Short bio

It is quite difficult to set a date for the birth of Tarchon Fist; the group has in fact born and developed in conjunction with a series of events. The core unit was created at the end of March 2005, after the Rain’s severance, the memorable Italian group present in the metal scene from the 1980s, whose guitarist, founder and pieces’ author was Luciano “Lvcio” Tattini. This event coincided with the meeting with Luigi “J.J. Sange” Sangermano, Old Flame singer (Thin Lizzy tribute band, from Milan), and the following involvement of Marco “Wallace” Pazzini (bassist and founder of Basic Dreams, famous band from Bologna born in 1994). The starting idea was to continue with the Rain project, but this has not been possible because of a series of adverse situations. Between April and May 2005, two other components added to the initial ones: Andrea“Animal” Bernabeo, drummer graduated at Music Academy (music school from Bologna) and Lucio “Junior” Martelli, one of the best soloist guitarists from Bologna (among others, he was active in a collaboration with Labyrinth’s components). The band tested its capabilities in about ten live concerts between the end of 2005 and the beginning of 2006, where it presented the pieces which will be thereafter gathered in the album “Tarchon Fist”; among others “Metal Detector” and “Carved With Fire”; the riff of both pieces were written by Lvcio in the second half of the 80s. At the end of 2005, the band recorded a promo of two pieces (“It’s My World” and “Eyes Of Wolf”), distributed at the beginning just to the related professionals; Gabriele Ravaglia of Fear Studio in Alfonsine (RA) took care of the mixing. In July 2006 it was decided to use the name TARCHON FIST for this project, and, thanks to the great reply from the media delivery of the two promo pieces, the band started believing more and more in its capabilities. Always in July, the band entered the studio to record the whole album; meanwhile, the first Tarchon Fist Video was produced on the music “Eyes of Wolf” (direction, shots and editing by Iacopo “Jakk” Ghisolfi). Thanks to this video, the band was contacted by the label MY GRAVEYARD PRODUCTIONS from Brescia, and in October 2007 they signed a contract, that has started a collaboration active still now. Always in 2007 a promotional DVD was produced (just for related professionals), containing the “Eyes of Wolf “video, and also some videos of the band’s live performances. The editing of the 11 pieces, which will constitute the new album, have been carried out in Pri Studio (BO) by the guitarist and producer Roberto Priori, and the mix has been devolved upon Marco Barusso, a very well known person in the scene as he has been producer of Gli Atroci and sound engineer of Lacuna Coil.
