Grand Guignol Diabolique
The name of this band is Grand Guignol Diabolique. All other things don't matter. This project begins where the previous one stopped. The name of that band was Beat Babol. All other things don't matter at all. The name of this album too is Grand Guignol Diabolique. Do you really still wanna know all other things? Look inside yourself. The human creature is made of blood, pulsing all through the body. And when this blood ceases to pulse, this creature dies, even if technically it could be still alive. So, these songs are about blood. Blood and life. Wild life, that's living all sensations at full throttle, don't caring at all of the consequences. Sometimes it could seems a little bit negative. Some other times (well, just immediately after, often...) it could seems absurdly positive. It all depends on us. The men, the women. All the creatures of this wild, crude and still so wonderful world. But let's go back to the project and this is the story so far: all the 10 songs which are featured here were originally written for Beat Babol's third album, band active in Bologna and Italy from 2001 to 2005 approximately. Their previous albums (all self productions) were 'Stavolta Parole' (2001) and 'Anche Stavolta Parole' (2002). But Italy is not the prettiest place on earth for young & emerging bands or artists, so they went on and on between highs and lows, mainly doing occasionally gigs only. These songs were written then, with the only purpose of finding new motivations and get enthusiasm back, in spite of all the difficulties. Unfortunately these songs never saw the light, because the band splitted up suddenly after, in late 2005. Amyway pretty much rough material was recorded, as demos, for the members of the band, so they could listen to the songs to be played in the forthcoming gigs. To make all the band's members. Some of these recordings were only cover versions of famous songs, which have recently been released as a 'posthumous' album by 'Beat Babol' (and this actually becomes the third album of their too short career) called 'Tutte mie' (2008). All other tracks (the original ones, except the covers) have been now completed, even if always trying to keep the original sound as much as possible, and the one you're about to hear is the result. We hope you'll like it. The name of this band is Grand Guignol Diabolique. Nothing so dramatic, only blood, beautiful red blood. All other things don't matter and won't ever do.
