Burning Gates in their words on this sumptuous Box (comprising 4 digipak CDs): “It was October 1995 when we set foot at Acqualuce Studio for the first time, never to leave again. We recorded all our releases there, all the way till we split up in 2001. All strictly analogue, on miles of tape and DAT masters. This is a tribute to a place, to a period of our lives. This is the essence of distant years, kept intact in Marco Milanesio's remastering, which managed to enrich it without altering it. These are the Acqualuce years!”
With "The Acqualuce Years", Swiss Dark Night collects and reintroduces the entire disco- graphy of the first period of Burning Gates'; existence (the years from the formation in 1995 to their temporary split in 2001) in one exclusive boxset.
The four CDs making up "The Acqualunce Years" boxset (named after the iconic recording studio where all those pieces of work were created) feature the debut demo tape "Nel Profondo", available in digital format for the first time EVER, and the first three CDs published by the band before their temporary split in 2001 ("Risvegli", "Aurora Borealis" and "Wounds"). The albums have been digitally remastered for this release, and are complemented by exclusive bonus tracks, consisting of old previously unreleased tracks, "live-in-studio", recordings and remixes - originally released on compilations in the 90s and deleted for ages.
