La Menade was founded in Rome in 2000.
It’s an explosion of grace and rage, fall and rebirth. An original mix of metal, dark, electro and progressive,
embellished with a poetically intimate lyrical fabric.
Three albums released and an enthusiastic response from the public and trade press: the Ep “Conflitti e Sogni”
in 2005, for Load Up Records (with its more than 3,000 copies sold), 2007’s “Male di Luna,” proudly self-
produced, and “DisumanaMente” (Valery Records, 2014).
Countless live performances all over Italy, the first place at the first edition of the contest organized by the
Roma Rock Festival, a broadcast dedicated to the band on RaiUno, the participation in two movie soundtracks
and the national final of the W:O:A Metal Battle Italy in 2015: the girls impose their presence on the
underground scene, showing up themselves with a totally personal, recognizable and original songwriting,
accompanied by a high-impact live grip.
After years of waiting, and Chiara’s departure from the band, La Menade returns with a new album.
The soul of the band, Tatiana (vocals and guitar), Tanya (keyboards) and Laura (drums), meets the bass of
Luciana “Lux” Luccini and finally finds its voice again in “Reversum”: a fourth album about the destruction of
what was, a disillusioned look at the ruins of this world, where beauty no longer has any value and humanity
definitely disappears. The sound becomes darker and more enveloping, Italian gives way to English: a new,
different, deliberately experimental Menade.
Reversum, recorded, mixed and mastered by Fabio “Reeks” Recchia, has been released on September 8th 2023 via Time To Kill Records. The album has been preceded by the release of the video of the first single “Oblivion,” the result of a collaboration with the digital artist Igor Imhoff and by the lyric video of the second single “Alone”. On November 7th the band dropped the video of the song “Zero”, directed by Simone Serafini.
