Δελτίο τύπου: «Italian Metal Veterans Dark Quarterer join Cruz Del Sur Music; new album ‘Pompei’ coming this fall. Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of one of Italy’s longest-running metal bands, Dark Quarterer. The label will release this November, the band’s seventh studio album, “Pompei”, on Compact Disc, Gatefold LP with an amazing artwork provided by Italian Artist Paolo Girardi.

Dark Quarterer and Cruz Del Sur have a previous working relationship - the label released the vinyl versions of the band’s “Symbols” (2018) and “Ithaca” (2015) studio albums. “It was a pretty obvious decision for us to make,” says bassist / vocalist Gianni Nepi. “We’re honored to join a label with so many great bands and look forward to getting ‘Pompei’ in front of an even bigger audience.

“Pompei” was recorded this January and February at the band’s own W.R.S. Studios in Piombino, Italy. Vocals and keyboards were tracked in May by sound engineer Andrea Ramacciotti, with mastering handled by Alex Marton of First Line Studio in Follonica.

According to Nepi, “Pompei” takes their sound to the next level, expanding on the bold, classic metal-on-prog sound they have been purveying since 1980. “The new album is cruder, perhaps a bit more visceral and intense. It has a dramatic atmosphere that surrounds the entire album - even during the softest of moments.”

Now at the 40-year mark as a band, Dark Quarterer, who also comprise drummer Paolo "Nipa" Ninci, guitarist Francesco Sozzi and keyboardist Francesco Longhi, has faced many obstacles, but the one thing that has kept them together is their friendship, something that has helped the band maintain the same lineup since 2003.

“We have great passion and love for the music we make,” finishes Nepi. “Also, the friendship between the four of us really is the glue that keeps us together. Without it, we’re not sure we would have lasted this long!”»

Dark Quarterer: «The adventure of Pompeii, Dark Quarterer’s new album, started like this: recordings in various locations to make the most of the environmental sounds. And then: the Metropolitan Theatre, the Cloister of Sant' Antimo and finally the Recording Studio WRS. The whole was immortalized by the beautiful filming and editing by Tony Loiero and with the help of Valter Suich for the shooting with the Drone.
