Arcane Tales / Bio

The band's born in the 1995 under the name of "Ravens", by an idea of the guitarist Luigi Soranno. Formed by 5 elements, it's able in the following two years to play in various pubs, clubs and manifestations of its small town, playing many covers of two of the best heavy metal bands of ’80-’90: Iron Maiden and Metallica. One day in 1998 after the listening of a masterpiece known to all as "Symphony of Enchanted Lands" of the italian metal band Rhapsody (now Rhapsody of Fire), also the kind of music of the band changes slowly from classic metal to power epic metal and the band name is changed in "Arcane Tales", besides Luigi Soranno becomes also the guitarist-singer of the band. In 2001 Arcane Tales record in Matera their own first demo CD called "Triumphant Steel" (with 4 own songs, written by Luigi), playing ever more times in their town and occasionally out of it, for example at "Rock Off Challenge" in Massafra (TA), where over a total of 100 bands, their position is 22nd. Unfortunately in 2002, after 7 years, the band stops living, because of various reasons, but the project never dies in the mind of Luigi, who in 2003 leaves its town to go to live in Verona, writes new songs and develops the concept of the "Sapphire Stone Saga". In the year 2008, he ends to work on another cd of Arcane Tales’ project, called "Into the Firestorm", with 8 new songs, but he's yet searching for musicians... In the first days of april 2009 Luigi finishes to work at the third cd of the band. The new album, called "The Hangman Angel", contains 8 songs. After the hard work of mixing, it sounds more epic than ever, meanwhile, the musicians' quest ever continues... 2010 begins with the recording of new material that will give life to the next album named "Power of the Sky". Again, the sound of the new songs it's bombastic!! You can find and taste a new composition's level in the music and lyrics. The result is really amazing (an example for all: the opera choirs on "The Alliance Horns Resound").... but probably at this point Luigi understands this will remain a own solo project, so the research for other musicians ends. After more than 1 year of pause, in 2012, Luigi records new songs for another cd, the 5th. This time the name is "Fire and Shadow", where the songs are reaching a good production's level, sounding more powerful than before. In 2013 Luigi records again material for the new cd "Destiny Has Complete". Undoubtedly, this is the album where you can hear the true Arcane Tales' musical essence, the album where the songs' sound reaches out the higher level ever!!
