Volturian – the Modern Metal band founded by singer Federica Lanna (Sleeping Romance) and songwriter Federico Mondelli (Frozen Crown) – have released the official video for the song ‘The Killing Joke’, the new single taken from their debut-album “Crimson”.
The video can be seen below:
Based on the graphic novel masterpiece by Alan Moore with the same name, the video explores madness and sanity, electing them as the two faces of the same coin, with strong images and bright, eye-poppin’ colours. ‘The Killing Joke’ is the first official video of the band made after the quarantine and filmed at full potential.
Based on the huge contrast between mellow, dreamy female vocals and heavy downtuned guitar riffs, with a massive infusion of electronic music, the Volturian’s sound is catchy, epic and dynamic at the same time. Lanna’s pristine and ethereal vocals move fluently between slow paced groovy songs and rigid, Industrial inspired hymns, held together by Mondelli’s Swedish Death Metal oriented guitar riffs (early 2000 In Flames and Soilwork) and by the powerful and precise drumming of the young talent Alberto Mezzanotte. Keyboards add a fundamental layer to Volturian’s music, ranging from New Wave to 90’s Europop to obscure gothic atmospheres.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Andrea Fusini at Fusix Studio, “Crimson” is also graced by a stunning artwork created by Federico Mondelli himself.
Volturian‘s debut album “Crimson” has been released on April 24th, via Scarlet Records (EU/US) and Marquee Avalon (Japan).
