There are four bands with this name. 1.) an Italian band At the beginning of 90's, while the Grunge wave ruled everywhere, Alessandro Polinori and Federico Rosi gave birth to several musical projects wholy electronics named Puppets and Electro Alba, whose main musical reference was the great Depeche Mode. Years and years of concerts and demo-tapes led them to accumulate more and more experiences in the musical roman landscape and not only, until the bands split for inner reasons. Later on Alessandro Polinori resumed his musical activity in the electronic band Kaiser Soze (among other things winner in the Festival Feedback and protagonist in several DM Parties), while Federico Rosi had gone on with several other projects. When these band split, in the autumn 2001 the project HALO EFFECT born in Ostia Lido Rome, with the line up compound by Alessandro Polinori (synth&progr), Federico Rosi (synth&progr) and John Peverieri (vocals&lyrics), big fan of Depeche Mode and always present at dark and electronic roman clubs. The band's aim is to create an original electronic product even remaining clear the artstic references (first Depeche Mode and generally the german electronic music, synthpop, darkwave and EBM ).

The lyrics are in english in the conviction that that language, together with german, is the best language that fits well with the electronic music, allowing at the same time to have an international product. The atmospheres go from synthpop to darkwave always marked by dark shades, even when the rates go faster. During their live performances HALO EFFECT play many Depeche Mode tracks, as a proper tribute to the band they literally adore. On this subject, the wonderful debut gig on april 17th 2003 is worth to be mentioned, when HALO EFFECT took part in the 1st Great Depeche Mode 013 Electric Zone Party before an audience of 600 persons in the historic roman club Black Out. The collabaration with the first italian site about Depeche Mode (www.depechemodeitalia.com) has allowed to Halo Effect to meet Marco Cattani who was involved, with his guitar, in the Black Out live show and now he is integral part of the band as guitarist and also synth&progr. The first demo "Past Continuous" was out in the August 2003 and it was good welcomed by the audience.

The live activity is gone on with many concerts in roman clubs and with fortunate concerts in Naples and in Igea Marina (Rimini). At the end of June Halo Effect have finished to record their second demo titled "Days Of Silence" that is possible to download from the site www.the-cure.it or directly in the audio section of the official band site www.haloeffect.too.it.

In December 2006: "Schwarz E.P.", a preview of the first album, includes three original tracks, also the instrumental title-track, three remixes and one live song.
