Squonk Opera is one of America's most innovative and long-standing multimedia theater troupes. This is the soundtrack to their 2002 show "Inferno," a hallucinatory and comic theatrical interpretation of Dante's epic. A rock opera like no other, you can hear the influences of Philip Glass, Muse, Radiohead, but ultimately the emotional sweeps and atmosphere created are unique. Driving piano, accordion and soaring vocals are the signature sounds.
"As an album, Inferno is successful on just about any level you'd like to look at… maddening stereo sound collections augmenting a psych-ward repetitive piano roll …accordion-led electro."
"Old as Dante, New as MTV"
