PENTESILEA ROAD – Noble Art (feat. Ray Alder)

“Pentesilea Road” is a post-progressive rock band, originally formed as a one-man solo project of the Italian guitarist Vito F. Mainolfi in 2014.Until 2019, the band published several demos, mostly instrumental, over SoundCloud and BandCamp.

The first full-length album “Pentesilea Road” was released on February, the 26th 2021. The band’s name is a reference to Pentesilea, the diluted city described in Italo Calvino’s book “Invisible Cities”.

The album was recorded as a long-distance collaboration of several musicians, each one recording in the Country of residence, due to COVID-19 pandemic (Guitars/Bass recorded in the Netherlands, Vocals in Italy and Spain, Keys in Italy, Drums in Italy and USA).

The musical style is a contamination of a few genres, including clear influences from the Progressive, Post-Rock and Metal areas.

The album that has been published is self-produced, the band is independent and unsigned and was initially released only in digital version (the first physical batch was ready by release date).
