    Power Symphony members Michela D'Orlando and Marco Cecconi will be appearing on Italy's biggest soap opera, "Vivere". The episode will be premiered on May 16th on Italy's Canale 5 at 12 noon CET. The two Power Symphony members will be playing the part of metal heads going to a concert, and Marco Cecconi will have a non-speaking role, scaring off one of the main characters. "The show looks really cheesy and 80's", commented Michela, "so we thought it would be cool to take part and have a good laugh!". Extracts from the episode will be featured on the Power Symphony site when available.

    18 Mar 2003
    Power Symphony have been featured in an article for news-journal.com! Here's an extract from the article found at http://www.news-journal.com/news/newsfd/auto/feed/news/2003/01/16/1042748292.01917.7053.5320.html.
    James Graves writes: "Admiration for others must, by nature, be limited. As we acknowledge the strengths of those around us, so we admit our own faults. Admiration is the respect of the weaker for those more proficient--the water-bound fish for the amphibious frog, the fledgling guitarist for the legend on Mtv, and countless more. Similarly, I admire a select number of people, one of whom is Michela D'Orlando, the vocalist of the Italian band Power Symphony. I greatly respect her individuality, integrity, and nobility."

    Hallo Powerheads!
    Some great last minute news here...
    Tomorrow from 17.00 to 18.00 (CET) Power Symphony will be on the TV heavy metal show Terremoto on Match Music channel. It's a TELE+ satellite channel, here's a link (in italian, sorry, but it's an italian channel).
    It's the first time Power Symphony appear on a TV heavy metal show, and our video "The way of the sword" will be broadcast as well on TV for the first time, so we're very happy!
    We have been invited only 2 days ago, but it's confirmed just now, so...Not much time to tell you, or for us to have an idea of the show!!!
    It will be a little adventure as usual...We'll tell you all about it later of course...:-)))

    8 Nov 2001
    Hallo Powerheads!
    Finally good news on the new release side finally!!!

    PARTECIPATION TO MANOWAR TRIBUTE

    First of all we joined in with many other bands for the release of a Manowar Tribute. We'll be recording at "Flying Studio" in Gravellona Toce at the beginning of December. The cover we chose for the tribute is "Blood of my enemy" which we like a lot! There will be some surprises, because Nick from White Skull will join Marco at guitars, bass guitar will be done by Steve from Anthenora a quite known Iron Maiden cover band, and drumms will be done by Mario Giannini from Node. I hope you'll enjoy our version of this classic!


    "FUTUREPAST" SECIAL EP

    More great news for all our fans is that we'll be releasing a very special EP very soon! It will contain a couple of new songs, some surprises (like instrumental left over from Lightbringer, CD rom track, our video of "The way of the sword") and for the ultimate collector fan, YES, our very first (and only) demo tape, that lots and lots of fans have been asking about, featuring our oldest material and the very first (and crude!) version of "Inferno suite" that was called just Inferno at that time.
    It's almost certain that the title will be "Futurepast" and it will give you a real glimpse into the musical future and past of this band...We're also thinking of a quite surprising booklet, you'll see...:-))))))

    17 Sep 2001
    First of all, we would like to express our shock for the terrible tragedy that struck NYC and DC. It's a wound inflicted to the whole world.

    We have started receiving answers from the labels. Hopefully we will start negotiations soon! More on this later - stay tuned.

    We are auditioning for the new line up for the next CD - be prepared for some interesting news in the near future!

    On a more personal note, we would like to greet all the fans we met at the Vader/Cryptopsy/Dying Fetus show last friday. Thanks for all the support in this time of change!

    Michael Goncharov writes: "Dear members of "Power Symphony"!
    We would like to inform you about the fact of existence of a Russian web page regarding your group. We are big fans of your music and we would like the Russian metal-fans to know about the existence of your group. The web page is created in the frames of «Russian Fantasy Music Club» project».
    This project is created in order to inform Russian fans about the leading groups, the music and lyrics of which are based on fantasy and ancient mythology (we mostly work with "metal" style of music)."


    28 Aug 2001
    Sorry for the recent lack of news. Power Symphony is negotiating a new contract at the moment, so - check often this page for news. At the moment we cannot reveal any detail.

    In October, Marco Cecconi will be producing a promo for a new band, called "Fuori Uso". The style is Glam Metal (Motley Crue, Guns'n'Roses...).

    28 May 2001
    The Way of the Sword video NOW AVAILABLE! GET IT HERE!

    21 Mar 2001
    Power Symphony is officially NO LONGER SIGNED to Pavement Records and is looking for a new deal. Due to many problems internal to Pavement USA and Pavement Europe, the band left the label in November '00. The band has a new promo ready and is working on its third release.

    Power Symphony's first release "Evillot" has been recently published in USA by Pavement Records.

    Power Symphony's first video clip "The way of the sword" is finished and ready to hit Metal TV shows and the internet. The video was filmed in Italy by LowLifeMedia (Netherlands).

    5 Feb 2001
    It is official that Marco Volpe, keyboards, has decided to leave the band!
    We are NOT looking for a replacement, so expect much less keyboards on the next record. We choose not to have a keyboard anymore to have a heavyer, 100% metal sound.

    Secondly, we've left Pavement records, and we are currently looking for a contract. We should have a new promo ready by the middle of Feb.
    Don't worry about the release of Evillot in the USA (scheduled Feb 27th), our split with Pavement has got nothing to do with it!

    Next, the video of The Way of the Sword is almost ready, we should be getting an almost finished copy in a matter of days.

    "The Lot", the official Power Symphony fan club is almost ready to go (they're trying to have it up and going by March 1st), as they tell me...
    The website of the fan club (http://fanclub.powersymphony.com) will be designed by one of Italy's top designers, Simone Biffi (http://www.troopdesign.com)...

    We have many more things "boiling in the cauldron", but you'll have to wait a few days!

    News released by Pavement Music :-)
    POWER SYMPHONY will have their Pavement Music debut "Lightbringer" released shortly. This band is simply amazing! What makes them so special you may ask? What separates them from other female fronted outfits? Simply stated: Michela D'Orlando. Unlike other female fronted bands, Michela was not a "pop" singer. The band didn't discover her singing nice songs in some tiny club. Michela is a one women metal maniac! That's right folks,dont be fooled by nice pop singers pretending to be metal maniacs, here is the real thing. For a sample of the track "The Way Of The Sword" from the Joey Vera (Armored Saint/Fates Warning) produced Lightbringer CD go to their website located here: http://www.powersymphony.com

    7 Jan 2000
