Gli Atroci

Gli Atroci

Formed in 1995 in Bologna, Gli Atroci ironize on heavy metal exasperating clichés and stereotypes both through texts both through musics. Even if their songs cannot be considered as cover, almost all contain quotations of most famous songs or are inspired by the typical sound of a specific metal band. The group look is inspired by Kiss or Lordi.

Gli Atroci, after two self-produced demos (La Capra Vagante in 1995 and L'era Del Metallo Bianco one year after) and numerous live performances all around Italy, released their first album in 1999 (Gli Atroci), co-produced by Freak Antoni. In 2004 the band released L'Armata Del Metallo with the collaboration of Pino Scotto. The third, and at the moment last, album Metallo O Morte was published in 2009.

On July 15, 2011, founder member and bass player of the band Oscar Bandiera, known with the pseudonym of "L'Orrendo Maniscalco", disappeared. The band decides to continue live activity, in memory of their missing friend, but no longer releasing new albums.
