Sleeping Romance are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of symphonic, gothic and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Alba" which will be released in November by Napalm Records.
Symphonic sounds along with some stringed instruments start off the album while choirs are also used briefly along with some classical music elements as well as the synths adding in goth touches and they also mix the symphonic and heavy stuff together and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
Female goth vocals are also used quite a bit throughout the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the riffs also mixing in elements of melodic death metal, some of the tracks are long and epic in length, one track also brings in a brief use of male vocals and when the music speeds up briefly a small amount of blast beats can be heard.
Sleeping Romance plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in symphonic and goth metal while also adding in the aggression of melodic death metal to the guitars and drums to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the human soul and its interactions with the world.
In my opinion Sleeping Romance are a very great sounding mixture of symphonic, goth and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Where The Light Is Bleeding" "Forgiveness" "Everything Behind" and "Alba". 8 out of 10.
