Italian dark metallers INNO – featuring current and former members of FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, HOUR OF PENANCE, THE FORESHADOWING and NOVEMBRE – are gearing up to release their debut full-length by the end of this month. As yet another preview of what is to come, they share a lyric video for ‘The Hangman’ in premiere right here:
‘The Hangman‘ is taken from INNO upcoming debut album “The Rain Under”, to be released on February 28th 2020 via Time To Kill Records.
“The Rain Under” was produced by the band and mixed by Marco Mastrobuono and Giuseppe Orlando in Rome. Mastering was handled by renowned Danish producer Jacob Hansen (KATATONIA, VOLBEAT, EPICA). Last but not least, the cover artwork was created by Decline Design.
“The Rain Under” tracklist:
02. The Hangman
03. Pale Dead Sky
04. The Last Sun
05. Night Falls
06. To Go Astray
10. High Hopes (Pink Floyd cover)
The first 75 copies of the album will come with a painting by frontgirl Elisabetta Marchetti. Each print (21×21 cm) will be hand numbered and signed by the band. Pre-orders are now available HERE.
The band comment:
“We want you guys to get to know INNO in its entirety and to truly experience what our new album is about. With ‘The Rain Under’ we’re telling a story about darkness, fear, nightmares and despair.
We thought that nothing would complete our music better than what our singer Elisabetta (who happens to express her visions drawing as well as singing) would come up with when we asked her to visualize the story behind the songs.
She went on and created an obscure and mournful picture, representing one of the concepts we based our writing on: sleep paralysis.
The result left us so chuffed, we decided to print a very limited amount of copies, hand number them and sign them, so that the first amazing fans who will preorder ‘The Rain Under’ will have this unique and powerful item to complement the trip through the songs”.
INNO have furthermore released a short album teaser, which can be viewed HERE.
Emerging out of the Roman metal scene in 2017, INNO was founded by four veterans with the aim to create something that would differ from their past experiences within the metal world.
After spending a few months exploring their dormant influences, INNO came to shape a dark, doomy, heavy and progressive sound akin to eclectic acts such as Katatonia and The Gathering.
