The Chain Goes On - Ancillotti LP

The Chain Goes On

€17.95
Does anyone remember STRANA OFFICINA, the probably most legendary 80s-Metal-band from Italy? Or the 90s-project BUD TRIBE? Those of you who liked those bands will definitely be fascinated by ANCILLOTTI. Founded by the eponymous Daniele ?Bud? Ancillotti, who took on his brother Sandro as bass-player, his son Brian as drummer and Luciano "Ciano" Toscani on guitar. The ten songs of the album are affected by very straight Heavy Metal, which reminds one of the earlier bands of the singer, but some part are arranged with more mid-tempo. This has sometimes a very special charm created by the rough but melodic vocals, but other passages are pounding in best ACCEPT-manner. The catchy choruses are exactly on the point and are made for singing/shouting along, which is brought to perfection by the penetrating double bass-drumming. This Rock?n?Roll firework show is completed by a powerful production.ANCILLOTTI will prove to you: some long approved methods are simply the best!? Featuring vocalist from Strana Officina and Bud Tribe? Lp edition under license from Pure Steel Records.? For fans of old school HM, Saxon and Accept above all.? ?Ancillotti's The Chain Goes On is solid traditional melodic heavy metal, with strong vocals, a tight rhythm section, and ripping guitar leads.? - 4/5 on Dangerdog.com?

Damnati ad Metalla - Folkstone LP

Damnati ad Metalla

€17.95
Folkstone were born at the end of 2004 with a project that combines hard rock to instruments that tradition usually wants as an acoustical habit. Breaking down every pattern, the protagonists of the scene become bag-pipes, harp, bouzouki, flutes and medieval musical instruments, creating the fascinating atmosphere that has always distinguished the band and the feeling with the public. Quickly, thanks to an intense live activity, both in Italy and Europe (with Eluveitie, Arkona, Corvus Corax, Finntroll, Subway to Sally,...) to promote the first two albums "Folkstone" (2008) and "Damnati ad Metalla (2010), they become a top name in the Folk Metal panorama. Following acoustic album "Sgangogatt" (2011) and the fourth album "Il Confine" (2012) confirm and strengthen this status. The magic and power of their shows are captured in their first live Dvd "Restano i Frammenti" (2012), while for the last work "Oltre...l'Abisso" (end of 2014) they are helped by the precious collaboration of two musicians such as Chris Dennis (ex Modena City Ramblers, Nomadi...) to the violin and Fidel Fogaroli (ex Verdena) at piano, witnessing the rise and popolarity of the band. Folk, metal, rock and pure energy mix themselves wth lyrics, rigorously in Italian, introspective and autobiographical, which turn a critical look at today's society.? Available for the first time on Lp format, with elegant gatefold cover.? "Anime Dannate" videoclip with over 500.000+ views, an incredible result for an indie-band! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soszlsYOM3w? Folkstone doesn't play only folk metal, they represent fully the spirit of this music, becoming deservly one of the best bands of the genre, after 4 acclaimed albums and many live-tours in all Europe.? "?Damnati ad metalla? has all the same charms as its predecessor, and fewer of the failings, and is both a sign that the band are moving in the right direction and a pleasurable experience in its own right" - Metal Archives? "Folkstone machen musikalisch schon vieles richtig. Besonders die Melodien, die durch die Verwendung von Instrumenten wie Sackpfeifen, Harfe, Fl�ten und dem Bombard (traditionelles bretonisches Blasinstrument) auch eine eigene Note enthalten, verstehen zu begeistern. Es gelingt den Italienern durchaus, so etwas wie ein eigenes Markenzeichen zu entwickeln, das etwas mittelalterlich angehaucht ist." - Stormbringer

In 1983 they recorded their first demo tape, 5 tracks as an exciting mix between Judas Priest and Loudness sound. This demo was pretty appreciated in the underground scene and the Airspeed name circulated quickly on Italian and also European fanzines.
