Silent Opera: new singer, second guitarist announcedItalian symphonic metallers Silent Opera have announced the addition of singer Francesca Zaff and second guitarist Alex Lombardi to the group's ranks.
A video for the band's single "Symphony Of Time" featuring the new lineup can be seen below.
Commented Silent Opera: "After ups and downs, we are happy to present Francesca Zaff as our new singer today and Alex Lombardi on guitars. The new concept of the band doesn't require some alter ego figures to create a story; that's why the real names of the members are going to be used for now."
Silent Opera is working on material for a new album, which the band promises will be more aggressive but theatrical, with "more voices and choruses" incorporated into the group's sound.
Silent Opera's music is described as ageless symphonic metal, traversing the terrain between the rhapsodic romance of "Mother Earth"/"Silent Force"-era Within Temptation, the dynamic drama of Nightwish and the theatrical thrill of "Phantom Of The Opera".
Silent Opera is: Francesca Zaff (vocals), Marco Clari (guitars), Loris Volcizzi (drums), Andrea Pin (bass), Alex Lombardi (guitar).
