The Blut project was born as a free artistic expression by Alessandro Schümperlin, formerly Anthologies band gothic metal.
The project from one man band becomes, first as a studio project, and now a true band able to blend musical styles who formally they are in fight into a kind of kaleidoscope of sounds.
Blut brings original music with no gender limitations and in a very short time reaches the first album, a self-production curated in every detail.
The lineup currently sees Alessandro Schümperlin, the female singer Marika Vanni (from Eternal Silence), the Performer Valentina Carlone and Fabio “Attacco” Tocco (from Rideout) at the bass. For live shows, the band used Vittorio Rondino’s (formerly The True Endless) guitars skills, unfortunately Vittorio left the band a few days ago; now we have some possible substitutions to evaluate; and for the drums currently uses the arms and legs of Alessandro Boraso.
A project address to become a real band able to blend antithetical musical styles and in conflict with each other in a kind of kaleidoscope ostentation of shared differences.
Blut is immediately original music and free of prepackaged limits and labels and in a very short time reach to the first full length album, a self production attentive to every detail.
There are several guests coming from different genres with regard to the first album. The oldest line up seen, after the mentioned mastermind Alessandro Schümperlin, Eternal Silence’s guitarist Davide Rigamonti, the drummer of Nightside Matteo Calautti and the singer Marika Vanni from Eternal Silence. There are also involved several guests from different genres: Silvia Sciacca, Giulio Capone, Niccolò Paracchini, Alessio Sessa and many more.
It’s almost impossible to fully describe the work “Inside my mind part I”, being a journey into lesser-known mental illnesses in the world, of course you can cite some enigmatic episodes of the cd as the tragic “How can I kill her? “, Dreamy atmospheres of” Alice “by experimenting pop like” Froget Paris “and more specifically metal like” Where are they? “. There is even room for a piece in Italian “la via di Cappuccetto (the way of little red riding hood)” at times post punk.
For this second work, “Inside my mind part II”, the situation has changed to give space to move for the personal choices of the lineup, although the initial compositions were all thought by Alessandro Schümperlin.
The structures of “Inside my mind part II” take on the beginnings of the first job but are more mature and defined with greater electronic infections. Obviously, we go with arabian songs for “Jerusalem calls me”, a German song with smells of waltz for “Sigmund freud ist mein Nachbar”, more martial tones for “Ekbom”, or a look at the movies for “Folly of two”. Also in this case to give some titles and some impressions specifically linked to the second part of the concept.
So is it impossible to define Blut? Perhaps the true essence of this project is its absolute indescribability.
“Blut, welcome to our fears …”
