Dark Quarterer - "Gladiator" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Dark Quarterer "Pompei"
Την δισκογραφική τους επιστροφή μετά από πέντε χρόνια γνωστοποίησαν οι Dark Quarterer. Ο διάδοχος του album "Ithaca" (Απρίλιος 2015) και έβδομος συνολικά δίσκος των Ιταλών metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "Pompei" κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στις αρχές Νοεμβρίου.

Ως προς την θεματολογία του album η μπάντα την περιγράφει κάπως έτσι: «a concept album detailing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, Dark Quarterer has crafted an album of high drama and impeccable musicianship with Pompei!»

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!”»

  1. Καλυτερο απο οτι περιμενα, λες να εχουμε την εκπληξη?

    1. Έκπληξη γιατί; Δεν μ' έχουν απογοητεύσει ποτέ οι Dark Quarterer. Ότι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει είναι σε συγκεκριμένα στάνταρντ ποιότητας. Εκτός κι αναφέρεσαι στο ύφος της μπάντας...

  2. Επικό καραέπος! Avanti maestro!

  3. Νομίζω ότι ο Kane αναφερόταν στο μουσικό ύφος του νέου τραγουδιού μιλώντας για έκπληξη. Τον κόβω περισσότερο των επικών στιγμών των Dark Quarterer και λιγότερο του προγκ όπως είναι τα μεταγενέστερα. Το κομμάτι σκίζει.

    1. Δεν μπορείς να πεις, έχουμε γατόνια αναγνώστες (σλουρπ, σλουρπ)!!!

      ΥΓ. Προς υπεράσπισή μου να πω ότι το ανέφερα κι εγώ στην απάντησή μου ("Εκτός κι αναφέρεσαι στο ύφος της μπάντας"). Απλά δεν το ανέλυσα τόσο...

  4. Σε καλό δρόμο βρισκόμαστε. Όχι πως είχα αμφιβολία δηλαδή.
