October 13th 2007

We can finally announce that the album has been completed! Soon we'll be posting short samples on our myspace page, as well as more information about the project.

Once again we'd like to thank all the people that supported and helped us in the difficult times we had to face. Self-production has been a difficult and long journey.

Our sincerest thanks go to Stefano Morabito for the care he put in the long mixing process, and last but not least special thanks to William J. Tsamis (Warlord) for his words.

August 25th 2007

As announced we'll be in the recording studio for the mixing of the record from the 30th of August. In the meanwhile we'd like to sincerely thank Giulia De Angelis for her contribution in the recording of the transverse flute parts.

Here you can find some photos from Giulia's the recording session:

July 13th 2007

We've finally completed all the recording sessions, so the mixing studio has been booked for the 30th of August.

We're sorry fot the writing of this work followed such a fractured and dilated schedule. Finding people with strong motivation and technical training fot the Dunwich project has proved to be very difficult.

The musical line of this new production follows the mood of the last two releases: 10 tracks, 4 of which completely acoustic, with the dark-medieval atmospheres that define our style. The track will feature english as well as italian lyrics.

Whoever was interested in distributing this record can contact us for more information.

May 18th 2007

We'd like to sincerely thank David Giacomini, a truly excellent musician, who recorded all the guitars of the forthcoing album. His contribution helped restore the right professional atmosphere to the project.

Our thanks also go to Valerio Galli, for his patience in recovering a work that seemed compromised.

Elayne, Claudio e Roberto

May 10th 2007

During the pre-mixing we decided to throw away the bass and drums sessions recorded in the previous studio sessions. Just as for the strings the sound was compromised. We've recorded a new drums and bass session, and we're finally satisfied with the results.

We're sorry for all these delays, but the errors made under our old label have caused us to be so late in our schedule. The mixing studio has been booked for the first part of June.

February 18th 2007

Thanks to the amazing skills shown by Francesca and our technician Valerio Galli we've finished recording the lead vocals, and we're very happy with the outcome. Now we're completing the recording of the backing vocals.

Unfortunately some of the material recorded in the previous sessions had some errors, also caused by bad management in our former recording studio. So we had to re-record some tracks: here are some pictures taken during the recording of the strings, directed with great professionalism by Roberto Fasciani.

Our thanks go to David Giacomini for work done on the guitars recordings.

By march we'll be in the mixing studio, so that the material for the new album should be ready by the endof march. We'll keep you updated!

November 14th 2006

The Madman seems to drift through existence following rational spurs, but under the surface he is irresponsible, reckless and passive. Instinct moves in the direction of the hearth. It may be the most uncommon, the most illogical, but it is surely the winning direction.

Following this excitement I announce that Dunwich is back in the studio, for the last recording sessions, the ones of the most representative instrument: Elayne's voice.

October 30th 2006


After a short stop in the project, caused by disagreements about its conclusion, we've rescinded the contract we signed for Powerzone Records.

If I were to express myself through my Major Arcana, my swords would tell the tale of the devil and the hanged man, where a providential tower, followed by the 7th arcana (the chariot) and the 17th arcana (the stars) would bring fresh, creative lymph to the mother earth and the stagnant waters. The smiling, yet stern and fixed face of Astrea, greek goddess of justice, would end this story.

The project is moving with renewed hearth and strenght towards the conclusion of the album. Again, I feel the urge to thank Elayne, Roberto, Luca and our graphic designer Martino for the great professional approach to the Dunwich project.

I want to avail myself of this occasion to thank also all the guest musicians that accompanied us in this journey, and in particular I would like to thank Costantino d'Aniello, Alessandra Corso and David Giacomini for their support and affection.

The graphic project will be led by Martino Palladini.

Thanks as always goes to all the people who have always supported us and that kept their faith in this project.
