Italy’s melodic metal masters Temperance have announced their third album, to be released by Scarlet Records in September.
Temperance have been making waves across Europe with their unique blend of soaring harmonies, crushing riffs, and powerful female vocals. Their music is heavy and boundary-pushing, but full of melodies and vocal hooks that will get stuck in your head for days.
News of their third, as yet unnamed, LP comes in the wake of a European tour in support of power metal maestro Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, and ahead of a number of festival appearances this summer: not least playing alongside Epica and Nightwish at Rock In Roma this June.
Drummer Giulio Capone reacted to the announcement by saying: “We are really happy to have renewed our deal with Scarlet, the same label that released our debut album back in 2014 and supported us step by step through our second album Limitless and beyond. With our new release we pushed our boundaries more than ever, experimenting in total freedom with the desire to completely step out of our comfort zone. And I can say we reached our goal!”
Marco Pastorino, the band’s guitarist and male vocalist, added: “We are very proud of this new album, our sound is more complex and mature than ever, songs are longer in duration and stylistically challenging, with a wide range of influences that have never found space in our previous albums and that now fit perfectly into our scheme also thanks to the amazing production of the one and only Simone Mularoni. We can’t wait to share our new music with everybody out there!”
The album’s release date, title, and artwork are still TBA, but we’ll be following this story every step of the way…
