Dr. Schafausen, alias Sergio Pagnacco, is an Italian bassist and composer, best known for being one of the founding members of the seminal metal band Vanexa. In 2009, he joined the power prog-metal band Labyrinth, playing all over the world sharing stages with Motorhead, Saxon, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and many more. His doctorate in audiology sciences and his profession as a university lecturer in subjects such as cochlear implants and pediatric deafness, also engages him in various seminars dedicated to hearing protection for musicians.
His new project can be defined as innovative. A dystopian and essential metal, sometimes chaotic and frenetic to better identify with the current society. Fear, anxiety and a negative future are well represented by this work, the first to identify with the term dystopian metal. Dr. Schafausen can be defined as a dystopian author because he speaks of an imaginary reality of the future with negative and predictable inclinations. Dystopias are often characterized by dehumanization, tyrannical governments, environmental disaster or other characteristics associated with a cataclysmic decline in society. Dystopian societies appear in many fictional works and artistic representations, particularly in stories set in the future.
