Jeff Richardson I have come to realize, or perhaps, I have always known, that so much of dark metal is a reaction to, an interest in, or a recognition of, our descent or fall from Grace; there is an anger and bewilderment attached to this knowledge. With this comes a constant meditation upon our not really knowing anything regarding the 'panorama'. Thoughts, while listening to this cryptic plaint. A work of some magnitude. Favorite track: Oscurità.

"I find this, on the whole, to be a quite fascinating experimental/hybrid work that defies any simple genre label (if I were to invent one it would probably have to be something like Post-Blackened/Ambient Doom...). It's been well thought-out and well-crafted, structured with some discipline, yet retaining a sense of Italian flair and theatricality. Significantly more instrumentally-inclined and atmospherically-slanted than most Black-influenced projects, it's stripped-down and skeletal enough to also defy any easy comparisons - most of which would be partial and misleading. It's simply esoteric, far off the beaten track, and well worth investigating." Mike Liassides at


The album is structured as a descent, albeit not necessarily a negative one. Certainly not the Fall of the True Lightbringer, but rather the fall of a common demon, of any demon.
A spiritual and psychological descent in the perception everyone has of the external world and its stimuli, of its panorama.

Percezione tries to outline a symbolical picture of what Men and their Societies consist of today.

The use of the Italian language has been rooted in the concept since its very beginning. The choice of a slow, sombre, black-metal-stained sound is a natural and a due one.
