Laura Bradly is the founding member, composer and vocalist in the LA progressive band The Longing. Bradly is definite the front person in the band with her charisma and musical skills, and she says that the musicians in the band wanted to give something extra to the fans!
Laura Bradly says, «When we compiled the original album Tales Of Torment last year it was a tough decision to select those precious x14 songs which would make the final album line-up. There were more stories that needed to be told, so we’re gifting fans with this new deluxe edition, which includes an additional x4 tracks. Now I feel the book of twisted tales is complete».
Troubled and anguished, Tales of Torment Deluxe Edition is a storybook of alternative tales, the type of narratives told from the perspective of the wicked witch and the twisted villain….those tormented cruel souls fighting against the injustice inflicted upon them.

A bitter-sweet canvass of angst-ridden frustration, Tales of Torment sees Laura Bradley and the band create an epic musical close to masterpiece of hybrid orchestral; layering sharp synths on bed of classical orchestral arrangement, pierced divinely with Bradley’s crystalline vocals. It’s the paradox of the delicate against the aggressive that creates the sheer exquisiteness of this melodic collection.
