2005 After the release of the album the band started touring Italy and Mexico
Macbeth was born as group of players of the arcane darkness. They debuted with "Romantic Tragedy's Crescendo" after releasing a very successful demo tape called "Nocturnal Embrace". They got some very good feedback with their debut album “Romantic Tragedy’s Crescendo”, with great reviews everywhere. The band supported Amorphis during their Tuonela Tour dates in Italy. After these important live dates the band went through some painful line-up changes that lead to the change of both singers and bass player. With a new line-up, Macbeth entered the studio to work on their second album “Vanitas”. The album shows a more aggressive approach, without losing the romantic side of the band’s style. Macbeth becomes one of the leading bands of the Italian gothic metal scene. “Vanitas” is a theatrical and violent opera in 10 acts, a masterpiece of gotich symphonic metal plunged in melancholy with the perfect fusion of power and atmosphere. Macbeth’s music is more diabolically charming than ever and it becomes the harmonic torment of your sleepless nights.
Macbeth came back with "Malae Artes." After a few years of silence the band presents their best and more mature album ever.With a new and stronger line-up, consolidated by many gigs, Macbeth have recorded 10 fantastic tracks with catchy melodies and diabolic charm. Macbeth has developed its style, putting more and more emphasis on the theatrical atmosphere of the whole album but keeping the songs catchy and powerful. Songs like "Lifelong Hope," "Henceforth," "Down-Hearted" and "Miss Murderess" have solid and heavy rhythms with irresistible performances by singers Andreas and Morena and a more modern and direct sound and production. With this new attitude, the band has covered the song “How Can Heaven Love Me” by English New Age/Operatic diva Sarah Brightman. The album is enriched by an elegant and charming art-work in a digipak packaging, following the tradition of previous album.“Malae Artes” is the definitive consecration of the band as one of the best example of modern Gothic Metal.
