It was the year 2007 when the Apuan quintet started to carve the first plates of memory, drop by drop, step by step, forging his road to a paved path of labours and emotions, leading them to share important stages with some of the best Italian bands: Destrage, Necrodeath, Schizo, Vexed, Bejelit, Story of Jade, and many more, until 2010, when they gave birth the first self-titled EP, and the European tour supporting Necrodeath on their 25th anniversary tour.
2013 saw the release of the first full-length “Dies Irae”; from the famous Finnish mastering studios Chartmakers Studio (Volbeat, Rammstein, Apocalyptica), and under the brilliant leadership of Bakerteam Records “Dies Irae” entered mainstream distribution. It was welcomed by critics, webzines, fanzines and radios with great enthusiasm.
“Orchestral saturnine and drenched in pathos, Dies Irae is an intense experience of sound, scope and atmosphere that commands your attention before conquering your soul.” Robert Baker – The Midlands Rocks.
The Days of Wrath Tour started to promote the album, a year-and-a-half-long tour that saw the band in countries including Czech Republic, Ukraine, Estonia and Latvia; sharing stages in big clubs and festivals like Estragon in Bologna, Bingo Club in Kiev, Fontaine Palace in Liepaja, Rock Inn Somma fest, with impressive artists like Moonspell, Vader, Death, Gorguts, Skyforger and Amon Amarth.
The journey absolutely needed a brand-new chapter, ending all that had been narrated in Dies Irae. Enter “Kyrie Eleison” born at the end of 2015, the second full-length album that concludes the narrative cycle started from the first album.
