Daedalus - Motherland

Daedalus is a Progressive Metal band from Genoa, Italy. The first core gathered in 2000 following an idea by Fabio Gremo. They worked on the first songs drawing inspiration from different musical genres and bands as Queen, Arena, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and Rush, all the same trying to define a new musical identity.

In 2003 the band recorded and published the first album Leading Far From a Mistake.

In 2009 Galileo Records and ProgRock Records released the second album The Never Ending Illusion, with SPV distribution.

Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth) and Alessandro Corvaglia (La Maschera di Cera) appear as guest singers. Roland Grapow (Helloween, Masterplan) mixed the tracks while Mark Wilkinson (Marillion, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden) drew the artwork.

The Never Ending illusion contains 10 songs; each one of them deals with a different way of being concerned with the dualism between reality and dream/illusion. The lyrics draw a sort of path starting from facing the every-day life, passing through the sensation of 'something' existing beyond the common aspects of life, then ending with a contemplation of one's own dreams, in a way that could be seen as closing the circle.

Motherland, their third album, has been published by Galileo Records on May 2nd 2011. It contains 11 songs pervaded with strenght, melody and contemplation. The lyrics offer different points of view concerning the uneasiness in today's world and analyze some peculiar elements that may lead to an inexorable crumbling of modern society.

Roland Grapow (Helloween, Masterplan) mixed the album and played a killer guitar solo, and Trevor (Sadist) and Elisa Montaldo (Il Tempio delle Clessidre) appear respectively as guest singer and main keyboardist. The artwork has been drawn by Nerve Design (Threshold, Extrema, Vision Divine, Sadist). Motherland got a very accurate production and is a fresh-sounding, heavy and enthralling album.

During these years Daedalus played many live shows in relevant venues and as opener for well-known artists such as Claudio Simonetti (Goblin, Daemonia), Daniele Liverani (Twinspirits), DGM, Extrema, Misfits, Stramonio and Simon Says.

After some line-up changes over the years, Daedalus actually are:

Davide Merletto (vocals)

Andrea Torretta (guitars)

Fabio Gremo (bass)

Sandro Amadei (keyboards)

Daz La Rosa (drums)
