Notes From Underground

Notes From Underground

BandMetalEDM

Picture a debut album where DIE KRUPPS,DAS ICH,KMFDM,FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY,WILLIAM FAITH & SEB KOMOR have collaborated and you get a gist of what NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND aim at.Killer songs with lots of ear candy and a production that given its quality was surely conceived to have international appeal.

Biography

To make a long story short… Paolo Greco, former member and producer of Ecodalia’s Time Has Told album wrote and produced the songs for what was to become eventually NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND way before the band itself was formed. Once the music was conceived, the band starts to take shape in 2007 giving NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND the necessary stage presence. Yet every single detail, whether it be creative or technical, is carefully and deliberately carried out still under his supervision.

Unlike so many other productions in this vein of so-called Industrial Rock or Electronic Rock, NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND’s tracks are not built merely upon a mediocre beat, a monotonous guitar riff and some yelled lyrics added to the recipe. NOT AT ALL! These are Songs (yes, with a capital letter) that have a lot of ear-candy: killer verses and real catchy choruses (why not?), simple structures with hooks and gimmicks left and right, and a production that given its quality must have surely been conceived to have international appeal.

Oh man, and what a feast of remixes…!!! And as if the original tracks were not enough to satiate your appetite and quench your thirst, no less than eight remixes have been commissioned for this outstanding debut album. This puts NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND on the same menu with bands like Die Krupps, Das Ich, KMFDM, Front Line Assembly, Faith & The Muse, The Fair Sex, or Icon of Coil. Make no mistake, NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND deliver the goods.

The album title “Crossing the Rubicon” is a metaphor for deliberately passing a point of no return, especially when a business of risky consequences is at stake. This portrays precisely where NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND stand at present. The journey has began — only victory awaits to be fought for, at the other end of the Rubicon river.
