BIOGRAPHY: DiAmorte is more than music, it is an experience. A story set to the sounds of a savage orchestra, opera, and metal instrumentation. Each show, uniquely presented with live performers that build the atmosphere is each song, setting the nature of stage and bringing to life the lyrics. A stage show honed and crafted over six years time complete with choirs, players, special fx, and various performers whose presences conclude the experience, DiAmorte is as much an opera as it is a metal show. It is the philosophy that for a band that to simply enter on stage and play songs as they were on the album without anything further is to simply listen to the album itself. Music provokes visualization and demands it to complete it in entirety. This is DiAmorte…
