Italian post-rock/metal bands RIAH and POSTVORTA will join forces to release the RIAHPSTVRT split album. The record features one song per band plus a collaborative suite track.
Longtime friends Riah and Postvorta had to stop their live activities due to the pandemic. In this context they decided to join their ideas in a long suite melting the two bands’ souls, dreamy and ambient the former, heavy and aggressive the latter. The result is a 16-minutes long track inspired by and illustration that then became the split cover art (by Davide Brioschi), merging post-rock, post-metal and soundtrack-like avant-garde.
The release is completed by one extra song per band that has never been released on physical format. The tracks are “Epidermide” by Riah, first recording with the band’s new three-guitar line-up, and “Hollow” by Postvorta.
