After their acclaimed record Circus Black in 2012, Finnish symphonic metal band AMBERIAN DAWN have just announced their signing with Austrian Rock & Metal Powerhouse Napalm Records. The band will be releasing the band's new album Magic Forest in June 2014!
"I'm very glad about this new deal with Napalm Records. I'm sure that our cooperation will be successful and enjoyable. This label showed interest in us at the very beginning of our career so I feel very comfortable working with this great label today! Together with our booking agency/management Twisted Talent Concerts we're surely going to make something happen here," comments songwriter Tuomas Seppälä.
"Magic Forest is AD's first studio album with singer Capri, continues Seppälä.With her I've been able to fulfill some of my early dreams with musical styles and this new style is really big, fresh and naturally flowing. The new sound is more keyboard driven and the vocal lines have some strong 1980's influences. But since this is AD, there are of course some fast songs included and some really serious guitar & keyboard shredding too. Mr. Jens Johansson of Stratovarius once again contributed some really awesome playing in the form of a keyboard solo. Thank you Jens, for supporting us for so many years now.
This is also first time in AD's history when we had an actual production team put together. Thank you Mikko P. Mustonen and Capri for your awesome support and work. We really have an extraordinary production team here. We had so much fun doing this album and you can really sense and hear the relaxed atmosphere we had on the process."
