From the dust returned are an italian progressive rock/metal band, born in Rome in 2015 from a Alex De Angelis idea, who proposed his project to Marco Del Bufalo (Sumera’s singer), Gianluigi Uzzo Costa (ex Reinwen’s bassist, band in which Alex was been singer), Dario Palazzolo (keyboardist) and Eddie Parenti (Southern Drinkstruction and Corpsef**king Art’s drummer).

Different events brought the band to several line-up changes, before taking the current mark.
First the coming of Miki on bass, joined by second bassist Luigi, Carlo on guitar and Flavio on drums, then the surrending of the idea of playing with two basses simultaneously and, at last, Flavio and Carlo’s commitments with their band (Nitro), led the Dust to review their line-up during the recording of their debut EP “Homecoming” (Sliptrick Records 2017).

It was during the making of their first album that the band fixed finally its line-up, with Danilo Petrelli (Graal‘s keyboardist) and Cristiano Ruggiero (Graal’s drummer) additions.
The EP after being recorded, unfortunately, was completely lost due to a mistake of the sound engineer, so the From the dust returned were forced to re-record it in a new studio, led by Zen Garden Production (Petrelli).


The album’s themes focus on several inner problems like schizophrenia, clinophobia, depression, selfishness and fear to love. Each theme becomes the song’s main subject. However, the real focus of Homecoming is in the opposite duality represented by the contrasting elements in the band: two opposing voices, Alex’s clean voice and Marco’s growl, acoustic against distorted guitars. All providing constant changes of atmospheres within the music.

The EP’s title was chosen by Marco Del Bufalo and was inspired by a chapter of the fix-up fantasy novel, “From The Dust Returned” written by Ray Bradbury. The title refers to the meeting of the band members, who came from different and varied musical backgrounds. This variety gives the band it’s very particular identity.

Track Listing:
01. Harlequeen | 02. Homecoming | 03. Echoes Of Faces | 04. Glare | 05. Wipe Away The Rain | 06. Sleepless

The album was recorded and produced by From The Dust Returned. All the songs were composed by Alex De Angelis and arranged by Alex with Miki Leandro Nini, the band’s bassist and Danilo Petrelli, keyboardist and sound engineer.

MELODY LANE review

FROM THE DUST RETURNED
– Homecoming - EP (Sliptrick Records, 2017)

EP di debutto per i romani From The Dust Returned. Sei tracce che contengono svariati stati d’animo dell’essere umano. “Homecoming” è un prog metal con sonorità anni ’70.

Genere: metal prog

Voto: 6/10

Schizofrenia, depressione, egoismo, raccontati nelle tracce di questo EP di debutto sotto l’etichetta Sliptrick Records. La provenienza da altre band dei componenti del gruppo, le loro esperienze maturate, rendono questo “Homecoming” un mix di stili, dall’hard rock all’heavy metal, dal prog alla psichedelica. Una particolarità è data dalle due voci, una pulita, quella di Alex De Angelis, mentre è molto growl quella di Marco Del Bufalo. Le atmosfere dark, fuse con parti melodiche, come quelle acustiche, ed i continui cambi di ritmo, tra una canzone e l’altra, rendono il progetto molto particolare nel suo genere. Non siamo di fronte ad un album che parte e va dritto per la sua strada, ma finito di ascoltarlo cerco di capire la vera identità del gruppo quale possa essere. Ma in fondo nemmeno dovrei dar troppa importanza a questa cosa, perché a volte la propria strada la si trova passo dopo passo. Non è mai facile recensire un EP, soprattutto quello di debutto di una band, perché in realtà si sa ben poco di loro, ed i giudizi spesso risultano affrettati, sia nel bene che nel male. Questo credo sia un buon inizio, ci sono cose interessanti al suo interno, sperimentazioni che andranno approfondite. Ad esempio proprio il passaggio dalla prima voce alla seconda, a volte è ben introdotto, altre volte molto repentino ed improvviso. Bisogna entrare in questo vortice pian piano, prima di riuscire a restare in piedi senza essere travolti.

LA LEGION UNDERGROUND review

From the dust returned est un groupe Italien de metal Rock progressif avec de multiples chants,le growl, le chant clair plus ou moins lyrique parfois.

Le groupe est jeune mais possède déjà une identité bien à lui comme sur "Harlequeen" qui dure 8 minutes et qui ouvre cet Ep. A la première écoute du disque, j’ai eu du mal à m’adapter à la musique du groupe, bon il faut dire que je sortais de l’écoute du dernier album de Suffocation...

"Harlequeen" montre une qualité vocale bluffante dans le chant clair. Alex n’hésite pas à pousser sa voix dans ses derniers retranchements. Il alterne entre puissance et finesse tout au long de cette composition influencée par les années 70, car il me semble reconnaître le son d’un orgue Hamond. Les 8 minutes d’"Harlequeen" sont superbes et vraiment passionnantes. Les chants se superposent pour donner une belle ampleur au titre.

Ensuite arrive une compo d’un peu plus d’une minute, instrumentale, pas spécialement indispensable donc j’enchaîne avec "Echoes of the face", il ressort là aussi cette dualité douceur guitare folk et guitare électrique, chant clair de haut vol et chant guttural (pas indispensable lui non plus).

Le coté folk prog de "Echoes of faces" de début de titre laisse place à un passage plus oriental finement amené. Le mélange des genres se fait dans une douce transition et les rythmiques orientales (hindou ?) sont lancées à l’auditeur avec la puissance folk qui fait toute l’âme de From the Dust Returned.

Les multiples changement de paysages au long du morceau lui donnent tout son intérêt."Echoes of the faces" possède lui aussi une belle dimension progressive qui me plaît bien.

S’ensuit "Glare", qui débute de façon intimiste. Le chant a un peu trop de reverb à mon goût, même si ça lui donne vraiment des air rock 70s, tout comme la guitare qui semble issue, elle aussi, d’obscures groupes 70s. "Glare" est une compo totalement inspirée, faite elle aussi d’une multitude de transitions, entre montées et descentes de rythmes.

Cet Ep est composé de 6 morceaux dont 2 de plus de 8 minutes. L’album est vraiment superbement travaillé aussi bien vocalement que musicalement. Je n’avais pas trop accroché à la première écoute, car on ne se replonge pas dans rock prog aussi facilement que cela, même si je suis un grand fan de ce genre, je n’ai pas énormément de temps pour en écouter.

Le petit mélange métal guttural et rock prog pourrait écarter quelques oreilles chastes mais en fait, il n’en est rien et à la seconde écoute je me suis régalé de cette album aux multiples niveaux.

Il y a énormément de plans à chacune des compositions et il faudra faire tourner le disque plusieurs fois avant de les entendre tous.

Alors, mon avis est que cet Ep de metal rock prog vaut largement le détour de par sa richesse dans ses compositions et pour la grande inspiration vocale dont il fait preuve.
