Diamante reached an agreement with Atomic Stuff Records for the publishing of their third album named “Ad Vitam Reditus”, whose final recordings are now being made at Atomic Stuff in Isorella (BS), lead by Oscar Burato.
Diamante are a band from Brescia that started its career in 1994 from the union of two already existing bands. The main influences of their style come from rock/hard rock bands like Gentle Giant, Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, or prog bands like Area, Bliglietto Per L’Inferno, Il Rovescio Della Medaglia and Locanda Delle Fate. Their first plan was to write their own songs! After various changes, in 1998 with the new member Nico as vocalist and bass player the line-up becomes more stable and they record the first full-length album “Riflesso”. Even if this is a good studio experience, they aren’t fully satisfied of the work done because the melodies aren’t sufficient to create the result that they wanted to reach. From this negative point they want to improve their quality and after some years of study and practice, in 2007 the second album is recorded. This work, titled “Diamante”, shows the real nature of the quartet, characterized by 1970s sounds, a light progressive shade and a strong hard rock matrix! Unfortunately in 2011 the band loses Nicola, the keyboard player, for good. Thanks to all their friends, supporters and Nicola’s family, the hard choice is to go on with the band! Alan joins the band and they restart to record their new album. Their third work is due to be released at the beginning of 2014; the album will include a pair of songs written by Nicola while the other six were composed by the new lineup and a cover of “ Ballo in Fa# Minore”, a song by Angelo Branduardi.
