SIGILLUM S, have been covering unknown territories among extreme electronics, fringe acoustics and occultist noise since 1985, with an original line up of Eraldo Bernocchi, Paolo L. Bandera and Luca Di Giorgio having now morphed into the current formation, where Eraldo and Paolo have been joined by Bruno Dorella, with Petulia Mattioli taking care of visuals, while many other friends and collaborators have contributed at different level through history.
They have been continuously developing their own special brand of post-industrial audio investigations, employing sound as a tool for mapping of the subconscious and a reconfiguration of cognitive processes.
The result has been an endless series of mutations, where, from the droning ritualism and ethnic explorations of the late '80s through the surreal science fiction soundtracks of the '90s to the super deep complexity of the new millennium, SIGILLUM S have been constantly evolving, crashing their way through a few tens of releases in all formats and feeling particularly at home on the stages of the world. The latest configuration is digging profoundly in an ever-changing continuum of harsh, irregular beats and sudden shift in experimental atmospheres, with an intrinsic penchant for unique graphic / video representation mixing with crazed theories and overblown textual philosophies of all kinds: a current obsession for space travel and apocalyptic utopia makes for a very dangerous, but very rewarding listening experience. Eraldo Bernocchi: Electronics, Guitar Paolo L. Bandera: Electronics, Samplers Bruno Dorella: Electronics, Guitar, Synth
Macelleria Mobile di Mezzanotte (alias MMM) is a project formed in 2001 in Rome by Adriano Vincenti. The name refers to the New York subway that after midnight turns into a dangerous slaughterhouse as seen in Clive Barker's novel "Midnight Meat Train". From power electronics and harsh noise of their first cult record "Profilo Ottimale delle Ferite", the band switched to noir jazz atmosphere melt in rough electronics bumped with sex and murder lyrics with their 2004 "Black Rubber Exotica" and 2006 "La Dolce Vita". 2007's "Ultimo Vero Bacio" introduced cinematic atmospheres and more dark romanticism. 2011 "Hardboiled Night Club" showed a transition towards more sophisticated songwriting and jazz oriented songs. In 2013, the band defined the uprising doom jazz scene with their "Black Lake Confidence" that featured a stripped down version of Twin Peaks' "Just You and I". In 2014, the band takes a detour in raw power electronics with "Nylon Crimes". It's a project involving Paolo Bandera (Sigillum S) as well and a tribute to the italian power eletronics scene. 2015 is the year of their most acclaimed release "Funeral Jazz", a bastard collection of noir ballads mostly sung in italian and their first album with Subsound Records. In 2017 the band released "Hiver Noir", a blurred collection of brutal dark progressive songs.
At the end of 2019, the release of "Noir Jazz Femdom" marks the 20th year of activity and also their most powerful record to date. A fierce collection of tracks spanning from harsh noise to industrial, doom jazz and post-electronica. The band is now working on their new opus that will see life in 2022, one more step into the dark days. MMM today is formed by four elements: Adriano Vincenti, Lorenzo Macinanti, Riccardo Chiaretti, Pierluigi Ferro.
