Founded in 1990 as Banaau - Reformed in 2016 as Hollowscene
The band was formed in 1990 by guitar player Andrea MASSIMO and keyboard player Lino CICALA. The music was inspired by texts of T.S. Elliot's poem for the 25 minutes song "The Hollow Men" and for the 40 minutes song "Love Song". "The Worm" is inspired by E.A. Poe and his a 10 minutes song, but with more complex harmonies to show the drama of the text. The following years the band played this project live but despite the great success of that song it has never been distributed. And making those songs were a difficult task for the band which results in the departure in 1992 of the drummer Davide QUACQUARELLA and shortly after the bass player Dino PANTALEO The duo went on to play with other artists. In 2011, the duo met again after 20 years and decided to continue working on songs written by Andrea in the past years and this project made possible the release in 2015 of the EP "The Burial" who is again one twenty minutes songs inspired by texts of T.S. Eliot and divided in 5 tracks. This album is influenced by their love for the modern music and their study of old instruments and knowledge of different music genres. The music is Symphonic Prog with influences from GENESIS and STEVE HACKETT. The band is working on new songs and on the old songs to be released in the future, they will attend The FIM festival in Italy, September 11. The duo are hired some other artists for the recordings and the live shows until they find a permanent line-up.
