VOLTURIAN 'Broken' official video released!
Volturian – the Modern Metal band founded by singer Federica Lanna (Sleeping Romance) and songwriter Federico Mondelli (Frozen Crown) – have released the official video for the song ‘Broken’, the new single taken from their debut-album ‘Crimson’ (out on April 24th, 2020, on Scarlet Records).
Produced in March 2020, while the band was already on COVID-19 lockdown in their native Italy, one of first countries that was hit hard by the global pandemic, the video expresses, through cold and obsessive atmospheres and individual shots of the band members, the concept of distance and separation, which was already the theme of the song and now perfectly mirrors the times we are living.
Based on the huge contrast between mellow, dreamy female vocals and heavy downtuned guitar riffs, with a massive infusion of electronic music, the Volturian’s sound is catchy, epic and dynamic at the same time. 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.

"Crimson" is a set of catchy, agile and straightforward songs built around Federica Lanna's powerful and seductive vocals, born from the will to explore new unexpressed sides of her personality. During the creative process, the sodalice between Federica and songwriter Federico Mondelli gave life to unexpected results, much different from both artists' main bands. But still, Volturian's debut album shines with its own strong and precise personality, mixing old school elements with modern ones to create something unique.
