Italian post-metal veterans The Blank Canvas released their second album studio album Dark Mirage on February 18th 2022 via Drown Within Records, Vollmer Industries and Zero Produzioni.

An unprecedented scenario made of broken grooves, heavy and elegant riffs, sharp electronics, a direct and piercing vocal performance: Dark Mirage, the new album by The Blank Canvas, aims to envelop the listener in a dystopian and distressing narrative.

An obscure dream, sprung from the post-apocalyptic expanses, where nature has surrender and has given way to a landscape full of contrasting and multifaceted feelings. You find yourself in the midst of this, with nothing else around except for what remains.

Memories of a lost future like blinding hallucinations. The album recounts the progressive existential bewilderment of an individual with a lacerating and destabilizing tone: the compositions become hypnotic, deceptive and overwhelming, returning, track after track, the distorted image of a troubled life form in constant change.

Strongly influenced by the cosmic horror imagery read in a modern key and produced by the skilled hands of Riccardo Paso Pasini (Ephel Duath, Nero Di Marte, The Secret),  at Studio73 in Ravenna, Dark Mirage” represents a decisive step forward in the evolution of the band adding new heavy material to their bold sonic architectures, and completed with artwork by Ellie Yanagisawa

Drown Within Records, Vollmer Industries and Zero Produzioni will release Dark Mirage on CD and through all digital providers on February 18th.

The Blank Canvas is a project born in 2017 from members of Incoming Cerebral Overdrive and Karl Marx Was A Broker. The aim was to create a particular sound palette, based on heavy guitars, powerful basses and electronic finishes that result in an amalgam of sonority attributable only to the band. With these intentions in 2018 the first album entitled Vantablack comes out under the Italian label Drown Within Records.

The album received great feedback from critics and the public alike, and the release was followed by a series of concerts throughout the country. After a line-up change, the group focuses on composing new material mostly composed during the pandemic. As soon as the lock down is over, the recordings of the new album begin which take place at Studio73, produced by Riccardo Paso Pasini. Thus takes shape the new work of the band entitled Dark Mirage, to be released on February 18th for Drown Within Records, Vollmer Industries and Zero Produzioni.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6856 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
