La-Ventura is a Dutch female fronted melodic Metal/ Rock band founded in early 2007. With just one single out called “Trefoil”, it caught the eye of labels around the world, battling it out for an exclusive deal.
Eventually the band released their first full length album called “A New Beginning” in 2008 through USA based label Renaissance Records.
Though released in a period where Gothic was THE hottest thing for female fronted bands, it was clear La-Ventura made their own mark.
Press, critics and fans agreed on one thing: La-Ventura had its own sound: a great blend of melody mixed with Metal, topped with groove and powerful Rock vocals. It made the album accessible for a wider range of listeners instead of just one group. All these elements combined was and still is La-Ventura.
With an EP released with three new tracks in 2010, it was a bridge between the first and the upcoming second album. La-Ventura wanted that the new music confirmed the fact that the band was matured.
The new mindset forced the band to rethink what made La-Ventura and how they could improve themselves.
With an offer the band could not refuse, they forged an alliance with French top metal producer Didier Chesneau, to record the second full length the old-skool way.
Recording in a top studio blending analogue with digital, the sound of the band improved immensely.
The tracks gained in power and conviction, never losing the real live sound and feel. The whole experience brought out the best of La-Ventura.
La-Ventura’s second album is now a fact; “White Crow” has seen the light of days in 2013 with an independent release for The Benelux.
Even after three years of production, the album sounds fresh and huge!
