GUNASH was born in 2003 from an idea by singer/guitarist Ivano L. Zorgniotti and drummer/percussionist Danilo Abaldo alias “Pannico” as a cover band with different name and staff, little by little it tended towards an Alternative Rock influenced by punk, metal, post-grunge, stoner and prog (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Foo Fighters, Qotsa, Porcupine Tree, etc…).
At the end of 2005, Gunash published an homonymous album for the Italian Label New LM Records (Crotalo Edizioni Musicali) from Ravenna, which is followed by an activity of Live concerts and composing new original songs.
Since 2008 the line up has been consisted of singer/guitarist Ivano L. Zorgniotti who busies himself with figurative art too, of solid bassist Mauro Ippolito and of drummer/percussionist Danilo Abaldo alias “Pannico”. Occasionally, violoncellist Marco Allocco, experienced musician who played in the Pavarotti’s Orchestra, joins it.
In 2012 Gunash come again in Studio for the production of the second album, titled
"Same Old Nightmare", a concept album with 12 original songs and with the extraordinary contribution of the American musician RAMI JAFFEE, keyboardist of Foo Fighters, founder with Jacob Dylan of The Wallflowers and involved in recording projects winners of several Grammy Awards.
Rami recorded at his Fonogenic Studio in Los Angeles and his colorful Hammond B3 has enriched the sound of Gunash.
In 2014 the album "Same Old Nightmare" is published and distributed by the prestigious independent Record Label Go Down Records and then the Gunash begin the promotional tour "Same Old Nightmare Tour," during which the Gunash also participate at the “Home Festival” in Treviso, along with international artists in the line-up.
The band’s name is a pun between Ganesh (the Indian divinity with elephant head, god of knowledge and patron of letters and arts), Gunas, that are the four phases of the transforming matter for the Indian Alchemy and the fusion of the English words Gun and Ash; after all, a mix of spirituality and esotericism with the gloomy contradiction given by the two Anglo-Saxon terms, as to intend to show that every concept implies its opposite.
