Goldenseed is the solo project of the Italian multi-instrumentalist and composer Gabriele Pala.

The project started back in 1999 with the intent to recycle the songs that the bands in which Gabriele was playing were scrapping during their rehearsals. During this process, he realized that something new and intriguing may eventually happen. So, starting from the fragments of the abandoned tunes he started writing the first Goldenseed album, entitled "Creatures Of The Sea". At that time the use of technology in music was at its first steps, but nevertheless he managed to create complex arrangements and complicated guitar textures.

Since then, Goldenseed has always been Gabriele's personal project and a way to channel all of his musical influences that were not suitable for band made of humans.

The genre proposed remains in the field of extreme metal, but spanning from brutal grindcore moments to jazzy and classical orchestrations, to odd meters stuff and guitar shredding episodes.

Gabriele writes all music and lyrics and plays all instruments by himself: guitars, bass, keyboards and vocals.

Four albums are made so far, with the hope that they can be listened as much as possibile through the internet and appreciated by open minded people.
