The new album from VENTURIA has just been mastered and a release is anticipated in September 2008. The new album entitled "Hybrid" takes off from where the bands critically acclaimed debut "The New Kingdom" left off, yet shows impressive growth from the band incorporating new sounds and a killer production.

Charly Sahona of the band comments, "We're extremely proud of the result: the production, the song writing and the performance of everybody is a step higher than the previous album. The musical approach is the same as before, a blend between metal, prog, pop, classical, electronic music and the technical parts are even more crazy.

French Prog Metalers Venturia Sign to Lion Music

Lion Music have announced the signing of French band Venturia. Venturia's music is a mix of metal, clean pop-melodies, technical progressive rock and high virtuosity.

Venturia was formed in 2000 by French guitarist Charly Sahona and drummer Diego Rapacchietti, who had already made a name for himself through his great playing with artists like Zero, Paganini and BPM. Charly had previously worked with various French artists and participated on the Shawn Lane tribute record "Shawn Lane Remembered", released on Lion Music. Bass player Thomas James later joined the band and added his versatile talents to Venturia's music. Male vocalist Marc Ferreira is a solo artist from New York who shares vocal lines with Venturia's female vocalist Lydie Robin. The pop/rock-like singing of Marc (reminiscing that of Savage Garden vocalist Darren Hayes) contrasts with the pure, clean and sensual female voice of Lydie Robin, creating a blend of aggressive and melodic vocal duet lines. To complete the line-up, Kevin Codfert (voted best keyboardist of the year 2004 for the magazine "Castle of Pagan" for his playing with the band Adagio) was invited to share the guitar/keyboards parts with Charly on the record. Kevin appears as a guest artist in Venturia.

In 2004 the band began recording the debut album, "The New Kingdom", partly at Artsonik studios in Switzerland with Carryl Montini as producer, and partly at X-fade studios in France under the guiding eyes of Kevin Codfert, who also mixed the album. The mastering of the album took place at House Of Audio in Germany by Jurgen Lusky, and was finalized in August 2005. The album is set for release on Lion Music on April 21st 2005.
