Seven songs of very awesome death-doom, really appreciated by this type of fans and not only. The album exit (1997) obtains a considerable success during the years in the underground scene in Europe and in the rest of the world, specially among Anathema, My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost fans. After three years, always for Elegy Records, Valerio Capsoni carries out the second SERENADES album: "IONIA". Eight songs which constitute the evolution in a more direct form of dark feeling pulsating in SERENADES music, in a cross between Katatonia and Depeche Mode. This album is very different from the debut, and sounds very cynic and depressive.
An electronical side project, "LEAVEINSILENCE", follows the exit of the album. Six instrumental tracks, in a much experimental mix between electro dub and trance. After some years of silence, and a "THE AGE OF PURITY" reissue (CD Maximum-2003) for the russian market, Valerio Capsoni decides to dedicate “FATHER”(2009) to his father Cesare Capsoni, first SERENADES fan, and to all those who loved SERENADES during the years. After one year Felis Catus (MENDES) enter in SERENADES line up. “THE LIGHT INSIDE” (2010) and "JOY OF DECAY" EP (2010) follow this meeting. The new album “A SECOND REDEMPTION” (2011) it’s the result of the first tout court collaboration between Valerio Capsoni and Felis Catus.
