"Hello boys & girls!
Just a quick note to let you in on whats going on! As you all know, it all went slightly downhill rapidly here for the upcoming release. Well, it has kind of gone rapidly downwards for a long time, and very downwards in the end. Anyways, due to legal reaons, The Clan Destined ARE allowed to legally use the tracks/recording for his release anyways. At the same time, we...the new band which will rise from the crypt of this, are also allowed to do the same. We will all see how this turns out in the end, but I am sure Martin will continue to release this MCD.
Anyways, despite all this craziness, me and lee cassidy (first), will start recording demos within very short time & will announce a full new lineup shortly after that is done. We have 9 new songs which are more or less ready to go & i can assure you all this time we will NOT wait forever and drag it all out. We will work fast & focused for this. I think we all deserve that & the best force of defense is always dicipline & focus.
No name yet for the new band, but we are VERY open for suggestions, so please keep coming with them!
In the meantime, and during all this shit...I have been recording a demo which is available at:
This is the whole demo in its entirety which should be the only way to use a demo these days. To spread the name first of all through music. So, even though this is a small project i do, its at least something in the wait for the big happening.
I am extremely confident now & are very fukkin ready for battling onwards & upwards. In between all work as we prepare the new beginning, I will stay on here an talk as much bollocks as I can haha.
Cheers to all old & new members....now..back to the guitar & a bottle of heineken (teutonic beer uber alles).
Oh! Must add that the demo you hear on the link has nothing to do with the upcoming band. Its just me being abit nostalgic and pissed off. "

"There are many fabulous places, imagined, visited or skimmed over in dreams,
there are gardens and kingdoms, lost in the meanders of time,
carried away, carried away by our notes…"
Book + CD available in winter 2005 by Ark Records - Italy
Everything has its origins in the stone and the stone is at the origin of everything.
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 and
re-birth, 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 enter a contemplative
dimension. 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

Dear boys and girls who seem to have a very decent taste in music!
D:O:A Productions proudly announces the complete billing of the D:O:A 2005! 19 bands, 20 shows, played at the two festival days should probably be enough to keep you entertained. The same procedure as every year: A well-mixed variety of Death, Power, Thrash, Black and Folk Metal, as well Rock'n'Roll won’t let anyone have an excuse to not throw their hair into the air, while there still will be some “nobodies” on stage in order to change that status.
Of course this was not due to financial problems. On the contrary! We are trying to present next to well-known artists some new, young and juvenescent combos to let them surprise and win you over with musical qualities and delight in playing. In case any of you can recall Crikey, The Rules or Equilibrium… you know what I am talking about….
