BELLADONNA are a well-known Italian “Rock Noir” band from Rome. They have released three studio albums so far (“Metaphysical Attraction”, “The Noir Album”, “And There Was Light”) and this, “Shooting Dice With God” is their fourth. This platter is a good mix of melodic ideas and versatility, and is another step forward in their career.
“All Is Vanity”, the album opener, is a good and melancholic song that leads us to “Karma Warrior”, the first single. “Karma Warrior”, is a hard rock track with a very catchy chorus, and shows us the skills of Valentina De Iullis on piano. The third track, “Abduction”, is an intimate an interesting ballad on which the voice of Luana Caraffa draws beautiful landscapes. The singer is the main protagonist even in “If I Was God”, a delicate ballad that will take your breath away. After two beautiful ballads it is time to some good ol’ rock, and “Ishtar Blues” hits the spot with its convincing and groovy riff. You will probably enjoy “Wonderlust” for its tasteful, refined arrangement and the haunting mood. The hypnotic and Kashmir-ish riff of “In My Demon’s Name”, and its fantastic atmosphere, will conquer you from the first listen. This is probably one of the most interesting songs of this album. The eighth track, “Aura Blues”, presents to us the tasty guitar work of Dani Macchi in all its richness. This great bluesy mood is the proof of the versatility of this band. “Primal Dream”, one of the heaviest tracks of “Shooting Dice With God”, is a blast! An intricate structure, great dynamics, a delicious arrangement, interesting guitar work and the voice of Luana are the ingredients of this masterpiece. “Drama” and “epicness” are the best two words that I could use to describe a journey called “Multiverse Love”. This is probably my favourite track of the album. “I Set My Controls To Overdrive”, with its power and energy this leads us to the end of BELLADONNA‘S last opus.
In conclusion, “Shooting Dice With God” is probably one of most interesting rock/metal albums of 2013. You must have it! Belladonna prove again that they are one of the most important Italian bands out there, leading this movement at an international level. Well done, guys!!
