MelodicRock Records is proud to announce the release of the next title in the fledgling label’s line-up – Italian symphonic melodic metal band VIOLET SUN.
Their debut album “Loneliness In Supremacy” will be released November 19, with pre-orders shipping November 12.
Violet Sun’s core goes back to 2005, when Dario Grillo (Platens, Thy Majesty) heard the voice of Alessandra Amata, a singer of great talent of Catania, well known in the Sicilian musical circle. Dario had some interesting unpublished work that proposed to her. Alessandra immediately showed herself to be very enthusiastic about the project and so in a few months they began to work to the drawing up and the realization of the songs contained in the debut album.
Loneliness In Supremacy is not a normal Metal album, but a real blended work in which the styles such as classic and opera music, heavy metal, oriental, progressive and AOR blend perfectly together to create powerful and memorable melodies. This record places itself midway between a real Metal Opera (Avantasia, Aina, Nostradamus) and bands as Nightwish, Epica, Kamelot.
MelodicRock Records owner Andrew McNeice: “There is nothing harder in this scene than breaking in a new name, but just as my other signings have impressed, so to did Violet Sun. One listen and I called upon Dario to sign up. I wasn’t looking for a heavier project to add to the label, but taking each release on its merits, this just screamed out for attention. The production is simply world class. Intense themes, immense arrangements and the power and emotion of the material appealed to me instantly. I am very happy to have such a strong group of artists involved in the label and Violet Sun only enhances that.”
The album comes with 12 powerful tracks and a deluxe 16 page booklet featuring the outstanding artwork of Ciao Caldas (Degreed).
