Abrasive Peace


Oporto, Portugal-based experimental death metal stalwarts COLOSSO have recently inked a deal with the Canadian underground label Mulligore Production. The band's debut release on this roster is a double-trouble ordeal, comprised of two different versions of the initial approach. ''Abrasive Peace'' showcases all eight tracks with vocals, and "Peaceful Abrasiveness" is fully instrumental. In this exclusive package, you will get the best of both worlds. The CD will be available for pre-orders through on May 7th, and will be officially released worldwide on June 5th in regular jewel-case format. "Abrasive Peace" was mixed and mastered by Paulo Lopes (one of the best rock/metal producers in Portugal) at Soundvision Studios in Portugal. It was previously self released in March 2012, in a very limited edition of 300 digipack copies. The first single, "The Epiphany", can be streamed via the SoundCloud player below.
"Abrasive Peace" track listing:
1. Anthem To Chaos
2. Demolish To Rebuild
3. Pattern Of Disconnection
4. The Epiphany
5. In Turmoil
6. Thou Shall Never Be Benevolent
7. Headless Endures
8. Unplugged From The World


Colosso was founded in January 2011 by Max Tomé.

With "Abrasive Peace/Peaceful Abrasiveness", the initial idea was to write a Death Metal album where many other influences and soundscapes would fit in.
In latter March 2011, Dirk Verbeuren (best known from Soilwork, Scarve, Devin Townsend, Jeff Loomis, among many others) was invited to play drums for the album (latter named "Abrasive Peace").

"Abrasive Peace" was then mixed and mastered by Paulo Lopes.
Dirk Verbeuren weighs in:

"I truly believe death metal fans are gonna be seriously stoked with COLOSSO! This is gonna be a great band and a kick ass record, I'm very proud to be a part of it!!"
Max Tomé adds:

"Musically, this album is the sum of four of my favourite bands: Hate Eternal, Decapitated, Meshuggah and Devin Townsend.

Lyrically, "Abrasive Peace" focuses on several themes, such as the butterfly effect, the search for perfection, or the inner need to disconnect from everything and just forget about the world."
