Skywise


"The band was formed at the end of 1998 in Rome Italy. After one 4-track demo and a series of live gigs, got a contract in 2001 with German label Daredevil; the album was called Morning Star. Toured around a bit and opened gigs for bands such as Entombed and Ufomammut. In 2004 they recorded and produced their second album "Give the Devil His Brew", which due to change in the lineup and personal problems of the band members was not released until 2008. In the meantime, the band takes part in a few compilations (amongst others: "Desert sound the Spaghetti Sessions Vol. 1" or "Electric Magic Vol. 3"), played at the second edition of SHOD Fest. It is possible to download both their records from www.skywise.it. In the meanwhile, the band gets together as a trio and Ennio, former guitar player replaces the drummer. Current lineup Francesco BV, Ennio D, Emiliano G. This leads to a change of style from the more stoner doom influenced numbers of the past to a more mature and obscure atmosphere (see Buried at Sea, Cult of Luna, Earth, Khanate...). "Cold Cold Earth" their third work has just been released. The band has spent the last few months promoting the record and playing live inGermany and Italy. " ~MySpace
