Up until now, one was probably prone to associating Russia mostly with snow, bears, Vodka, ballet and cossack choirs. It is time for a change of mind, as the land also produces some of the finest Gothic Metal sounds around today. Dark Princess are now releasing "Stop My Heart" - an album that is bound to cause quite a stir in and beyond the genre. With Olga Romanova, the band sports an eye-catching front figure with a mighty voice, but they are also masters at producing massive guitar riffs and writing tunes with hit potential. On "Stop My Heart", they show their expertise by conjuring up a collection of extremely versatile catchy and dark rock pieces. Dark Princess effectively mingle classical influences and romantic elements with rocking NuMetal-attacks. Olga's powerful voice is nothing short of mesmerizing while the band's straightforward sound assures maximum rockability, making sure that even the most romantic moments never border on Kitsch. Dark Princess aim directly at the heart… but without neglecting the rock factor. This is the stuff that dark Metal dreams are made of! "Stop My Heart" is released as a limited first edition incl. the group's debut album "Without You" as a bonus disc. Released on Out Of Line and available February 1st, 2008.
