Italian progressive metallers NOVERIA have inked a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their debut album, "Risen". Due on June 10, the CD features nine challenging songs in a style the band likes to call "catastrophic" metal. The effort was recorded at VDM Studios in Rome, Italy and was mixed and mastered by renowned producer and musician Simone Mularoni (DGM, EMPYRIOS) at Domination Studios in San Marino, Italy. Mularoni also laid down a guest guitar solo on the track "Fallen From Grace". The album's beautiful artwork was created by Simone Bertozzi (MNEMIC, EMPYRIOS).

NOVERIA consists of Frank Corigliano on vocals, Francesco Mattei (former member of BATON ROGUE MORGUE) on guitar, Emanuele Casali (DGM, ASTRA) on keyboards, Omar Campitelli on drums and Andrea Arcangeli (DGM, SOLISIA) on bass.

A music video for "Risen"'s first single, "Downfall", was filmed and edited by Matteo Ermeti in a steel factory in Terni, Italy and will be released soon.
