About Us

Zippo have celebrated 10 years of being a band.

Did Zippo ever expect to last this long as a band? Probably not.
The question is - how have Zippo lasted this long? The answer is simple.
Zippo have always been about the music. Zippo’s music can be very hard to define as they include elements of Prog Rock, Psych, Stoner, Sludge, Doom, Hard Rock and even Post-Metal. Zippo thrive on creating different sounds and challenging people to use their very heart and soul to fully experience Zippo’s musical vision.

A winning philosophy has seen Zippo release three critically acclaimed albums: Ode To Maximum (2006), The Road To Knowledge (2009), Maktub (2011). But there is one thing you can say about Zippo’s albums – They all sound different to each other.
Zippo always push the boundaries of what is musically possible, which has seen them classed as one of Italy’s finest Heavy Rock bands currently out there. Zippo have played Live all over Europe to rapturous applause from fans and critics alike.

Zippo have been described as one of the coolest, loudest and dangerous bands you are ever likely to witness live. They are a now a four piece band. So expect things to become even heavier, louder than ever before. Zippo have started working on album number 4.
The world of Sludge/Stoner Metal, You have been warned. Zippo are going nowhere!!!

Zippo – Here is to the next 10 years of great music. Long May it Continue!!!
