Italian metal band Upon This Dawning stepped into the Take Am ring this week with Maggie Pannacione lobbing the questions.
Their new album We Are All Sinners is out via Artery Recordings on April 29. Singer Dani Nelli fielded the questions with a terrific sense of humor. We love him.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
We are hot, Italians and we love pizza and metal music.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Porn Actors or Master Chefs.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Dani is great chef and Teo is great skater. Matty loves movies and he basically knows all the actors names out there. Mose drinks a lot and Gabry is always grumpy.
Tell us about the Italian metal scene -- is it small? Is it bigger than we might expect? How does an Italian metal band plan for exposure and domination in the U.S.?
Italian scene? Next question please. We don't have any plans for that, we are just ourselves doesn't matter the country you belong to.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
We are not legally allowed to tell you what happened when we wrote this album.
Finish this sentence: Upon This Dawning is the artist that...
...will fuck your goddamn brains out.
Listen to the new song "Obey" below.
