ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography plus reviews of Spiritual Bats works in various languages:

The Spiritual Bats" project was conceived in 1992 by Dario Passamonti (Alchemisti Painters) and Matteo Bracaglia. Being a painter, Dario composed the music out of the need of transmuting Image into Sound. Matteo was the singer and author of the lyrics. The vinyl EP "Spiritual Bats" was recorded in 1993. The project was destined to have a new line up for each recording, but always featured artwork by the Alchemisti Painters (Biennial of Venice, 1986 Art and Alchemy section), as well as their installations and projections during live performances. The performances were multi-medial excursions, or live rituals, rare apparitions, balancing between Image and Sound.


In November 1994, after the shows at the Crypta (Rome) and the Condor (Modena) the Spiritual Bats had the pleasure and the honour of opening for Rozz Williams (Christian Death) and his Daucus Karota, at the Black Out (Rome). Dario's Passage into the Realm of Shadows did not weaken the nucleus of the project: "Confession" was recorded live at the Pan Pot Studio in Rome, in May 1995, immediately after the show at the Velvet.


Alchemisti Music was born and "Sacrament" was released in 1999, after the live show at the CB's Gallery (Alchemy), New York, August 1998, with the projection of the "Funeral Cries" Video. In addition to the Alchemisti Art, "Sacrament" proudly features the Graphics Art by Eric Hammer, (Musician and Painter of the band Mors Syphilitica), today also known as Doc Hammer (Venture Brothers).

In 2004 the original founders of the project decided to part.

Spiritual Bats is a proud member of Mike Ventarola's Hidden Sanctuary


Reviews


Sacrament (Alchemisti Music)
By: Sonya Brown
Dubbed "Italian Goth Rock", my first introduction to Spiritual Bats was their song, Crucifixion, which is included on the Cleopatra compilation "The Unquiet Grave". Crucifixion is a darkly fun tune that whet my appetite for their latest release, a 5 song EP titled "Sacrament".

Sacrament is guitar-laden with spooky wavering synth that makes you feel as if Halloween came early this year. What fun it is to disregard the blazing summer sun and visualize the mists of October wafting through your mind, carried on the strings of Dario's guitar and Matteo's vocals.

The cd artwork for Sacrament (by The Alchemisti Painters) is also quite beautiful, sending me longing for those glorious days of vinyl when you could get the full-scale version of such illustrative delights.

I not only recommend Spiritual Bats, Sacrament; but please do yourself a favor and also listen to the Unquiet Grave compilation by Cleopatra. Cleopatra seems to have sifted through the ashes to dig up some very worthy bands, and Spiritual Bats is one of those unearthed gems.

As the band name and album title could imply, "Sacrament" from Spiritual Bats is a gothic rock release. With foundations rooted in beat rather than atmosphere, however, this leans more heavily to the rock genre. Based out of Italy (which explains the deviance from general formulaic gothic tunes), Spiritual Bats are a 5 piece group. Drum beats and the crunchy guitar suggest an approach akin to metal, but the light keyboard textures and drone bass guitar compliment the gothic vocals to provide a counter-point to the frenzy. Textures and instrument treatments reinforce the notion that the band is rooted in the metal arena.
Why have I beaten that point into the ground, oh you, the glorious reader may ask? Here's why: that makes this INTERESTING. Interesting is good. There is a distinct flavor to this 5 song EP. The vocals almost hamper the music at times, a bit dull and grainy, but this seems to be intended in a gothic sense. A nice evolution away from the Cleopatra-esque goth rock.

-Spiritual Bats - Sacrament
in Reviews, wave/gothic
Author: HD.
From Italy come the Spiritual Bats, a formation specialized in old-school-gothic rock. On this mini-cd called Sacrament you find 5 tracks, inspired by the classic gothic heritage. This means no big musical surprises are to be found here, but everything is well-performed. The band is active since 19992 and got good critics with their previous album Confessions. If you like traditional gothic music, like Christian Death, then you wont be disappointed by these Bats. The typical goth guitars, dramatic singing, the creation of tension, a spooky atmosphere The drums and bass accompany it very well. My favourite track is `Lost Souls´ (I dont know if it was inspired by the Poppy Brite novel). This band knows its classics and stays faithful to it. The cover artwork by the Alchemisti Painters is of a high level.

Spiritual Bats
Sacrament
~reviewed by Admortem

Individuals that know what it is to be artists, emissaries of beauty and reality, Spiritual Bats take on their world with musical power. The music of Spiritual Bats is filled with emotion and insight. Combining this with their shadowy, dramatic sound makes for a moving listening experience.

The Spiritual Bats are members of Alchemisti Painters, an ensemble of various artists that seem to share a bond of creativity. Founded by Lamberto Bracaglia, who also created the cover art for the Sacrament CD along with Flavia Passamonti, a painter and writer as well as fellow member of Alchemisti Painters, the group also consists of Matteo Bracaglia, a visual and vocal artist, co-founder of Spiritual Bats, and singer and songwriter, as well as of Dario Passamonti, co-founder and guitarist for Spiritual Bats.

The following passage is taken from a letter from Rosetta, regarding the song "Reflection of You" which was dedicated to Justine Brushwood:

"Reflection Of You" came to Dario on the day of Justine's funeral, which he attended. Nobody knows why, but not ONE friend had gone to give her a last farewell.

All we know is that 'she walked her path through cobble hills in solitude, and in solitude she was buried in a Silver Lake'. Thus she appeared and disappeared from the face of this earth.

Though Dario did not know her, by a strange coincidence, he found himself touching the coarse skin of her lifeless hand, feeling love, compassion, sorrow, and fear of the evil, without exclusion of ignorance, that surrounds us and that may lead us to mental derangement, lack of balance, separation, loss, loneliness, isolation, emptiness and apathy.

We don't see this as some otherworldly phenomenon, though, but as a simple, human reaction. However, a Spiritual Bats song is normally born gradually, over a period of time; the whole guitar part, came to Dario, for the first time and all at once, when he got home after the burial. Matteo then wrote the lyrics and baptized it "Reflection Of You".

I wished to include this excerpt in an attempt to demonstrate the depth of emotion and insight that this band's music possesses. If moved to do so, I suggest listening to their music and even learning from it. All of humanity is not lost.

This is the third release for the Spiritual Bats, the first two being 1992's self titled outing, and 1996's "Confession". It's a few years old, but hey, I just got it, so you're gonna hear about it. The band has undergone many line up changes over the last ten years, leaving vocalist Matteo, and guitarist Dario as the only two remaining original members. Rounding out the band this time out, are three goth babes, that any boy in black would be happy to meet, we have; Rosetta on drums, Vanessa on keys, and Loren on bass. The five songs found on this short CD harkens back to the late 80s / early 90s goth sound. At many times I am reminded of bands like Two Witches, and various bands found on those numerous compilations put out by Cleopatra records. Two tracks that really stand out are "Lost Souls" and "Ritual", both are full of passion, and haunting, sorrow-filled melodies. One of the best things I liked about this disc is that the gothiness is really emphasised. Most Goth-Metal bands are too metal, and most Goth-Rock acts, are more pop sounding than goth. Sacrament, has a real dark, foreboding atmosphere, that is so thick it's almost like a physical presence. If ya like your goth old-school, this is for you. Let's hope we see a full length come out in the near future. For more info go to their web page.
RATING = 8 Goth-Rock (Released 1999)

SPIRITUAL BATS - Sacrament (Alchemisti)

Cette formation peu connue à ce jour mais tout-à-fait méritante nous vient en droite ligne de lItalie, berceau du Néo-Romantisme. Nos charmantes chauve-souris nous reviennent du fond des ténèbres avec un 3ème opus nommé « Sacrament », élaboré entre New-York et Rome et comptant au total 5 titres hallucinants. Latmosphère qui se dégage de cette galette nous invite à rejoindre les âmes perdues dans les limbes, un vent de douce désolation souffle dans les arbres décharnés, il sagit probablement de la sentence du dernier jour sur terre qui s'annonce. La batterie (du membre de The Sanctuary) à la fois impérieuse et obsessionnelle accompagnée par une guitare lourde et lancinante annoncent la couleur dès les premières notes du premier titre. En outre, la voix de Matteo, sensuellement plaintive plonge le fan dans la spirale dun long désespoir. Il ny a pas déchappatoire, donc, nen cherchez pas ! Une particularité de cet album réside sans aucun doute dans le fait, quil est inclassable, des sons électroniques étranges en provenance du keyboard semblent issus dun film dépouvante, le style ou plutôt les styles se fondent dans un melting-pot incroyable, du gothic metal au romantic metal, en passant par la new-wave et la dark-wave virvoltant au sons de la sarabande. Les chansons senchaînent avec une redoutable facilité, on écoute la première et sans sen rendre compte la dernière séteint dans la nuit, le tout est court mais nen demeure pas moins agréable à loreille avertie...


Le royaume des ombres nous ouvre ses portes, saisissons notre chance, apprécions ce petit bijou et oublions le reste !

[]"Crucifixion" by Spiritual Bats is an interesting track. It's kind of similar to the Advent Sleep track on disc one, but the singer has some kind of an accent. It could be spanish or european, I'm not sure, but it's a nice touch to a great song.[]

Spiritual Bats: Sacrament (Alchemisti Music - 1999) (7.6)

Not ambient, no... but an 18-minute EP of energetically brooding Italian Gothic rock. Dario Passamonti and Matteo Bracaglia lead their compatriot gloom rockers (Rosetta, Vanessa H. and Loren) through five tracks like Sacrament, Lost Souls and Ritual. Appropriately somber vocals, churning guitar, keening keyboards are backed by femme-powered drum and bass. Though a new release, these dark gems glimmer with a distinctly old-school sound and a raw energy which can only come from love of the genre. Definitely worth checking out though, if you're in that mood...

Spiritual Bats
"Sacrament"
Alchemisti Music
MCD

¡Esto es Batcave! Spiritual Bats nos presentan un MCD con cinco canciones llenas de guitarras chirriantes, teclados de película de terror de los 50, ritmos de batería tribales y complejos y una voz calmada e intensa. Y lo hacen francamente bien. También encontramos las pintas "adecuadas" para este tipo de música e incluso un cierto aire artístico con la inclusión de pinturas realizadas por el colectivo Alchemisti Painters, pinturas e ilustraciones de muy buen gusto, siniestras pero alejadas de los tópicos de las calaveras y los cementerios.

A pesar de que el Batcave vivió su pequeño momento de esplendor a finales de los setenta, cuando yo aún no sabía ni leer, y actualmente esté prácticamente extinguido, cabe destacar que estas canciones, puramente siniestras, con títulos como "Lost souls" y "Ritual" son realmente buenas en su estilo, y el que un estilo viva o muera no lo marca el tiempo ni las moderneces, sino el que haya grupo que hagan buenas canciones.

Si te gustan Bauhaus, Corpus Delicti, o Skeletal Family estos italianos te van a encantar. No lo dudes.

Dans la petite famille du deathrock italien, un nom éphémère mais non dénué d'intérêt, j'ai nommé Spiritual Bats. Adeptes d'un deathrock sombre influencé par Christian death, le groupe nous livre ici un mini de qualité tout en batteries roulantes, basses lourdes et guitares torturées, mais également, et je tiens à le souligner, reposant également sur un intéréssant travail des claviers dont les lignes simples mais spectrales jouent un rôle indéniable dans les atmosphères hantées et lugubres des morceaux. Le chant, neutre, presque froid, ajoute selon moi une petite touche personnelle en évitant le plagiat des groupes de référence. Mélodiquement, l'ensemble tient parfaitement la route et il n'est dès lors pas surprenant d'apprendre que Loren est actuellement guitariste de Chants of Maldoror et que Vanessa H joue du clavier au sein de Human disease...quand je vous parlais de petite famille...

Auch in Italien soll es Fledermäuse geben, ich habs schon immer geahnt, jetzt ist es offenbar:
SPIRITUAL BATS präsentieren ihr neues Werk "Sacrament".

Die Band um Matteo (Vocals), Vanessa (Keyboards), Dario (Guitars), Loren (Bass) und Rosetta (Drums) sind in der Italo Gothic Scene keine Unbekannten. Nach ihrer Vinyl-EP "Spiritual Bats", dem CD-Debut "Confession", unzähligen Auftritten, Radio Shows und Compilation-Beiträgen (auch in Frankreich, Portugal und USA) wird es an der Zeit, mit ihrem im August `99 erschienenen Album "Sacrament" auch endlich hierzulande Gehör zu finden.

Das Artwork von "Sacrament" gibt sich schwarz, mystisch, geheimnisvoll schön. Die Musik von SPIRITUAL BATS zu umschreiben bedarf es ein paar Worte mehr:

Das Titelstück "Sacrament" kommt nach bedrohlichem Intro mit schnellen Beats und agressiven Rockriffs zur Sache. Das ist Gothic-Rock, so soll es sein! "Reflection of You" ist ein langsam dahingleitender Flug durch die unendliche Nacht. Danach werden die "Lost Souls" beschworen. "Ritual" geht noch tiefer unter die Haut und "Dazzling Lights" beschießt hymnenhaft ein Album, daß mir vorkommt, als wäre die Zeit irgendwo zwischen den 80ern und den 90ern stehengeblieben. So wie damals, als ich zum ersten Mal BAUHAUS oder SISTERS OF MERCY gehört habe. Aufnahmetechnisch ist es ja nicht die Qualität, die wir heutzutage erwarten, andereseits so aber eine gewisse Rauheit und Kantigkeit rüberkommt, die den Songs eine ganz besondere Atmosphäre verleiht. Und es ist, als wäre die Welt untergegangen, irgendwann und die verlorenen Seelen feiern seither eine Party mit SPIRITUAL BATS.

In meinen Ohren ein absoluter Geheimtip!

De la mano del sello Alchemisti Music nos llega el último trabajo de la banda italiana SPIRITUAL BATS, denominado "Sacrament".
Antes de entrar en materia y comentar este CD, me gustaría hacer un poco de historia e informar a todos aquellos que no hallan oído hablar nunca de este grupo de sus orígenes y del interesante mundo paralelo en el que se desenvuelven.
El alma de S.B. está formada por Matteo Bracaglia y Dario Passamonti,. Ellos concebieron este proyecto en 1992 con la necesidad de transcribir sus imágenes en sonido, a fin de complementar una búsqueda artística llena de inquietudes y sensaciones. A Matteo se le debe el nombre del grupo , ya que es un amante de las películas de terror. Tanto en Matteo como en Dario podríamos decir que su mas fuerte influencia era y es la imagen de los alquimistas. Es necesario incluso evocar influencias tales como el expresionismo alemán , los juegos de Lumièr , los contrastes entre el negro y el blanco y la literatura gótico-esotérica. De todas formas estas influencias incluyen el hecho de estar informados siempre sobre el arte en su contexto histórico , sobre los movimientos , las escuelas y las filosofías. De esta forma, después de 1975,la exploración había ya comenzado con los Pintores Alquimistas (Alchemisti Painters) y su implicación en la escena artística internacional.
Dario y Matteo descienden de este legendario grupo de artistas : Lamberto Bracaglia- se le debe la existencia de los Pintores Alquimistas . Es un maestro del arte figurativo y el simbolismo.
Flavia Passamonti- posee el poder de guiarte a través de un viaje dimensional. Es pintora y escritora .
Dario Passamonti-(guitarra del grupo)- después del 24 /2/94 penetró en lo que se llama la dimensión de las sombras . Simbolismo, torbellinos geométricos, visión de espacios infinitos...
Luigi Pacioni-(1952-1978)- genio que concentró sus visiones antropomórficas de la naturaleza, de la vida y de la muerte, tan ricas en símbolos como en textos. Predijo su propia muerte.
Matteo Bracaglia-(vocalista del grupo)- artista vocal y visual. Estudiante de la academia de bellas artes de Roma e historiador de la música dark-goth. Escribe artículos en revistas nacionales y fanzines locales. Entre su colección de discos tiene grupos como: Bauhaus, Mephisto Waltz, Requiem in White, Christian Death, Joy Division ., etc, Volvamos a la trayectoria de S.B., en 1993 sacan un primer trabajo con pocos medios , donde incluyen percuisones tribales e industriales. La portada es una pieza artística de Lamberto Bracaglia. Las performances de estos chicos se revelan como excursiones multimedias, en equilibrio entre el sonido y la imagen. En 1994 , concretamente en el mes de noviembre , después de una serie de conciertos en La Crypta Roma, y El Condor Módena, tienen el placer y el honor de telonear al legendario Rozz Williams en el Black Out en Roma. Ya en 1995 cuentan con nuevos músicos, hacen distintos conciertos y particularmente cada uno de ellos se desarrolla en una esfera de actividades con un fin: la búsqueda ...¿de qué?...del equilibrio, de la verdad...
Los Pintores Alquimistas y la banda están implicados en numerosos proyectos que comprenden exhibiciones artísticas, la publicación del libro The obscure vision of sound , escrito por Flavia . Un viaje dimensional a visiones lunares de sonido e imágenes ,dedicado a Spiritual Bats.
También editan 2 vídeos: Funeral Cries 7 minutos ,dirigido por los alquimistas.Live at CB´S Gallery 30minutos, debut de la nueva formación en New York City el 3/8/98 , con una instalación artística de diapositivas y video proyecciones a cargo de los Pintores Alquimistas.
Y no olvidemos el lanzamiento en 1996 del L.P. Confession disponible en vinilo y en CD. nbsp;En definitiva quieren vivir plenamente todos los buenos momentos de la vida ,trabajar y componer nuevas canciones. Así nos llega después de 3 años , y tras el inesperado éxito del anterior CD., este nuevo trabajo . Los Murciélagos Espirituales no sólo han sobrevivido ,sino que como el ave Fénix , han resurgido de sus cenizas y han comenzado una nueva etapa.
En esta ocasión Matteo y Dario se encuentran acompañados de Rosetta (percusión ), Vanesa H. (teclados) y Loren (bajo).En esta ocasión está presente todavía la eterna dicotomía entre la pena y la esperanza, la tragedia y la ironía.
La voz de Matteo ,sensual , dramática y potente se contrapone con la atmósfera que crean los teclados (los cuales nos transportan a una Transilvania de cine de terror), colgantes, lúgubres ,casi obsesivos.
Resaltaría la buena ejecución de la percusión que imprime fuerza y carácter a estas nuevas composiciones, los enigmáticos ritmos del bajo y las pinceladas de color o en blanco y negro que aporta Dario con su guitarra y que en conjunto inducen al movimiento , a esas experiencias visionarias....
Concluyendo, se puede decir que siguen practicando un rock-gótico a la vieja usanza pero con madurez y refinamiento. En los cinco temas de este disco se sigue una línea agresiva aunque romántica, oscura aunque iluminada por una vena mística. Quizás pocas innovaciones dentro de un estilo ya manido pero perfilando un estilo propio y sobre todo dejando atrás el lastre de bandas como Christian Death cuya influencia era notable en su anterior trabajo. En lo referente a la presentación , decir que en el artwork se ha utilizado la obra del desaparecido Luigi Pacioni denominada Visione y la de Lamberto Bracaglia Nocturne, como ya sabréis miembros de los Pintores Alquimistas. Además ha colaborado con su arte gráfico el artista E. A. Hammer.

Formed from the core of the Alchemisti Painters Group, this is the second release from this Italian band.

They received a lot of critical acclaim for their first album Confession, which high- lighted in a concert in New Your.

Imbued with all things connected with Gothic Imagery and the dark arts, their brand of death rock owes much to the likes of Christian Death, Bauhaus and Sisters of Mercy. Not always necessarily in musical terms, but in the presentation, there is a strong sense of style.

Musically, we have tribally gothic rhythms, a la Sex Gang Children, drenched in epic distorted guitars and reverby keyboards.

For current context, think of bands like Mors Syphilitica, Love Like Blood and Judith.

SPIRITUAL BATS
Sacrament EP
Alchemisti Music
In the beginning, this 5-song CD seemed nothing very serious in conventional goth-rock scene. Not very catchy and not darker than usual gothic rock, but it didn't touch any deeper senses. To tell the truth, this album needs more listens to discover its value. First of all, it comes in a strange sense of ritualism. It isn't very clearly revealed, maybe it comes more from a feeling, not from the straight musical form. Second, keyboard passages in the background form a sense of horror and mystique. These both musical/non-musical elements appear as strange input to their music and create an intrigue of some kind. If we speak about the main style of Spiritual Bats, it is cold goth rock, not very suitable to dancefloors; and seemingly negligent character of "Lost Souls" remind of not so punkish Bauhaus. These five songs are still not enough to make a clear view of what this group is really about, but I think that we will hear from them in the future; now they represent the mystic side of gothic rock.

Spiritual Bats: Sacrament (MCD - Alchemisti Music). Gli Spiritual Bats esprimono da anni un'adesione totale e appassionata al death-rock di ispirazione americana. Con Rozz Williams come nume tutelare, il gruppo è caratterizzato da una matrice espressiva personale e riconoscibile, che si manifesta in brani oscuri composti da un'ossessiva linea di tastiera, una potente ritmica, lancinanti riff di chiatarra e la voce molto "eighties" di Matteo. Fra i cinque brani di questo mini CD va citata la title-track e "Reflection of you". Un'opera senz'altro di "genere" che potrà appassionare i cultori dei primi Christian Death. Splendide ancora una volta, le illustrazioni di gusto simbolista che accompagnano il CD. (Christian Dex)

Through The Shadows
[] a new music artist (The Spiritual Bat) who recently mailed to me a fabulous guitar-oriented CD with NO vocals... and I do mean that this has got to be one of the all time best non-vocals music recordings that I've received (since "Well of Souls" by VidnaObmana) to consider for any purpose whatsoever...
Now... I know that SOME people out there will recognise the names of these musicians and think... "Hey, Jett, you got it wrong; the name of the band is The Spiritual Bats."
Suffice it to say that the name has changed and that this EVER excellent Italian music project moves ever forward as a duo.
For me, it's like Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream meets Tolkien's Middle-Earth of Lord of the Rings as interpreted and conveyed via flute, guitar and percussive enchantments that whisk my optimistic mind and spirit into a celebration of hope for futuristic fantasies. [...]"
