Bio

EXAWATT folded in 1996, but was to resurrect itself the following year, introducing new members Daniele Palloni on guitar and Francesco Strappaveccia on bass.
EXAWATT released a promo CD in 2001 entitled 'Promo 2001' and the science fiction themed '2K2' in 2002.
EXAWATT played as support for Pain of Salvation, Rhapsody singer Fabio Lione, Labyrinth, Domine, Vision Divine, Secret Sphere, Linea 77.

"Time Frames" Exawatt’s first album: Italian Prog Power Metal band from Umbertide/Perugia
After a year spent in the studio, finally their cd "Time Frames" sees the light. This is a sci-fi concept album about time travel. The Italian band has been active on the italian music scene since 1991.
After a series of demo tapes and promo cds the band was signed by the independant French record label DEADSUN RECORDS (www.deadsunrecords.com) based in Valence, France.
From the beginnig of January 2006 Exawatt’s cd is available in the following countries: France, Germany, Austria, Finland, Benelux, England, Poland ,Greece, Spain, Canada, Australia and Brasil and in the month of February it will be available in Italy too, in specialized stores thanks to the independant distributors from Milan BTF (www.btf.it): they will also provide for the band’s promotion among the who’s who in this musical sector.
In these years the band has aquired a certain experience performing live, opening for important bands in the metal scene such as Vision Divine, Domine, Pain of Salvation, Linea 77, Labyrinth, Secret Sphere, Eldritch and Novembre plus a series of live concerts in the center and the north of Italy. Notably at special events such as playing a cover of the song "Land of Immortals" by Rhapsody (the most famous Italian metal band with the band’s singer Fabio Lione.
In the year 2002 the song "Power of Fate" was included in the cd compilation with the French magazine METALLIAN (it prints more than 30.00 copies of every issue!).
Among other things Exawatt has also achieved 2nd place in a national competion organized by the clothing brand DIESEL," THE DIESEL-U-MUSIC" in 2003. They were also included in the cd related to this event (AUDIOGLOBE is the distributor) with the song "Heretic".
Some notes on the album "Time Frames":
Using as a point of departure the great sci-fi classics on time travel in various epoques (Isaac Asimov, HG Wells and Robert Silverberg) one comes to a confrontation with the world as it is today: a place which has a distant past and a potential catastrophic post nuclear future. Every song is a photograph of an instant in time but also a particular moment in the life of each band member, privately and composition wise - a fragment (frame) of our time.
Musically the cd is oriented towards the musical textures of bands like Dream Theater, Kamelot and Queensryche; and Italian bands such as Labyrinth and Vision Divine.
About the songs Power of Fate and Odissea Veneziana:
In "Power of Fate" Exawatt reinterpret in their own way Verdi’s opera "La Forza del Destino"; on this track there is a special guest, the soprano Daniela Lojarro, who has worked with Giuseppe Sabbatini, Roberto Paternostro, the Berliner Rundfunk-Sinfonie-Orchester, Gisella Pasino, Michael Knapp, Michele Pertusi, Gertrud von Ottenthal and many more.
"Odissea Veneziana", is a "metal" cover of a classic track by Rondò Veneziano; a milestone ‘80’s band, led by the Maestro Giampiero Reverberi. This band was known for fusing classical music elements with electronic sounds, very much the trend in those years.
