Mountain Legacy is an album exploring something fundamental to humanity: isolation. The illusion of silence, which is a natural non-existing concept, is perfectly described by synthesized sounds and noises of the newly acquired band member Claudio Rocchetti (In Zaire). These sounds are missing on the first self-titled Deadsmoke release (HPS 032CD/LP/LTD-LP, 2016), so now the old tracks have been enriched and new ones have been composed providing a consistent psych-disturbed synthesized sound. Six brand new tracks featuring deep guitar fuzz and growling bass take the listener on a journey through the woods, alternating lightly groovy rhythms with sludge-doom cadences. The album has been recorded live by Fabio at NoLogo, a studio located near Bolzano and surrounded by nature and a cemetery. This location and the inspiring recording room, fully covered in wood, carpets and soft lights, made it possible to arrange the recording as a sort of inspired jamming session, providing feelings of isolation, freedom, and nothingness. Everybody experiencing isolation and solitude on the mountain knows that the mind is constantly speaking. With a language made of noises. And the mountain itself is speaking. With a language made of slow, deep, grating, growling movements. This is what we try to represent with this album: a translation of how isolation can be felt. This is a precious legacy. The legacy of the previous album, the legacy of the mountain.
