Naturally stoned (1968)
Avant-Garde are a Rome based band created in 1994 by Alessio Schiavi with the attitude to re-elaborate the classic dark-wave sound trying to make it actual without losing its original feeling.

The "Ascension of the gods" gothic festival in 1997 gave the band the chance to be more visible outside of the roman scene.

In 1998 the track "Morendo" was included in the "Intimations of immortality, vol. IV" compilation produced by the label Energeia (Italy).
