Δελτίο τύπου: «Undeground Symphony is proud to announce the forthcoming release of "Ancient Tales", the debut album of Crystal Skull, one-man band devoted to Teutonic Power-Speed ​​Metal, created by the mind of guitarist / bassist Claudio The-Reaper (Black Raven, Sacro Ordine dei Cavalieri di Parsifal, Akroterion, Violent Assault).

"Ancient Tales" was born as the first of three chapters of a fantasy concept, where, through 9 songs, we will discover glimpses of an untold story featuring three fearless adventurers in a ruined world devastated by the horrible invasions of the dark legions.

The songs are born from the inspiration and passion in Claudio's Teutonic Power-Speed ​​Metal, we can mention historical bands such as Running Wild, Gamma Ray, Blind Guardian, Accept, X-Wild, Rage, Helloween, Heavens Gate, Grave Digger, Primal Fear, Stormwarrior.

All the artwork on the album was done by the magical pencil of Fabio Babich, an appreciated cartoonist of the "Dragonero" comic book by Sergio Bonelli Editore, who has masterfully managed to bring back the atmospheres and stories of the songs on paper.

The recordings was done by Marco Falanga (Overtures, Moonlight Haze) with the participation of various friends such as Carlo and Davide (Sacro Ordine dei Cavalieri di Parsifal), Andrea Sax (Revoltons), Marco Rosa and Jonathan Asmodeus Garofoli (Azrath-11).

The mastering was done by Alberto Melinato at Bridge Audio Productions. First edition will be released in a deluxe 6-panel digipack CD, and later it will also be available in other formats, in a limited edition for collectors.»

Claudio "The Reaper": «The project "Crystal Skull" was born out of my passion for Teutonic Power / Speed Metal from the 80's and 90's, a truly golden age for the genre, featuring bands that still remain unrivalled to this very day, such as Running Wild, Accept, Grave Digger, Blind Guardian, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Scanner, Rage, Heavens Gate, X-Wild ect. The original idea for the project came up in 2007.

At that time I used to play as a guitarist in Black Raven (Heavy Metal) and as a bass player in Violent Assault (Thrash / Black Metal). Finding the right people to form such a band in the local area was an impossible task. I thus decided to make the most of it and I quickly learned to compose songs on my own.

That led to countless songs being written and arranged (enough for 3-4 records), up to the point I decided it was high time to record a full-length album. Therefore, in 2017 I decided to take some time off and spent quite some time selecting the most suitable songs to be included on the debut.

This is why the record includes songs orinally written between 2008 and 2015 (hence the title "Ancient Tales"). At present I play the bass in "Sacro Ordine dei Cavalieri di Parsifal" (Heavy Metal Thunderpicking) and in "Akroterion" (Doom / Black Metal).

If there is ever going to be a full lineup behind Crystal Skull that will only be after the second album. Which is already in the process of being written and that will almost certainly be titled "Dragons & Steel".

May the Lords of Crystal ride with you...

...May The Lords Of Skull rise again!!!»
