irmin new


Edoardo, Irmin in art, was born on 11th November 1992. Since he was young, he has been fascinated by the world of music, thanks mainly to the influence of his parents who made him discover hard rock and metal music. Starting listening to bands like Queen, Genesis, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Rhapsody Of Fire, Blind Guardian, Nightwish and Korn, he soon moved to more extreme genres. At the age of 14, he was taken by his father to a Dark Tranquillity live show in Milan. He was immediately fascinated by Mikael Stanne's voice (and he's still now one of his biggest inspirations as singer) and decided to learn growl and scream vocal techniques. Some years later, he started taking singing lessons and started playing in some local bands as singer, doing covers of Death, Lamb Of God, Dark Tranquillity, Cradle Of Filth, Fear Factory, Carcass and Eluveitie. In 2012 he joined the newly formed gothic/death metal band Misteyes (with whom he still play now). This was his first serious musical experience as singer, which also took him on some important stages of Italy. In one of these live shows with Misteyes, he had the the chance to open for the local band Gotland. He remained in conctact with them and, when he saw they were searching for a new singer some months later, he immediately decided to propose himself! He officially joined Gotland as their new singer and frontman on July 2015. Aside from almost all the sub-genres of metal (from death to nu metal, from black to gothic and symphonic, from classic heavy metal to progressive/avantgarde and folk, but also industrial metal and deathcore), he also listen to celtic music, soundtracks, classical music and dubstep. Outside of music, he is fond of philosophy, history, mythology and literature (especially English and Italian literature). He is also keen on sci-fi novels and movies. Irmin uses a Shure Beta 58A microphone.

var new



Cristina, "Var" in art, was born in Turin on 29th April 1984. Her passion for music started when she was a child, thanks to an old school metalhead brother who introduced her to the listening of music since the times she was attending primary school. Music as a form of art and culture... Her first disks were those of Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and the great artists of that epoch. Growing up she developed love for that form of art which fascinated her so much. She decided to broaden her musical view by ranging among various styles, from metal to electronic passing through classical. In everything she was listening to there was however something that hit her, and one day she figured out that something was the sound of bass. Those low frequencies and those passages, sometimes hard and sometimes melodic, acted as a springboard to get close to that instrument. So, in 2005 her path as a musician started and it took definitive shape two years later with the birth of Gotland. Among her favourite bands are Pink Floyd, Arcturus, Opeth, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Battiato, De André, Bluvertigo, Subsonica... Instrumentation: - Warwick Corvette Proline 1994 4 strings - Cort Curbow 4 strings.

When he turned 18, two months later a friend presented him to Gotland metal band and then began this great collaboration! His favourite metal bands are Lamb of God, Pantera, Testament, Meshuggah, Judas Priest, to speak about the most famous and that have influenced most his life. To speak about his life, he is vegetarian, he likes philosophy, science, psychology, physics, history and he's studying all this stuff.
