Shape info

Shape, which is published by Netherlands-based DVS Records, is the first full-length album from Dynamic Lights. It contains 8 songs for a total listening time of about 60 minutes. Shape has been recorded at the beginning of 2004 at Fear Studio (watch the photos from the recording sessions) and features some great sound and impact. This album joins the energy of metal with the depth of progressive rock, in an intense and original recording which is a major milestone for Dynamic Lights' sound. A 12 pages full color booklet enriches the album with great photos and artwork which explores the concept of shape and shapeless.

Night Lights info

“Night Lights” is the first, significant experience that Dynamic Lights faced with professional recordings. Unfortunately, even if passion and hard work were at their highest, the band faced several problems throughout the entire rehearsal sessions, so “Night Lights” cannot be considered a true display of what Dynamic Lights were in the beginning and, obviously, what they are now! You can also see that the line-up is different to the actual one, and the music, albeit full of bright ideas, feels the effects of the band‘s early rawness. However “Night Lights” can still be considered a great memory of the first steps of Dynamic Lights, and an essential stride forward for the young italian band.

Title: Night Lights
Year: 1999
Music: Dynamic Lights (except “Asymptotic love” composed by Y. Refolo)
Lyrics: Matteo Infante (except “Asymptotic love” written by Y. Refolo)

1- Constant search
2- Wreck
3- Soul destroyer
4- Mind collapse
5- Wreck (part two)
6- Pasting beyond the end of a wave
7- Strain
8- Asymptotic love
9- Coagulation
10- Face

Born as a spin-off proposal of some Dynamic Lights members, "barracuda" is an instrumental trio that covers fusion atmospheres as well as rock themes, inspired by such bands as Tribal Tech or Vital Tech Tones. The project, including also Matteo Infante (on bass) in the beginning, has been definitely a great and exciting ground for the musicians (of Dynamic Lights) to discover new sounds and diverse solutions. The recordings of “barracuda” took place in the summer of 1999. All the tracks were taken from the 2nd up to the 16th of August, including the jam sessions named “Heads down” and “Two four one”. Over dubbings took place in the following weeks, along with the added bonus of the CD Rom data (made by Raffaele Mariotti). The outcome of “barracuda” is very good, but the musicians, young perfectionists indeed, feel some missing vibes amongst the tracks in retrospective.
