Italian Neofolk: Foresta di Ferro
While Foresta di Ferro is not strictly an Italian project (Richard Leviathan of Ostara, who also participates in the project, is certainly no Italian...) there is no doubt that the driving force behind FdF is Como-based Marco Deplano. Which makes Foresta di Ferro ideal for our little series on Italian neofolk.
While Mr. Deplano is also the leather clad head honcho behind power electronics outfit Wertham, Foresta di Ferro have dabbled in many styles of post-industrial music, and released a small string of nice records. This little ditty is from their split double seven inch with Novy Svet, Bulli E Pupe, and Lord Bassington-Bassington, who owns all of Foresta di Ferro's other releases, was moved to venture onto Discogs.com to secure a copy of this release.
