SOMBRIA - Presents First Single And Video From Upcoming Debut Album

Sombria, a new dark melancholic symphonic metal project which has been formed by singer/songwriter Dimi De San who comes under the name Valentina Devin and guitarist/composer Raven Seven, have released their first single and music video "Sarcophagus Of Roses". The band has an international line-up featuring members from Norway, Greece and Mexico and are set to release their debut album Chirographon Dei on 27th November by Inverse Records.

Valentina Devin (Dimi De San) and Raven Seven comment: "Desperation, oppression and finally redemption. This song belongs to a desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom. A song, a melodrama, a profound cry with a theatrical quality, full of old - fashioned melancholy and depression. "Sarcophagus Of Roses" is a strong metaphor of our inner self, a refuge along with the scent of roses inside your solitude."

Dimi De San's music path started on 2012 with the formation of the band Caelestia which had been leading up to 2019. Then she decided to leave and join forces with Raven Seven creating Sombria.

Both musicians have worked with big names of the metal industry like Toni Lindgren from Fascination Street Studios and Fredrik Nordström, Bjorn "Speed" Strid of Soilwork, drummer Markus "Makka" Freiwald of Sodom and collaborated with big artists and directors like Seth Siro Anthon (SepticFlesh, Paradise Lost, Moonspell,...), Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow) and Matthias Kolleg (Kreator, Lacrimosa,...).

Their live appearances are numerous appearing with important bands like Katatonia, Arch Enemy, Insomnium, Draconian among others, including Raven Seven's very succesfull collaborations at big metal festivals. Dimi's successful tour in 2019 with Norwegian Vulture industries, Hellheim and Madder Mortem marked the beginning of Sombria as a life project.

Its main purpose apart from featuring music, acting and dancing is aiming to raise awareness -through their music, lyrics and performances - over many sensitive subjects like child poverty, environmental issues, equality etc and also focusing on helping people in need as much as possible.

Chirographon Dei is Sombria's debut full length album consisting of nine songs, recorded, mixed and mastered by (Raven Seven) in Raven Seven's studio. All of the songs have been composed by Raven Seven and lyrics created by Dimi De San (Valentina Devin). Listen now to "Sarcophagus Of Roses" in the player below and wait for more. Link
