Exclusive premiere of the forthcoming THE BLACKTONES album ‘The Day We Shut Down The Sun’ via ‘Power of Metal.dk’

THE BLACKTONES “The Day We Shut Down The Sun” to be released on November 21, 2017 via Sliptrick records. Here is exclusive album premiere in full!

Band comments:

“The Day We Shut Down The Sun is an imaginary journey through “the end of existence”. Like a countdown, the experimental intros between songs are named like tarot cards. Each one represents the loss of a human feature, until the last card, The Fool, which represents the void.”

The Album Concept:

In it’s self, The Day We Shut Down The Sun is not a true concept, but every song represents a step by step journey to the losing of all the qualities of a human being. Following the tarots (starting with the pope, the fifth card) we represent the losing of faith, wisdom, genius, knowledge and finally, trough the Mage, we become the Fool, embracing the primordial chaos.


The Blacktones formed in Cagliari, Italy on March of 2011, The Blacktones started life as an instrumental band from an idea of Sergio Boi and Gianni Farci. The style of the band has been influenced by the Stoner/Grunge/Metal wave of the nineties and so on, with the addition of poly-rhythms. The ultimate sound of the band is dark and gloomy, with the insertion of granite-like riffs. The Blacktones have already released an EP and album in 2012 and 2015 respectively.

Current line-up:

Aaron Tolu [Vocals]

Sergio Boi [Guitar]

Paolo Mulas [Guitar]

Maurizio Mura [Drums]

Gianni Farci [Bass]
