiety, torment and perhaps peace».
1782`s new album From The Graveyard is eight tracks and 43 minutes of pure occult doom, taking you into the darkest alleys of the unknown. The album was recorded straight after their Doom Sessions Vol.2 release, and stands as their heaviest and creepiest material to date. 1782 invited their friends Nico Sechi on Hammond organ and Alfredo Carboni on synth. As for their eponymous debut, the artwork was designed by SSCVLT.
From The Graveyard was recorded, mixed and mastered in November 2020 by Alfredo Carboni at RKS Studios in Ossi, Sardinia (Italy). It will be released on 26th March, 2021 via Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
