Sentence (2)

Italian HC-metal band, active from 1997 to 2007.

Biography: Sentence started playing together in 1997 as a project of hardcore-metal music in the vein of the biggest and most known bands of that time. After a short time looking for the right members for the first line up, and after a short period of rehearsing, Sentence started playing all over the north-east part of Italy and in many of the biggest clubs of the seaside. That was a very good time for the band and the live shows made it stronger and stronger, the audience showed a big interest in Sentence and every gig was intense and hard.

After three months of intense rehearsing, Sentence recorded 6 songs in a small local studio; the sound quality wasn't superb, but the essence and the power were there. Kids all over Italy appreciated the recordings and the 200 copies of the printed demo tape called "Another Day Ends" sold out quickly. In 1999 the line-up changed, but the big interest shown for the band pushed them to look for something more professional, so that, without a steady line-up, Sentence booked a whole week at Fear Studios to record 2 songs to be put on a 7" released on Tomcat Records two months later.

"Perfection Through Disfunction" represented their first debut in Europe. This time the band worked with a professional team, supported by Gabriele Ravaglia and Riccardo Pasini, well known names in the Italian music landscape because of their involvement in big productions. During 2000 Sentence worked hard trying to put together both live gigs and practicing in order to make new songs for a full length CD that would be recorded at Fear Studios. The new master piece "Dominion On Evil" was a good mix between metal and hardcore, many labels showed interest in it, but the band signed on the Spanish indie label Dark Sun. "Dominion On Evil" is sold out in few months.

During summer of 2000 Enrico entered the Sentence clan on the guitars and with his precious help Sentence toured Europe and concentrated on other new songs, recorded in September 2001. Those tracks were included in "War", their new release on Good Life, that came out in October 2002. In 2003 their first full length "Dominion On Evil" had been re-released through the Japanese label Alliance Trax. Sentence also had recorded a brand new song for a split cd with the metal maniacs Extinguish The Fire from Japan. That split was released through Alliance Trax Records from Japan. After this record followed a Japan tour with Extinguish The Fire for five days.

Late 2003 Sentence got some problems with some members so their line-up changed a lot. After two long years, Sentence got a strong line-up with a brand new solid drummer (Michele Minganti aka Da Joiner). They started to write new songs in late 2005 and in summer 2006 they released a brand new Ep with 5 songs through the label Burning Season Records from Austria. In 2007 Sentence came to an end being the last original metalcore band of the 90's in Italy.
