It was July 17, 1997 when a young band wrote the soundtrack for a theatrical show with the evocative title of “DRACULA” directed by Hermes Beltrame which took place at the Pomaro Monferrato Castle in Alessandria. The band here emitted the first sounds for what would become THE MAGIK WAY‘s first creation called “Dracula”.
Today, July 17, 2022, exactly 25 years after that date, THE MAGIK WAY open the doors of oblivion to that opera and they do so with a very simple and direct excerpt from an episode of the opera entitled “Van Helsing” in its renewed version to celebrate the 25th anniversary.
This is just a taste of what will certainly be one of the most anticipated works of the Italian underground of this 2022.
Here is what Nequam told us in presenting this project: “The idea of publishing our 1997 “Dracula” comes from the desire to fill a void. We wanted to immortalize our first theatrical effort, the first episode that saw us crossing the boundaries of music, in a format and with a graphic presentation that could satisfy us. In recent years we have received some really valid offers but, at the end, it will be My Kingdom Music to produce and support this release. We started from the original tapes, recorded with a 4 Tascam tracks and we “dusted” them, keeping in fact the scent of that time. It was an incredible journey to relive those notes, so immature and true. What you will hear will be the sound of THE MAGIK WAY as it appeared in those years”.
Let the ritual begin!
