Melodic modern metal with a twist of gothic chic!
Volturian is a modern metal band founded by singer Federica Lanna (Sleeping Romance) and songwriter Federico Mondelli (Frozen Crown), based on the huge contrast between mellow, dreamy female vocals and heavy downtuned guitars, 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 a powerful and precise drumming. Keyboards add a fundamental layer to Volturian's music, ranging from New Wave to 90's Europop to obscure gothic atmospheres. The album concept relies on dark, obscure and romantic themes, infusing the band's lyrical imagery with gloomy Victorian vibes.
