I’ve lost count of the the number of times that I’ve reviewed or featured this LIVE album from Italian Psych/Doom/Stoner Rockers – L’Ira Del Baccano. Si Non Sedes iS - LIVE MMVII is the album that perhaps started my love affair with Instrumental Doom Metal and perhaps the band as well. I first came across this band back in 2008 when I first became aware of the album. L’Ira Del Baccano offered this album as a free download even back then. Even when bands offering free albums was pretty much uncommon compared to now.

The album totally blew my mind with it’s non-stop delivery of epic psychedelic Doom/Stoner Metal sounds that sees the band adding elements of trippy Sludge Rock on the later stages of the album.

Si Non Sedes iS - LIVE MMVII is one of my all-time favourite LIVE albums that I still listen to this day. If you’re a fan of Instrumental Rock/Metal then this is an album you cannot ignore. Songs such as Doomdance, 875 and the intense 18 minute epic Tempus Inane Flago Requiem Spatiumque Furori still has the power to excite and leave you in a hypnotic drugged out trance.

Now in 2018 the band have finally decided to re-release the album on Vinyl. Plus the band have added two songs to the album as well. So you’re treated to almost 70 minutes of top-class Italian Psychedelic Doom/Stoner Metal from one of the best instrumental bands around.

I’ve been a long-time fan and champion of the band and I was kinda honoured when the band asked me to do a press release for this reissue. So I’m going to post what I wrote for the album below. As I feel it best describes the album:

Why should you be excited for a Vinyl Reissue of a Live Album that was released in 2007 and one that was criminally ignored when it was originally released.. Well the answer is simple. L'Ira Del Baccano released a heavy spaced out and psychedelic classic riff-fest that is Si Non Sedes iS ...LIVE

This live album was ahead of it’s time when it was released. As the band fused heavy doom metal riffs against a Psychedelic Stoner/Space Rock backdrop.

You never really heard anything like this back in 2007/08 which is when I first came across the band. The heavy psychedelic guitars instantly draw you in from the epic opening sounds of DOOMDANCE and right upto the heavy sludgy guitars of the 18 minute epic - Tempus Inane Flago, Requiem Spatiumque Furori . If you’re a fan of Instrumental Psychedelic Stoner Rock then accept no substitute these guys are the real deal and L’IRA DEL BACCANO are your new cosmic overlords that you need in your life right now….”

You know what to do…..
