In 2001 Bahntier released the first official demo. On this release some vocal elements were added to the sounds. Bahntier began to perform live and the number of people involved in the Bahntier live act increased. The exhibitions are a mix of sounds and hard visual performance involving video projection, theatrical lighting and art performance.
The Bahntier live act line-up became Stefano Rossello (voice, synth and performer) with Christian Battiferro (percussion and samplers) and Filippo Corradin and Valentina Sanna (projection and lighting efx). In April of 2002 Stefano Rossello met (thanks to the E.N.D.E. label) Simon Balestrazzi, leader of the historical Italian band T.A.C. and ex member of the Kirlian Camera project.
Simon decided to works on the production of the new Bahntier release that was recorded at the NeuroHabitat studios in Cagliari (the same studio where Balestrazzi is producing his new T.A.C. release and the release of TH26). Before the release of this album, Bahntier performed at the Metamatik Festival with Suicide Commando. P.A.L.
and VNV Nation. The great live performance generated a buzz around the Bahntier project. Before the release of the new album, Stefano recorded and produced a limited cdr called "Subspecies", a work made up of unreleased tracks, demo versions of the incoming new album and tracks from the AMOEBA magazine (www.amoeba.tv.it). In 2003 Bahntier released “Randome” on Karnak (an electro/industrial sublabel of E.N.D.E.) consisting of 13 tracks.
The sound of the new release progressed to a mix of powernoise and industrial with aggressive vocals, reminiscent of bands like Skinny Puppy (an obvious influence on Stefano). In 2004 Stefano started to record the album “Revulsive” for the Rustblade label (www.rustblade.com). For the new sessions Stefano brought in Filippo Corradin to contribute sounds as a noise manipulator for the project. After the official release of “Revulsive”, Bahntier embarked on a mini-European tour and performed in cities like London and Berlin.
In Berlin, Stefano and Filippo meet Nadja from the Schlagstrom organization (www.schlagstrom.de) who then became the band's manager. After this, Bahntier performed live with bands such as This Morn Omina, Mono No Aware, Dive, Asche, Synapscape, S.K.E.T., Agonoize, and Anenzephalia. In Bologna in 2005, Stefano meets Justin Bennett (live drummer of Skinny Puppy, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Peter Murphy, and many others) and he soon became involved with the Bahntier project. The new Bahntier line up, with Justin on the drums and additional sound manipulation, played an historic set at the Wave Gothic Treffen festival of Liepseig, Germany in 2006. This show and it's amazing response confirmed the Bahntier project as a major force in the new European industrial wave. In October of 2006 a brand new Bahntier album was released titled "Blindoom" on Rustblade records, and already a wave of press and positive reviews are sweeping across Europe.
Co-produced by Justin with Stefano, it features live drums, percussions, and instrumentations seamlessly blended with harsh tribal programming and electronic sounds to produce a powerful post industrial onslaught. Parallel to the Bahntier project, Stefano works with Eric Van Wonterghem (Insekt, Sonar, Monolith) in the Detune-x project and collaborates with Justin Bennet in the kETvECTOR project. www.bahntier.com Read more on Last.fm.
