Davide Laugelli – Soundtrack of a nightmare (2017)

Davide Laugelli is an Italian bass player active mainly since 2009, when he began his studies in musicology at the University of Bologna, where he first obtained a degree in the disciplines of art, music and entertainment, and later a master’s degree in music disciplines.

His first solo work, Soundtrack of a Nightmare (2017), is an instrumental concept for two basses (fretted and fretless), synth and drums. The work develops like the hypothetical soundtrack of a nightmare, starting from a rearrangement of the well-known lullaby by Johannes Brahms to get to the sound of the morning alarm, through music ranging from ambient to progressive to industrial. In addition to the album in question, released in his own name and toured in Italy, United Kingdom and Hungary, he is currently bassist in the band Disease Illusion, with whom he has played in Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, United Kingdom, Hungary, Romania and Croatia; as well as in the band Heller Schein, where he plays the fretless bass and has performed in numerous Italian festivals. In the past he played and recorded for the bands 373 ° K, The Burning Dogma, Darisam and for the Greek Italic band Legion Massacre. In addition, he was session man live for the historic Italian death metal band Electrocution during the 2014 reunion dates and for the South Koreans A Doom, the oldest gothic rock band on the Korean scene, as regards the European dates. In 2019, thanks to the excellent feedback received, he decides to bring his solo project live and accompanied on drums by Filippo Maccarelli (Divora) he plays more than twenty concerts in England, Wales, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia and with only one Italian date, still the only one, in Molinella (Bo).

In 2020 he was busy recording the debut album of the avantgarde black metal band XXII Arcana and the new album by Disease Illusion. As for the live shows, the only scheduled appointments were with his solo project from 20 to 22 March in Ireland but the tour was canceled due to the emergency situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE Deliver On The ‘Threshold Of War’

US Thrash Metal project  Prophets Of The Apocalypse  invades your lands once again with their full length album entitled,  Threshold Of War  released worldwide via Sliptrick Records on December 17th 2019. The album depicts the desolate vision of ancient wars, and the darkness of human conflict, while narrating all of the brutality and bloodiness of battle.

Prophets Of The Apocalypse  consistently unleash their ferocious music, blending Blackened Thrash with Old School Death Metal. A vigorous onslaught of drums guides your extreme expedition, intertwining vehement vocals, technical bass madness, and Pete Serro’s blitzkrieg of guitar wizardry!



Track by track
The intro track,  Ashes , sets the album’s tone of utter devastation. Building with a growing of hate,  Ashes  chronicles a vengeful army literally burning everything in it’s path! “Ashes pierce the heavens, fire lights the sky…”  Prophets Of The Apocalypse  scream their battle cry and are ready for a Metal invasion.

Maze Of Doom , the album’s second track, is a twisted saga of a guard leading an evil queen through a seemingly endless labyrinth of castle halls. Pete Serro’s lyrics paint a descriptive picture in the vein of an Edgar Allan Poe short story. The guard’s madness eventually takes over his mind in conjunction with a swirling guitar fury.

Burn The Dead , envisions Barbarians clashing in the battlefield, in rivers of blood. The bodies of the dead, piled high & burning once the siege is over. Old School Thrash & Death Metal chant the chorus,  Burn The Dead !

Shield Maiden , the album’s shortest song, vibes with technical, Old School Death Metal. Shield Maiden  pays tribute to the Valkyrie & other female warriors who blaze their paths of destruction, melded with brutal riffs & melodic guitars.

Trophies Of War  creeps in slowly, evolving into pure Black Metal chaos. Maybe the darkest song on  Threshold Of WarTrophies Of War  deals with inner battles including pain, loneliness, and the passing of time. This song escalates into blistering technical mayhem.

The Threshold Of War journey continues with the song Dead Winter Night. Thrash meets Melodic Death Metal and technical riffing. The lyrics depict an army battling the frozen winter night as they try to stay alive and invade their enemy.

Hierarchy Of Terror portrays a wicked ruler, espionage, and the horrors within the castle walls. Prophets Of The Apocalypse meld their unique style of Black Metal and Thrash accompanying furious drums and psychotic guitars.

Ancient Wars is the only instrumental song on the Threshold Of War album. Prophets The Apocalypse illustrate their Old School Death Metal roots along with their technical prowess.

Clouds thunder, as War Gods laugh… Prophets Of The Apocalypse strike again with their bloody depiction of medieval battle in the song, Never Retreat, Never Surrender. Thrash and Death Metal unite to spin another tale of war and strife.

Crush Thy Enemy is an epic anthem of war from the Threshold Of War album. Prophets Of The Apocalypse call upon their legions of warriors to rise up and destroy their foe metaphorically, if not physically. Pete Serro’s guitar solos are haunting, and the bass breakdown will slay your soul.

Skye Ablaze sketches an epic battle along the shores of a town under invasion. Choking up blood with smoke filled eyes, surrounded with fire and the frenzy of combat. Prophets Of The Apocalypse assault of guitars will overrun your village, while the unyielding drums of war will beat you into defeat.

Threshold Of War | Released on December 17th, 2019 on Sliptrick Records

Yoth Iria – The return of mighty Mutilator to the Metal Scene

The original founding member of two of the most extreme and influential bands of Greek Metal Scene back in the day – Rotting Christ & Varathron – welcomes a new, promising, demonic era!


After his successful comeback with the Brazilians, ‘Mystifier’, on their latest long awaited, full length “Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia” and his participation in the Greek Black Metal project ‘Medieval Demon’, Mutilator sets afire on his own unholy empire the so called Yoth Iria!


Jim’s currently in George Emmanuel’s ‘Pentagram Studio’ recording Yoth Iria’s debut EP that it’s going to be released later this year on Repulsive Echo.


Both band and label haven’t published any material online to keep the mystery sealed and alive. Yoth Iria will be a blending of Heavy tunes, Doom Rites, Black Unoly Scriptures and Majestic Darkness. Can’t wait for that one.
