Winter of Life
In 2003 they released a Demo, “Parentheses”, and, in 2009, a full length, "Mother Madness", recorded and mixed in Rome at the Outer Sound Studios (Novembre, Klimt 1918, Stormlord, Necrodeath) by Giuseppe Orlando, and mastered in Helsinki at the Finnvox Studios (Sentenced, Children of Bodom, Him, Apocalyptica,etc) by Mika Jussila, with artwork made by Seth Siro Anton (Paradise Lost, Moonspell, Soilwork, Oceansize). In Febraury 2009 the band signed a deal with English label Casket Music, a Copro Records division, and a management deal with Alkemist Fanatix Europe. Mother Madness was supported by an European tour and a UK tour and also with the partecipation in the MetalFest Open Air Hungary, supporting bands like Nevermore, Lamb of God, Sonata Arctica, Marduk, Vader, Anathema, Novembre, Destruction and many more.

There are many recalls to melodic death metal and to jazz passages, which make clear that the band doesn't impose itself any bounds.
What's the difference between Winter of Life and the other Italian bands? It's in the band's ability to dare, to know how to be nonconformist, Winter of Life are aware of their own possibilities and don't try to overdo things, leaving their emotions and artistic mood to flow in their songs, careless of what could come out of this. Winter of Life are placed among the big bands of our music scene, the more peculiar one, which sees Novembre and Klimt 1918 as its biggest representatives. From today these bands will have to watch their backs, because someone is trying to take their place. Winter of Life, Italian Opeth? Only time will tell...".
