AROMA DI AMORE


AROMA DI AMORE

Aroma Di Amore is a group that made a trademark out of their biting and politically inspired lyrics. From the liner notes of the compilation album “Radikal”, published in 1993 : “Aroma di Amore have always been outsiders, even within the confinement of the alternative rock circuit. Their peculiar blend of raw guitars, electronics, Dutch lyrics and unconventional song structures was too hybrid for many. Those however who, without prejudice, would lend an ear to the band’s music, discovered an energetic, authentic and uncompromising collective that stood above al trends”.

The nucleus of the band consists of Elvis Peeters, the singer, (“who in an inimitable, possessed way delivered his highly original lyrics”) and Fred Angst on bass and later on guitars (“mastering the heaviest riffs as well as refined tapestries of sound”). The band was formed in Mechelen in 1981 with Andrea Smits on keyboards.

They came to the public eye during the final of the Rock Rally of 1982. Their minimalist new-wave was first released on vinyl with the debut single “Gorilla, dans de samba / Dobberman / Isabella Avondrood” of 1983, but it was only with the mini-album”Koude Oorlog” (Cold war) of 1984 that the band showed it’s full potential. It was received by Télé-Moustique as follows : “Aroma di Amore has chosen the cold war as the theme of their first album. It is right to speak of a somber battle : against the vain lightness of contemporary productions, the group launches seven icy missiles with mechanical rhythms, torturous bass, tormented voice and pointillist keyboards. All that with lyrics that are far from funny.” Ahem.
