1) Deus ex Machina were formed in 1985 in Bologna (Italy); thus far, D.E.M.
have released seven albums, and have also appeared on four compilations
with other artists.

The artistic development of the group began with the realization of a rockopera.
It was based on an original story, inspired from a sense of the enduring
struggle between Man and Nature. The opera received critical acclaim when it
was performed; the critics described it as “unusual”, “powerful” and “extremely
elaborate”. In fact, the above praise is that which has been most commonly
ascribed to their music. This, coupled with their particular musical expertise
and compositional skill, has led them to be described as stylistically
uncategorisable, whilst maintaining the distinctive sounds of classic rock.
Finally, the Latin lyrics originate from the need to reconcile the melodious
nature of Italian (which is difficult to transpose into rock), and the immediacy
and fluency of English. Latin presented itself as the ideal solution.
In 1991, D.E.M. and Kaliphonia agreed to record and release the rock-opera
