DISTANT PAST picture
Distant Past is the brainchild of Adriano Troiano. After leaving “Emerald” in 2001, he formed his own group “Evil Eye” the same year. The group featured Alain Curty on guitar and Kaspar Zwirner on drums, two of his school friends. After being disappointed by the direction the band was taking, Troiano opted to drop out his own group, to concentrate on a Studio project, which eventually became Distant Past.

Setting up a studio at his home he contacted a few friends to make his first recording experiences. The fist Album “Science Reality” was finished in 2003.

Right after the completion of this album, Troiano immediately started to work on the follow-up “Extraordinary Indication of unnatural Perception” which was released as a retail CD in 2005. Guest featured Christoph Schafer on guitars (who also worked on the first album) and new singer Reto Guggisberg, next to Zwirner and Curty. The brothers Michael

The current version of Distant Past, the Swiss mystery-themed Heavy Rock/Metal band founded by A.Troiano (Emerald), now features former Emerald lead singer/guitarist Jvo Julmy on vocals, and this partnership is working very well indeed as the guys are really blasting out on this the fourth album under the Distant Past name. This is all about melodic Power Metal, with loads of balls and class shining through from the first note to the very last. It is passionate, it is powerful, and overall it is just great fun. True, there are times when the vocals aren’t quite true, and it would certainly help the overall feel if there was an anthem or two contained in the material, but overall this is an album that any metalhead will feel obliged to listen to all the way through, and then put it on again, only a little louder maybe.

The overall result is something that is knocking on the door of being something quite special, but probably not knocking quite hard enough. It is definitely much better than a lot of the metal I get to hear, but isn’t quite elevated enough to lift itself into the stratosphere. I would be intrigued to see these guys in concert and see what they are like live, and certainly look forward to the next album to see how they have moved from here, but the feeling that while they have the potential to be a quite stunning act, they aren’t quite there yet.
