SURVIVAL on Dante's Purgatorio
The second episode of Dante's Divine Comedy, Purgatorio has just been released by Musea. This 4CDbox contains 36 songs by 36 fantastic progrock bands from all over the world. Survival's contribution is the 9.53 min.track "Impressions". Click the album cover to order your copy today!
The Musea label and the Finnish magazine Colossus endlessly continue their quest for the greatest universal themes, in order to complete their collection of concept-albums dedicated to Progressive rock. The hero of the day is Dante ALIGHIERI, the famous medieval author from Firenze who wrote "The Divine Comedy". That's precisely this epic piece of work, without a doubt one of the greatest books of all times, that serves as the basis for this new project. And of course, it has been divided in three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso. The first volume is made of thirty-four "cantos" dispatched on four discs (!), each one showing the personal interpretation of an international band, according to the rules of the genre: no drumboxes, the only instruments allowed are those of the mighty Seventies, the same as for the musical inspiration. FLAMBOROUGH HEAD, TEMPANO, LITTLE TRAGEDIES, COMBINATION HEAD, YESTERDAYS, NEMO, LADY LAKE, WILLOWGLASS, ARS NOVA, SINKADUS, BRIGHTEYE BRISON and GREENWALL are some of the groups involved... The second part, Purgatorio includes SIMON SAYS, NEMO, OZONE PLAYER, RAIMUNDO RODULFO, WILLOWGLASS, NEXUS, NUOVA ERA, SURVIVAL , LITTLE TRAGEDIES, PHIDEAUX, MAD CRAYON, LADY LAKE, FLAMBOROUGH HEAD, YESTERDAYS, EQUILIBRIO VITAL amongst others.

THE FINAL CHAPTER (released 29 December 1999)
About the music.
The Apocalypse, the last chapter of the Bible. A difficult book, the end of civilization as we know it. But also a book of comfort and redemption.
In the Middle Ages artists tried to picture the Apocalypse, in modern times however, artists don't bother much about the subject, especially in music. An explanation may be that most people aren't familiar with the book and what they know implies but death and destruction. l have dared to make an album about the Apocalypse. From childhood on I was fascinated by the Bible and in particular the last chapter: The Apocalypse.
l have tried to put my feelings into music, a dramatic kind of music, due to the subject.
Music that contains classical, symphonic and spiritual influences. Listen and let the music carry you along.
