Mark your calendars, fellow metalheads, because "Pestilence" is set to drop on November 17th, 2023, via Inner Wound Recordings. Draconicon isn't new to the scene; their debut album, "Dark Side of Magic", introduced us to their world in 2021. It received rave reviews and even scored an impressive 87/100 in the prestigious Burrn! Magazine Japan.
But here's the real kicker: Since their debut, Draconicon has been on the warpath, playing live shows and festivals all across Italy. They've shared the stage with heavyweights like Rhapsody of Fire, Feuerschwanz, Haggard, Wind Rose, and Nanowar of Steel. These guys have the live chops to back up their metal prowess!
In spring 2023, Draconicon inked a deal with the Swedish label Inner Wound Recordings, setting the stage for "Pestilence". This album dives deep into the darkest corners of the human psyche, exploring themes of mental instability, pain, and sadness, all heavily influenced by the recent pandemic times.
But here's where it gets even more exciting: Draconicon enlisted the chaotic genius of Francesco Ferrini from Fleshgod Apocalypse to handle all the orchestral arrangements on the album. That means "Pestilence" is set to be darker and more intense than anything you've heard from Draconicon before.
The album was mixed and mastered by none other than Marco Mastrobuono (Hour of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Shores of Null) and Alessandro Mammola. The mind-blowing artwork was created by Dan Goldsworthy (Alestorm, Gloryhammer). With a lineup like this, you know you're in for a metal treat of epic proportions!
Draconicon's sound is a fusion of European-style power metal with influences ranging from extreme metal and metalcore to classical music. The result? A unique timbre that'll transport you straight into Draconicon's dark, epic world. If you're a fan of bands like Kamelot, Powerwolf, Sabaton, Gloryhammer, Orden Ogan, or Arion, then "Pestilence" should be on your must-listen list!
With "Pestilence" on the horizon and an impressive live show to boot, Draconicon is poised to conquer the metal world. Don't miss out on this metal powerhouse and their upcoming album. Follow Draconicon on their website and their social media channels for all the latest updates.
