DieSeele

The Italian darkwave outfit Ash Code stepped onto the stage of Death Disco club for the second time. Since their first visit here in Athens, the band from Naples has released two albums and many singles, so they returned with a much richer setlist this time. The trio took to the stage a bit after 11:00 and after a small intro they began with "Nite Rite" from their second album "Posthuman". The fairly new project that started out in 2014 by Alessandro Belluccio (voice, programming), Claudia Nottebella (synthesizers, voice) and Adriano Belluccio (bass VI), have managed in this short time to have a significant discography and make their own signature style. Moving in the likes of new wave, darkwave, cold wave and synth-pop styles.
 

They continued their set with some of their better known songs such as "Empty Room" and "Oblivion". But also, they played the b-side "Rivers" from their latest single "Icy Cold", sung by Claudia bringing a more atmospheric and feminine feel. In the center of their set they played their cover of The Sound’s classic "I Can’t Escape Myself". The pace of their set was well thought of, with the crowd getting more and more into them as the concert progressed and the more diehard fans started to dance. They ended with their fist single "Dry Your Eyes", which they dedicated to Panos Dread of Geheimnis Records who was the first person that gave them opportunity to release their debute single. After a small break and the cheering of the crowd they played another three songs as encore.
