Sleeping Romance vocalist Federica Lanna unveils new modern metal band Voluturian featuring members of Frozen Crown.
This time, Federica who is best known as the vocalist of symphonic metal band Sleeping Romance sets on a journey to taste other flavours of metal but also electronic music. Founded by Federica and songwriter Federico Mondelli of Italian power metal band Frozen Crown, Volturian’s music is based on the huge contrast between mellow, dreamy female vocals and heavy downtuned guitar riffs, with a massive infusion of electronic music.
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. Volturian’s line-up is completed by bass player Massimiliano Rossi.
Their debut album will be released this spring via Scarlet Records (EU/USA) and Marquee/AVALON in Japan. It will feature a guest appearance by Giada “Jade” Etro, Frozen Crown’s lead vocalist.
