We invite you to a masquerade in a class of its own. Deeply black emotion and reverie directly from the heart of Italy!
Who has stated that Italy only is the land of sun and Mediterranean flair? The Milanese guys of THE STOMPCRASH set an example against this prejudice with their new album “Swear by the Moon” and have created a masterpiece, that not only is committed to the night and dark sounds, but also to emotion and the blurry borders and bittersweet melancholic world concepts of writers like Poe, Lovecraft or Kafka.
Already with their debut-album “Requiem Rosa” from 2007 the Milanese musicians stayed true to themselves and in the same time reinvent themselves with every new strike. One may think back to the times where THE 69-EYES, SISTERS OF MERCY, THE CURE and THE CRUXSHADOWS were the undisputed occupants of the throne of gothic-music. But THE STOMPCRASH may justly be reckoned as the new candidates for this office, since they they fascinate one over another of their fans with their emotional mixture of Darkwave, Post-Punk and traditional Gothic-Rock.
Whoever doesn’t want to miss the crowning ceremony definitely should not miss the release of “Swear by the Moon” on January 20th.
