Modern Symphonic Metal Unit TEMPERANCE Reveals Impressive Single  “Darkness Is Just a Drawing” & Official Music Video!

ust in time for the release of their exciting concept album, Hermitage – Daruma’s Eyes Pt. 2, Italian maestros of modern melodic/symphonic metal TEMPERANCE reveal their third spellbinding single, “Darkness Is Just a Drawing”, together with a colorful official music video.  The new full-length, Hermitage – Daruma’s Eyes Pt. 2, drops this Friday, October 20, 2023 via Napalm Records and unveils stand-out guest performances by Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Fabienne Erni (EluveitieIllumishade), Laura Fella (Faun) and Alessandro Conti (Twilight Force).
From its opening notes, “Darkness Is Just a Drawing” envelops listeners in a world of theatrical orchestration and unbridled emotion. From haunting vulnerability to the resounding power of the impressive choir, the symphonic journey traverses the emotional spectrum of the villagers of Hermitage and the enigmatic villain Anningan.
Singer Kristin Starkey says:
„We are so proud to present our final single ‘Darkness Is Just a Drawing’ for our upcoming album Hermitage – Daruma’s Eyes Pt. 2 out in just a few days on October 20th! Although it is one of the ballads of the album, it features dynamic and passionate vocal performances from all of us and lyrically depicts one of the most important story points and lyrics of the album – ‘Darkness Is Just a Drawing’. We hope you love the journey!“
