Iperico is a prog-rock group from the north-east of Italy formed in late 2006 by the guitarist Ezio and the singer Ferruccio, both coming from cover bands, as they decided to create their own music.
They first write down some lyrics and music and then involve other musicians to start working on this raw material. As these first songs come to the light, they are deeply influenced by the 70’s hard rock and underground music scene, due to the musical taste of the leaders. In the next songs the group pays more attention to modern sounds to lower the influence of the past.
A few months later some new musicians join the group. With Tymes on the keyboard and Farley on the saxophone the line-up is completed. The saxophone enters as an additional instrument first but then Iperico start to use it on all songs, so it soon becomes a peculiarity of their sound.
In the next two years the band plays regularly in pubs, clubs and also some important events of their district like “Music in Village 08”.
In late 2008, after some time spent in homemade recordings Iperico get the chance to enter a studio and record their first official demo, but at the same time they have to face some changes in the original line-up .
After a long, hard period without a bass player Nicola finally joins the group and the line-up in once again complete.
In July 2009 Iperico record a live concert (Live @ LifeMusic ’09).
Nowadays the group is recording and working on new tunes while playing regularly in its district.
Iperico are now looking for a label to record their first album.
One of the best studio tracks from Iperico, enjoy it!
INERTIA AND GRAVITY
So let’s talk about us, what’s gone wrong, what’s grown bad
Have a sit, take your time, please do speak, wait a while
All the times we felt trust I just could die for it
All the times we argued you stopped it saying let it go
Like a Manta-ray moving slowly at the very bottom of the sea
I won’t care about this kind of things, I’ll just breathe my life here quietly
Without thinking about you, your complain and your disappointment
There you stand like a proud young goddess but now I’ m not blinded by your light
I’ve been part of your plans, you’ve been joy in my hands
I’ve been lying on your bed, good things that I don’t regret
What you asked I have done, more for you than for us
Because I believed that someday all my efforts could be rewarded
But you always knew what you wanted when you spoke with your bittersweet voice
I won’t change my way of living, even if you’ll wait a while
And if I’ll try to forget you I know I’ll only suffer more because you left your trace in me
Beyond all this misunderstanding I’ll miss you, you’re twist in my identity
As you can see there’s so much to consider in this game whose name I won’t repeat
A name which has been abused and raped, I don’t want such a bad end for this story
Maybe I’m just a pain in your living, get away before I come back to you
I just fear the ghosts of the future
And I can’t get help from the past
