The One Starving Day project started in the 1997, from a view of Pasquale
Foresti that, after previous experiences in some hardcore bands,
decided to take up a new artistic course.
In the beginning the One Starving Day were: Pasquale Foresti (vocals,
samples and bass) and Marco Milucci (guitar), which joined immediately
Francesco Gregoretti (drums). The attempt to find a new guitarist resolved
with Andrea Bocchetti (a long date friend), in 1999, and after another year,
Dario Foresti (synths, samples and vocals) completed the band.
Originally the band kept a definite musical line, that was characterized
by an extreme violent sonority.
Nowadays the attitude of One Starving Day
can be lad back to the hardcore one,
even if the musical
influences that can easily be found are multiple. Having their music described like an
hybrid between Neurosis and GSYBE!, O.S.D. put themselves as a multiform ensemble
opened to different music styles. The impact is definitely dark and claustrophobic,
but the long suites of the band alternates between hardcore basic structure,
"cosmic" openings and deep and calm intimacy.
Following their appearance in the compilation Emo Diaries 7 (Me Against The World) -
Deep Elm Records - in 2002 with the song Animus the first album Broken Wings
Lead Arms To The Sun has been released by Planaria Recordings in early 2006.
In their first full length O.S.D. condense great part of their influences in nearly
50 minutes of music creating a suggestive, warm, slow and inexorable magma,
amalgamating sounds differing from each other in order to obtain a complex and
mature emotional spectre, trying to be deep and of impact, but never pompous.
The band is preparing at the moment the material for the second album that will be recorded
in april and july 2007.
