S91 is an Italian melodic progressive metal band. The name is derived from ‘Salmo’, which is the Italian word for psalm. They go further on their website to explain that Psalm 91:11 in the NIV is “For he will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways”. S91 was founded in 2006 with the intention of playing rock music with Christian lyrics. They released the debut ‘Sto Per Tornare’ EP (2009) and its first full-length album ‘Volontà Legata’ (2011), developing their own style of progressive metal with psychedelic rock influences.
S91 released their next full-length album (their first with entirely English lyrics) ‘Behold The Mankind’ on 7th November 2016 through Underground Symphony. It is a concept album about the history of mankind based on Christian theology. The style is progressive metal with modern shades, psychedelic atmospheres and complex time signature. It appeals to fans of Delain, Darkwater and Shadow Gallery. The album is produced by Cristiano Bertocchi (Vision Divine, Labyrinth, Wind Rose).
