Chains of Poets

Copyright Controlled formed in May 2012 with baritone player Marco Rosati, guitar players Jonathan Mennucci and Nico Coletti, and drummer Matteo Berni. Jonathan, Nico and Marco spent some time writing and rehearsing their songs, then went to Matteo to add the drum parts. They wanted to play a genre that took the heritage of '90s grunge music but would expand into more modern rock/metal territories. The result is a fuzzed-out, psyched and progressive noise rock full of odd times, dissonant chords and lots of harmonics. Such music also presents influences from '70s prog rock, drum'n'bass and speed metal. They are also recording their debut EP "Don't Hurt Yourself", and Marco, being also a film director, is planning the concept for the album art. They had a date with grindcore band Rum-Ore and prog band Blemma. At their moment they are rehearsing for some summer dates. Copyright Controlled played a hidden show on September, 6th 2013, without Jonathan, the guitar player, who wasn't in the city at that moment. Then they played in a contest called Genetic Parade, in Pontasserchio, together with other rock and rap acts. They were out of the competition because they had signed too late, but they were able to play because Jonathan, the guitarist, happens to be the nephew of the organizer of said festival. At the moment they are recording their second album, "Forbidden". Copyright Controlled have changed name in Chains of Poets in 2014
