Dante’s Inferno Part I
 will begin a series of solo albums dedicated to the poetry of Dante Alighieri. Unlike other albums based on Dante’s Inferno, this album goes in-depth into each canto. The album is over 70 minutes long with eight intense songs (No fillers). This is a progressive metal album that drops the boundaries between all genres. Every track takes on its own direction with an all-star musical cast of internationally well-known musicians. Also included for each song will be a work from a well-established visual artist. This is a heavy metal soundscape as you read the first eight cantos of The Inferno.

Metal Assault Records will release Dante’s Inferno Part I in Fall 2021 on deluxe digipack CD and digital platforms. More details surrounding the release, including the cover art, track listing, lineup of guest musicians, exact release date, pre-order launch date, and first music premiere, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
