Biography

Formed in 2007, Dropshard have reached over the years the attention of the international public devoted to Progressive Rock.

The sound of Dropshard roots in the 70s Prog and in the contemporary Prog/Alternative scene, creating an interesting and innovative contact point between these different genres.

Clean and basic sounds, mixed with the deep and expressive voice of frontman Enrico Scanu, are the hallmark of this band.

Dropshard have released three studio albums.

The first one, Anywhere But Home (distributed internationally by Sonic Vista Music, an English record label), came to life in 2011.

2014 is the year in which Dropshard achieved artistic maturity with the release of their second studio album, Silk (Sonic Vista Music), hailed by international critic and by the public.

Silk also ranks among the top 10 best Prog Metal/Rock albums in 2014 chart by the famous web portal progarchives.com.
