1782 SIGN TO HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS: PREMIERE WITCH HAUNTING SINGLE FROM UPCOMING DEBUT ALBUM Due out May 24th 2019!
It was a cold December day in 2018, when Marco Nieddu and Gabriele Fancellu formed a Doom band called 1782, in honor of all the “witches” murdered by the bigoted minds of many generations. Just a month later, the band entered the studio to record the single “She Was A Witch”, released by Electric Valley Records in within the same month. Only a few days after its release, the single turned out to be a great success, especially on social media and by listeners of the genre. On February 8th, 1782 started recording their homonymous debut album with Alfredo Carboni at the RKS studios in Ossi, Sardini, and inked a worldwide record deal with the leading cult & fuzz rock label Heavy Psych Sounds Records!
May 24th 2019 will see 1782 release their self-titled debut of a doom metal masterpiece, dedicated to a lady called Anna Göldi, who was condemned, tortured and killed, in one of the last witchcraft trials happened in Europe. 1782 deal with macabre themes: from spells to ruthless torture, from the pleasure of sex to the most perfidious revenge. This record got seven tracks of pure Doom Metal sounds with mega-riff Stoner Doom intervals, accompanied by a rhythm section of powerful drums, intense bass and super-fuzzy guitars. The band’s first full-length album also features high class guest musicians such as BLACK RAINBOWS ‘Gabriele Fiori shredding a blistering guitar solo in ‘She Was A Witch’, guest vocals by Alfredo Carbon of RAIKINA or Nico Sechi on Hammond.
Today 1782 are proudly sharing with us a first single to the track ‘Oh Mary’! Says the band: „The lyrics of this song tell the story of a woman, who really existed and joined the circle of Sardinian legends. Maria, forced to marry an old man and pointed out by the women of her village because she was pregnant, decides to kill herself by throwing into a well. According to the myth, Maria kidnapped the children of all the women who had humiliated her, while taking them to her grave to feed on their bodies.“
