DREMORA Parts Ways With Singer, Seeks Replacement

Los Angeles-based symphonic metal band DREMORA has issued the following update:

"Due to issues with distance and relocation, differences in agendas, and other conflicts. It was decided that it was in the best interest of the band that Juliana [Novo, vocals] should pursue her own passions and music career in Brazil, while DREMORA continues on with a new female soprano voice local to Los Angeles, California.

"One of the goals of DREMORA in 2008 is to start doing live shows, and to seek a contract with a label. It was felt that the aforementioned conflicts would not be resolved with any amount of effort, making these goals impossible to attain. All the best wishes go to Juliana in her future pursuits and dreams.

"The band is currently holding live auditions for a female soprano vocalist / singer that can perform equally well live and in the studio the material from our 'Martyrs' CD, is outgoing, and can front the band with a good stage presence. We will make a separate announcement later about accepting live auditions to fill out the remaining positions within the band."

DREMORA recently released its debut EP, entitled "Martyrs". The CD is a limited-production digipack format consisting of four songs with a total play time of 22:48. The track listing is as follows:

01. Alone (4:59)
02. Martyrs and Madmen (4:25)
03. Fair Haven (7:17)
04. Transcending God (6:07)

According to a press release, DREMORA "mashes an 'old school' heavy metal sound with classical orchestration and gothic overtones, which is then polished with powerful, yet seductive, female operatic vocals. This exceptional combination of American and European style is what makes it original. DREMORA has been described by its fans to contain elements from bands such as NIGHTWISH, EPICA, AFTER FOREVER, DREAM THEATER, and MEGADETH."
