After recently signing with WormHoleDeath, Libria has now unveiled the cover artwork for debut album "Immortal Daughter Of Aesthetics." Check out the art below. Band mastermind Marianna Alfieri stated:
“Immortal Daughter of Aesthetics cover artwork shows a decisive scene during the after-death experience of a soul. In a futuristic scenery, the three lifts in a dark blue hall symbolize the paths disclosing to a soul at the end of a long and distressing journey begun soon after its death. According to an ancient esoteric tradition, this is called 'the Particular Judgement,' when the destination is established among Heaven, Purgatory, Hell and Earth. Since the cover and the whole concept of the album have symbolic references to the experience of a specific person, Hell is not considered. ” More...
Italian super group Libria - featuring Marianna Alfieri (Kirlian Camera, Spectra Paris, Dark Lunacy), Gregorio Ferrarese (The Modern Age Slavery), Elena Alice Fossi (Kirlian Camera, Spectra Paris), and Fabio Palombi (Nerve, Ritual of Rebirth) - has signed a publishing deal with Wormholedeath/Dreamcell11/Aural Music Group.

Marianna Alfieri stated: "This is the first album I composed by myself and I’m very pleased to collaborate with Wormholedeath for its release. I’m very excited about the chance to spread my music with the help of friends of Wormholedeath. The team is experienced and professional and I’m sure that joining our forces will give Libria many opportunities through the great Wormholedeath network."
Wormholedeath A&R "Worm" stated: “Leaving apart the true respect and admiration I feel for Marianna as a person and musician, when I listened to this album I wanted to support her project mainly for the potential of the album and Libria as a project itself. Immortal daughter of aesthetics is a powerful mix of melodic death metal, with an outstanding guitar work and majestic symphonic passages, lacerated by the dramatic vocals of Fabio Palombi. Furthermore the album features the guest appearance of Elena Alice Fossi (Kirlian Camera) and Alessia Cavalieri (Spectra Paris) on vocals and Francesca Dardani on violin. Nowadays Libria also features my friend monster drummer Gregorio Ferrarese. Look away from the lighthouse, and follow the stars!””
The following press release was also issued about the band: The original idea of Libria was inspired by 'Equilibrium,' a Kurt Wimmer film (2002). Libria is a city-state based on a strong absolute power, controlling the mind of people by the mean of Prozium, a drug which suppresses emotions. The 'peace' and control obtained in this way is not so different from the way our society tries to keep us blind and deaf to the awareness of Truth. Our soul can be rescued by detaching from physical senses, and increasing the power of our mind, with strong discipline and will, without any drugs, just relying on our own mental forces. From these principles and ranging over reflections about death, life, spiritual growing and esoteric studies, the whole concept of Libria was born." More...
Libria is the new project/band born from the mind of Marianna Alfieri, former guitarist/bassist of Italian melodic death act Dark Lunacy. The original idea of Libria was inspired by "Equilibrium", a Kurt Wimmer's film (2002). Libria is a city-state based on a strong absolute power, controlling the mind of people by the mean of Prozium, a drug which suppresses emotions. "The 'peace' and control obtained in this way is not so different from the way our society tries to keep us blind and deaf to the awareness of Truth."
According to Alferi: "Our soul can be rescued by detaching from physical senses, and increasing the power of our mind, with strong discipline and will, without any drugs, just relying on our own mental forces. From these principles and ranging over reflections about death, life, spiritual growing and esoteric studies, the whole concept of Libria was born."
The concept, compositions, arrangements, artwork and lyrics for the debut LP "Immortal Daughter of Aesthetics" were created by Alfieri. She recorded the album with the collaboration of Fabio Palombi (Nerve/Ritual of Rebirth), who recorded and mixed vocals and drums of Massimo Marandino (Ex-Nerve/Ex-Antropofagus), at Mela Zeta Studio in Genova, Italy. The album was mastered by Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) at Nadir Music Studios. The album will be issued in 2013 through Wormholedeath/Dreamcell 11.
