Traditional heavy metal band Ancillotti (Italy) in 2016 has a new album called Strike Back on Pure Steel Records. Strike Back follows the debut album from 2014 The Chain Goes On. Ancillotti is a traditional band for supporters of traditional metal and classic rock. The music is sing-along songs, uptempo rockers and melodies that are direct, with gritty vocals. Below is a new song.
OFFICIAL: More than two and a half years after the longplayer debut The Chain Goes On“ (also released through Pure Steel Records) the Italians ANCILLOTTI are back with their second output „Strike Back“. Formed by the ANCILLOTTI brothers Bud (Strana Officina) and Bid as well as son/nephew Brian ANCILLOTTI with the blood brother guitarist Ciano, the family business committed themselves to classical Heavy Metal. Melodic, yet modern produced, but also with a big Rock’n’Roll drive. On the – plus intro – eleven new tracks ANCILLOTTI offer everything in handmade Heavy Metal; no matter if emotional ballads (“Lonely Road”), the anthem "Fight" or banging midtempo tracks (“Life Is For Livin’”) or doublebass parts (“The Hunter”). Traditional Italian Steel is reborn!
Ancillotti is a new band that not only encompasses the history of Italian heavy metal but above all is a family formed by: Daniele "Bud" Ancillotti, long standing singer of the best known Italian Heavy Metal band Strana Officina as well as founder of Bud Tribe, his brother Sandro " Bid" Ancillotti bass player with Bud Tribe , Brian Ancillotti drummer with Rayden, J.R. and member of the historic band Shabby Trick and guitarist Luciano "Ciano" Toscani leader and founder of the internationally know band Listeria on the Italian hard & heavy scene for more than ten years playing concerts with international names such as Michael Schenker Group, Dokken, Anvil, Dokken, Iron Saviour and many others.
The monicker Ancillotti is the best expression of the concept of family, the band's name is in fact a tribute to Daniele and Sandro's father, Renzo Ancillotti who at the venerable age of 87 is still their number one fan always ready to support the passion of his sons and nephew for rock music, even following their concerts when possible!
After several shows in 2012 Ciano composes a good number of riffs and song ideas that are brought to various forms of completion by the band and then, in july of this year, Ancillotti enter Tartini Studios 5 in Italy with the producer Fausto Tinello, to record their first live promo cd called “Down this road together”. The music is dynamic and powerful with monstrous riffs that become big-time rock anthems such as “Legacy Of Rock", “Living For the Nightime", “Warriors” or passionate and emotive ballads such as “Sunrise”. Beyond the music, however, in the last year Ancillotti has become a real band, establishing a trust in one another that happens very rarely in the music world. The band now is ready for the next step, for the next tour and to enlarge their steadily increasing fanbase!
