Lyric Video For New Song “My Temptation” Posted By Sleeping Romance

Sleeping Romance released a lyric video for the new single “My Temptation.” The song appears on the new album “Alba,” which will be released on November 3rd via Napalm Records.

The band is thrilled to unveil their first track and states: “We’re stoked to finally present ‘My Temptation,’ the first single from our upcoming album ‘Alba.’ This is a killer song that represents in a perfect way the new Sleeping Romance sound: epic, symphonic and dramatic atmosphere. Hope you love it! IL METALLO!”

The upcoming album “Alba” leads a journey of orchestral opera arrangements and siren songs; touching, sometimes frightening, but always as personal as can be. Songstress Federica Lanna means every word she sings and Federico Truzzi complements her lovely voice with delicate guitars.

The concept of “Alba,” ‘Dawn’ in Italian, centers around the main character and her life that advances through difficulties, choices and mistakes, and leads the character to a positive growth. The message the concept wants to give is that life is complex, full of obstacles, but there’s always a way forward, and an opportunity for everyone to reach what their heart desire.

The full track listing is:

1. Overture – Twilight
2. Where The Light Is Bleeding
3. Lost In My Eyes
4. Touch The Sun
5. Forgiveness
6. My Temptation
7. Across The Sea
8. Everything Behind

Music and art as our imaginations see it fit to be. ‘Intra Venus’ is more concise than much of our work and is in fact the only song on ‘Urn’ under ten minutes, but one that we feel is a great introduction to the record.

Chariots Of The Gods Returns With New Single, Announces Album Plans

After a small hiatus and lineup changes, Ottawa, ON band Chariots Of The Gods returns in 2016 full force with a new single and an upcoming album.

New single “Into Oblivion” – featuring a guitar solo from Pascal Jobin of The Agonist – is ready to annihilate your ear drums below.

This is just a precursor to upcoming album “Ages Unsung,” set to be released later this year to follow 2013 debut album ‘Tides of War.” If you want to pre-order the album and help out with production costs, head over to the crowd funding campaign here.

Chariots of The Gods comments: “After all this time of not releasing new music, we are really excited and proud to finally present you some new material from the new lineup. With the coming of this new record, we thought that a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter could not only help us face the financial burden of the project, but also give us a way to engage with our fans and gauge the interest in the project.

“Unlike many other crowdfunding platforms, a Kickstarter campaign is ‘all or nothing,’ which mean we don’t get funded unless we reach our goal. Our goal for this campaign is to get 3000$ to help us with the costs of production and promotion. We hope you’ll enjoy our new material as well as the perks that we’ve prepared for you!”
