About “Coscienza Cibernetica”
The song captures the essence of our current millennium, portraying a modern individual as a stark reminder of humanity’s gradual slide into dehumanization. In this narrative, the protagonist—central to both the song and the accompanying book—feels “sottomesso” (subjugated) and “prigioniero” (imprisoned) by an “electronic conscience,” symbolizing a life constrained and marginalized by technology.

Through the song’s journey, we explore the deep suffering and isolating nature of this technological solitude. It highlights the façade of “knowledge” that hides behind screens, often presenting a reality that is distorted or non-existent. As the song progresses, it culminates in a powerful cry asserting that humanity is, and will always be, “figlio della terra” (children of the earth). This declaration resonates with the overarching themes of the concept album “A mezz’aria sul tempo,” where the compositions traverse the realms of Head and Heart, Man and Earth, and Nature and Humanity.

We wish you a good journey and happy listening.
Thanks, Overture.

According to Kscope:
The Radicant’s debut EP, We Ascend, showcases the adept musicianship and expressive voice that Vincent Cavanagh honed over 11 albums with the legendary alt-rock band Anathema. This year, Cavanagh will share his first music under The Radicant moniker with the highly anticipated debut EP We Ascend. The EP’s influences span a wide sonic spectrum, from the propulsive drum and bass rhythms of lead single ‘Zero Blue’ to the cinematic electronica on ‘Stowaway’, the EP’s second single.

The Radicant embodies Vincent Cavanagh’s artistic philosophy. Inspired by a term used in botany and by art curator Nicolas Bourriaud, “radicant” describes organisms that create their roots gradually as they advance, allowing species to mobilize, adapt, and grow on any surface.

Vincent Cavanagh is currently in the studio working on his debut album as The Radicant, set for release next year.”

Charcoal Grace is the 6th studio album of the band, and it combines raw rock power with immense emotional depth. Charcoal Grace is borne of the static hopelessness that the pandemic forced upon the band and, indeed, much of the world, these past few years. It is an album reckoning with the experiences and outcomes of this time geared, ultimately, towards catharsis – moving towards a more hopeful future.

“Caligula’s Horse expand upon their palette and vision with an admirable confidence
and clarity of purpose” – Prog Magazine

“Whether you’re a returning follower or a newcomer, you’ll surely find Charcoal Grace to be a deeply impressive and thoughtful journey from one of today’s greatest genre torchbearers.” – Metal Injection


Caligula’s Horse are:

Jim Grey – lead vocals
Sam Vallen – lead guitar
Josh Griffin – drums
Dale Prinsse – bass
