After more than 11 years from its first press, on Springtime 2010 will
be finally available a NEW DIGIPACK EDITION, DIGITALLY MASTERED with
1 BONUS TRACK (Ataraxia's version of Fabrizio De Andrè "Fila
la lana") of one of the most loved album of the band!
The first part of the album was recorded in studio during the 1997 Autumn
equinox, while the second part was recorded live, in a Medieval court,
during the 1998 Spring equinox. "Historiae" are tales narrated
in front of a fireplace during the long winter evenings or along the
narrow lanes of a forgotten burg. In these songs we can feel the presence
of people who lived in Medieval villages and the flavour of our roots.
Listening to the rolls of the drums and the blares of trumpets, we can
trace a path leading from an atavic past straight yo our present.
"Historiae" is a sonorous book carrying the emotional burden
of several lives consumed in that age, in those places. Single stories
that dissolved in the oblivion annihilating the individual to save only
big events. We have listened to the lively narrations of some pilgrims,
the sad stories of forgotten ladies, we have shared other people's lives
while visiting villages whose names were unknown to us. In our turn,
as wandering ministrels, we have transformed all of this into music
and brought you these "Historiae" before taking other ways...
