05) Messa – “Rubedo”
Italian doom metal outfit Messa have shared their new song “Rubedo.” The track is taken from the group’s upcoming album, Close, which is scheduled to arrive on March 11th via Svart Records.
The band comments:
“‘Rubedo’ is the song from “Close” that was mostly impacted by Flamenco music. It’s a track tied with both our previous work and the journey dimension of our new album. The lyrics are about dealing with a sense of guilt. Sometimes we harm the ones we love without realizing it, and all of a sudden we reckon with our faults and wish to heal the person we hurt.
Rubedo is a Latin word that translates to ‘redness’. It symbolizes the reunion of opposites and the manifestation of the self in its entirety. The color red has always been connected with hot-blood and sacrifice.”
