"DEFLORESCENS IAM ROBUR" Full-lenght Published by Beyond...Prod. in 1999 E.V. De-luxe golden carved leather digipack CD edition with 24 pages booklet. Limited to 1000 copies. A magniloquent Pagan soundtrack dedicated to the unforgivable decline of the Roman Pagan culture which embraces stylistically but synthetically a millennium of music (from the martial compositions of the Imperial Rome up to the late Renaissance), travelling over pure ambientalistic moments of Communion with the Great Mother. The work is matched with a rich full-color booklet which ideologically completes with pictures and words each of the twenty tracks of the album.

"DEFLORESCENS IAM ROBUR" [Collectors' Edition] Full-lenght Published by Beyond...Prod. in 2002 E.V. De-luxe Collectors' Edition with golden carved parchment cover and transparent jewel-box containing dried flowers, leaves, etc. Limited to 166 copies. After the album was sold-out, the label reprinted a special very limited handmade edition created just for the fans. Packaging has been conceived and directly printed by the Author (A.W.F. packagings): severe and sober artwork with a touch of "Dried Nature" inside, each time assembled in a different way, thanks to the characteristics of the filling material used.
"DATEMI PACE" Song, included in the double cd-sampler "Tutti a casa!" Published by Hau Rock! / SPQR in 2003 E.V. Standard jewel-box double CD with 24 pages glossy booklet Cover of the homonymous song by the Esoteric Industrial cult-combo Ain Soph. Respecting the original, Furvus proposed it with his peculiar majestic touch: manteining the Renaissance arrangements (just like the metrics of the Petrarca's lyrics), he introduced some Controcanto inserts and a choral dimension.
"ITER VNIVS DIEI" Song, included in the double cd-sampler "Audacia Imperat" Published by Old Europa Cafe / Misty Circle in 2004 E.V. Special A5 oversize booklet-packaging w/ 36 color pages Originally composed during 2001 and to be released through the (now R.i.p.) label Oktagön, the song has been preserved till now it has been published for the first time. Since I was not satisfied with the original arrangements, I totally re-arranged this new and unique version, undoubtedly more "pompous" and evocative, as the original concept had to express through its atmospheres full of oriental moods and occidental pride. The rich oversize booklet contains an A5 illustration very fit to the martial idea of the song.
"EVROPA" Song, included in the cd-set which celebrates the 25th OEC anniversary. Published by Old Europa Cafe in 2008 E.V. Glossy cardboard box with 7 CDs + 16-pages booklet. To celebrate the label and all the work done over all those years 101 artists which have been involved with OEC was invited to submit an unreleased or anyway re-worked / exclusive track devoted to the theme of Europe, so I thought of working on lyrics extrapolated from the homonym myth Ovidio talked about in his masterpiece "Metamorphoses".
Originally released in 1999 and for years sold-out, this remastered reissue is enriched by a totally re-newed and new artwork + extra contents here presented for the first time (lyrics, exegesis, curiosities, etc) which painstakingly consigns what is unanimously considered a little Neo-Classical jewel of the last decade.

What the time doesn’t erase, is strengthened in the memory: the memory of loved ones, of lost faith and the blood shed which is now outlined through this journey inside the music and moral heritage of the past, going beyond the Pillars of Hercules of any religious or political belief. From theophany to solipsism, the wayfarer’s catharsis takes shape across the project's sound textures, epic and introspective as yesterday, but today also tinged with shades ranging from conviviality to more majestic chorality. All made with a balanced use of computer (each vocal part and acoustic instrument is sung / played by the musician) on a substrate of Concrete processing. A sound katabasis down to the hell of one’s emotional intelligence with an obol perhaps too expensive to be paid ... The new opus signed by Furvus is now out, after a long pause during which the project has been kept alive through exclusive songs recorded for international samplers and the composition of an album (Veluti Peregrinus in Antiquitatis Memoriis) which unfortunately has been lost, apart from a demo recordings + some raw material.
