Since the release of their debut album « Twilight in the Desert » in 2007, Roma-based rockersBLACK RAINBOWS have become one of the most essential acts in Europe’s heavy underground. As the spearhead of an entire movement of Italian bands, they have issued five full-lengths to date and are on the verge of releasing their sixth album in 2018, with founding guitarist/vocalist Gabriele Fiori and bassist Giuseppe Guglielmino welcoming new drummer Fillippo Ragazzoni on board for the first time.

From « Carmina Diablo » (2010), « Supermotherfuzzalicious » (2011), « Hawkdope » (2015) to their latest outing « Stellar Prophecy « (2016), the trio’s sound cohesively blends classic ‘90s-style stoner rock and deep-in-the-cosmos psychedelia, drawing on the best driven space rock to conjure a tripped-out vibe of their own. By bringing Ragazzoni on board, the riffs have gotten tighter and fuzzed out as ever, and two years after their last outing, BLACK RAINBOWS will enter 2018 truly refreshed and with a well-earned veteran status resulting from a track record of countless touring, festival appearances topped with their acclaimed on-stage energy.
