We are very happy to announce a new band and their debut album. Riah is a post-rock band from Bologna, Italy which was formed in November 2015. Their inspiration comes from differents genres and they try to blend the heaviness of the post-metal and math-core with the atmosphere and the dreamlike sensations of the post-rock and of the ambient.
Autumnalia tells about the Fall season as the beginning of the transience of life. The band members say: “Our music starts with the idea that Autumn is not the ghost of death that crawls on summer’s path, but it’s the very chance to re-start, to die and to rise as a new being, a new spirit, a new mind.”
Riah describes their sound as “a mixture of beauty and brutality” that shout out loud from their music. And that’s what Autumnalia is: The result of the hard work on the instruments, months spent trying, destroying and rebuilding the songs; months filled with mistakes, wrong turns, sweat that had taken the band to give birth at this album: a collection of songs that tell a lot about humanity, about the inner struggle of every human.
