Dutch Symphonic Metal band EPICA celebrated their 10th anniversary with a one-night-only event, dubbed Retrospect. The band was accompanied by the seventy piece Extended Reményi Ede Chamber Orchestra and the Miskolc National Theatre Choir, playing an unforgettable 3-hours best-of set.

Ten high-definition cameras captured this very special sold-out show while EPICA played in front of nearly five thousand ecstatic fans in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. In addition to a collection of the band’s biggest hits from across the spectrum of their entire catalog, this once-in-a-lifetime spectacular also features the live debut of ‘Twin Flames’ and the previously unreleased ‘Retrospect’, covers of classics by Vivaldi, Pergolesi, and Oscar-winning film composer John Williams, two guest collaborations with the venerable Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH, REVAMP), and a very special performance of their breakthrough single, ‘Quietus’, with founding members Jeroen Simons, Ad Sluijter, and Yves Huts.

TARJA – Finnish Songstress Reveals Title Plus Street Date Of Forthcoming New Full-Length Album

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, symphonic metal with tags , , , , , on May 7, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Tarja - Colours In The Dark - promo banner pic - 2013 - #1

Despite her light and airy character, the music of Finnish songstress/former Nightwish soprano, TARJA has always been shrouded “in black” – the color of heavy rock, mystery and elegance. With her latest studio recording, fans will find that same darkness highlighted by an array of new emotions, multi-hued landscapes and musical atmospheres.

TARJA’s latest milestone emphasizes once again her impressive vocal range and continued artistic growth. Titled Colours In The Dark, the ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) in Austin, Texas and delivers over an hour of music which includes grandiose orchestra and choir arrangements. Colours In The Dark follows the charting successes of 2007’s My Winterstorm and 2010’s What Lies Beneath.

Colours In The Dark will be released in North America via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records on August 27, 2013.

Further info, including cover art and track listing, to be revealed in the coming weeks. In the meantime, keep up with TARJA’s personal blog entries and recording updates at http://www.tarja-coloursinthedark.com.

Avantasia - Promo Banner Pic - #1 - 2012!

Finally! On http://www.tobiassammet.com you find the first audio samples, plus a view into the recording studios of AVANTASIA’s upcoming record The Mystery Of Time, which will be out in March 2013.

Tobi comments the 2-minute trailer with even more informations: 

“Hey friends, as you know I am currently working on a new Avantasia album. It’s a lot of work, but I am so proud of what we are creating right now – it’s amazing stuff. As my little Christmas gift to, and to make Christmas even a little more exciting for you, I’ll reveal some secrets today: Of course, Michael Kiske is on board again! I bet you expected this, you can hear him loud and clear, and he is still the number one vocalist in that range – unbelievable! But, what is really new: For the first time in the history of Avantasia, we’re working with a real symphonic orchestra: The German Film Orchestra Babelsberg! You may remember it, they have worked with Rammstein, Bryan Adams, Shania Twain, and also with Edguy on the Hellfire Club album. It’s an enchanting fairytale we are working on, so we really have no choice but to finally have a real orchestra; after all it’s an epic Rock or probably Metal Opera! If you click on the clip below, you can check out the orchestra recordings and also, you’ll hear a little sample, a rough mix of what’s to come in March 2013: THE MYSTERY OF TIME! Enjoy and Merry Christmas! – Tobi”

Trail Of Tears - promo pic - #1 - 2012

Originally formed in 1994 under the name Natt, the band changed their name to TRAIL OF TEARS in 1997. Shortly after they recorded a 3-track demo tape entitled “When Silence Cries…”

The debut album “Disclosure In Red” was released in November 1998 via the Dutch label DSFA Records, which was followed by “Profoundemonium” about 2 years later. They signed to Napalm Records in 2001 and released 4 further albums over the course of 8 years.

TRAIL OF TEARS played a lot of shows worldwide, among others with Tristania, Therion, The Sins Of Thy Beloved, Cradle Of Filth or Biohazard. They also performed at festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Wave Gotik Treffen, Metal Mania Open Air, Metal Crowd Festival or Summer Breeze.

The band went through a couple of line-up changes, most recently with the departure of the band’s former drummer Cato Jensen. Bjørn Dugstad Rønnow joined the band as new drummer in March 2012.

TRAIL OF TEARS have now signed with Massacre Records and plan to release their 7th full-length album Oscillation in spring 2013.

Chelsea Knaack – Joins Heliosaga as New Lead Vocalist

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, Power Metal, rock music, rock music news, symphonic metal with tags , , , , , , , on June 26, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Symphonic/Power Metal band Heliosaga are proud to welcome their new vocalist Chelsea Knaack!

Chelsea Knaack is known for her lead vocals in DesDemon and brought her impressive talent to their 2011 release on Radtone Music Japan.

Damien Villarreal formed Heliosaga in 2010 with a dynamic selection of musicians around San Antonio, Texas. Heliosaga’s powerful moving melodies, enhanced by Chelsea Knaack’s passionate soprano voice, will make Heliosaga a force among the ranks of the female fronted genre.

Heliosaga are writing new material and will begin pre-production for label representation following  Chelsea’s relocation to Texas this Summer.

The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life.

Chelsea Knaack states: “I was looking for a new chapter in my life with a new adventure and Heliosaga fit the plan. It was also the chemistry with the guys; we are all very similar in many ways. It will be a great adventure indeed.”

Heliosaga adds: “Chelsea’s vocals are moving, her stage presence is captivating and she has an immense passion for this kind of music. Shortly after meeting we realized how well we click on personal and professional levels, so we can say that we have gained a great friend and an incredible band mate! We are eager to begin recording our debut album together, which will be released early next year.”

Heliosaga look forward to touring in support of their debut album. This year and 2013 will be exciting years for Heliosaga with much more activity.

Heliosaga is Chelsea Knaack (lead vocals), Damien Villarreal (guitars and keyboards), Ken Lambdin (guitars), Jacob Horning (bass), and Jordan Ames (drums).

Heliosaga’s 2011 demo tracks can be accessed at their Reverbnation site. Check often for news updates and new material.
