Italian space metal instrumentalists L’Ira del Baccano will issue their new album, Paradox Hourglass, via Subsound Records on April 14. It’s listed below as their third full-length, but my count has it as their second behind 2014’s Terra 42 (review here) — entirely possible and indeed likely I’m mistaken; the band did have a live release and a split before the studio offering, if one goes by their Bandcamp discography — but either way, preorders are up now for the new one, and after Terra 42‘s blend of cosmic impulses and crunchier, solidified riffing, it seems like one to keep an eye out for.
Comprised of four likely extended-length tracks, Paradox Hourglass will be on vinyl and CD, as the PR wire affirms:

2 years and half after the critically acclaimed “TERRA 42″ the italian band returns with ” PARADOX HOURGLASS ” and continue the instrumental journey through different songs structures while melting in their unique style and sound vibes going from the doom influences of Black Sabbath with the 60’s/70’s psychedelia of Pink Floyd and Hawkwind, to heavy-prog vibes of bands like Rush, as well as the performing freedom of jam bands as The Grateful Dead.
The album has been produced in Rome at Kick Recording Studio by Marco Mastrobuono and the band mastermind Alessandro Drughito Santori. Mixed/Mastered by Mastrobuono & Matteo Kutso Gabbianelli
“PARADOX HOURGLASS” signs again the collaboration and link between the band and the Italian artist Fabio Listrani, who also did all the marvelous artwork for the previous album Terra42.
This time Listrani translate the band music and album main theme, paradoxes, in his fascination for tarots and symbolism..
