Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars MALOMBRA are an Italian band who were active from 1993 to 2001 releasing three studio albums. "Our Lady Of The Bones" is the middle album from 1996. I was so surprised to see that they released a new album "T.R.E.S." in 2023 because it's been a while. I have been putting this one off because of it's 78 minute length and also I'm just not into the music for the most part. I laughed at one of the Vendors who was selling this record describing it as music you would listen to while drawing a pentagram on your floor. Yes this is dark with male vocals that shout the lyrics, just not a fan. A rather large band with two guitarists, bass, drums, flute, violin, keyboards and female singers.

The Goth community latched onto this one apparently which I certainly understand, sort of like them latching onto THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS in the 80's. For me this album brought to mind Italians RUNAWAY TOTEM and GARDEN WALL for various reasons like the vocals, dark sound, production and guitar. Others mention DEVIL DOLL as a comparison. The title track is by far the longest at over 19 minutes and there's even a place when Ka-Spel came to mind with the vocals around 12 minutes in. We get some samples added which I like including that squeaky door opening to start the album as the wind blows but this is mostly flute and percussion and a track I like. The only other song I'm into is "Stonehenge" at over 7 minutes. It's mellow and melodic with female vocal melodies.

Funny but I really don't like the "sound" of this one and the two bands I mentioned earlier I would describe most of their albums the same way. 3 stars is all I got.
