They have recently entered the SPVN Studios, under the supervision of producer Stefano “Orkid” Santi – Cripple Bastards, Forgotten Tomb, Hiss from the Moat, to record their first full length album Always Together, which will be released as soon as the current health emergency is over. Taste their sound below and stay tuned for more details on the new record!
The album is conceived as a tribute to the band’s brother Massimo Bianchi – K-Again, Traces of You, Embrace Destruction – unfortunately no longer with us. It was written between March 2019 and January 2020, with equal contribution by all members. The songs were composed in studio from scratch, with the aim of putting together the various genres Massimo has performed in his musical career, such as Heavy Hardcore, Post Hardcore and Nu Metal.
