The previous vocalist of Secret Sphere, Roberto Messina and I have been trying to set up an interview and hopefully we’ll do it this Thursday for your pleasure. I know you have loads of questions in mind as yours truly does. Well I can tell you this much: he is back with another band: 6008 Days
The band is Roberto Messina on vocals, Valerio Bulzoni on guitars, John Macca on bass guitars and Marco Lazzarini on drums. Since I am going to interview the man soon I thought I’d start you off with their release and this impressive clip!
Band members, renown musicians in the Rock & Metal scene – members of Secret Sphere (ex), Lucky Bastardz, Lines n’ Noses, Silence Fear (ex), Ovrhol – are proud to see the tough and detailed job for the video production finally come to life. The video has been written, directed and producer by the celebrated visionary Antonio Masiello whose interest “is oriented towards opportunities that, involving several aspects of education and personal experience, use new technologies as a way of expression and a vehicle of ideas in an image – communication world.” The artistic interaction between the band and the director represents the perfect match between the two styles; Lyrics, Music and Images merge into an author-marked concept video clip born from the vision of the band to apply a countdown of 6008 days to our existence, through which our sleepy consciousness can be awaken.
6008 days left to free one self, to realize and atone everyone’s faults towards a world that is destined to self-destruction. 6008 days to think of a new approach to reality, too often marked by the idealism of “need” and too much into the loop “produce – use – die” introduced by the consumerism and multinational corporations.
A modern Messiah (frontman, Roberto Messina) resuscitates – unaware – in our days and in his roaming he finds himself in situations (unfortunately) dramatically “normal”. Moral and physical downfall, paradoxical circumstances reveal the truth behind the consumer era and the media distortion of reality; “the medium becomes the real message” [cit. McLuhan] and the final sentence is the total paradox of supporting the watcher to never lose hope for his own salvation.
A dreamlike trip, through the metaphor of a resurrected Christ, to find each one of us aware and so to blame. An invitation to think about the reality, to change the rules of the establishment and
build a new sustainable world. The age of Own without Being is going to an end, the countdown just started, up to the last one Bad Day.
Passions, fears and dreams of a group of musicians that decide to challenge themselves in a new role, though liberating a sound that will touch lots of people, indeed! 6008 Days play Rock as defined by grit and melody together, fine and essential arrangements, a musical proposal of immediate impact that still holds a depth and variety of musical ideas gradually unveiled by the listener.
“We come from the Metal and Hard Rock background, out of which we keep the huge energy and freedom of expression that we use to communicate with a large and wide variety of listeners; basically anyone who really loves ROCK in its widest terms.”
By introducing the official video clip of “The Bad Day”, 6008 DAYS want to take a chance to give a big THANKS all the pro’s who helped us in making this happen, with their love for our project, care and total dedication.
We want to thank our daily-growing community of fans also by letting them know we’re working on the full-length album followed by a live tour by the end of 2013 !
Yes, they are working on an album and they will tour soon – so, I will ask about this new album of their, planned tours and much, much more when I speak to Roberto Messina for you to read in these very pages!
Stay tuned and enjoy the music!
