Award-winning Italian producer, multi-instrumentalist, arranger, and re-mixer, NeroArgento will be releasing his sixth studio album "Land of Silence" via Rockshots Records on October 7th, 2022. In lead up to its release later this week, NeroArgento is sharing the single "The Nameless One" featuring Infernalizer.
"This was the first collaboration for the album. I've known Infernalizer for many years along with performing with him in The Silverblack and producing all his solo albums, so this collaboration came together very naturally. We worked on a super electro-industrial contaminated song, acid synths, cyberpunk atmospheres, and a lot of fxs. Enjoy!"
"Land of Silence" follows the success of 2020's “Circles”, which soared to #10 on the iTunes Top 200 Italy Rock Chart along with more than 1 million streams on Spotify. The new record is an explosive mixture of grunge rock, industrial metal, and electronic music, packed with orchestral influences and acid fuzzy sounds. It is also the most coherent album to date from NeroArgento's discography. It's a solid industrial foundation composed of unmistakable low-tuned guitar riffs and very heavy drum grooves, topped with electronics and synths ranging from the most acid electro to retro wave pop-friendly melodies, without forgetting the usual and distinctive vocal layers. With great attention to every aspect, "Land of Silence" is entirely performed, recorded, and mixed by NeroArgento.
The record was mastered by Brandon Ashley at D-Tuned in Brighton (UK) and features prominent guests such as Vicio (Subsonica) and Claudio Ravinale (Infernalizer). "Land Of Silence" will be released on October 7h, 2022, as Digital & CD Digipak, pre-sales: https://bit.ly/LandOfSilenceCD
"I’m super excited about 'Land of silence'. This is my most consistent album, and every track sounds distinct. I always loved to contaminate and mix a lot of genres together trying something new, but as my past album “Circles” shows with its results, keeping a strong line and working on that is the best choice. I’m super satisfied also because once again I did and played everything on my own. The album has super melodic and mainstream moments, but keeps the focus on that line, so this is an industrial cyber metal record, while in the past the only kind of music definition could be classified as 'crossover'."
As a producer/arranger NeroArgento has appeared on more than 50 records released worldwide and is endorsed by ESP guitars, ML sound Labs, and Mad Cat Amps.

As the release date for I Promised Once's Needful Things Records label debut, "Salvation," grows near, the band is ready for the world to hear their unique take on metalcore. Not afraid to take risks, I Promised Once is proud to premiere their single, "Break," that showcases their diversity and includes an element not often found in metal; rap.
While I Promised Once has used EDM as an influence in the past, the band wanted to experiment further with different genres and they knew that Blumio would be the perfect fit. Guitarist Nils shared the band's thoughts when writing the track, "We wanted to make it a collaboration with someone that fits our concept of “Borderless Metalcore”. Luckily, we knew just the right guy: Blumio. We first made the hip-hop beat/verse for Blumio, and then constructed the rest of the song around it with our signature riffing & a huge breakdown. The rhythm of the song goes a bit into nu-metal territory and is reminiscent of old classics like Limp Bizkit & Korn."
Lyrically, I Promised Once to create a song to empower listeners to stand up for themselves no matter what life throws at them. Nils explained, "There will always be people talking behind your back who will try to put you down and will try to stop you from achieving your dreams."
"Salvation" will be out on 2/23 and pre-orders of the record are available now on Merchbucket. The band had one last piece of advice for listeners that are experiencing people trying to tear them down, "Remember, those people have no power over what destiny you are creating for yourself, so give them the middle finger and keep going your own way!"
