SCUTTERNASH BIOGRAPHY (2006) The idea of the 'Scutternash' project was born in 1996 from the vocalist Raff Ierace that after different musical and discographic experiences in Germany (band 'Strassenblitz') and in northern Italy (band 'Amplex 69') moves to Calabria. Here, together whit an old friend, the bass-guitarist Cosimo Manno, begins the search of musicians to recruit, like the guitarist Mike La Rizza (in 1998) and subsequently in 1999, the drummer Nazza Pisani (this old friend of infancy of Raff and Cosimo has different experiences in smaller groups). The four components succeed immediately in melting their different artistic and musical tendencies giving origin to a warm, modern and actual sound of Hard Rock. The notable artistic abilities of Raff, gifted with an intense and exciting voice that can be hot tempered, melodic and passionate to necessity, mixed whit the fresh compositiveness of the guitarist, brings a stylistic imprint to the birth of a very original, mature and involving sound that distinguishes the band. In 2000 they record first self-produced Demo 'Hypnotyzer' that subsequently brings at the end of 2001 to the realization of their first official album 'Real Fire', characterized by an explosive mixture, rich of immediate Riff and with exciting passages and loads of energy, immediately appreciated by the local public from which is formed a first team of fans that follow, sustain and promote the band. After the participation to different musical demonstrations around Italy, the group at the end of 2003 is forced to an interruption by the exit from the band of the bass-guitarist, for personal reasons (Manno will keep collaborating, to sustain and to support, even if from a distance the group). The three remaining components start searching for substitute able to amalgamate with the style created by the band, and after various auditions with local musicians, they succeed in engaging other two new components whit excellent technical qualities and with evident artistic composer potentialities. From 'Apocalypse' arrive Emanuele "Manny" Loielo at bass and Davide "Dave" Cusano at the rhythmic guitar (both old acquaintances and friends of the components of the group). In the beginning of 2005 the band, after having resolved some problems of logistic and organizational character, they begin a new and more binding adventure that brings them to realize at the end of the same year their second and more important work 'Resurrection Fever.'
