In 1981, Italian guitar player Dario Mollo started his musical career with a band called Crossbones. The band gained experience around his home town, and reached the final round of an Italian rock competition.
The band were given concerts all across Italy, and were invited to play on the compilation album -Metallo Italia-. They shot a video to accompany the album at the Piper in Rome, and had some appearances in TV broadcasts on national networks.
In 1986, Dario met Kit Woolven, producer of many bands including, Thin Lizzy, Cradle of Filth, and UFO, and recorded a song for another compilation called -Italian Rock Invasion-. This was the beginning of a friendship that has lasted ever since, working on Dario´s first album in 1989, and culminating in his most recent works known as The Cage.
