The last 12 months have been very prolific for the Daal. Exactly one year ago "Decalogue of Darkness" and "Navels falling into a living Origami" were published, and besides the drummer Davide Guidoni published his first solo album at the same time "Echoes from the undertow " (B-Rain the name of his project). In 2019 the Daal decide to reprint a collection, which includes their second album (now sold out)" Destruktive Actions Affect Livings (D.A.A.L.), and two other discs that came out in limited edition: "Echoes of the falling stars" and "The call of the Witches". "Archives" presents itself in a splendid double package, with many images and descriptions of the material, omitting the details of their second CD (D.A.A.L.) in which, moreover, one of their best compositions is found ("The Dance of the Drastic Navels Part II") I would dwell on the second CD which contains some songs I have never heard before. "The Call of Cthulhu" is an o very dark chapter of their discography...scratchy, hard, desperate, with a final worthy of horror films The Suite "The Fall of the House of Usher" in pure Gothic style, with even a part sung, a very rare thing for the group "Witches" which I believe is part of a tribute album produced by Musea, and finally "Echoes" by Pink Floyd, also present on a tribute album, with the singer of the Bacio della Medusa Simone Cecchini! A record not only for completists, but for anyone who wants to go deeper, the unfathomable secret world of this strange creature!!
