ASHRAM Human And Divine CD
ASHRAM is a legendary and extremely gifted Italian band, working in the Dark Wave / Neoclassical genre with ambient / atmospheric influences. The band was formed in 1997 when Sergio Panarella (vocals) and Luigi Rubino (piano) started collecting ideas. During the process of writing their first songs the duo invited Alfredo (edo) Nortarloberti to be part of the project. With this line-up the band recorded eleven songs and included seven selected ones on the demo "For My Sun", self-released in 1998, followed by an appearance on Energeia's compilation “Intimations of Immortality Vol. 5” with the song "Spirit of the Rising Moon". 2001 ASHRAM signed with the French label Prikosnovenie for the release of self-titled debut album „Ashram“, accompanied by live shows in Italy and Europe. 2006 ASHRAM released „Shining Silver Skies“ (on the Portuguese label Equilibrium), which was enthusiastically reviewed in magazines and the band started to perform countless international shows and produced music for advertising soundtracks too. In 2010 Dying Art Productions released the DVD “Gathered under Shining Silver Skies”, which is an amazing document of the bands first and very successful live tour in China 2009.
