This was the song that started it all. The perfect representation of most of the elements that form our music: melody, technique, a simple song structure, guitar/keyboard leads and speed. Lyrically, it’s about my beliefs in the universe and the ability we have to harness its power.
“Silverseal“ is an epic song with a catchy melody, taken off “Reader Of The Runes – Divination”. It comes with a visually stunning music video that the band filmed in the geothermal springs in Tuscany.
“Fiesta Y Copas” is the new single from the German metal veterans, featuring a guest appearance by Ronnie Romero of Rainbow.
Hansi Kürsch comments: “The cover artwork by Gyula Havancsák just perfectly fits our upcoming project and I think it’s a true masterpiece. Gulya’s love for details is incredible and his ability to see behind complex stories and reproduce them in art is amazing.”
The album, the music and the lyrics all seek to empower the listener and remind them that THEY are masters of their destiny and what happens in their lives.
Built as a concept, „Reader Of The Runes – Divination” is an adventurous journey into a mystic world of runes, magic and ancient powers far away from the visible. Expect big melodies, folk tunes, lots of acoustic breaks and heavy stuff ´.
“‘Night Call Girl’ is a huge tribute to the 80’s metal we grew up with. It’s a mix between Gary Moore, Rick Springfield, Europe and Journey. The lyrics are all about the classical catch phrases they used in those days and it has one of the best “sing along” choruses on the album. Power metal doesn’t go far away from 80’s metal so that’s why we felt that this tribute to our 80’s hair metal heroes fits great on »Above The Sky«.”
The Italian power metal heroes will visit Sweden on September 27th for a concert at Klubben in Stockholm. Tickets go on sale today at 10.00 through Tickster.
“‘Phoenix Rising’ represents the bridge between our past and our artistic future, including some elements of the traditional symphonic metal school combined with heavy guitars, the modern sounds we love nowadays and an ethnic interlude featuring the unique voice of Mongolian artist Uyanga Bold.
Delivering a load of fast-paced anthems, imbued with Eriksson’s soaring vocals, the band are sure to please fans of titans such as Helloween, Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray and Stratovarius.
