Eimog biography
EIMOG are an instrumental band formed in autumn 2005 in Agrigento, Italy. Four months after they were formed, EIMOG teamed up with indie band Fine Before You Came for a series of live concerts around Italy. The experience helped the band consolidating their live sound as well as expanding their fan base. Shortly after the successful live experience with Fine Before You Came, EIMOG released a 6-song demo tape called "UNTITLED". The demo tape was self-produced and self-distributed and was well received by their increasing number of fans.

The band made it twice to the finals of Italia Wave Love Festival and won a number of national music contests, gaining more confidence as they toured and played their instrumental set in front of bigger audiences.

During the first months of 2008 the band recorded their first EP "EARLY": 4 new songs which received positive reviews in Europe, United States and even as far as East Asia.

The enthusiastic reviews of "EARLY" injected the band with confidence as they toured Italy extensively. Eventually their efforts were rewarded: the band made arrangements with Canadian indie label ITERAPHONE RECORDS to distribute "EARLY" internationally. At the same time, two songs from the EP, "The Last Step Over " and "Oceanic", made it to a number of compilations in Italy, Korea and Japan.
After an extensive touring schedule which saw the band playing several live concerts around Italy, in 2008 EIMOG had the opportunity to play their music at MEI Festival, the most important Italian independent music fair; they were also invited to play at Ypsigrock Festival , opening for famous acts like APPARAT , dEUS , ART BRUT and PAOLO BENVEGNU .

In 2009 the band scheduled some studio time to rehearse and record their first album "SCENARIO".

Six tracks, 57mins of intimate, classically influenced post-rock, an artistic and emotional evolution of the background and sensibility of each member of the band. Additional strings were recorded during the studio sessions, played by Jascha Parisi (cello) and Sarah Diana (violin).

EIMOG are currently signed to the Italian indie label SUDWAY PRODUCTIONS; "SCENARIO" will also be distributed in Japan by FRIEND OF MINE RECORDS .
Their music is atmospheric, melodic, dreamy post-rock with strong classical music influence.

Eimog Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars EIMOG are a new Post-Rock band out of Italy. This is their debut released in 2010. We get the usual bass and drums but there are three guitarists, mind you two of them also play piano. We also get guest violin and cello on this recording. This is one of the saddest albums I have ever heard. Yes it's beautiful but man you wouldn't want to listen to this if something sad has happened in your life. Nothing new here as far as Post-Rock goes as we get the usual sounds and build-ups. This is just so well done though.

"Saved By Thirteen" is supposed to be "Saved By Zero" isn't it ? Oops wrong band. This one opens with chopped up sounding vocals as the music comes in and eventually takes over. It's solemn and slow before picking up a bit before 2 minutes. Cello joins in at 3 minutes then violin. It settles before 5 minutes with piano and guitar. Violin a minute later then it kicks in before 6 1/2 minutes. So moving. It settles back late. "Until Death Do Us Part" is a brighter song surprisingly considering the title. Drums and guitar standout. It becomes powerful with guitar leading around 4 minutes. "Jana" opens with the drums slowly beating as chunky bass and guitar fill out the sound. It's building. It settles back before 2 1/2 minutes then builds again to an intense soundscape. Another calm before 5 minutes.

"Building Empires Upon This Landscape" opens with gentle guitar and it's so moving. Strings join in. It settles 3 1/2 minutes in with percussion and gentle guitar then it builds. It settles again before 6 minutes. It doesn't start to build again until after 12 minutes. "May Tries To Be June" features piano and picked guitar then a beat comes in before a minute. It kicks in before 2 minutes. Nice. It then settles back. It's building 6 minutes in until it's intense around 8 1/2 minutes in to the end. "Madre" has a haunting intro as we get what sounds like mellotron and spacey sounds. Picked guitar joins in before a minute. A powerful atmosphere with strings follows. Drums before 4 minutes then it settles back.

Post-Rock fans should really check this band out, and if you need a soundtrack to make you cry then look no further.

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
