Dark Quarterer: new record deal, new album

Metalnews Power of
Dark Quarterer are 1 of 2 bands that have just signed a record deal with Metal On Metal Records this month. The Italian metal veterans, known as the pioneers of the epic/progressive style, have just recorded their 6th full-length "Ithaca" which they will be releasing via Metal On Metal Records next April. "Ithaca" is a concept album utilizing the Homeric return journey of Odysseus to his home island as a metaphor for the journey of life

About the band's new record deal, Gianni Nepi, the band's vocalist/bassist commented: "We've known Simone and Jowita for years. They often came to our concerts, and there's always been a great, friendly relationship between us. Oftentimes Jowita would take photos at our shows and share them with us. We've had the chance to see the quality of their releases, and when we needed a new label, it seemed natural to consider their involvement. We met several times before finalizing the terms of the agreement and we believe it's a great opportunity to keep on releasing our albums in the best way possible."

Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi, Metal on Metal Records CEO, added: "My first meeting with DARK QUARTERER and their unique music was in 2004, at the Keep It True festival in Germany. I had not heard any song of that band before, and I was enchanted on the spot. We've kept in touch ever since and by now we've seen the band live over a dozen of times... and each time they sounded incredible, no matter if they played on a big stage or in a small club or a biker bar. A spotless performance is a guarantee with his band. Such level of talent and professionalism is rare these days indeed. It's an honour for us to be working with this legendary band that also happens to be comprised of true gentlemen."
