  EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE: AMBERIAN DAWN UNVEIL 'MAYBE' FROM 'DARKNESS OF ETERNITY'
15th September 2017

Finnish Metallers Amberian Dawn's new album, 'Darkness Of Eternity', will be released by Napalm Records on 10th November and today the brand new lyric video for the song 'Maybe' is premiering here today on MetalTalk.



'Darkness Of Eternity' is Amberian Dawn's eighth album (including one re-recorded compilation), and band mastermind Tuomas Seppälä tells us:

"'Darkness Of Eternity' is one of the most emotional AD albums so far. It's got some really bombastic songs in mood of dark and symphonic melodic Metal and in contrast to that also some really poppy songs too. For me it's really hard to stick in one genre only and I constantly want to compose different kinds of songs!"

The 'Magic Forest' story continues and Tuomas explains:

"The song 'Symphony Nr.1. Part 1 – The Witchcraft' told the story on the last record 'Innuendo' before the time of 'Magic Forest'. The little girl is a healer and village elders buried her alive in a coffin.

"The track 'Symphony Nr.1. Part 2 – Darkness Of Eternity' on our upcoming record 'Darkness Of Eternity' tells the story of the girl lying in the coffin trying to get out. Darkness is asking her to dance the waltz of eternity. The story will continue in Part 3 and we will tell you how she became the Magic Forest's evil witch!"

Tuomas also spoke about the recording process:

"We did a lot of production at legendary Finnvox Studios, in Helsinki – Finland: drum recordings, mixing by Mikko Karmila and mastering by Mika Jussila. We also used a live string section on orchestral parts and that added nice colour on the sound.

"It's easy for me to say that this album is without any doubt the best sounding AD album ever! It's a kind of monument for me and it introduces the many sides of me as composer. I still feel very lucky that I've got Capri in this band because she's probably the only singer capable of singing all of those different styles with superior sound and feeling.

"In fall 2016 and spring 2017 I had the honour to visit ABBA's Benny Andersson's studio in Stockholm, Sweden and was allowed to play his personal vintage keyboards and grand piano to be able to catch some of that ABBA-vibe on a couple of 'pop-Metal' songs. I know there's really a huge contrast to those symphonic songs, but I just needed to go even further with this style I started with 'Court Of Mirror Hall' and 'Knock Knock Who's There' on our previous album. So, if you liked those, you'll going to love 'Maybe' and especially 'Sky Is Falling'."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
