In this world full of noise are we still able to hear ourselves? The Distant Landscape project is the brainchild of Marco Spiridigliozzi, to express, with total honesty, feelings that until now, were hidden. Insights, the first album from the band, is a sequence of self-analysis, a continuous introspection made from melodies and words, passing from dark, hopeful, melancholic and dreamy atmospheres to bright moments that still have a thin line of nostalgia.
Distant Landscape have created a post-rock metal characterized by themes in continuous evolution, but also by radical atmosphere changes that are often present in the same song. Unlike the other works released by Marco Spiridigliozzi (with different bands), this album is the result of careful, stylistic and musical research.
Every riff, theme, atmosphere and melody has been chosen to track a real emotional landscapes. Insights is an intimate album. It was started as a private work, but as time went by, it took a particular shape and the artist decided to publish it. In all the songs, guitars dominate with a wide range of sounds, while for the voices are given a modern and clean conception. Finally, to enrich the work, Insights utilizes the voice of Francesca Giuditta, a member of the dreaming gothic doom metal band Raving Season.
