Trick Or Treat Announces New Album

Italian power metal band Trick Or Treat, featuring Luca Turilli's Rhapsody frontman Alessandro Conti, revealed that the band's third album will be entitled "Rabbits' Hill, Pt. 1," and will be released this fall. The album is a concept album based the best selling book "Watership Down" by Richard Adams, which will be split over two albums.

The band's official announcement reads:

Here we are!!We can reveal all the secrets about the new Trickies’ album!!

We have waiting for so long to give even the slightest news because this is a very special album for us; it has more different sounds respect to the music we made in the past years. Indeed this not a 10 separated songs album like “Evil needs candy too” and “Tin Soldiers”. This time we have written a concept, every single song is related to the other creating a unique tale. In order to do this, we have worked hard, we can say the work of a lifetime, due to the fact that we have written some parts even before the end of “Evil needs candy too”. And not by chance we decided to release 2 albums before than this one; to acquire maturity in songwriting, in studio recording and in live performances, and then to be able to finish everything with the maximum perfection granted to us!! ;)

But stop chatting, how is this album titled?and what does it talks about?

The title of the album is “RABBITS’ HILL Part 1”

Why “Part 1”? Because the story is too long and the songs too many. So we decided, after some reflections, to divide the tale in 2 different parts.

The tale is taken from “WATERSHIP DOWN”, the bestseller of Richard Adams, a masterpiece of contemporary literature. An epic adventure that tells the story of a group of rabbits fleeing in search of freedom and a safe place to live. If you have not read it yet, we recommend.

Otherwise, listen to the album, due out this fall!
