Occasionally, some really great musical gems come out of the dark fogs of Northern Italy, and his band from Mantova certainly counts in that category. Well, actually the city (with some 50,000 inhabitants) is an exception in the usually very industrial north of Italy, as being surrounded by three lakes and having a rich and beautiful historical center (the town dating back to the 6th century!) rather makes it a touristic attraction.
This North-Italian band was founded in 2005, when the 4 members of the act previously known as Morphina decided to gear their music in a different direction, namely a Glam/ Sleeze Rock/ metal with lyrical “horror” elements.
