Finnish symphonic metallers AMBERIAN DAWN have released the official lyric video for the song "Dragonflies". The track is taken from the band's eighth album, "Darkness Of Eternity", which is being released today (Friday, November 10) via Napalm Records.
"Darkness Of Eternity" track listing:
01. I'm The One 02. Sky Is Falling 03. Dragonflies 04. Maybe 05. Golden Coins 06. Luna My Darling 07. Abyss 08. Ghostwoman 09. Breathe Again 10. Symphony Nr. 1, Part 2 - Darkness Of Eternity 11. Anyone (bonus track)
AMBERIAN DAWN keyboardist and mastermind Tuomas Seppälä comments: "'Darkness Of Eternity' is one of the most emotional AMBERIAN DAWN 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!"
Tuomas adds: "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!"
Regarding the "Darkness Of Eternity" recording process, Tuomas says: "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 color on the sound.
"It's easy for me to say that this album is without any doubt the best sounding AMBERIAN DAWN 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 [Päivi Virkkunen] on this band because she's probably the only singer capable singing all of those different styles with superior sound and feeling."
AMBERIAN DAWN released a compilation album of songs that originally appeared on their first four albums — "Circus Black" (2012),"End Of Eden" (2010),"The Clouds Of Northland Thunder" (2009) and "River Of Tuoni" (2008) — to showcase Virkkunen after the departure of Heidi Parviainen. "Re-Evolution" was made available on June 14, 2013 in Finland, distributed by Suomen Musiikki.
