Aenima - «Never Fragile»
Digipak CDEP 2002, Equilibrium Music

A superb combination between technological artifacts and melodic song writing, augmented by spellbinding female vocals. The band have been compared in the past to the likes of Cocteau Twins, The Gathering, The Third and the Mortal, Faith and the Muse or Dead Can Dance, and now Never Fragile brings forth a sharper side of Aenima. Although they have hardly dropped the ethereal moods of their debut album, Aenima have improved their recipe which bridges the gap between a clever use of technological artefacts and conventional rock compositions with a skilled use of melody, groove and ambience.

This CDEP comes in full colour colour digipak, with varnished cover.

Hand-numbered, packaged with collages and hand-made prints. | Magic has blown its precious spores into the air. A human rite, humble and quiet, has evoked a red hot globe that gently illuminates the path toward the borders of SUNJA, the dream place where all vibrations start. Sometimes the light comes down from the sky, clear like a crystal. Sometimes it climbs slowly from the earth's depths, but it's always comforting. Crossing the thresholds of SUNJA is like landing on an uncontaminated island, its white sea-shores lapped by tepid foamy waters, inebriated with wide floral smells and saltiness in secret inland places and in caves dug from time, on top of the plateau from where it's possible to see beyond... SUNJA is creative strength enclosed in two long tracks of incredible intensity, rich in levels of knowledge, pure enchantment and beauty. The deep sound has an extraordinary symbolic and evocative power with a supreme purification owing to millenial percolations across the rocks. Music shines, beholds, resounds at the bottom of ourselves, lives and spreads out.

Observe the circular harmony of seasons in its never-ending flow. It speaks like old poetry that is familiar to the soul.

This is sound-balm for the ears, far away from daily stress and the disturbing noises of today. Volumes are low, lyrics are whispered - it's sparse, soft and dangerously seductive.

Aranos - «Magnificent magnificent»
Aranos - «Magnificent magnificent»
Hand-made paper cover CD 2001
35.00 €URO

About: "65 minute CD features double bass, violoncello, viola, violin, guitar, mandola, Bechstain and Steinway pianos, percussion, live and sampled drums, sounds recorded in Bavaria and Czech Republic amongst other places. Mezzo-soprano May-Britt Mitrovic contributes vocals on "In Soft Cavities". Regardedretarded - a three piece band recorded "Life in Bernard's Kitchen" live in Bernard's kitchen. Although there are 15 tracks they flow continuously without pauses or rather they are connected by a theme reappearing in different guises." - Brainwashed

"At first listen, I was a bit disappointed by this Aranos release, mostly because of the repetitious string sounds which commonly open several tracks. But it definitely is one of these albums which grows on you, as a unity of sound and theme, emerging from a well-balanced tracklist. At times it reminds me of his first collaboration with Nurse With Wound, 'Acts of Senseless Beauty', with unexpected sounds jumping in the middle of bass, cello, viola, violin, guitar, or mandolin layers. No surprise, you'll probably not dance on every track, but may certainly nod on various songs, thanks to colorful rhythms which lead back to the cello or piano chords pulsing all along the record. More than strings or piano, the side elements are the most efficient ? a wide variety of gentle percussions, and the haunting voice, which I find even too scarce. "Spirit Fragrance" arrives like a big surprise ? a faster-paced song in a style reminiscent of Emir Kusturica and the No Smoking Orchestra. It's tracks like these where it becomes obvious that Aranos isn't lying on the resume about his extensive musical background. A complete contrast to this, the disc's closer is a long, minimal piece of meditative music, consisting of lengthy tones often made out of percussions with subtle crumpling sounds in the background. More surprising than the music itself is its "experimental anarchy distribution" system. It will quickly be shipped to you from Aranos himself, under conditions that I'll let you discover on his website. It comes in a beautiful hand-made paper cover (made in Nepal under fair-trade agreement) with bamboo strip details and a hemp tie. This can sound strange, but really makes it."

Arcana (Sweden) - «Cantar de Procella»
Arcana - «Cantar de Procella»
CD 1997, Cold Meat Industry

13.00 €URO

Arcana's followup to their one year old debut album. They continue their mixture of so-called industrial elements and rather classical and medieval influences, and this one will no doubt be as critically acclaimed as their debut.


Arcana (Sweden) - «Le Serpent Rouge»
Arcana - «Le Serpent Rouge»
CD 2005, Projekt

13.00 €URO

On their sixth full-length release, Sweden’s Arcana leaves behind ancient Western ruins and cathedrals for Arabian deserts filled with magic and mysticism. The sound of the Middle East flows through this amazing album; Armenian duduk, dulcimer, Egyptian finger cymbals, timpani and cabasa are just part of the musical arsenal on Le Serpent Rouge, taking Arcana to a higher dimension, exploring new melodies and realms. This is Arcana as you have never heard them before!
With their lush blend of spirituality and earthly emotions, Arcana has always been compared to Dead Can Dance. The traditional sound with strings, bells and timpani, the angelic female tunes, Peter’s dark voice and the emotions behind the music have made Arcana one of the leading bands within this genre. Now Peter Bjärgö boldly ventures into the hot Arabian desert, breathing life from the baking sun and the serpent’s dance. Le Serpent Rouge envelops the listener in a powerful rhythmic sensuality; one feels the sands of the desert slowly begin to swirl, twilight falls across the dunes and in the distance perhaps a lonely nomad’s fire burns . . . just beyond its reach, one can make out the subtle movements of a great red serpent . . . edging ever closer . . .

Argine - «Umori d'autunno (Il filo spinato e le bolle di sapone)»
Digipak CD 2010, Ark Records
15.00 €URO

Six years after the last album «Le luci di Hessdalen» and some appearances in split and various artists, ARGINE come back to the scenes with an album inspired by Autumn, the season that brings with it shades of gray and short but intense days, charged of an energy which marks the return to normality after summer idleness. An awakening, an impulse, a real and harsh approach to life, a longing that exudes the sense of challenge with one's own self and with the world for a personal achievement that at times has the meaning of a conquest of always new living spaces and sometimes of pure survival. In this alternation of emotional states, the now unmistakable ARGINE sound is congenial, with lyrics that are sharp and delicate at the same time, describing the coordinates of madly contrasting emotions: «In Autumn, the falling rain lets us look and spreads in our feelings the need to follow that never ending flash: the explosion is its uproar…» [Argine – Umori d'autunno]).
The first edition comes in a beautiful digipack and it's limited to 500 copies.

…Argine follow new paths, often to be found between dreamy music fields, industrial hits, reciting female vocals, medieval melodies, classical guitar pickings and ethnic flavours. You are invited to discover a fantastic world of music experiments…

Fight Amnesia n.11 – Germany)

…A perfect fixture of acoustic guitars and haunting vocals, backed with traditional instruments such as the violin and the hurdy gurdy (a 14th century instrument) drags Italy into the ever-growing world of apocalyptic folk. The music is dreamy and emotional, very much in the same vain as Current 93 or Sol Invictus, but with the vocals in Italian they seem some what darker almost Medieval…

After 4 years and a half from the release of "Odos Eis Ouranon - La via per il cielo", a double CD splitted with the Italian band Autunna et sa Rose, ATARAXIA have decided to re-release their unique acoustic performance featuring rare, old and unreleased songs played with new arrangements in an essential evidence of crystalline purity, in a Cd called "Strange Lights" that was the name of their part of the previous 2005 album and of that peculiar performance lit up by Angelo Zanella's enigmatic copper masks. This release is meant to reach people from America and Russia offering an acoustic sound that, thanks to the recent digital mastering, can communicate, in the best way, all its evoking magic and poetry.

Oil on Canvas is a 96 pages book (14,5 x 14,5 cm, full-colour hard cover) featuring three different chapters dedicated to three inspired photographers. The photos follow three different paths: the first one, with photos by Raffaella Graziosi, is dedicated to ancient Italian houses in ruins, nobleness and beauty confronted with decay; the second, with photos by Mick Mercer, features enigmatic statues standing in wonderful English gardens and parks; the third, with photos by Livio Bedeschi, is dedicated to Mediterranean landscapes, nature and wilderness. Each image is married with Francesca Nicoli's verses and lyrics (in her mother-tongue Italian and translated into English by Giovanni Pagliari and Francesca Nicoli, French by Nicolas Ramain, Spanish by Araceli Cabrero Castel, German by Daisy Steinert and Portuguese/Brasilian by Pedro Georges Eleftheriou) and to Ataraxia's music as a collection album, featuring 14 tracks (taken from all their repertory - but not present in other collection albums -, from V.

Nosce Te Ipsum , a new steep into the ancient times of this very important medieval band from Italy !!!
The status of Ataraxia is one of the most importants worldwive, with lot of exellent albums. Now they return with an amazing re - release with another title of an long delete album. ( This is not a new album , is a re - release )
The songs were taken from the 1991 homonym Ataraxia’s demotape previously included in « Ad perpetuam rei memoriam » CD.
...the states of mind and heart collected in the pages of a voluminous book, "Prophetia". Is destiny driven by accident or by Fortune ? A Kafkian succession of questions without answer in a re-created inquisitorial trial of our times, the slow march of a humanity who tries desperately and unsuccesfully to know itself bearing the burden of its own chaotic existence and blindness. Finally, an act of rebellion and courage, an awakened consciousness that could lead to a new birth and refound harmony in the fluid cycle of Nature where every gesture and sound acquires a metaphysical value. Will we be able to transform the rought material into Gold ?

« Each of us, believe me, is just what he chooses to be »

...envelopped by the waves, dragged by the streams of the rivers, sucked by the gloomy overflowings of the lakes the echo of the up and down of many female souls repeats itself an infinite number of times, we've heard that dirge, we've made of it some songs and we are repeating the same tune like the echo of an echo to you, oh listener...
We've caught the lament of so many mermaids who feed themselves spasmodically and greedily with their own pasts, when they were of bones and flesh and now you're going to listen to the tragic legend of who is born (just after death) like an Ondina many centuries ago, in reality, someone really existed, someone else was portrayed in some books or simply perceived in our dreams.

ATARAXIA and FUTURE INSIGHTS have decided to release a collection dedicated to the water, one of the most significant springs of the band's inspiration. The achieved atmosphere is the one of a dreamy, intimate, flowing soundtrack for solitary moments spent in front of the Ocean and the Mediterranean sea lost in the hypnotic rhythm of the up and down of tides in a contemplative nostalgic state. A Calliope is also a felt homage to the muse of Heroic Chant who has provided this ensemble with lively inspiration for many years in the past and hopefully to come and to the great Greek poetress Sappho who, like a pale shining moon, managed to achieve the highest beauty in lyric poetry.

A Calliope contains 14 songs taken from all the previous albums of the band + two exclusive ones : Arcana Eco and A Calliope; all the songs have been re-mastered. To enrich this new work, the jewel case comes housed in a a cardboard box with an extra and extensive 32-page full-colour booklet with many exclusive photos, drawings and writings by the band's most passionate listeners from all over the world!

«I made many pilgrimages, the flowing water and the ancient stone were my masters,
History and Time were my mother and father...»

Everything has its origins in the stone and the stone is at the origin of everything.
The stone is a natural element that can be embroidered to create daring architectures or remain massive and impenetrable to the light. ATARAXIA have built the foundations of their manor with that rough material to make them stronger and unaffectable by time. The water, symbol of death, re-birth, eternal rest and regeneration, has become their spiritual guide and has given them the chance to progress, to shape and to transform their art throughout the years. Then, the doors of the realm of dreams have opened to allow them to cross deeper dimensions belonging to an ancestral past and attain contemplation. At the end, walking through a labyrinth leading to a painful and surprising knowledge of themselves, they achieved a new state of enlightenment. What distinguishes a raw stone from a precious one lies in its capacity to be crossed by light and filter it.

Arcana Eco is a journey from the rocky underworld up to an eden of light.

Arcana Eco is a book describing the story of ATARAXIA's albums through the images of voyage that inspired them. Arcana Eco is also the travel diary of Ferruccio Filippi, a music journalist who reached ATARAXIA's place to talk with them about their art.

Arcana Eco is a voyage within a voyage.

BOOK : six chapters developping through Livio Bedeschi's photos, Ferruccio Filippi's reflections and Francesca Nicoli's writings; an exhaustive interview; a full discography and the Arcana Eco Cd lyrics.
CD : 7 exclusive tracks recorded and mixed between April and July 2004 (total length 36 mn), four of them are new, the other three are older songs revisited with a today sensibility.
Packaging : The CD comes inside a DVDpack. The book and the DVDpack come packaged together inside a Slipcase.

ATARAXIA and Madame Bistouri presents a Folksy Horror Show from the early 19th century of Paris : a gloomy theatrical story based on the poetry of Baudelaire. This is the 'cabarets macabres' turned into music - a ghostly cabaret with sounds from Boulevard de Clichy - a theatrical dimension where the dramatic music of Ataraxia is more suitable than ever, in a nocturnal event filled with a ghostlike gothic and grotesque representation of life from the past brought to life with the sound of bandoneons, musettes, trombones, violins, tom-toms and cymbals plus the dramatic and guttural voice of Francesca. With 20 years of history, Ataraxia are more of an institution in the medieval, neoclassical -folk traditions, here following the proud Italian tradition of great spectacular shows.

There was a time in which the olympic and monotheistic religions were not flourishing yet, there was a far time in which a primordial cult, inspired by the White Goddess's power, was practised and felt. In the island of Samothrace, the triple Goddess devoted to the earth, the night and the everflowing cycle of nature was reigning. In order to be initiated into her mysteries, men and women, Greeks and foreigners, free people and slaves had to submit to nine rituals called creation, dominion, love, birth, sacrifice, ablution, memory and crowning. The last ritual had no name, the ninth ritual couldn't be revealed.

Fascinated by the mystery surrounding the island and feeling the urge to portray in music an age and a place where the balance between the feminine and manly powers and their deep link with the nature voice and rhythms were as natural as life itself, we started the adventurous creation of this album. The music draws archaic mantras, ritual movements and lunar elegies, whispers magic spells and eastern litanies, forge tribal rhythms and dark ceremonies inspired by Samothrace's full of energies sites.

Kremasta Nera is a thirty-metre high cascade falling in the sea from a sheer cliff; Axieros is the name of the inscrutable Goddess; Gria Vathra is an enchanted glade where the sound of rivers, sources and the caresses of the wind on the leaves create a magic natural symphony; Kaviria were the priests in charge of the initiation rites, Fengari is the highest mountain in the island, the mount of the moon; Therma is a place rich of powerful curative springs; Klethra is a divinatory spell linked to the soul of the forest; Migratio Animae, the trasmigration of the souls, is a long voyage from a form into another, a painful progression, a spiritual evolution.

This album is inspired by the lights and shadows of an extinguished civilization, a lost world which eclipsed with its secrets. A mix of acoustic sounds, strings, electronic and eastern percussions and a deep evocative singing become the door to enter the purple reign of the Goddess.

Following a very special acoustic performance that brought them together, both artists agreed to release the songs especially arranged for this unique occasion. Featuring exclusive material, this is an essential release for those into Neo-Classical music.

Autunna et sa Rose have used material from their first 3 albums, hereby interpreted on piano and cello, and featuring soprano vocals and poetic recitation. Saverio, the group's mastermind, and his companions bring to life dramatic pieces that push the typically softer tones of Neo-Classical music into a more demanding ground dominated by Contemporary Classical music. Interpretations of compositions by Ataraxia and Tuxedomoon were also part of the concert recorded in Rovigo that evening and included in this release.

Borrowing an ancient Wiepking and Co. piano, Ataraxia rearranged a collection of their finest tracks that would fit an entirely acoustic format, revisiting them in a warmer and more intimate form. This selection covers not only tracks from most of their releases, but also titles from the sold-out EPs "Orlando" and "Des Paroles Blanches", as well as two previously unreleased songs and material never before issued on CD.

Heartfelt vocals and darkened guitars combine to form Riverine , the new ethereal shoegazer masterwork from Autumn's Grey Solace. Erin Welton's mystical voice and Scott Ferrell's innovative guitar experimentation remain consistent with their past two releases. While continuing to move their sonic artwork forward on these beautifully maudlin compositions, Riverine captures Autumn's Grey Solace in their evolution towards a darker sound.

Sous la robe bleue is maybe just a gallery of mirrors where many lives have printed fleetingly their tales, trying to voice a “violent” inner life, extreme emotions that you can live deep inside… All is shown under “the blue dress”, that tiny naïve sky lying as a background in fairytales…

This second work from this acoustic ensemble is in fact the final seal on their artistic maturity, containing compositions of a very considerable level. Embodying a late-romantic nature with some contemporary accents, it's a music-theatre opus with lyrical vocals about the eternity of soul where death is not seen as the end of life...

This brand-new work by A&SR, the third of its adventure through music, appears more daring and variegated than the previous ones, with its architectonics full of philosophical and historical references to the period between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, and even strictly connected to some scientific cosmological topics, following in the wake of the mourned Austrian painter and architect Hundertwasser and of his great intuitions.

Dedicated to A. Artaud, this is a collection of tracks by artists of wave-gothic/industrial genre, now skilfully revised and somehow adjusted by following a sort of de-structurating process, typical of cubist artists, in such an amazing way that it seems these compositions got a brand-new life and a new literary and contemporary nature.
