After a huge period of stop due to personal motivations of the founder members of the band, Dragonhammer comes back in 2012 with a stronger and new powerful line-up. Giulio Cattivera on keyboards and Andrea Gianangeli on drums join the band alongside with Gae and Max. The band comes back on stage with the new formation playing along with great bands like Jorn Lande, Primal Fear, Ektomorf, Dgm, Elvenking, Trick or treat, etc.. But the Dragonhammer’s official return is finally consacrated by the release of “The X Experiment” in 2013 and a new signing contract with label “My kingdom music”. Modern epic power-prog metal with a futuristic-fantasy is the stamp of the modern Dragonhammer! The X Experiment permits the band to go for a long European tour together with FreedomCall for more than one year, including many countries in northern, east and all the central Europe. Close to the end of the tour, the new guitarist Flavio Cicconi join the band and Dragonhammer ends the tour sharing the stage with Rhapsody of Fire, in this period the band finally reaches a stable formation.
After the succesfull response of The X Experiment, time is right to come back in studio and to focus on the fourth album “Obscurity” that is released in October 2017. This album is the continue of the story started in The X Experiment and with powerfull melodies, modern approaches to power and fantasy, it marks the decisive maturation of the band.
