-Against the italian “esterofilia” & the Decay of the Ancient Italic Glory & Spirit
-Against the homogenisation of music & art
-For the creation of the cultural & spiritual music genre: METALLVM ITALICVM
-For the Return of the Italic “IMPERIAL” scene through Metallum and Arts
-For the Return of Hesperia & the ITALIC Golden age
Metallvm Italicvm is a strong attack to the false emperors of nowdays

10 November 2015 : 3rd Studio Report
Photo & video sessions: The new photo and video sessions for the 5th album METALLVM ITALICVM took place at the end of October.
The first place involved was the Ancient Roman Theater from the ruins of the ancient Roman town HELVIA RECINA (Macerata, MC, IT).
Footage taken by Forward Agency (www.forart.it) with the authorization of "Ministero per i Beni e le Attività culturali e del Turismo - Direzione regionale per i Beni Culturali e Paesaggistici delle MARCHE - Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici delle MARCHE". Area di proprietà della ”Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici delle MARCHE".
Ancient Italic woman for the photo session interpreted by Claudia Pagnanini.
The second session took place at the Scena Italica Crypt in the Leopardian town Recanati (MC).
The first promotional pics are now available.
Recording places: the album, that ends the tetralogy on Virgilio's ENEIDE and the pre-Roman cycle, has been recorded in 2 different places: tracks 1-5 recorded with a mobile studio (by DPF Studio http://www.dpfstudio.it/) near the Roman theater of HELVIA RECINA (where the photos were also taken); tracks 6-7 recorded at DPF Studio, played on a ghost ambient track taken by Hesperus at the glacial lake of Sibilla (also called Pilatus Lake), on the Sibillini Mountains (Marche).The lake was an initiatory place for many alchemists, knights, esoterists (Virgilio, the author of Eneide, might have been there).
Instruments & sounds: The album is a MANIFESTO of the genre (Italic Metal) and uses every musical standard genre to create an epic, luxurious, grandiose, spiritually/culturally Italic, e formally metal & rock sound: from pagan black metal to NWOBHM, from epic metal to AOR, from Italic folk to identitary rock and opera music (in the structure there is a Requiem sung by a Tenor and opera choirs).
About electric guitars: no pod or distorsion pedals used, only a valve-amplifier and a 6-cone cabinet to obtain a nicer old-style dynamic (except for chorus & delay on clean sounds).
About bass: active pickup bass and a valve-amplifier.
Folk instruments: Italic-Roman instruments were used again (tibia, flauto di pan, crotali, timpani, tamburelli, sistro) and cetra & lira were added.
About Keyboards: no guitar synth or programmed keys (like on the previous album Spiritvs Italicvs); everything on the new album was actually played: controller midi keyboards to use a professional orchestra software, an old '60s Mellotron to create old colossal movies atmospheres, 2 Korg keyboards and a Roland Jupiter to create epic, sophisticated wave sounds in the '80s style.
About drums: a Vintage Rock kit, not a metal one, was used.
About vocals: more variety of clean vocals.
This time there are no movie dialogues but more Latin parts originally taken from the Roman poem Eneide, interpreted by Hesperus.
