The Venice-based metalcore band was formed in 2008 and issued a demo called Until My Last Breath. Another one, this time self-titled, came out in 2011. Nicolò joined in 2014 replacing Francesco Peretti who had replaced Andrea Scarpa. Metal Scrap Records issued Italy-based (now) death metal band From The Shores’ Of Apathy album in 2016.
FROM THE SHORES - OF APATHY - METAL SCRAP
This is a debut by this Italian quintet. Of Apathy starts with a short intro that is unlike most other intros because it feels like a song, it is almost 43 seconds of fast riffing and fast drumming. It is rather aptly titled as This Ain't Another Feast For Crows. The intro jumps straight into the first full song, Heaven's Dark Harbinger. From The Shores play an At The Gates and Americanized style that is something close to melodic death metal. The songs are mostly on the shorter side, at least they feel that way as the aforementioned song to song transitions are no frills and direct. There is little slowing down here, the middle and end of Incest Of The Wretched are short exceptions, the start of the intermission named Opus XIII is one too. The vocals are a mix of deep growls and screams; Luca Cassone has the Tomas Lindberg sound down pat. Not fully unexpected that originality is difficult to produce and From The Shores doesn't break any new ground either. I, The Firebreather and Weakness Of The Flesh see the band add a small dose of speedy 'blackened' metal to Of Apathy. The latter is over eight minutes and by far the longest song on this release, and unsurprisingly the second half of it includes a classical sounding section. – Anna Tergel
