Biography

:: BIOGRAPHY ::

Digitalis Purpurea is an Electro-Industrial project creating idiosyncratic music since 2000 from Turin, Italy. Pi Greco and C-Power have fused together several modern variations to produce a new, potent, synthesized shockwave. Digitalis Purpurea is the botanic name of the Purple Foxglove, a plant symbol of temptation, pleasant but at the same time destructive. Traditionally the foxglove was used as medical plant but had also an obscure use, an overdose in fact is lethal. That’s why it was called “devil’s finger”. Particularly Pi Greco chose the name referring to a poem by Giovanni Pascoli “Digitale Purpurea”, where he compares Maria, the blonde innocent to Rachele the brunette with “burning eyes”. This is also the inspiration for one of their first songs “Elena & Maria”. The first demo tape “Pi Greco Squad” has been produced in a very limited number of copies and it has been recorded in winter 2003 at CryptoStudio with a vintage analogic 8-tracks recorder that provides a rough, rotten and rusty sound to the songs. A new approach that mix together modern electronic beats and old school black metal style making the band a new talent of the Italian industrial scene. Some songs included in the first release has been re-proposed in 2004 with the self-produced EP “19 celebrations in 19 mutilations” that helped to solidify Digitalis’ international fanbase through their web-presences.
