Temperance - The Earth Embraces Us All (Full-Length Album - 2016) - Bandcamp Stream

Melodic metallers, Temperance, released their new album, The Earth Embraces Us All, on September 16th via Scarlet Records. The album artwork has once again been made by Gustavo Sazes (Kamelot, Arch Enemy, Morbid Angel).

Singer Chiara Tricarico comments: “This is without any doubt the most complex and mature album we’ve ever done. It basically gave us the chance to add many new elements to our music. Most of the songs in our previous albums were short and straight to the point, these new ones are longer and stylistically challenging, it takes time to fully grasp their essence. The Earth Embraces Us All is the natural evolution of our musical path, we are very proud of it, I think it represents us well!”

Temperance was born in late 2013 in Northern Italy. Four out of five of the original members, respectively Giulio Capone (drums and keyboards), Sandro Capone (rhythm guitars), Luca Negro (bass) and Marco Pastorino (lead guitars and vocals) had already played together in other projects for many years, and they decided to start a new music adventure with a band which would also include female vocals with Chiara Tricarico (vocals).

The idea was to create a unique mixture of many musical genres, with a solid melodic metal base. After a few months of rehealsals and songwriting sessions, they gave birth to their first and self titled album and signed a deal with Scarlet Records. A few months later, after the first European gigs, the band played as opening act for Within temptation in Milan and for Korpiklaani in Sicily.

After attending many gigs and festivals in Italy and Eastern Europe, in September 2014 the band toured throughout the US West Coast. That experience brought much inspiration to the band, which started the composition of the second album “Limitless” a few months later. “Limitless” was released in March 2015, via Scarlet Records. Temperance re-started again on tour over Europe including the new songs and with more powerful shows. The following summer they played as opening act for Slipknot and At The Gates at PostePay Rock In Roma.

Shortly after, the guitarist Sandro had to part ways with the band due to personal reasons. The following year was very busy for the band, that played many headlining shows and festivals in Italy and joined the European Tour supporting the shows of Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody.

In June 2016 the band performed as opening act for Nightwish, Epica and Apocalyptica in Rome. During that show, they played a preview of their third album, "The Earth Embraces Us All", released in September 2016 via Scarlet Records.
