Voci dal Passato CS is a reissue of the debut self-released album by Tony Tears (who at one point was the bassist of Italian Gothic-Doom metal band Abysmal Grief). This eerie and heavy Gothic-Doom album might seem like a strange release for Seed Stock considering the past releases, but considering the quality of Voci, you can see it fits in nicely with the recurring theme of primitivism, simplicity, and clarity of vision.Tony Tears has something in common with his Italian cohorts in Abysmal Grief as well as a lot of the older Italian doom bands appearing on the Black Widow label, but the greater appeal here is the utterly stripped down song structures and haunting raw atmosphere created by the clean vocals, drum machine, and keyboards. Like a lot of other Italian doom bands, there is some transcendental ambient element floating in all the songs. It seems they were never able to shake the aura of 70s Italian horror movies, or the sick heat of the desert in Spaghetti Westerns and Mr. Tears is no exception. However, Voci keeps things braindead simple in terms of guitar and it's his haunting spirit voice that drives the songs into something of deeper personality.
