Date at Midnight

Né à Rome en 2007, composé de Daniele De Angelis (voix), Danilo Staniscia (batterie), Francesco Barone (guitare) et Pasquale Vico (basse), Date at Midnight sait combiner les éléments les plus sombres du gothique et du pur style deathrock avec un style puissant et envoutant, où les ruines de la ville éternelle répondent aux sentiments chaotiques et obsessif de paysages métropolitains, les sensations introspective et difficiles à avouer, l'espoir trahi, et l'ironie omniprésente ..
Après quelques concerts acclamés dans les salles gothiques et alternatives de Rome, Date at Midnight a commencé les sessions d'enregistrement de leur premier EP éponyme (composé de 6 titres) publié le 1er Mars 2008, sur le label italien In the Night Time Records.
Puis, le groupe a continué à jouer en live, interprétant des chansons, publiées ou non, en Italie et à l'étranger, partageant souvent la scène avec d'importants groupes internationaux. Actuellement, le groupe est en tournée afin de faire connaitre sa musique, faite des atmosphères obscures du gothic rock, l'attitude dramatique du deathrock, et l’instinct du post-punk, avec un mélange personnel de "rock".

2012-02-22 : Date at Midnight chroniqué par Mick Mercer

Rollicking, majestic Goth adventures! A feast of nocturnal, billowing sounds with well oiled, lustful rhythms, scalding guitar decisiveness, and passionate, urgent vocals. An Italian band, singing in English, they’re old and wise enough to have waited a few years for their debut and it shows.

It’s all there in opener ‘No Love’ as Danilo Staniscia’s stomping drums are joined by the stolid menace of Pasquale Vico’s bass, Francesco Barone’s juicy thickened guitar slabs falling into place, then viscous notes ringing out, as Daniele De Angelis’ neurotic vocals burrow out from under it all. That’s good enough but unlike most bands they don’t just limber up and then lumber on, oh no! Having established a rousing, explorative forward momentum like Xmal meets Play Dead, the vocals howl as the guitar prowls and fractures. Then fade…

‘Spirit Dance’ has both a polished, precise patination, but also a gruff, ragged feel developing which accentuates a glorious rush of energy when needed, the rawness brightened by the guitar but streaming along beautifully. ‘Panic Public Show’ starts with some ghostly guitar memories, delicately strummed, but then doubled in intensity right in front of us as the vocals warn of and welcome depravity, setting up a scampering finish. ‘Idillio E Tenebra’ is a meandering, mellow affair, with a false end, the feeling all trapped inside the lugubrious affair.

‘Vicious And Liar’ is scrappier, and scrapping, with enchanting guitar facets, while brusquer drums and hunky bass drives on ‘By The Wall’ as the vocals try to flee. More stylish guitar pulls it back into focus, as gritty wildness and melodramatic woe intermingle. ‘Dead Motions’ is a slow burn emoter, low bass misery, lightly etched guitar gloom, ghastly vocal traces gently evening out into a picturesque haze.

‘Vanità’ is sterner and upright, a bright bass leer, circumspect drums underpinning raging vocals and unflinching linear guitar as it goes along it simply gets bigger and self-assured. ‘Inside 29’ is angrier but uplifting with its simple, repetitive thrust and ‘Solo...’ idles wonderfully with an essential bass presence growing steadily until it segues into ‘Alone’ with timid vocals intruding to share some torment as emboldened guitar bursts out, and it all fills out with a weird lament (“Crying here, alone…drying the scene of crime before I’m gone”), the constricts with dignity.

And there you have it, a fantastic album.
