Visioni Gotiche is a dark-horror Italian band that has already released four records and several soundtracks for indie horror movies. “Cancellata del tempo” has been self-released by their own choice and it is not easily labelled. It mixes different genres like gothic metal and ambient with prog and new wave influences. The atmospheres are quite gloomy, thick and lead the listeners into another temporal and spacial dimension that recalls other Italian groups like Jacula.
The album is based on a concept written by the keyboardist Roby Tav. The story tells of a very beautiful girl kidnapped by the local lord who tortures her. She will be helped by a handmaid to find some old magic books and eventually find revenge and her true love. The opener is the title-track played by Andrea Cardellino from doom band Impero delle Ombre that sets the mood of the record. Continue reading »

Visioni Gotiche (“Gothic Visions”) is an Italian project born in 2007 having as creative aim the composition of dark ambient mixed with electronics and a little bit of gothic metal. In “Il Segreto del Demone” (“The Secret of The Demon”), the music is entwined with a horror short story of the same name, which is contained in the album artwork.
Amazing decadent atmospheres, gothic scenarios and Halloween movies are the main sources of inspiration of this sort of audio-book. In the beginning two CDs should have been released separately, but now they have been released as one double album and some tracks have been rearranged to let Laura‘s vocals shine throughout it. Claudio Simonetti (composer of most of Dario Argento‘s movies soundtracks) is at the foundations of their sound and you can hear several different influences: metal, rock, progressive, ambient, horror so it is quite difficult to label it, but the result is very original and female vocals are quite versatile, beautiful and distinctive.

November 18, 2012 – Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the BUTCHER BABIES to their worldwide family of artists. Hailing from Los Angeles, the BUTCHER BABIES have emerged as one of the biggest draws on the Sunset Strip, their incendiary blend of heavy metal and horror-inspired theatrics inciting crowds worldwide. Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd – named two of the year’s ‘Hottest Women In Rock’ by Revolver Magazine – the blood-splattered band left their mark on the United Kingdom in June, appearing on the Download festival and supporting Anthrax in Cardiff. They returned to America as direct support for Otep in fall, and are wrapping up their first headlining tour tonight in front of a hometown crowd at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip. The band – vocalists Harvey and Shepherd, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner – will be performing with labelmates In This Moment tomorrow night in Las Vegas. “Century Media has been a huge supporter of BUTCHER BABIES for a long time, and it feels natural to join their tight knit family,” said the band of their signing. “It’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other bands that have inspired us for so long. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this union.” The Butcher Babies‘ track “Axe Wound” is currently in rotation on Sirius XM Liquid Metal, and their short movie/video fo the track “Mr. Slowdeath” can be watched here. The band are currently at work on their full-length debut, which is slated for worldwide release in summer 2013 via Century Media Records. Tour Dates: 11/19/12 – Hollywood, CA @ The Roxy 11/20/12 – Las Vegas, NV @ Vinyl (with In This Moment)
