After a six-year hiatus since their last album "The Law of Purity," RHINO is back, and they are here to redefine the very essence of heavy, monolithic music. The band is thrilled to announce the release of their latest full-length album, "Human Farm," marking a triumphant return to the music scene. The band is once again partnering with Argonauta Records, and the band extends their heartfelt gratitude for their continued support.

In the interim, the world has undergone transformative changes, and RHINO has evolved alongside it. Despite the shifts, their dedication to colossal riffs, a myriad of fuzz, and the desertic and psychedelic atmospheres remains unwavering. "Human Farm" is a testament to their commitment to sonic exploration and pushing the boundaries of musical intensity.

RHINO is pleased to unveil "Agony & Madness," the first single from the upcoming album.
Band comments:

"We are proud to announce Agony & Madness, the first excerpt from our upcoming album Human Farm, due in early 2024 through Argonauta Records. We are going to take you to a ride through the desert like no other: an oneiric trip in the company of Agony and Madness, driving at breakneck speed to nowhere. Like jackals on a carcass we wait for their arrival. Everyone is looking for their moment of agony and madness. The dawn on the horizon brings the hope to reduce the pain for our mistakes and make us sane again, letting us find our way home. The ride continues, speed does not diminish and Agony and Madness are still with us.

We really want to thank Argonauta Records for welcoming us again and a special thank goes also to Saverio Autellitano, who made this lyrics video. We are eager to share with you all the rest of Human Farm: it’s gonna be an unforgettable ride.

RHINO's "Human Farm" is set to be unleashed in early 2024 through Argonauta Records. Brace yourselves for a journey through monolithic soundscapes and desertic landscapes as RHINO redefines the very essence of heavy music.

Rhino is a heavy stoner rock band rising from the sulphuric city of Catania, on the slopes of the Etna volcano, where the five members play a mix of stoner/desert rock from the ’90s and 2000 blended with the deep psychedelia of the ’70, resolving in an attitude built around a riff-driven composition, a megalithic wall of fuzz and tons of watts. Rhino was born in 2012 by an idea of the bassist Frank The Door and the guitarist Red Frank, briefly joined afterward by the drummer Lord J. Frank. Following the guitarist Francesco Cucinotta opting out of the band, the lineup was completed by Frank the Doc on vocal duties and Frank Real Tube on guitar. 

The lineup stood the same since then. Since their beginning, Rhino stand out for their extensive live activities through Italy, sharing the stage with such bands as Red Fang, El Perro and many relevant Italian acts. The band debuts in 2013 with their self-titled EP, followed by their first full length The Law of Purity (featuring I See the Monsters video clip), released on 2017 through Argonauta Records. Renewing the collaboration with Argonauta Records, Rhino’s second full length Human Farm will be release on early 2024, showcasing the most mature work of the band, who confirms to be true to riff worshipping and atmospheric psychedelia, still crossing the genre defining boundaries in an album that stands as unique in its segment.
