Italian composer, guitarist, producer and teacher Luca Turilli offers commentary on the band’s upcoming release, The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony, scheduled for North American release on January 25th, 2011:
“Essentially it is a long huge song, sounding very symphonic, full of orchestral sections that are very soundtrack oriented with narrations and spoken parts. More than in other cases, we tried to create a real movie atmosphere with very dynamic musical results. You will just need to close your eyes and explore those new emotional dimensions we wrote the music for.”
Produced by Luca Turilli and Alex Staropoli, the tracklisting for The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony is as follows:
Act I: The Pass Of Nair-Kaan
Act II: Dark Mystic Vision
Act III: The Ancient Fires Of Har-Kuun
Act IV: The Betrayal
Act V: Neve Rosso Sangue
Act VI: Erian’s Lost Secrets
Act VII: The Angels’ Dark Revelation
