Ossuary is from neo-Latin and French ossuaire is a bone house or bone house / room, alternatively a container, where in some church areas or consecrated places bones from the deceased are stored after the original grave has been deleted.
Italy’s dark psychedelic occult doom rock outfit The Ossuary have just released their new single Forever Into The Ground. The song is taken from their third full-length, Oltretomba, released on November 12 2021 via Supreme Chaos Records.

The band pulled out another swinging rocker and threw it as a punch in the face of the listener to prove their ability in writing up-tempo songs filled with that psyched out occult vibe coming off the whole new album Oltretomba.
As ideal sequel to the first two records, Oltretomba is a 54 minutes album of darker heavy rock with a more 70’s prog and psychedelic approach. The Italian word Oltretomba stands for the underworld but is also a tribute to the golden age of Italy’s cinematic culture in the 70’s and 80’s with horror movies by Fulci, Argento, Bava and the music of Morricone.
The magical, strong-willed and at the same time obscure attraction is also inherent in the third album of The Ossuary.The album tells of the various abysses of the human being, sometimes touching occult realms.
The four-piece creates its own niche in hard rock, pairs the classic twin guitars with an earthy sound, classic rock elements with a certain proximity to the prog of the 70’s are celebrated here with fresh power.
Once again, the Italians The Ossuary consistently pursue and refine their own ideal of songs that make the dead dance. And it is a damn cool party, on which “Oltretomba” takes you here.
