European Ghost “Pale and Sick”

Bright tracers in the DARK, WHITE phosphorous bombs, mutilated statues, ruined cities. A silent and faceless army WHICH crosses the muddy trenches of Europe. An exterminating angel RIPPED FROM THE SKY, falls to avenge the new modern horror of loneliness and mute urban battles. Kraut music ECHOES, with, Electro-Darkwave, Post-Punk & DRONE INFLUENCES radiate from Bologna with a MULTI-SHAPED project, OUT OF ANY control: European Ghost.
The 6th of May 2016 the French label “Unknown Pleasures Records” released the first LP "Pale and Sick" by European Ghost. "Pale and Sick" is a concept album: a flight OVER the European remains from the TWO WORLD WARS.
"Pale and Sick" is a path to human frailty, every text is the paradox of himself, is the individual's deviation towards the inner destruction and total. The man more and more 'conflict from outside interference, is isolated in a cathartic dimension, as if it were a real ghost who walks in a space-time parallel existence itself. The texts resemble metaphysical places, a world of emotions, weaknesses, conflicts of all kinds, etched in stone. Every word weighs as much as the human existence.
TEN PAINTED DARK TRACKS, INTEGRATE INTO New Wave tradition AND PUSHING THEIRSELVES limits to a martial and claustrophobic experimentalism.
PREVAILING bass guitar AND all other DENSE ECHOES guitar , WEAVE TOGETHER WITH STRICT DECLAIMS INTO A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH OF ELECTRONIC VIBES.
THE ALBUM, mastered in London by James Aparicio (Depeche Mode, Liars, New Puritans, Spiritualized, Grinderman), was CLAIMED WITH GREAT THRILL by the european and south american press.
Many TRACKS have GOT ONTO the radio BROADCASTS and were placed IN MANY COMPILATION.

Traccianti luminosi nella notte, bombe al fosforo, statue mutilate, città sventrate. Un esercito silenzioso e senza volto attraversa le fangose trincee d’Europa. Strappato dal cielo, cade un angelo sterminatore per vendicare il nuovo orrore moderno di solitudine e di mute battaglie
urbane.
Echi di Kraut music, Drones, Electro-Darkwave, Post-Punk si irradiano da Bologna con un progetto multiforme e fuori da ogni controllo: European Ghost. Il 6 maggio 2016 è stato rilasciato il primo LP “Pale and Sick" per l’etichetta francese Unknown Pleasures Records. “Pale and Sick” è un concept album: un volo radente sulle spoglie dell'Europa dei due conflitti bellici.
"Pale and Sick" è un percorso verso la fragilità umana, ogni testo è il paradosso di se stesso, è la deviazione dell’individuo verso la distruzione interiore e totale.
L’uomo sempre più’ in conflitto dalle interferenze esterne, si isola in una dimensione catartica, come se fosse un vero fantasma che cammina in uno spazio temporale parallelo all’esistenza stessa.
I testi somigliano a luoghi metafisici, un mondo di emozioni, debolezze, contrasti di ogni
genere, impressi nelle pietre . Ogni parola pesa quanto l’esistenza umana.
Le dieci tracce, tinte da sonorità oscure, si inseriscono nel solco della tradizione New Wave forzandone i limiti verso uno sperimentalismo marziale e claustrofobico. Il basso imperante, le chitarre dense di riverbero e le declamazioni severe si intrecciano a sonorità elettroniche dettate da un approccio contemporaneo. Il disco, masterizzato a Londra da James Aparicio (Depeche Mode, Liars, New Puritans, Spiritualized, Grinderman), è stato accolto dalla stampa europea e sudamericana con grande entusiasmo. Molti brani sono entrati nella programmazione di radio e sono stati inseriti in diverse compilation di genere.
