HESPERIA | STUDIO REPORT PT. II
After the end of the instrumental recordings of the 6th Hesperia album titled CAESAR [ROMA vol. I], the vocal recordings have begun.
The album will be a concept about Julius Caesar, a rock opera with a strongly cinematic and martial atmosphere.
The genre will be again Metal (in every side and subgenres) with influences from neofolk, folk with archaic instrumets (for example a Crwth in De Bello Gallico), italian identitary rock and prog, italian opera, psichedelia in its primordial shamanic form, in the way of ancient roman religion, in a reverse side than the one used at the end of the '60s.
(the album was composed searching for divine inspiration through psycho-physic purification, using edible incenses, tanthric yoga, and some shamanic techniques in solitary and ritualistic places)
The album consists of 10 tracks, linked by the Caesar concept. Every track has its intro, and there are some leit-motif as usual. Some complex odd time measures will be reintroduced as for the old albums (for example 7/4, 23/8, 73/8).
The languages used are latin and italian (the title track is entirely in latin).
For the latin words the archaic diction will be used.
There will be less clean vocals and more aggressive and martial vocal parts.
The photos of this studio report have been taken near the Roman Bridge on the RUBICON river, where Caesar crossed the Rubicon, saying "Alea Iacta Est"; the Rubicon river was the natural boundary between Gallia and Roma.
Some audio ambient sounds for the album have been taken here
Some of the guests: M (True Endless/Skoll), Ant (Frentrum/Orcrist).
Next studio report will follow soon!
