Do you want to join the dark side? – Introducing: Draconicon

The Italian dark-power metal band Draconicon released its debut single“Edge Of Power” back in February. The song itself was recorded at Miskatonic Recording Studio and Giuseppe Orlando’s Outersound Studio, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono at Kick Recording Studio in Rome. The official video was filmed at world-renowned film studios Cinecittà 3, by the filmmaker Francesco Di Giorgio and Simonluca Fraioli (director of photography). Here’s our interview with the founder & guitarist, Gennaro Cerra.

Beginnings:

Draconicon is born from the will to create something new with the own style of Alex, Grym, and Simon. Our intent is to play melodic power metal with aggressive, modern, and dark elements.

Behind the name:

Our name comes from the concept of the band, we represent the Genus Draconis, an ancient order who wants to rule the world. Do you want to join the dark side?

Inspiration:

The bands that inspired us are Kamelot, Powerwolf, Sabaton, Rhapsody, everything filtered for our alternative gothic dimension.

Everything that’s happened in our life is an inspiration for us, we like to talk about real situations, problems, and mental states in a different way, as we said filtering every theme according to our concept.

The first album is ready and very soon will be out a new single. Stay tuned for upcoming news about the album!

Teamwork:

Yes, we work together. Sometimes starting from a personal idea, but every song is created by us while lyrics, based on our instructions, are written by Ilaria Pisani.

COVID-19:

It changed everything, we had to approach our promotion in a different way and for sure, this pandemic situation created some difficulties also in the label searching phase. If you want to know how COVID-19 affected our music you just have to follow us!

Online concerts:

Sure! We’re evaluating online concerts, but at the moment as an independent band, we have a lot of work to do to prepare the album release. At the right time, we will make sure to organize something special for our fans.

Massive, melodic, dark, original, and modern.

Describe your music in five words!

Fun facts:

We think Alex Moth has recorded the world record of strings used in recording an album!
