Death in Venice
Death in Venice
It’s the beginning of a good success in the italian underground circuit. The group plays in different festivals, in many parts of Italy and, in 1985, arrives to play in London. In this year, they sign an important contract with the famous label Contempo Records: the same label of bands such Diaframma, Pankow or Black Rose. With Contempo Records they realize 2 brilliant albums.
The sound of the band in the both realizations becomes more well-groomed and lyrical, the mature voice of Sebastian Russo drives the listeners in obscure lands, where the hopeness is a faded memory. It looks like the beginning of a brilliant (underground) career but, unfortunately, after this considerable production, the group disbands (with another record ready to publish…). Discussions on the new musical direction, distance between the new and old members and other problems ratify the end of the project. Principal Influences (between the others): Siouxsie and The Banshees, Bauhaus, Iggy Pop and Velvet Underground.
