Details Of New Album “Alba” Revealed By Sleeping Romance

Let the curtain rise on the new Mediterranean symphonic metal sensation: Sleeping Romance. The new album “Alba” will be released on November 3rd 2017 via Napalm Records and available as digital download as well as jewel case.

This Italian quintet displays true mastery, as they fuse bloodcurdling classical sounds with monstrous melodic death metal-riffing. The music is full of force yet sustained by noble, theatrical flamboyance and provides a symphony for the broken-hearted who somehow manage to love again.

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. Don’t miss out on all details including track listing, release date, available formats and album cover below.

The band commented states: “We are very excited to present our new album ‘Alba,’ an album we are very proud of! ‘Alba’ represents a strong musical evolution compared to our debut album and is more dark, powerful and deep. Heavy guitar riffing, a lot of orchestral and choir sections and emotional lyrics is what you’ll get from this album. All strings, woodwinds, brasses and choir parts are recorded live to give our songs real life and a great sound.

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.
We really hope you will appreciate our second album, both the music and the concept and atmosphere!”

Tusmorke Announces “Riset Bak Speilet” International Release

Svart Records has announced May 16th as the international release date for Tusmorke’s “Riset Bak Speilet.” The label comments:

“A Norwegian group, Tusmorke (‘Twilight’) is a strange beast. With roots stretching deep into the Scandinavian neo-progressive rock underground of the early ’90s, the identical Momrak twins recorded a Tusmorke demo in 1997 but soon put the band on hiatus for several years.

“Tusmorke returned in 2009 with a full electric lineup, and the debut album, Underjordisk Tusmorke, appeared three years later. May 2014 sees the dark minstrels return with a sophomore album, Riset Bak Speilet (‘The Birch Behind The Looking Glass’).

“A 50-minute transmission from the heart of the darkest northern forests, the album skillfully channels the spirit of classic British acid folk rock and soaks it in a black witches cauldron. The spellbinding concoction is at times reminiscent of classic acts like Jethro Tull and Incredible String band, and also not entirely far off from modern forest magicians such as Hexvessel and Wolf People.”

The track listing is as follows:

1. Offerpresten
2. Gamle Aker Kirke
3. Black Swift
4. All is Lost
5. Riset bak Speilet
6. Mener Vi Alvor Nå? (CD bonus track)
7. Kairo (CD bonus track)
8. En Verden Av I Går (CD bonus track)
