Storm{O} - Finis Terrae 12" LP

Borders can be mental, existing only in our heads, and yet feel as powerful as though they were made of barbed wire and guarded with guns. And then there are the borders that are very much physical, which can have quite visceral emotional ramifications. The furious, Italian, hardcore act STORM{O} is back in 2019 with the new album “Finis Terrae”.

If the previous records “Ere” (2018) and “Sospesi Nel Vuoto Bruceremo In Un Attimo and Il Cerchio Sara Chiuso“ (2014) were all-out cross sections of everyday life presented with audacious, pained rage, “Finis Terrae” takes on the nonsensical reality of our society. In a world where hope is vanishing, for STORM{O}, writing this record was almost a necessity, a required act. Working with SOFT MOON’s producer and sound engineer Maurizio Baggio at La Distilleria in Bassano del Grappa (Italy) helped the
band find a more cohesive and mature sound. They play a unique mixture of pulverising hardcore guided by fast, aggressive drumming. Wailing vocals in Italian are intertwined with anxious spoken words, angry shouts and desperate screams. The furious song structures lead to brilliant set breaks that mark the only spots to gasp for breath. The guitars act within the frame of dynamic songwriting that leaves space for a couple of uplifting moments, while the bass adds a discreet noise-rock edge. Over 12 songs that combine the fury and speed of old-school hardcore with the gloomiest melodies of post-hardcore, STORM{O} delivers another album that is a testament to the underground music scene.

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays). All orders placed through Dog Knights will always receive free promotional flyers, stickers, digital download codes, and maybe even a free record with larger orders, whenever possible.

Always read the item description carefully. Pre-orders are clearly noted at the top of the item description as “pre-order” along with an estimated shipping date, which is liable to change at any time due to the long process of vinyl manufacturing. This information is also added to the drop-down tab on every selectable product listing that is an active ‘pre-order’ - so it’s impossible to proceed without acknowledging. Please do not email us in June to ask where your order is, if you’ve added a product that reads ‘Due To Ship Mid-July’ to your cart.

The best way to stay up to date with active pre-order (bad news or good news), is to occasionally check our social media pages at @dogknights across all platforms. It saves both our time to quickly check these pages before emailing us asking for an update on a pre-order when we’ve been regularly updating these pages.

Need to make a change to your address? No problem, mistakes happen! Just email dogknightseu@gmail.com before your order has shipped and we will do our best to amend this in time.

If you believe your order has gone missing or arrives damaged in any form, please email dogknightseu@gmail.com along with your order #, full name + address, the date you placed the order, and any other information that could prove useful to us.

We are forever grateful to all of our customers for supporting Dog Knights and our bands. Please treat us with respect, like we will to you. Any uncalled-for aggression or rude behaviour will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly, however we deem fit.

As of 1st October 2019, PayPal changed their refund policy and will no longer refund the “transaction fees” — meaning all small businesses will actually lose money whenever a customer requests a refund. It goes without saying, but we are a small label and it’s incredibly unhelpful to ask for a refund if you’ve simply “changed your mind”. All money directly goes toward future projects and/or the band. If there’s no other choice but to issue a refund, the non-refundable fees that have already been collected by PayPal (approximately 5% of the entire order) will not be returned.

Further information can be found in our FAQ/T&C's section at the top of our store page.
