Italian metallers Secret Rule announce a new concept album inspired by Neil Gaiman’s comic book “The Sandman”. It’s called “The 7 Endless” and is scheduled for release on January 25. Read more details below.
The album is based on the characters created by an English author Neil Gaiman for his comic book series titled “The Sandman”, the band’s vocalist Angela Di Vincenzo being the one who came up with the idea of the 7 Endless concept. But who exactly are the 7 Endless? It’s Dream, Death, Destiny, Desire, Destruction, Delirium and Desperation who will guide the listener through this musical journey.
“About the sound, it’s definitely more aggressive and full of different shades and feelings. It will bring you through a hurricane of sensations and it will seem like you’ve lived something real,” says the band.
Album’s artwork was created by Simona Speedy Saccoccia. The band comments: “The artwork is the third way of taking the hand of the listeners and going along with them through the story. We also wanted to make the visual imagery more about the music, increase the perceptions, and the visual representation of the songs. This artwork completes our vision of taking you on a real journey.”
