Rockshots Records will be releasing on November 12th, 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 CD 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.
Last month the first single “Gate of Hell (Arrival of Charon)” was shared and today, the band unveils their next track “Whirlwind of Lovers” with a new video in preview to the concept full-length,
“We arrived at Chant V of Hell, which for many people is the most beautiful chant of the entire Divine Comedy… Hell reserved for lovers. Dante in this chant invites us to reflect on how a false passion can lead to decadence and that it shouldn’t be confused with true love. Enter the scene our guest star the amazing soprano Ms. Ksenia Glonty who plays the character of ‘Francesca’. It is a theme with a somewhat more commercial style, with a tragic/romantic air in which both its intro and its outro suggest or share an almost gothic style, with an interesting first duel between keyboard and guitar in the solo part.” adds guitarist Oscar Grace.
