Karnak – Tutti i Colori Del Buio

This self produced album from Karnak was made to tribute the Italian horror filmography of the 70s, hence the title (it is a famous Sergio Marino‘s movie made in 1972).

The songs are dark and obscure yet brutal.

In this album there are a lot of guitar synth interventions, not all the keyboards you hear actually come from a synthesizer but from the midi pickup of my guitar, tracking a Roland GR-50.

It’s also the first recording I made with a 7 strings guitars… never came back to six since then!

For the first time, anticipating the times, guitars were recorded by using amp simulators, that nowadays are a common rule.
