The band comments: The love for our roots, respect for our culture, pride for our land and its past glory made us write this song. It describes the ancient beauty of a land and culture now completely lost and at the same time it is an attempt to exorcise the most sinister and harmful part of certain European politics, the dark side of humanity, which becomes absolute evil if mixed with this historical approach. Eurocentrism is the seed of evil, it gave birth to destruction, engulfed immense and rich lands, generated colonialism and imperialism which devastated so many cultures; in the name of “Civilization” entire populations have been submitted, the history and spirit of whole communities have been erased and even the differences and diversities have been annihilated. Because of this “black culture” tyrants and dictators have spread hatred and destruction across the world and through expansionism warlords got wealthy in the palaces of power.
We are the children of this cultural disaster, the grandchildren of the great war, the product of this contemporary decline!
“The Dark Side of Old Europa” was produced by Danilo Silvestri and by the band. Renowned artist Roberto Toderico is responsible for the impressive cover artwork that’s now available along with the album’s tracklist.

Formed in 2004, the Rome-based band have evolved into an instantly recognisable figurehead for those pushing doom metal into crushing new directions. Through the years the band have shared the stage with acts such as Electric Wizard, Reverend Bizarre, The Gates of Slumber and Orange Goblin and have been experimenting and contaminating their music with raw heavy metal, psychedelia and other influences.
