RanestRane the Band


RanestRane are an Italian progressive rock band formed in Rome in 1998.

Their speciality is writing concept albums which take inspiration from art films such as "Nosferatu the Vampyre" by W. Herzog and "The Shining" by Stanley Kubrick. The band composes a new musical soundtrack closely following the scenes of the movie, and the result has been called "Cine-concert”, making their live shows a quite unique experience.

In 2012, the band performed with Steve Rothery during the annual “The Web Italy” Convention on a couple of classics from Marillion’s catalogue. This occasion gave birth to the idea of a musical collaboration for Ranestrane’s new album which is based on Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Steve Rothery contributes solo and atmospheric guitars on the tracks Materna Luna and Monolith (Part two). Steve Hogarth also joined the project writing both lyrics and vocal melodies for the songs Mementoes and Cenotaph.

In November 2013, RanestRane released “A Space Odyssey - part one – Monolith”, with a special guest appearances by Steven Rothery and Steve Hogarth. This is the first part of a trilogy. 

On February 5 2015 they released on DVD&CD the new LIVE ALBUM "Monolith in Rome - A Space Odyssey Live", filmed and recorded in Rome at Crossroads Live Club, featuring Steve Rothery.
