The Masters of Power Metal and Shredder Impellitteri return with a new studio album Venom

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new Impellitteri studio album entitled Venom on April 17th in Europe and April 21st in North America.

With the release of the new album titled Venom, Impellitteri deliver a record filled with addictive and memorable riffs, guitar solos that feature Chris Impellitteri’s blistering shredding technique coupled with strong melody and taste. Rob Rock vocals are mesmerizing, melodic, and will make the listener sing along with each song long after the record is over. Lastly, the band boggles the mind with brutal drumming (featuring John Dette, ex-Testament, Slayer, etc) filled with speed and groove and beastly bass playing (courtesy of James Pulli) that supports Impellitteri’s sonic madness! The result is a record that excites and musically satisfy every Metal and Rock fan, and every musician around the world. To add to their quest, Impellitteri also wanted to create music that would take the listener on a musical journey thru different time periods of metal and rock.

Chris Impellitteri is heralded as one of the world’s greatest guitar shredders. He has won Best Rock Guitarist Awards on several magazines during the years for his guitar soloing. He is the first guitarist to be branded as the fastest guitarist in the world by the international media. Recently and without any promotion, Impellitteri was officially voted 2nd fastest guitarist in the world by Guitar One magazine; and Guitar World magazine recently listed Chris Impellitteri within their top 50 fastest guitarists of all time!

Chris Impellitteri formed Impellitteri in 1987, together with Rob Rock as vocalist. That year, they released an EP called the Black Album which was well-received, and Impellitteri went on to release the full-length album Stand In Line in 1988. As of today Impellitteri have released a total of 9 acclaimed studio albums and the new record Venom follows after 2009’s Wicked Maiden.

During the writing and recording of the new album Venom the band pushed the limitations of their artistic abilities in both performance and composition. All musical areas and ideas were explored with only the best recorded.
