Il Segno del Comando started in Genoa, Italy, in 1995 as a studio project. It released the first same titled LP one year later, on Black Widow Records. The main core of the band is to make an opera that recovers past aesthetic and sound atmospheres. The record gravitated around the well known novel written by Giuseppe D'Agata, who inspired both the band and the same named TV Series produced by Italian Radio and Television channel RAI in the seventies.
Musically speaking, the band use a jazz-rock-prog-dark-soundtrack approach that, despite its strongly distinctive nature is inspired by past artists such as Goblin, Jacula, Il Balletto di Bronzo amongst them.
After featuring in several compilations, ISDC releases a full length "Der Golem" (BWR - 2001). Unlike their previous release, this album will feature sounds of Middle European origin as well as finely experimental atmospheres.
Lyric wise, the main concept is inspired by the esoteric novel "Der Golem" of Gustav Meyrink.
The project remained inactive until 2010 when Diego Banchero and Black Widow rejoin forces with a new line up change: Diego took full charge after Mercy left to follow different company and directions. ISDC took part of a tribute album dedicated to the band Pierrot Lunaire released by MP Records and went back to studio to write the new album afterwards.
The new album "Il Volto Verde" (The green face" is inspired by the same titled novel by Gustav Meyrink once again.
Il Segno del Comando had their first video released "Chidher il Verde" and is now performing gigs, beginning in 2015.
