Of the new record, vocalist Nicolò Carrara comments: “Writing this EP was a very cathartic experience. The amount of attention to detail in every riff, in every vocal line, in every song structure, was unprecedented. We threw away lots of ideas to make room for only what every one of us thought was perfect, innovative, and mature. This was obtainable only through the strong and resonant artistic vision of the members of DSF.”
Damned Spring Fragrantia came into existence in 2006 during the members’ high school years in Parma (IT), starting out primarily as a Metalcore/Deathcore band. The quintet’s first few years were spent playing anywhere and everywhere, whilst recording their first two EPs Emptiness – Fragments Of A Decayed Society and Damned Spring Fragrantia, released in 2009 and 2011 respectively. Both demonstrated the inclusion of more progressive and mathcore elements to the band’s sound, taking influences from Ion Disonnance, The Chariot and The Acacia Strain.
By 2012, the band had signed to Basick Records, who went on to release debut full-length, Divergences – a record which was mixed and mastered at Domination Studio (San Marino).
During the years that followed, the band focused on promoting the album in Europe and subsequently played several tours, appearing at UK Tech-Fest and supporting some of the most important bands in the scene such as TesseracT, Veil Of Maya, Northlane. In 2016, the band welcomed a new guitarist and by mid-2017 had a brand new EP recorded. Chasm will be released November 17th 2017.
Autumn tour dates will soon be announced.
