This record contains all that remains of the short lifespan of The Marchesa Casati. The band was created in 2010 by Lorelei and Maurini, two years after they first met at a party in The Steeple in Waregem, which was then the ultimate gathering place for goths in Belgium. Needless to say, this self-named cd - which originally appeared in 2011 - caused a stir in the small Belgian deathrock community. Shortly after the release of The Marchesa Casati, it was announced that the band was looking for a live-guitarist in order to play gigs. Xheviour enthusiastically applied and was subsequently integrated in the band. The Marchesa Casati started rehearsing and continued writing new material. Alas, the band only played three concerts and disbanded definitely after the last concert in November 2012. The last two songs recorded by them are added as a bonus to this cd. It certainly makes sense to think that The Marchesa Casati would have achieved great things if they had survived longer. Still, it was a short but very exiting experience for all those involved, and we are thankful to all those who enjoyed and still enjoy the music.
PS: Please consider that all songs were recorded at home with a computer. The sound quality cannot be compared to that of a regular cd. Still, we think it’s great that way.

The Marchesa Casati:
• Maurini: Voice, Lyrics
• Lorelei: Instruments, Lyrics
‘Thanks to everyone who trusted and supported us, all our friends and parents.’
‘Being different is a gift! People can laugh because you are different, because you look differently or think differently. Contrary to you, they are all too blind to see that they need someone to tell them what to think, do or wear. The societies think that because you are dressed in black, you are sad, but they definitely cannot understand that you do because of their spite, their silly way to think. Never change yourself; never submit to their whims, even for a job. You and we can turn on the light and erase the shadow. All together, we can change the world!’ - Lorelei
