BIOGRAPHY: DiAmorte is more than music, it is an experience. A story set to the sounds of a savage orchestra, opera, and metal instrumentation. Each show, uniquely presented with live performers that build the atmosphere is each song, setting the nature of stage and bringing to life the lyrics.

It is the philosophy that for a band that to simply enter on stage and play songs as they were on the album without anything further is to simply listen to the album itself. Music provokes visualization and demands it to complete it in entirety. This is DiAmorte…

DiAmorte Unleash their Heavy Dark New Single “Roses of Dusk, At Dawn Turned Dust”

From mind to melody comes the second release from the “Prelude to Shadow” EP with the six minute epic,
“Roses of Dusk, At Dawn Turned Dust” written by Drake Mefestta and additionally orchestrated along with Spencer Creaghan, featuring the percussion works of Rick Hernandez (Reign Inferno). The concept behind this piece is nothing short of a rhyme for revenge, entailing emotions bathed in blood and war. The sounds cascade, enveloping the song in an atmosphere of strife and conflict that reflect the over-arching story behind “The prelude to Shadow”.

Look for DiAmorte’s new EP “Prelude to Shadow” to be released worldwide early next year via Dark Star Records in Association with Sony Music Entertainment.
