ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Inner demons
I don’t fight them
I am on their side”


How many artists can claim to have single-handedly originated a musical genre? Italian quintet Belladonna are amongst that rare breed of bands whose absolute uniqueness enraptures and inspires countless followers and imitators all over the world.

Rock noir, that Belladonna extraordinary brand of emotionally-charged rock’n’roll melodrama utterly seduced those beautiful hordes of Music lovers sick'n'tired of being force-fed today’s computer-driven, fake-angst-ridden pseudo-rock down their ears.



Belladonna’s now-legendary self-produced debut “Metaphysical Attraction” resounded so deeply in rock fans’ collective consciousness that it not only turned the band almost overnight into one of the most loved unsigned bands in the world, but it even bestowed upon them the honor of 2 Grammy Awards 2008 ballot nominations, an unprecedented event for a DIY band.

Over 1.000.000 views on MySpace, magazines like Rolling Stone, Glamour, and GQ hailing them as the "next big thing” – one critic going as far as saying “If Belladonna was the band that kept playing as the Titanic sank, nobody would have left the damn ship” -, shows with Dita Von Teese at Erotica 07 in London, gigs with major acts like Scars On Broadway, and Siouxsie & the Banshees, performances at the Dubai International Film Festival, - but Belladonna remain unfazed.

“All that matters to us is the Music” explains Luana, the sultry, sensual, sonic-seducin’ Belladonna singer. “That magical moment when a song sends shivers down your spine, that’s what Belladonna is all about… that’s what we believe Music should be all about” adds guitarist Dani.

And their phenomenally spine-tingling follow-up album is indeed all about the Music.



Personally invited by alt-rock producer supreme Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down) to record their sophomore album in her awesome all-analog studio in California, USA, in a few weeks of incendiary sessions Belladonna have commited on tape 11 astounding rock noir Luana/Dani-penned songs that erupt from the speakers with stunning sheer sensual energy.

The record’s title itself - “The Noir Album” - betrays the classic status that this record has gained even before having been released: regal yet raging, with a rawness and honesty that perversely suits the heart-stirring beauty of the melodies and the metaphysical suggestions of the lyrics, “The Noir Album” will challenge Belladonna’s attempts to stay cult-size.

“Pyromantic, mysterotique, visionoir” are the words Luana coins to describe it and, paraphrasing the smashing album opener “Alchemical Romance”, she adds: “One day we stopped fighting our inner demons, and went on their side. And this Music just poured out.”

Sheer poetry in Noir
When Belladonna released their first CD it was met with terrific reviews and begged the question ' How do they follow that?' Well here it is and 'The Noir Album' does not disappoint. Slicker production thanks to Sylvia Massy, and eleven rocking songs in the familiar Noir style see Belladonna surpass their opening CD. The rhythm section that is Tam and Alex have really gelled and provide the backing for Alice's wonderful keyboards and the unique sound that is Dani's guitar work, and all that in support of Luana's haunting superb vocals. This is a true masterpiece, go buy it now!

Pure Brilliance.
If you close your eyes and put on your headphones, turn volume up and press play, you'll be amazed at the journey this CD will take you on.
Everyone knows the saying 'A picture paints a thousand words'...Well, just wait until this album paints a thousand pictures for you. Each and everyone combined to tell a story, a story that I'm sure everyone can relate to.

You will NEVER hear another band like Belladonna.

Emozioni in Noir...
Ammetto che avevo un certo timore sul fatto che il nuovo Cd dei Belladonna “The Noir Album” potesse calcare le orme dello “stupefacente” “Metaphysical Attraction” …… Questo timore è stato letteralmente “spazzato” via mano a mano che ascoltavo il nuovo album!!!! “The Noir Album” ti fa percorrere una strada piena di emozioni , emozioni diverse da canzone a canzone……!!! Particolarità dell’album è la sua “fluidità” che lascia libero l’animo di assaporare pienamente l’atmosfera Noir…!!! Una sola parola per descrivere “The Noir Album” :
da BRIVIDO……

Noir in its highest expression
Glamorous, magical, and mystifying. Belladonna surprises us all by being faithful to their own style in music and lyrics while creating a whole new masterpiece. Their unique sound is entwined in the perfect pattern of supernatural love, nostalgic memories, lives past, inner demons and angels, that walks us through their greyscale world: Noir in its highest expression.
