This year marks the 20th anniversary since Turin-based instrumental trio STEARICA began to play together. Yes, they met as kids in school! Their many years of friendship and musical collaboration have allowed them to develop their almost-telepathic tightness onstage, in which they seem to play as one three-headed beast.
To mark the occasion, they have undertaken a single-track musical odyssey of 20 minutes and 20 seconds duration. It encapsulates the passion of 20 years of playing together and their shared love of combining primordial rhythms and infectious melodies with avant-garde stylings.
Produced by band member Francesco Carlucci, 20YRS features guest appearances by Eros Giuggia on alto and soprano sax and Franz Goria from Fluxus on vocals.

Vermilia is a female artist from Finland who has just unveiled her first self-released single “Vedestä Vieraantunut”. She has created a unique Scandinavian pagan metal sound with impressive and pleasant vocal harmonies to create a nice balance of dark and light.
The song features incredibly beautiful melodic vocals sung in her native Finnish language, which are enthralling and with fierce growls, in contrast, it gives it a great mix of metal and harmony. It possesses a hard groove through the instrumentation and is highly atmospheric, intriguing and delightfully dark. This is captivating and soaring, leaving you very hungry to hear more depthful pagan inspired sounds, so hopefully, a debut offering is on the way soon.
“Vedestä Vieraantunut” was officially released on November 13th as a self-released single and is available for sale/streaming through all major platforms.
