Dark Ages - "Between Us"

What's New: Dark Ages
Dark Ages, an emblematic Veronese band of the Italian progressive scene, has announced the release of its fifth studio album "Between Us". It will be released on May 19th 2022, via the Andromeda Relix label.
This fifth album of the progressive band from Verona is a concept about the fears and the bravery of the man.

Dark Ages was founded in 1986 by Simone Calciolari and in 1991 the band released its first album, “Saturnalia”. In the years after the release the band had an intense stage activity but only in 2008 found a stable line-up with the entry of Angela Busato on keyboards and her brother Carlo Busato on drums.
With a core group, the band immediately began work on the first part of the concept album “Teumman – Part 1” published in 2011. Particularly appreciated by the progressive metal audience, the album was very well received by the band's growing fanbase; so much that the next year Dark Ages were back at work for “Teumman – Part 2” which was subsequently published in 2013.
2014 marked a turning point for the band with the decision to bring “Teumman” on stage as a proper Rock Opera. An ambitious and challenging project which brought to coronation a long held dream for Dark Ages.
2017 marked another significant year for the band as singer Roberto Roverselli and bassist Gaetano Celotti joined the band. Shortly thereafter the band released their fourth album “A Closer Look” with Gianni Della Cioppa’s label Andromeda Relix.
In 2022 the band announced the release of their fifth and latest studio album: “Between Us” once again in partnership with Andromeda Relix. The album was recorded at Mago Studio by Maurixio “Tachy” Fracchetti, often remarked as the 6th member of the Dark Ages due to the deep and lasting friendship that binds him to the band since 2010. The album was distributed by Ma.Ra.Cash Records while all graphics and layouts were made by the keyboardist Angela Busato's Kraken Promotion. The track “Showdown” was recorded with guest-star singer Gianbattista “Jan” Manenti (The Unity).
The concept album “Between Us” is the result of the need to tell the story of the human condition; to show how, when facing extreme situations, a person can face their fears with determination and courage. A “fairy tale” free from any definite characters or narrative constraints that allows every listener to have the chance to build their own story and to find their own personal meaning and subjective moral. As it usually happens in life.
