After releasing “Pure Life Unfolds” & “Breaking The Rules Of Metal”, symphonic metal powerhouse TEMPERANCE reveal their upcoming album’s title track “Diamanti.” With the third single, the band enters the final round before the eponymous album arrives.
On “Diamanti,” TEMPERANCE show off their versatile skill-set with a mix of heavy guitar riffs, orchestral strings, and the vocal harmonies of its authentic Italian chorus. As a special highlight and to celebrate their new album, the band will release this song in five different versions. Besides the Italian original which is out today, the track will come with a chorus in different languages (German, English, Spanish and French) to be available on digital streaming and download platforms on the album release date. TEMPERANCE delights the fans with their perfect mixture of melodic and symphonic soundscapes. “Diamanti” is yet just another example of the band’s ability to create an epic tale for their listeners, accompanied by powerful and energetic vocals.
Michele Guaitoli (vocals, piano) on the new single:
“We’ve been taught that diamonds are the purest gems in this world. They’re so pure that they can’t be bent or broken. They’re almost indestructible. They’re valuable and also intangible: they inspire hope. The diamonds that rain throughout this beautiful song signify hopes for a better world, hopes for our dreams to come true, hopes for peace and joy. Since hopes are timeless and have no borders, we wanted to make this song flow through many languages. We wanted to use the language of music, which I represent in the video. The language of nature, which Marco represents in the video. The language of arts and beauty, which Alessia represents in the video. And we wanted everyone to understand the meaning of this song, even those who cannot listen to it but can use their eyes to read the message. Hopes are forever, hopes are for everyone.”
“Diamanti” was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Amaranthe), with the cover artwork once again created by Yann Souetre (Ayreon).
Marco Pastorino (vocals, guitar) on the new album:
“With ‘Diamanti,’ we’ve managed to combine our best qualities and select the best TEMPERANCE songs so far. It’s not our heaviest album, it’s not our fastest work, but surely it’s our favourite one so far! We weren’t necessarily supposed to record a new album only one year after ‘Viridian,’ but luckily we made it! In this album you will find our trademarks: the vocal harmonies, the catchy melodies, but also epic stuff, strong arrangements, and long tracks – I am very proud of ‘Diamanti’ and I am convinced we have written a bombastic album!”
