Italy's FATE stream new CALIGARI EP at "Deaf Forever" magazine's website

Today, Italian metal/punk alchemists  Fate  stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second EP,  II , at   Deaf Forever   magazine's website . Set for international release on September 30th via  Caligari Records   on cassette tape format, hear   Fate 's  II  in its entirety exclusively   HERE .

Hailing from Padua and formed in 2018, the four members of Italy's   Fate  have a rich and varied background in numerous metal and punk bands the past decade-plus. Coming together under the simple-yet-stately moniker of   Fate , their intention from the beginning has been to honor ancient-yet-eclectic cults under that wider umbrella of heavy metal and punk rock. Thus, the influences of Celtic Frost, GISM, and Cirith Ungol all bear equal importance upon their unique aesthetic.

The first fruits of that aesthetic came with   Fate 's first EP,  I , which was released in a super-limited cassette version of just 33 copies. The cover art, skewing the classic speed metal slogan of Banzai Records, was indicative of   Fate 's faithful-yet-idiosyncratic approach to metalpunk, and they've eclipsed that feat with the even-stronger  II .

Featuring three tracks in a swift-yet-satisfying 11 minutes,   Fate 's second strike manages to engage in a narrative way despite its short length. Opener "Where the Gods Go to Die" has a crypt-lurking stomp that's eerily mournful; then "Mask of Silver Death" fluidly shifts tempos and back - and often - whipping forth a fury one minute, readying for battle the next; and closer "Demiurge" brings the EP to a dramatic end, literally ripping across the battlefield with a triumphant gallop and capped by a spectral synth outro. Through it all, the quartet ooze attitude and charisma, evincing a sound and style that seems aeons-old but simultaneously strangely fresh. Recorded and mixed by Alex Rossi and mastered by Arthur Rizk, one could successfully argue that the production is utilized as a second instrument here, but   Fate  have the songwriting chops in spades - and they're just getting started!
