‘Empty World’ is the third single taken from the second Volturian album “Red Dragon”, set to be released on May 20th. via Scarlet Records.

The second Volturian effort is a truly inspired and stylish rendering of the modern metal blueprint. A blend of the gothic & melancholic feeling of the exceptional debut ‘Crimson’ with an even more refined pop vein and some extra subtle electronic layers.

Each “Red Dragon” song displays a very contemporary sound, intriguing arrangements and charming sonic dynamics – not to mention the always masterful Federico Mondelli trademark songwriting.

Graced by the heartful interpretation of frontwoman Federica Lanna, lyrically and aesthetically inspired by Thomas Harris’ ‘Red Dragon’ (the novel who gave birth to the Hannibal Lecter myth) and Alan Moore and Frank Miller’s graphic novels, the new Volturian record will wrap the listeners into a warm blanket to open their eyes in a thrilling scarlet light.
