“Ship Of Dead” is the first single and video from VULCANO’s upcoming new studio album, “Stone Orange”, to be released on Emanzipation Productions in early 2022. Guitarist Zhema Rodero comments about the song: “It’s a reference to drug users, addicteds that don’t realize they’re in the hold of the Ship of Dead. It’s a fair warning to those who still have discernment. I’ve approached this theme in our back-catalogue, since “The Man The Key The Best””.

Vulcano is a band that, by now, doesn’t need any introductions to any metal fan. It’s enough to say they got together in a middle of a turbulent socio-economical turmoil in Brazil, in 1982, in the city of Santos. Thus it’s a 40-year career, 13 studio albums, four live records, and two 7″ EPs, that just couldn’t be summed up in a few lines.
They were pioneers in Brazil and even in South America as a whole, putting in the most extreme metal stepping stone for bands that came after them and continue being formed. Their importance is also capital in the formation of the Norwegian second wave of black metal, with few of its key members citing the Brazilians as a direct influence.
“Stone Orange” is Vulcano’s 19th overall release in their career. How many bands can get to this mark and still be as relevant as the Brazilian extremists are today?
