Amalia Bloom plays emo hardcore and are from Vicenza in Italy. «Life’s a dance with picturesque moves and we wrote a record about it! ».Amalia Bloom’s explosive second album ‘Picturesque’ is out now!

Amalia Bloom’s first album Maiden Voyage brought a profoundly powerful, yet melodic and delicate approach to the genre and was available on both 12″ vinyl and digital CD. Their second release, an EP entitled ‘Alive, a ballet’ kept them going through lockdown, and now this beautiful new post-punk gem of an album, Picturesque, will probably rank among your favorites of the year.

Picturesque, the second studio album by Amalia Bloom, has a layered but direct sound, light and airy in the melodious moments but granite dense in the growing intensity. The band has become self-aware and owns the space of every element on the stage as in the song itself. A must-see band lives who are about to take on a tour of Europe.

After two long years and two canceled tours, they’re glad to announce that in May ’22 Amalia Bloom will be touring Europe to promote their brand new record Picturesque, released on 13th May.

Amalia Bloom commented about their new record Picturesque:

«All the songs on this record were inspired by episodes of everyday life that happened (or could happen) in the small town we were born in, Vicenza, and speak about how we wander in the spaces we inhabit. Living is whimsical and sometimes distressing, so is how we move and experience life together. Finding the beauty in the ordinary is what makes us appreciate what we have and sharing our love with those we care about is what will make the most of the time we have on this planet».

«We cherish every single connection we’ve made over the past few years and are blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people. Releasing this record would not have been possible without the support of our families and friends. We want to thank whoever was involved in the creation process of this album: Yari Ricco, the sixth member of this band, for being our brother and best friend on every occasion; Marco Casarotto, for guiding us through the rich heirloom of our sound and identity, besides having us provided the best gear in town; Elia Guglielmi and Maurizio Baggio for being great phonics and amazing people; David Gamage Of Engineer Records who supported this project from the beginning for being so enthusiastic about the music c we do; Laura Priante, for being there whenever we needed support emotional and for making us look better than we really are».

«Silhouettes  is dedicated to the memory of our friend Francesco, who loved life to the point he thought he didn’t deserve it. We will never forget you, metal always».


About Ulf Backstrøm (7417 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
