Psychedelic Riffsters Zippo are an unflagging example of band. Since 2004 they lead the pack of the Italian Stoner Rock and Heavy Psych movement.Zippo have always been about the music, which is actually very hard to define as they include elements of Prog Rock, Psych, Stoner, Sludge, Doom, Noise and even Post-Metal. Zippo thrive on creating different sounds and challenging people to use their very heart and soul to fully experience the band’s musical vision.A winning philosophy has seen Zippo release three critically acclaimed albums: “Ode To Maximum” (Self-produced, 2006), “The Road To Knowledge” (Subsound Records, 2009), “Maktub” (Subsound Records, 2011).Album number four will be unleashed by Uk based Apocalyptic Witchcraft Recordings, scheduled for March 2016. The album will be entitled “After Us”, the very first album as a four piece band. A work that is heavy, thick and straightforward as never before. Mixed and Mastered at Sound of Sirens Studio (California, US) by Toshi Kasai, a man who is best known for his work with The Melvins, Tool, Shrinebuilder, and for having played with Porn (The Man Of), Altamont and Big Business.
There is one thing you can say about Zippo’s albums – They all sound different to each other. Zippo always push the boundaries of what is musically possible, which has seen them classed as one of Italy’s finest Heavy Rock bands currently out there. Zippo have played Live all over Europe to rapturous applause from fans and critics alike, being described as one of the coolest, loudest and dangerous bands you are ever likely to witness live.
Ceveo formed in 2009 in Linz / Austria.
With heavy usage of dynamics they create a unique combination of fragile and spheric tunes, progressive riffs, catchy drums and basslines.
A demo album was recorded and released in 2010 followed by the first album “Cocooning days” in 2012.
For the second studio album “Eunoia” the band decided to refrain from synthesizers and other studio experiments and released this authentical masterpiece in December 2014.
Ceveo already shared the stage with reputable bands like Get your gun (DK), Mutiny on the bounty (LUX), Defeater(US), Karma to Burn (US), Lis Er Stille (DK), The Samuel Jackson Five (NO), Valina (AT) or Doomina (AT).
