Audio samples of the tracks that will appear on Showdown the forthcoming second album from Italian hard rockers VOODOO HIGHWAY, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. After the lucky outset of their first album “Broken Uncle’s Inn” back in 2011, the band is ready to strike the world with a massive amount of rock n’ roll once again.
The CD was produced/mixed by Italian producer team Dysfunction Productions (Anthony Phillips, John Wetton, Logan Mader, etc.) and mastered by US senior mastering engineer Ue Nastasi (Gojira, AC/DC, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc.) from Sterling Sound Studios. The album artwork for the effort feature the hand of UK graphic designer Mr. Storm Thorgerson, who has previously worked with Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Dream Theater, Audioslave, among many others.
The band comments, “Please pump up the volume to the top and enjoy this taste of rock n’ roll!”
Voodoo Highway is a powerful new quintet featuring Federico Di Marco (vocals), Filippo Cavallini (bass), Matteo Bizzarri (guitars). Alessandro Duò (keys) and Vincenzo Zairo (drums).
Have been indicated as one of the new revelations worldwide and defined as “the new Deep Purple” from such a big name in music as the former Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Gary Moore bassist Craig Gruber.
Now known to most for the outrageous stage presence, crashing executions, a style that hovers between Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow and The Darkness and for the now obsolete (but very cool) custom of smashing instruments on stage, Voodoo Highway are becoming a cult in their murky underground territory.
The Voodoo has already infected Europe, South America, USA and Japan on radio and it’s actually blasting Italy with some of the most outrageous and long time no seen concerts ever.
The year 2012 will see Voodoo Highway marching straight to Hell!
