The power trio line-up, featuring Alessia Marchigiani Vocals, Marco Ricco Guitars, Romina Pantanetti Bass, will release their 11 tracks debut album Redemption next June 2, 2017 via Rockshots Records.
More than a story, Redemption is a metaphor. Yes, something happens, but you dont get to know if it is real, an intimate journey or just a bizzarre version of an everyday tale. We use the story to talk about drugs abuse, death sentence and genderal absence of empathy. Indifference kills.
We have two main nameless characters: the Young Girl and her Son.
She got into prostitution when she was young. She was a pusher, too. She got in love with a guy from the street and gets pregnant. He dies devastated by drug abuse, but before leaving, he asks her to keep their baby anyway.
So she tries to get on the right way and start growing the newborn. It doesnt take a long time for him to fall in the same abyss as his mothers.
Suffering follows. Hate and love between them: she gets beaten, hated. Drug blinds. Grim societies do it too.
When hes a teen, he prepares a perfect crime for money, but She follows him and when police is coming, she gets the fault and let him flee.
She gets death sentenced, since in the end she gets the fault for any of her sons crimes.
Near death, a few minutes before the execution, she thinks back and decides that she would never let her son see the light again if she had the chance to choose again. Love is not enough.
From Silent Sacrifice, where we see her crime from the eyes of a detective and get a glimpse about her intentions and love we go back through her suffering and considerations about the decaying world around her. We touch the lack of empathy in Compassion, the grim fate reserved to those who fight alone in Drop, we see a direct and intimate struggle between them in Pure.
In Awareness we reconnect with the timeline, months after Silent Sacrifice: shes walking to the silver chair and, weak and powerless, decides to accept the sentence, but to repudiate her own choices.
No one deserves a pain like this she says in Redemption.
We believe all people are equal in death. Redemption is a distant mirage, not for everyone.
