TMR: Hey guys this is The Metal Resource from Holland, how are things going there in Switzerland ?
Things are going pretty much as usual. We spend our spare time with as much music as possible.
The Italian melodic metal band Kalidia has signed a deal with Desert Rose Agency. The Dutch bookingsagency will represent the band exclusive in The Netherlands and Belgium and non-exclusive in Europe. This Spring the first results of this co-operation will be made public.
Kalidia with female vocalist Nicoletta Rosellini is a fast rising star within the melodic metalscene. Since the release of their third album “The Frozen Throne” (2018, Innerwound Recordings) the name of the band is spreading fast all over Europe. The band can be seen on festivals in England, Switzerland and Italy. Because of the co-operation with Desert Rose Agency the band hopes to get shows in The Netherlands and Belgium as well.
Nicoletta about the deal: ,,We are really excited about this partnership with Desert Rose Agency since we’ve followed their great work for other bands, epecially for the Italian ones. We really can’t wait to play for the first time in countries like Belgium and The Netherlands where our fanbase has always been strong. It’s finally time to meet you all there!”
The Swiss melodic gothic-rock band Askara signed a bookingsdeal with Desert Rose Agency from The Netherlands. The agency will represent the band exclusive in The Netherlands and Belgium and non-exclusive in Europe. During Spring the first results of this new co-operation will be made public.
During the last years Askara worked hard on their reputation, mainly in their homecountry Switzerland. Last September the band was introduced to the European audience, when Askara joined Sleeping Romance on their ‘Alba-tour’ through Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium. The Swiss were received well and this resulted in a deal with Desert Rose Agency.
The Italian symphonic metal band Sleeping Romance will be touring Europe in September 2018 to promote their new album “Alba” (Napalm Records). As a special guest, the successful Slovak melodic metal band Within Silence will come along.
Since the release of the debut album “Enlighten” (Ulterium Records), Sleeping Romance has been working hard. At the end of 2013, the band went through Europe as a support for Theocracy, and the Italians immediately made a reputation. As a result, several tours soon followed, with the band gaining a foothold, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium.
In 2016 Sleeping Romance did two shows (acoustic and heavy) during FEMME, Europe’s largest female metal festival. It meant the final breakthrough for the Italians in The Netherlands and Belgium. The band was picked up by Napalm Records, which presents “Alba” to a wider audience.
