- Vernissage Riccardo Giovanni Patriarca
This is the first thing I recorded ever, back in 1994. The band was called Subtraction, but it was the same core that later in the years changed into Karnak.
Actually it can be considered a full album, since it contains 8 songs and lasts more than 45 minutes.
The songs were written between 1992 and 1993, and there was a lot more songs, but since I joined the band right before the recording we chose to pick up the best ones.
The album was recorded by Andrea Rigonat, a friend of ours, a very talented guitarist that later became famous for being in the band for Elisa (a very popular italian pop singer).
The songs were a mix of classic death metal (Death and Pestilence were our main inspirations) and something more experimental like Voivod.
