Melodic Metal Band Symphonity Releases New Single & Music Video ‘Dreaming of Home’


Marco Polo – Dreaming Of Home’ is Symphonity‘s second new single and videoclip with the refined new line-up, featuring Konstantin Naumenko (Sunrise) and Mayo Petranin (ex-Signum Regis) on vocals.

Lyrics for this song were pinned down by no other than our very own Billy Jeffs of Memories of Old.

The song was mixed by Mikko Karmila & mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios, Finland (Nightwish, Stratovarius).

The audio version is available on all major digital streaming & download sites.

The beginnings of the band fall to the year 1994, when guitarist Libor Krivak and drummer Tomas Suchacek founded the formation called Otter which was subsequently renamed to Nemesis. during the years of rehearsals and changes in the line-up a few demos were recorded. This effort led to recording of the debut album “Voice from the Silence” with the experienced singer Vilem Majtner. It was released in spring 2003 by Italian label “Underground Symphony” and rereleased in 2009 via Limb Music.

Fast forward, at the end of 2018 the new chapter has begun, when Symphonity announced a brand new line-up featuring an Italian singer Antonio Abate (Perseus) on vocals, Radim Vecera (Dream Patrol) on drums and Tom Sklenar on bass. In March 2019 Mayo Petranin (ex-Signum Regis) joined the band as second singer in order to replace Herbie Langhans. Not long after that, the band showed up on Power Metal Festival in Freising, Germany (April 6th 2019) for the very first gig with this brand new line-up. It was also for the first time when fans could hear some songs from “King of Persia” live. During 2019 the band showed up live as a support for bands like Freedom Call, Vision of Atlantis, The Unity and Mob Rules.

November 29th 2019 the band released new single ‘Crimson Silk’ as an official video under Limb Music. Marek “Ashok” Smerda (Cradle of Filth) appears in this video as a special guest. In this time, Symphonity began to cooperate with Finnvox Studios and this song is the first one which was mixed and mastered there.

In February/March 2020 the band went for the first European tour as a support of Rhapsody of Fire. The tour had originally 15 dates, but unfortunately last 5 shows were cancelled due to beginning of the Corona virus crisis. However, the first 10 shows had very good responses and reviews and were very well received by fans.

Antonio and Radim didn´t participate on this tour from personal reasons, so fans could see Mayo on vocals and Josef Ciganek as a guest on drums. Shortly after the tour both, Antonio and Radim, left the band. Konstantin Naumenko (Sunrise) became a new singer. He introduced himself on their single ‘Dreaming Of Home’.

Their latest album, “King of Persia” has been released worldwide on September 30 & November 18 2016 in North America through German record label Limb Music.
