Francesco Conte - guitars
The band formed in 1999 in Rome, Italy.
The band recorded its first self-produced promo in May 2000 called "Secession makes post-modern music" at The Outer Sound Studios by Novembre’s drummer Giuseppe Orlando. The good feedback allowed them to sign with a music label, a young italian label called "My Kingdom Music". During the recordings of the first LP they had to recruit a new guitarist, Alessandro Pace filling the place left by Francesco Tumbarello. In 2003 the band finally released the album "Undressed Momento", a record with a more hybrid sound based on emotional atmospheres, wave/rock/metal guitars and a powerful rhythm session. In 2004 the band signed with a new record label, the german "Prophecy Productions". Dopoguerra was born and is considered the "symbolic debut album" for Klimt 1918. After the release of Dopoguerra the band made some live appearances and recruited a new guitarist Francesco Conte who co-operated with many local and international artists/bands. Together they gave birth to the new record in June 2008 called Just in case We'll never meet again (Soundtrack for the Cassette Generation).
