Secret Passion (2011)

 

I created this topic because I fell in love with the 2011 album Secret Passion. It's really quite a step up from a lot of the songs from their previous albums. I highly recommend this band, and here is a song from the new album to get you started if you're interested:

Oh, someone else who likes Imperia! I stumbled across them while on grooveshark one cold, wintry evening, and really enjoy their music. Secret Passion might be my favorite album of theirs, I adore the song "Let It Down". I like the delicate manner some of their music possesses - I think it is partly due to Helena's voice.

I've just read a post about the singer of this band and her story with some sort of mafia or something like that. A group of people kidnapped her little child and now the poor kid is part of a paedophile network and she's desperately trying to get her back. Do you know if that's true?? It seems pretty awkward to joke around with such things like that.

 

I read the info in Spanish so I don't know if it's useful to post it here.

^ Earworm of the month of January 2019. A bit cringey lyrics but an excellent single. I like it.

Never paid any attention to this band but after listening to few of their songs, one really grazy one stands out.
