Their sound comes from the fusion of two apparently distant worlds : classical music, opera , and rock . A "destiny" announced by the five musicians who attended the Conservatory of Salerno and the locals have decided to try this formula ...
The characteristics of their sound jump from the first listen . The alternation of lyrical singing with the rock or "light" singing, the mixing in the texts, some quotes from the classics of literature, sometimes harsh direct , sometimes poetic and introspective exposition of the themes of the songs , the style of the violin that passes from stringency imposed by the classic with his virtuosity , and the pleasant roughness of Celtic and popular theme. The bass that sews,with a very solid, driven and determined drumming , the groove that jump from the elegance of Bach counterpoint to the more rocky the harmonic riffs , powering to a rhythm section always present. The guitars finally, that amalgamate all with a powerful riffing and impetuous , carving out a space most harmonious than solist , creating an impressive wall of sound .
The musical influences of the ARS DIVINA come from the very essence of classical music, from Bach to Mozart, Pergolesi , Verdi, Puccini, Dvorak, Wagner , and many others, of course, but also from the rock black sabbath , led zeppelin , ac cd , pink floyd , metal , guns'n roses , nirvana , doors , pfm to the nearest system of a down , muse , but the list would be too long and not enough the page ...
The result of all this, it is definitely a kind original which has a base of hard rock , shades of dark , prog and folk.
