Old and obscure Italian industrial-ambient project. Still it´s one of those band names you remember from when you went through the endless pages of a mail order catalog from Cold Meat Industry
Die Sonne Satans born in 1991. From the mastermind P. Beltrame: “At that time I was often in Milan, for study reasons, where a few years earlier I met Stefano Musso (Alio Die) and with whom I began to explore the possibility of producing music. Following a first tape called Opus Vix Inchoatum titled "Nullae Procreationis Germines" I refined my technique and my musical aesthetics by giving life to the project as you know it. For me, DSS has always been synonymous with self-determination, an antidote to the tangle of conventions that I am bound to, and this is the reason why an iconoclastic and nihilistic approach pervades my entire production.”
Finally, after almost 25 years, DIE SONNE SATANS' Metaphora returns to light. Originally released on tape by Old Europa Cafe in 1993, it is mainly inspired by religious symbolism which is then transfigured, through the use of related sonorities (choruses, psalmodies, bells, organs), into grim and haunting sceneries. This new version, restored by Maurizio (Gerstein) Pustianaz and revised by the mastermind himself, sounds in a better and most cohesive way. It reproduces the original tracklist, adding new material previously released only on some rare compilations. The iconoclastic approach, which permeated the entire DIE SONNE SATANS production, is here more concrete!
