More about Bella Morte: Bella Morte sings songs of love and loss, hope and despair. Combining driving electronics, graveyard ballads, emotive storytelling, and powerful guitar riffs, Bella Morte have developed a distinctive style embraced by legions of fans around the world.

In 2013 Bella Morte released “The Best Of Bella Morte (1996-2012)” celebrating the first 17 years of their dark, diverse catalogue of sounds. This collection features highlights from the band’s 7 albums and 2 EPs.

On October 28th, 2014 the band released their most powerful, mature album to date. ‘Exorcisms’ finds Bella Morte at their best, blending the driving, emotional style of their recent albums with the haunting synths and desolate landscapes found in their early work. The video for the title track stars Kim and Misty Ormiston, who will appear in “American Horror Story” this year. They will also appeared in the 2015 film “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.”

As the band continues to tour and write new material, they remain eternally thankful to be doing what they love: singing songs about the dead and winning the hearts of the living along the way.
