As always, federico Truzzi flatters her lovely voice with delicate guitars. Songstress federica lanna means every word of “The Bleeding Darkness In Me”. After the success of their debut "enlighten” SLEEPING ROMANCE's frenetic “Alba” is not to be ignored. The italian quintet display true mastery, as they fuse bloodcurdling classical sounds with monstrous Melodic Death Metal-riffing, full of force yet sustained by noble, theatrical flamboyance.

Where others still lose themselves in colorful descriptions, this band has already set its next course and is heading with full force right into the "Heart Of The Hurricane". Shrink-wrapped. The title of the third album is metaphorically where beyond the black feel they are – and 2018 is going to be the year in which this charismatic outfit based around Jennifer Haben explores what they describe as ‘the stylistic limitations of extremes: where on the one hand the screws of hardness are tightened again by several turns; and on the other hand a previously unprecedented catchiness dominates the pieces’.

Shrink-wrapped. Together, the huge mix of elf-like vocals and deep-set growls create a bombastic widescreen production - from the heart into the fingers or "from the heart into the vocal chords", as singer Jennifer says.
