"They've created a mysterious, romantic, erotic world"- Rolling Stone.
A blend of classic rock attitude, vintage sound and a strong Italian sense of style have helped Italian quintet Belladonna to create an extraordinary brand of emotionally charged rock'n'roll. The singularity of this sound made Belladonna be the pioneers of the so-called rock noir.
Belladonna have worked independently since their first album “Metaphysical Attraction”, retaining artistic freedom and integrity. Despite being independent, the band has achieved much along the way: 2 Grammy Awards Ballot Nominations in 2008, support to Nine Inch Nails, Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Mars Volta, Staind and Korn and collaboration with the likes of composer Michael Nyman (who plays piano on their collaborative track) and producer Sylvia Massy (Tool). The band also played at the London Erotica exhibition with Dita Von Teese. True to their Italian roots the band has also started producing their own wine!
"Shooting Dice With God" is Belladonna’s fourth studio album and showcases a band at the height of their powers. From the driving grooves of first single “Karma Warrior” to the gentle acoustic leanings of “If I Was God”, from the gothic emotive “Aura Blues” to the 4/4 rock of “Ishtar Blues”.
Belladonna are set to release “Shooting Dice With God” in the UK on the 4th February 2014. The album will be distributed by Cargo.
