Rockshots Records: Out Now! From The Depth Release “Back To Life (10th Anniversary Edition)”
Remixed and Remastered Version
2 Bonus Tracks “The Will To Be The Flame” Re-Recorded Version
“Nothing To You” Acoustic ft. Apollo Papathanasio
Release Date: February 19th
After the successful collaboration for the release of the sophomore album “Moments” this past August, Italian power metallers From The Depth and Rockshots Records join forces again to unleash the 10th Anniversary Edition of the band’s debut album “Back To Life”.
The new edition of the record was re-mixed and re-mastered by Santo Clemenzi (bass player of the band) at Angle Room Studio, and includes two bonus tracks: the first one “The Will To Be The Flame” was re-recorded by the current line-up (incl. Davide Castro, former keyboard player, and current studio arranger), the second one “Nothing To You (acoustic version)” features Apollo Papathanasio duetting with Raffaele “Raffo” Albanese who re-recorded the whole song.
Vocalist and frontman Raffaele “Raffo” Albanese comments about the 10th Anniversary Edition of “Back To Life”:
“After ten years from releasing our debut album ‘Back To Life” and some years later selling it out, we decided to release a new version of it to celebrate its anniversary. This record allowed us to hit so many amazing stages all around Europe. This record has its own story, with strengths and weaknesses, even for its emotional matter. This is why we gave it to Santo Clemenzi who made a sound update thanks to a new mixing and mastering, without distorting the original performances on it. We’re happy once again to team up with Rockshots Records after the excellent experience we had for our latest full-length “Moments”, as we are pretty sure they will give the proper value to this special edition.“

From The Depth was formed officially at the end of 2008. In 2010, with their first solid line-up, they released the demo “The Will To Be The Flame”, which quickly sold out.
In 2011 the band signed with Rising Records for the release of their first studio album “Back To Life”, published and released worldwide in November of the same year. Meanwhile, they attended many European festivals playing alongside bands such as Megadeth, Sonata Arctica, Overkill, King Diamond, Iced Earth, Moonspell, Lordi, Sabaton, Rhapsody Of Fire, Dragonforce and more.
Between 2013 and 2015 the band went through some line-up changes, but slowly, during live shows, they started the writing process for the “Back To Life” successor. By the end of 2016, a new limited edition EP was published with the name of “Perseverance”.
From 2018 the actual stable line-up is in place and after some live gigs the band focused on studio material to finalize “Moments”. The album was mixed and mastered by Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio in January 2020 and features, among others, musicians like Roberto Tiranti and Giacomo Voli. While working on new material, the band leveraged new members’ ideas to write even more songs, and a new album is already written and in the early stage of production.
Lately, the band is also remixing and remastering “Back To Life” which is waiting for a new release, scheduled for the 10-year anniversary of the album in 2021.
“Back To Life” has everything and more when it comes to a solid power metal album. The songs flow together smoothly and are well balanced between reckless guitar solos and stunning piano work. Also, the vocals were most impressive. This is definitely an album that you will want to check out. – Sorrow Eternal – 9/10
“From The Depth managed to stand out thanks to their quality and exciting work, which knows how to identify itself among the overwhelmed Italian scene” – Metalitalia.com – 7/10
“Finally! Finally some good Italian power metal, produced with all the trimmings, played with all the trimming and sung with all the trimmings! After too many negatives reviews by Italian bands From The Depth wipe out any doubt on our land’s playing skills.” – Metal.it – 7,5/10
