This symphonic metal band from Italy released their second album. The started at the Swedish label Ulterium Record, best known for the band Theocracy. Sleeping Romance even joined Theocracy on their tour in 2013. They have toured through Europe since then. They played for example at Brainstorm Festival and Fearless Festival in the Netherlands and at Christmas Rock Night in Germany. They signed at Napalm Records in 2015 and released Alba in November 2017.

This album begins with an instrumental song. It is relaxing and sounds really divine. It starts with violins and cellos. Then the drums join to make it more dramatic. It builds up to a point where a choir joins all the instruments. It really got that orchestral feeling and that makes me feel like they really got a good feeling for symphonic metal. Eventually an organ joins and even a guitar makes his way in it. This makes an great bridge for the song after it. Where the Light is Bleeding starts calm, but that soon changes. The sound is much rougher, but the violins in combination with the guitars just sound so good. The riffs on the guitar are very melodic and make with the drums a great beat to headbang to. The bridge of the song starts calmly and almost sounds like music from a music box but gets harder towards the end. Continue reading »

Mediterranean symphonic metal band, Sleeping Romance have released webisode #6 in support of their just released “Alba” album. The video can seen below.

Their new 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. Continue reading »
