Featured Artist // Federale

Gather 'round outlaws, ne'er-do-well's and drifters.  This music is for you.  

Federale writes orchestral ballads for the most intense of shoot outs in their own brand of spaghetti-western compositions.  Re-capturing the gritty, yet spacious atmosphere of the dusty old west, this band presents huge sonic soundscapes packed with dueling drums + guitars, trumpets, choirs and even melodic whistling to set a strong tone and vivid imagery.  Set down those copies of "A Fist Full of Dollars" and "Once Upon a Time in the West" and dig these new (and vintage) sounds...

The slow building intro of their song "The Ascent", feels like a scene out of a Sergio Leone film. This honorable and masculine composition is cinematic and climbs in intensity over time reaching a climax of horns and high pitched vocal choirs leading the way in this sombre tale.

"Road to Battle" starts off a with a steady pulse and gallops along in a classic and rebellious spirit.  In just 2:49 minutes, it feels like a journey into the foreboding and open desert country.  Electric guitar and organ are showcased in this instrumental that would make Ennio Morricone proud.

The big drums in "Fine" really shine through this anthemic piece. Both inspiring and upbeat, the epic whistling and brass section creates a powerful arrangement. All in all, this badass composition might just make you pick up smoking and horseback riding, just saying.
