The idea to make living, in a musical project, a murder in which the executions can be interpreted as spiritual and at the same time as material, goes up to 2002, but because of many problems, the realization of the first demo was been possible only in 2004.
“Stillness’ Blade” is a concept on a series of murders, in which the victims represent the baseness that belong to human mankind, and they are integrating part of their murderer, who will descend into his deepest abyss, finding his ills and executing them. At the end of executions “Soulblighter” will be free from human imperfection that his victims personified. His thoughts, before and after the murder, are the songs’ lyrics.
In each song there’s an introduction supported by sonorous effects, in this introduction it can be heard how the murder happens. In each execution a different weapon is used, the choice of each weapon has a precise meaning. Every little detail has a precise meaning: the steps, the victims, the place where the executions happen. The sonorous effects are combined with the riffs. This project will be developed in a precise number of parts, and it will end with executor’s suicide.
The project “Stillness’Blade” began as one-man band by idea of Max Schito.The first demo,”SoulBlighter pt.1″, went out to the end of November 2004 and it was positively welcomed by the specialized press and by the webzines. In May 2005 “Stillness’Blade” becomes a real band, with the voice and guitar of Max Schito,the bass and backing vocals of Gian Paolo Marsano (ex- Amok,Therapy Of Pain,XanaX and ex-HeatenDom as Max Schito) and the drums of Antonio Donadeo (drums on ex-Undertakers, Necrotorture, Traitor, Exhumer, VITAL REMAINS).
The debut cd “The First Dark Chapter (Misanthropic Elevation)” has been recorded between October and November 2005 in Maglie (Le) Italy. While waiting the official realized of the album, the promo version of three songs came out: Soulbrighter, which has taken very good responses by webzines from all the world and the national specialized press.
