Before we launch into today’s feature, I’d like to say that I’ve been to Torino (Turin) and it’s a lovely city – well worth a visit. Remember the rooftop car chase in the original and best The Italian Job? Filmed there. Turns out they also have a few good bands, too…
We’re from Torino, Italia
How did you meet?
Davide was a long-time friend of my girlfriend
How long have you been playing as a band?
Before you get sick of being asked… where does the band name come from?
I have chosen it because I like the contrasts
What are your influences?
Main metal and progressive rock
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
We have a lot of different experiences in playing different band and genres and listen to a lot of stuff so I put together all my influences in my music and Davide too, as a drummer and playing for 25 years
Do you have any particular lyrical themes?
The album is a concept, each song represents human beings struggling to live in a role in this world, or having just different situations and problems in modern and future times.
What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?
We have played local places for the most, I’m planning to do more in the near future
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
I think that playing with metronome and basses is also very useful but sometimes it may cause some problems
What kit do you use / guitars do you play / etc.
I mainly play Ibanez rga guitars and Cort basses
What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?
Yes, we have three singles and are planning to release the whole album at the end of 2020
What are your plans for 2020?
Keep promoting and finishing the album of course, with the best production we can have
If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!
Of course, Tool for the big one and I think Feronia from Torino is a great band
