Giorgio Pinna drummer and lyricist and his brother founded Souls of Diotima in Sassari, Italy back in 2004.
Souls of Diotima is the Italian female-fronted metal band with a unique style, featuring recognizable elements of traditional, progressive and symphonic metal, as well as unconventional elements, woven together musically in a powerfully expressive new way.
The signature sound of Souls of Diotima, featuring unforgettable orchestral and special effects, combined with complex musical arrangements and compositions, powerful and mesmerizing vocals.
The band’s music engages all of the senses and conveys a feeling similar to watching an epic movie, creating very visual images, memorable mental scenes, almost tangible…the music and special effects are not actually a movie, so the Souls’ music is not technically cinematic, but the music experience and impact is so similar to watching an extraordinary film that listeners have a “ dream ‘’ experience, combining the Symphonic grandeur of the orchestra and special effects with the elements of progressive metal, while always maintaining an underlying foundation of power metal…all composed in a new and unique way, resulting in an experience for metal fans which is intense and exhilarating.
