Dagos

A 10 track alt metal album (37m 41s) — released November 22nd 2019 on Milky Bomb Records

Milky Bomb Records presents...

Dagos - the debut album by Skull Above the Cannon.

Since the release of the single Pigmen in Sept. 2019, SATC have earned radio in the UK, USA and Canada. Including a premiere of the video with Italian publication, Impatto Sorono, and video coverage in Australia.

The explosive mix of heavily distorted guitars, imposing bass, and powerful drum lines alternate between rock driven bigg riffs, ferocious polyrhythmic sections and reflective breakdowns. On top of that, fresh melodic vocals which tend to a deeper, innermost anger, narrates the myths, contradictions and frustrations of the Sicilian island (their place of origin). The addition of traditional folk instruments emphasizes the clash between local cultures and globalization.

The alternative metal trio - with their progressive and stoner rock influences, reintroduce the origins of prog-metal, '90's stoner and punk...

Band influences: Tool, Uzeda, and Melvins.

- The title of the album refers to the derogatory term used by the Americans at the end of the nineteenth century for immigrants of Latin origin. This term today takes on a new symbolic and provocative meaning: the current historical situation sees the widespread migration of individuals and populations, in which the "essentials" of local traditions and cultures clash with the "universal" nature of the process of globalization.
