More information about Fire Blades From The Tomb
Ponte Del Diavolo are blessed with a taste for the dark arts. These Italians weld doom and black metal into a sleek but towering force that’s just as cruel as the infamously steep bridge that medieval peasants has to cross on the way to their home country.

Fire Blades From The Tomb is out February 16, 2024.
“Nocturnal Veil” billows with gloomy clarinet. But the band’s new single really shows off their bad side. Cymbals clank like chains through a pitch-black dungeon, while the riffs crack with the patient speed of a whip or the pointed finger of a siren.
“Everything is nothing”, Erba Del Diavolo chants, calling you into the void. Her croon is bewitching, beguiling and all-too-inviting.
“Let yourself be carried away by a dark mantra that brings with it images of annihilation”, says Ponte Del Diavolo. “Immensity overwhelms us, we are null”.
Early praise for Ponte Del Diavolo
“A rhythm section that sounds like thundering hooves; music that dangerously rings and swirls, like fleeing from something fatal” – No Clean Singing
“What strikes me most about the album is the sheer genre bending ability of this band. One minute, you think that you are listening to Doom Metal, and then turn the screw and another sound materializes” – Metal Temple
