Biography

Highly regarded musician Claudio Simonetti (Goblin) forms Daemonia in 1999 with Nicola Di Staso on guitar, Titta Tani (also singer for prog-metal veterans DGM and drummer for US gore metallers Necrophagia) on drums and Federico Amorosi on bass, recording, him being keyboard player and producer, the album ‘Dario Argento Tribute’, dedicated to the Italian horror-maestro who’s movies credited in many occasions Simonetti as the soundtrack composer (including the all-time masterpiece ‘Deep Red’) and released at the beginning of 2000 by S4/Sony. The CD contains new, progressive arrangements (with the addition of a great symphonic orchestra) of the most famous soundtracks composed for Dario Argento by, apart for Simonetti himself, Goblin, Keith Emerson and Ennio Morricone.

In 2001 Daemonia record the album ‘Daemonia – Live… Or Dead’ for Simonetti’s Deep Red label. In this work we can find live versions of ‘Dario Argento Tribute’ plus 3 extra studio bonus tracks: ‘Halloween’, ‘Tubular Bells’ and ‘Gamma’. Again, an orchestra was utilized: it’s the Movie Strings Orchestra, formed by over thirty young and talented musicians.

Daemonia took part in the past at many international music events such as New York’s Cult-Con 2000 festival in November of the same year or Luxemburg’s Cinénygma International Film Festival in November 2005 and toured the world several times, being remembered for extremely intense gigs which took place in worldwide famous venues such as London’s Marquee, Amsterdam’s Paradiso and Milan’s Rolling Stone among others. In October 2002, during the Japanese tour, they also recorded the live-album ‘Live In Tokio’, released only for the asian market.
