SIGNUM DRACONIS To Release Metal Opera of Inferno, From The Divine Comedy by Dante
On Italy's National Dante Day, March 25th, and in the year marking the 700th anniversary of the death of Italian poet, writer, and philosopher Dante Alighieri, Rockshots Records announce they will be presenting later in 2021, SIGNUM DRACONIS' Heavy Metal opera of Inferno, from The Divine Comedy written by Dante Alighieri.
Featuring 17 songs by the band all sung in English, the double album is the first in a triptych of the complete work of Dante's magnum opus with Purgatory and Paradise to follow, and will also feature duets with selected special guest vocalists, narrations of selected chants, and an orchestral accompaniment by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra and Choir.
Signum Draconis takes their name from the medieval knights 'Order of the Dragon', and has opted for a classic 80s-influenced metal sound in homage to the rock and metal icons and aim to produce a truly musical, timeless and epic recording that will absorb and reward from repeated and dedicated listening.
