about

The LP was recorded at ZetaFactory Studio and Dysfunction Studio. Recorded, mixed, engineered by Giuseppe Bassi of Dysfunction Productions and mastered by Giuseppe Bassi. Listen to our EP free on Spotify, or buy it on iTunes or Amazon mp3, or physically on our Store.
The album is a concept on the history of the Boii, a proud Celtic tribe who invaded northern Italy in 390BC conquering Bologna (They Burn). Then, they spread across the Po Valley (350 BC - Conquering the Plain) starting to face a menace from the south: the rise of the Roman Republic destined to build an Empire (Shadow of the Eagles - Battle of the Sentinum, 295 BC). They lived bravely focused on warfare and comradeship (The Gaul), but the war with Rome was a matter of time. A huge Celtic alliance was made to face the Romans, but they were massacred and conquered after an initial win (The Alliance - Battles of Fiesole and Telamone, 225 BC). The pride of the Gauls couldn't be kept down, so they start a huge rebellion when Rome was distracted by Carthago on the second Punic war along with all the population conquered (Total War - Second Punic war, 218-201 BC). Rituals were performed by druids to foresee the future (Druids in the Forest), and with the favour of the Gods the Roman were ambushed in the Selva Litana. A huge victory for the boy who killed two legions and the consul Lucius Postumius Albinus making a cup of his skull (Sacred Selva - Battle of the Selva Litana, 216 BC). Unfortunately, the revenge was inevitable. After the end of the Punic War, Rome turned all of its power against the Boii, making a genocide of free men on Modena. A culture destroyed along with a dream of freedom, the end of the Boii (Mutina Capta Est - Destruction of Modena, 193 BC).
All the story told in the lyrics, even if they are dramatized, are based on true accounts of Romans historian. Join us in this journey on forgotten times on which thousands of men died for freedom.

THE HASTATI COME FORTH
RAINING DEATH FROM THE SKY
WITH IMPOTENT RAGE

THE ROMAN CONCEIT ENRAGED THE WORLD
A PERFECT STORM
A CHANCE TO HIT THAT TRIBES CANNOT MISS

PLACENTIA ATTACKED FOR CARTHAGO
PADANIA FREED AGAIN

BESIDE THE BLESSED RIVER
WE HAVE NO FEAR OF DEATH

ENTANGLED IN TOTAL WAR

LIKE WOLF PACKS
IN THE NIGHT

Track Name: Sacred Selva
AXES, MALLETS WORK FAST ON THE TREES
THE TRAP IS PREPARED
LUCIUS, PROUDLY, WITH THE ARMY MARCHES TO HIS DOOM

IN SHADOWS BOII AWAIT SILENTLY THE LEGIONS
A SHIVER RUNS DOWN LUCIUS' SPINE
THE CALM WHISPERS PROMISES OF DEATH

A YELL FROM THE DEPTH OF FOREST
THEN HELL, DEADLY DOMINOES
LITANA STARTS TO CRUMBLE
THE TREES SHOW NO MERCY
PANIC, DREADFUL RUMBLE
TWENTY-THOUSAND MEN ARE SLAIN

LUCIUS RUNS, THERE'S NO WAY OUT
HIS SKULL IS A CUP WHERE BOII DRINK TO VICTORY

«...ANCIPITI STRAGES ARMA VIROS EQUOS OBRUERUNT UT VIX DECEM HOMINES EFFUGERENT. NAM CUN EXAMINATI PLEQUE ESSENT ARBOTUM TRUNCIS FRAGMENTISQUE RAMORUM. »

FEW MEN SHOCKED AND AGHAST RESIST TO THE HORDES
LUCIUS DESPERATELY KILLS AS MANY AS HE CAN

ROMANS NEVER SURRENDER
THEY DIE BRAVELY WITH THE GLADIUS IN THEIR HANDS

LUCIUS SHOUTS HIS FINAL OATH TO GODS:
"ULTIONEMQUE EAM FAUDIS IN DEORUM AC POPULI ROMANI POTESTATE [FORE]"
Track Name: Mutina Capta Est
ALONE, IN THE SPECTRAL LIGHT OF THE DAWN
A HOLE IN MY SOUL
BLEEDING FROM THOUSAND WOUNDS
HOPELESS AND TORN
THE TIDE HAS WASHED US AWAY
THE SILENT MUTINA BURNS
A NATION MELT IN THE SNOW
A DREAM OF FREEDOM GONE

ALONE, NOTHING IS LEFT TO PRAY FOR
REJECTED BY THE GODS
DYING OF THOUSAND WOUNDS
NATURE SPEAKS NO MORE
THE WHIRLWIND BLEW US AWAY
THE SILENT MUTINA BURNS
THE CRUEL DRAMA UNFOLDS
A DREAM OF FREEDOM GONE

A FIGURE STANDS EXPRESSIONLESS
AMONG THE CORPSES OF HIS ENTIRE LIFE
A STORY THAT WILL NOT BE TOLD
RUINS AND MISERY LOST IN TIME

VIOLENCE, MADNESS
SO-CALLED CIVILIZATION
ABUSE IN THE NAME OF A REPUBLIC BUILT ON TYRANNY

GENOCIDE, DESTRUCTION OF A CULTURE
THIS CRIME WILL BE REMEMBERED AS “PAX ROMANA”

THE END OF THE BOII
