Dante's Purgatorio out now!

October 2009            

SURVIVAL on Dante's Purgatorio

The second episode of Dante's Divine Comedy, Purgatorio has just been released by Musea. This 4CDbox contains 36 songs by 36 fantastic progrock bands from all over the world. Survival's contribution is the 9.53 min.track "Impressions". Click the album cover to order your copy today! 





The Musea label and the Finnish magazine Colossus endlessly continue their quest for the greatest universal themes, in order to complete their collection of concept-albums dedicated to Progressive rock. The hero of the day is Dante ALIGHIERI, the famous medieval author from Firenze who wrote "The Divine Comedy". That's precisely this epic piece of work, without a doubt one of the greatest books of all times, that serves as the basis for this new project. And of course, it has been divided in three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso. The first volume is made of thirty-four "cantos" dispatched on four discs (!), each one showing the personal interpretation of an international band, according to the rules of the genre: no drumboxes, the only instruments allowed are those of the mighty Seventies, the same as for the musical inspiration. FLAMBOROUGH HEAD, TEMPANO, LITTLE TRAGEDIES, COMBINATION HEAD, YESTERDAYS, NEMO, LADY LAKE, WILLOWGLASS, ARS NOVA, SINKADUS, BRIGHTEYE BRISON and GREENWALL are some of the groups involved... The second part, Purgatorio includes SIMON SAYS, NEMO, OZONE PLAYER, RAIMUNDO RODULFO, WILLOWGLASS, NEXUS, NUOVA ERA, SURVIVAL , LITTLE TRAGEDIES, PHIDEAUX, MAD CRAYON, LADY LAKE, FLAMBOROUGH HEAD, YESTERDAYS, EQUILIBRIO VITAL amongst others.

The Final Chapter

THE FINAL CHAPTER (released 29 December 1999)


About the music.  

The Apocalypse, the last chapter of the Bible. A difficult book, the end of civilization as we know it. But also a book of comfort and redemption.

In the Middle Ages artists tried to picture the Apocalypse, in modern times however, artists don't bother much about the subject, especially in music. An explanation may be that most people aren't familiar with the book and what they know implies but death and destruction.  l have dared to make an album about the Apocalypse. From childhood on I was fascinated by the Bible and in particular the last chapter: The Apocalypse.

l have tried to put my feelings into music, a dramatic kind of music, due to the subject.

Music that contains classical, symphonic and spiritual influences. Listen and let the music carry you along.

        Album still available in the Webstore

Survival participates in new Project

Musea & Colossus Ry

Proudly presents

The Divine Comedy ? part 2

The Finnish Progressive Music Association COLOSSUS is planning to release a follow up to the 3 CDs box-set INFERNO (Musea FGBG xxxx). This new concept album will be based on the second cantica of the Italian Epic Poem ?The Divine Comedy?.

Here are some basic ideas of the project:

- The 33 ?cantos? of the PURGATORIO will be assigned to 33 bands. Each band participating to the project can choose one ?canto? and make their music inspired by it. Two bands can not have the same part so the first bands confirming their participation will have a better selection to choose from.
- The songs can be either instrumental or with vocals (also in mother language).
- Maximum length 7 min.
- All keyboards used on the songs should be original 70's instruments (Hammond, Mellotron, Minimoog, Clavinet, Fender Rhoades etc.) or be emulated with the best technology of today but no drum machines or programming is allowed!
- A retro, vintage, early 70?s feel is required (Genesis, Yes, EL&P, Gentle Giant, VDGG, Balletto di Bronzo, etc.)
- Each band participating will record their song by themselves. The deadline for the project will be January 2009 by which time the recordings on CD-R (non-mastered) should be sent to COLOSSUS.
- Each band will receive 5 copies of the printed 3 CDs box-set.
Deadline January 2009.
