Biography

A few years ago three strange young men, a film composer (Nathan David, Guitar), a rock producer (Dean Dichoso, Guitar/Vocals), and a robotic lighting designer (Paul Anderson, Bass), chose a path less-travelled....or dare we say almost too travelled.. by many rock artists chasing a well-fabricated dream.

Having crossed paths with drummer Andy Gentile, and Vocalist Jamie Burgin, they formed Stasera, a rock band of sorts which has always operated on the mission to truly create something with depth, something that was interactive to the mind and to the heart, something that would make their fans fall in love with the art....not forget about it. After all, that is what we do when we are done listening to the current flash-in-the-pan pop/rock artists of today, right?

Who are Stasera's fans? Who knows? One could say fans of 90's grunge, late-era female-rock-boomers, or even a healthy amount of metal heads would certainly identify with Stasera's sincere,elegant aggression. What is certain is that in the last 4 years, anyone who has crossed paths with this band or their music has been successfully swooned by the intense lyrics, fresh songwriting, and solid musicianship of Stasera.

Will you fall in love next?

Stasera's next release, "...le progressioni del cuore" serves up a heavy dose of dark, powerful metal-laden rock tunes. From the naked, emotive "The Bottle" which deals with the consequent aspects of human recreational indulgence, to the dark love story of "Shelter"(featuring NOA from local act VIE)... from the violent outbursts of hard-rocker "Impossible" (featuring MARTINA AXEN of DRAIN STH) to the sexual and abrasive "Residue". No one will be able to ignore the absolutely undeniable greatness of "progressioni".

Lyrics

The Bottle

Written By: Dean Dichoso

VI:
Fill another glass
then its back to sleep
shoot it down fast
when tears start to creep

It doesn't have to be this way...

PC:
Throw the goblet down
Drain my poisons now
I promise you the day
will come

CH I:
Oh I'll wait the pain away
Or let the bottle drown me

VII:
The stupor fills my breath
A euphoric vertigo
my heart will start the lies
as I try to let go

PC:
Throw the goblet down
Drain my poisons now
I promise you the day
will come

CH II:
Oh i'd wait the pain away
Or let the bottle drown me
I've been drowning at the bottom
Won't you take it away from me?

Impossible

Written By: Dean Dichoso

V1:
Time ploughs ahead it seems
You still won’t surrender to me

PC:
I can’t look you in the eyes anymore
Cause I might strike at you
Just don’t try to find forgiveness in this heart

CH:
It’s Impossible to run
Impossible to find
one reason, to stay here

It’s Impossible to give
Impossible to take
one morsel, of the truth from you

V2:
Well where are you going now?
Did I make you hurt yourself somehow?

Break

I can’t look you in the eyes anymore
Cause I might strike at you
Just don’t try to find forgiveness in this heart

Palisades

Written By: Dean Dichoso

V1:
Just like glass walls
Transparent and cold
And a little bit of shining gloss to mock me
Now I see you there, look don’t stare
Tease my every inch, but don’t make me
Be unfair, break this glass,
And make all that you’re worth, my everything.

CH:
Why take away
All we are
So you can chase your invisible star
Throw everything
To the wind
And watch all this could be, dissolve now

V2:
Just one more time right here I’ll wait
In the cold I stand
Look at me so pathetic,
your little dog on a leash I’ll walk
god I’d do, this forever…
and give you total submission

Break:
Don’t walk away
Please just stay
This world we brought to life is everything
The bridges you have burned consume me.
Don’t walk away
Please, just stay

Shelter

Written By: Dean Dichoso

It used to be late at night
we'd meet here all the time
your words caress
like the moonlight bends
and time just turned the tides

but still I'd wait for you...

Soft, Black
The shroud that hid your face
Our light, that shined
was never granted grace
So black, that heart
killed me, again and again
Until, you take
into your shelter my friend...

Your skin the softest shade
pallid and innocent
your hands that soothed
...the only heaven I knew
slowly took everything

but still I'd bleed for you....

Soft, Black
The shroud that hid your face
Our light, that shined
was never granted grace
So black, that heart
killed me, again and again
Until, you take
into your shelter my friend...

The tides have turned
my flesh still burns
You'll lie this time
I'll make you mine.
at least in my head
my thoughts instead
instill the strength
to ignore the cycle..
Who will set me free?
What will set us free?
What more can this ever be..
than my favorite travesty...

....I'm still waiting for you...

Residue

Written By: Dean Dichoso

New. Lost. Found
Who are you?
Fill my void.
Where were you?
Waiting for you, limbo holds me,
You seemed to want what I’m needing

Carnal rhythms occupy you and me
Two march, one drum.
Reaching for ascendancy

A part of you in all of me.
Like two vines intertwined.
Forever locked in this.

This, your arms, engulf me.
you warmth, love. – drowning me.
Rendering me motionless, we seemed to want this.
…gave into this.

Carnal rhythms occupy you and me
Two march, one drum.
Reaching for ascedency
Each step closer,
Apex in proximity.

A part of you in all of me.
Like two vines intertwined.
Forever locked in this.

Tender, healing. Open, drowning.
Rendering me motionless.
Tender, healing. Open, drowning.
You seemed to want, what I’m needing.

A part of you in all of me.
Like two vines intertwined.
Forever locked in this.

Carnal rhythms occupy you and me
Here comes my….ascendancy.
