Incoming! Vicolo Inferno


VICOLO INFERNO, one of the latest signings for Rockshots Records roster is proud to release their third studio album "Circles" today. Instinctive, energetic, melodic, dark, and intense, "Circles" is the quartet's most mature and experimental recording to date.

"Circles" like its predecessor dances among various colors of the soul, from the most intimate and convoluted to the angry, to the amused and ironic. The track listing was chosen to guide the listener through a journey. The writing process for this record has been consolidated for years, although somewhat against the current.

"We are "romantic supporters" of songwriting in the rehearsal room. We always start from a vocal line or a guitar riff, and if there is inspiration, the first version is laid down, which is then refined and shaped over time like a piece of wood by a sculptor." says the band. "It is said that the third album is canonically the one of awareness; it is certainly the one in which we put more care into arranging the songs, where we experimented with some stylistic figures never used by us before, both in music and in singing. For once, we would like to venture to say that we think it is our best album (although it is always difficult to say which child you love most) for ideas and execution, but as always, the hope is to reach the audience, which will be the judge in deciding whether our feelings hit the mark or not."

The band describes this new single "Suspended" as a social critique stating that "The attention span of society for any content or experience is just a few seconds but our stories are too complex to be summarized in a few words."

In 1504, an alley in "Forum Cornelii" (Imola, Bologna, Italy) wrote its history in blood: a bloody battle left its mark on the popular imagination and forever transformed the name of that narrow cobblestone path into "VICOLO INFERNO".

In 2003, the encounter of the two founding members of the band Igor and Marco led shortly after to the release of their first demo "FIRE COVERZ."

By 2005, the desire to propose original music production began to emerge, and the first 4 songs were collected in the EP demo "HELL'S ALLEY."

The following years were marked by intense live activity, band contests, and recognitions.

In 2013, the band signed a contract with logic(il)logic Records for the release of their debut album "HOURGLASS." Live promotion lasted throughout the year, reaching England in March 2014 with 6 dates.

In 2016, with the addition of Wallace on bass, the band completed the composition and recording of their 2nd album "STRAY IDEALS," once again for logic IL logic Records.

Currently, the band, enriched by the new drummer Renzo Cuomo, has finished recording their 3rd album "CIRCLES," set to be released on May 31, 2024, for Rockshots Records.
