ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DISARMONIA MUNDI: from ashes to darkness, a descent into isolation

Talking about Disarmonia Mundi is like talking about an ever morphing foetus that despite being not born yet keeps changing throughout the time without achieving a complete form of any sort, eventually leaving the observer quite confused about the identity and the purpose of its strange and ever changing nature…


Let’s start from the easiest part: there have been style changes, there have been line-up changes, but the only thing that remained (and probably always will be) unchanged since the beginning of this band is the presence of Ettore Rigotti as a player, composer, sound-engineer and producer. We could easily say that Disarmonia Mundi is simply his own vision of extreme-melodic music and end the biography right here, but it would maybe be a little disappointing for you all, so we’ll have to spend some more words about the past of this band and find a better way to introduce you to its bizarre world.


It all started around the year 2000 when Ettore with a bunch of friends/musicians composed and recorded into his own home-studio the first self-produced opus entitled “Nebularium”: a brilliant piece of progressive and atmospheric extreme music. Despite lacking a massive distribution and live activity (due to line-up problems) the record received an amazing feedback from both media and metal fans and allowed the band to sign a contract for the worldwide distribution of the next two albums.


While working on the new album the band almost lost all of its components (except Mirco, the bass player and of course Ettore) and joined forces with Claudio to complete the lyrics and vocal structures of the new songs and successfully got in contact with Speed from Soilwork to have him as a guest on the new record as well.


The year 2004 finally saw the release of the long anticipated second studio album entitled “Fragments of D-Generation”: no more progressive atmospheres, but a faster and more energetic musical vibe with a huge injection of melody and a more twisted and aggressive vocal/lyrical approach. Being a worldwide success the record helped the band to enlarge their fan base a lot despite the lack of live activity and granted them their own place in the crowded melodic extreme metal scene.


The year after Mirco eventually left the band to dedicate all his efforts to his movie director career, but new songs were already coming out Ettore’s hat and the third record (“Mind Tricks” - 2006) showed that the renewed creative identity built by Ettore and Claudio was stronger than ever and far from being exhausted: a darker and heavier sound featuring multiple vocal layers by both Claudio and Ettore (with Speed collaborating again as a guest on some parts of the new songs) made this record their best release so far.


And finally year 2009: Ettore and Claudio are once again working together to properly complete the songs that will be featured on the fourth Disarmonia Mundi record , tentatively scheduled for an autumn/winter release.


…to be continued damn soon…

If you think the phrases "melodic" and "death metal" don't belong anywhere near each other, that's understandable. It's becoming increasingly rare that a group can pull off both without compromising their sound, so when we hear a band that does, it's fair to say they deserve some recognition. While death metal purists may balk a bit at the use of keyboards and the hints of melodies here, the presence is still felt throughout these ten tracks, and there should be no mystery as to where this band has its roots planted. Stomp-on-your-skull aggressive and painstakingly crafted, these songs are both brutal and meticulous, making the intrinsic rage that much more focused. Tracks like "Morgue of Centuries" and "Swallow the Flames" will quell your need for speed, while "Red Clouds" and "A Mirror Behind" seem relatively pensive in comparison. Don't worry, they still come out swingin'. This whole disc does, and it doesn't stop until the job is done.
