The New Album
The new album "Elements" is much more direct than the previous.
We had a lot of care in eliminating all the frills, leaving more space
for melody. The arrangements are very essential even if the harmonics
choices are not foregone.
The main objective in the realization of this work was to produce very compact and easy listening songs.
In some track there are still some return to metal and prog sounds as
in "Phoenix" or “Panic Room”, and in others songs there is always the
ability of the band to create emotional rock singles/ballad. But
overall the sound is Rock.
Throughout the album you can hear influences from 70’ and 90’ Rock more modern sounds through blues and metal.
The songs "27", "Cars", "The Temple" were inspired by the world of motorsport, a theme dear to Band.
"27" dedicated to the F1 Ferrari
"The Temple" is dedicated to the speed temple Monza circuit
"A-Matrix" was inspired by earthquake in Amatrice in 2016
Other songs are inspired by the experience of real life
The songs was written and arranged between 2015 and 2016.
The recording began in the second half of 2016.
It was produced by Frenk S.C and it was mixed in UK by Chris Sheldon
(producer of Biffy Clyro and sound engineer of Foo Fighters/Skunk
Anansie) that defined a more modern sound.
“Elements” was mastered by John Webber to the historical Air Studio in London
Alchemy, another theme dear to the Band, even back in the aesthetics of the second album.

result in music of all these 4 elements that have passed through our
The armchair of the "Elements" cover is the phase of the alchemical
