  • STONE HORNS Unleashes New Video "Grasping the Embers of Exile" Off New Album "Chimaira" Out Now!


    France's STONE HORNS unleashed their third studio album "Chimaira", this past January on Rockshots Records. Featuring seven groove-laden hell-bent tracks, the full-length tells the story of an odyssey of being rejected by all and thirsting for revenge. It explores life's thirst for recognition, whatever its form. Through its various acts, the story continues in different states, colors, and landscapes. A raw, merciless finality that leaves little room for breath in this torment of violence. We're all chasing a chimera, but isn't it the chimera that's chasing us? That's the question this album tries to answer, combining freshness and warmth, violence and peace, waves, and digressions.

    With their headbanging groove, this third studio offering "Chimaira" is a culmination of all the band's experiments to date. This is the band's most accomplished album to date, both in terms of composition and production. The band's long-time fans will be satisfied, but they also hope to bring in new fans with this record, with a slightly more modern production. Each track has its own universe on this full length, but it's also part of a whole, because like their previous albums, "Chimaira" is a concept album.

    "There's something for every metal taste and color. The aim of this album is for fans of every sub-genre of metal to be able to say to themselves at some point when listening to it: "I really like that beat". "Chimaira" is a bit like the child of "The Beast Inside" (2018) and "Rise of Apophis" (2021)". says the band.

    Today, the band is sharing their latest music video for "Grasping the Embers of Exile", the longest track on the album and in the entire Stone Horns' catalog. It is a brutal, hypnotic opening adventure that sets the tone for what's to come. Probably the most melodic and progressive track on the record, it's an ambitious composition reminiscent of some Machine Head pieces, punctuated by a magnificent solo.

    Recommended listening for fans of Machine Head, Devildriver, Slipknot, Lamb of God, and Jinjer, Stone Horns' third full-length is available from Rockshots Records on CD at and digitally at

  • Rockshots Records - VICOLO INFERNO Unleash Video "Suspended" Off Third Studio Album "Circles" Out Now!

    VICOLO INFERNO, one of the latest signings for Rockshots Records roster is proud to release their third studio album "Circles" today. Instinctive, energetic, melodic, dark, and intense, "Circles" is the quartet's most mature and experimental recording to date.

    "Circles" like its predecessor dances among various colors of the soul, from the most intimate and convoluted to the angry, to the amused and ironic. The track listing was chosen to guide the listener through a journey. The writing process for this record has been consolidated for years, although somewhat against the current.

    "We are "romantic supporters" of songwriting in the rehearsal room. We always start from a vocal line or a guitar riff, and if there is inspiration, the first version is laid down, which is then refined and shaped over time like a piece of wood by a sculptor." says the band. "It is said that the third album is canonically the one of awareness; it is certainly the one in which we put more care into arranging the songs, where we experimented with some stylistic figures never used by us before, both in music and in singing. For once, we would like to venture to say that we think it is our best album (although it is always difficult to say which child you love most) for ideas and execution, but as always, the hope is to reach the audience, which will be the judge in deciding whether our feelings hit the mark or not."

    The band describes this new single "Suspended" as a social critique stating that "The attention span of society for any content or experience is just a few seconds but our stories are too complex to be summarized in a few words." 

    Listen to "Suspended" at the following Link:

    Recommended for fans of Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, and Black Stone Cherry "Circles" is due out today and is available for digital platforms plus CD orders at the following links below:
