DRAGONHEART - The Devil Is By My Side


Upcoming Release:

Dragonheart Unleashes a New Metal Fantasy: "The Devil Is By My Side"!
Calling all warriors of the power metal realm, DRAGONHEART, the Brazilian masters of fantasy metal, are gearing up to deliver their fifth studio album, "The Dragonheart's Tale", on a scorching platter of molten metal, courtesy of Rockshots Records. Prepare yourselves for an epic journey that will ignite your souls and set your hearts ablaze!
DRAGONHEART's saga begins with the release of their first single, "Dragonheart's Tale", last June, but hold tight, metalheads, for there's more to come! They've now summoned forth "The Devil Is By My Side", ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtOyDqULxsQ ) a riveting track that follows the gripping character of "The Blacksmith," beloved by fans from previous Dragonheart sagas. Vocalist Eduardo Marques reveals the enticing narrative:
"Behold! The tale of 'The Blacksmith' unfolds, seeking a master in the guild, only to forge forbidden weapons using dark magic. Cast out and exiled, he vows they'll need him when darkness reigns. Witness the blacksmith's anvil of music, its solo part now a forging riff that binds two songs. With an 80s essence and echoes of Accept, this song is a potent power/true metal anthem, destined to ignite our live performances!"
And that's just the beginning! DRAGONHEART's new album, "The Dragonheart's Tale," delves deep into a fantasy world painted with medieval hues, Celtic melodies, and heavy metal fury. Divided into three acts, the album will sweep you across tempestuous seas with pirates, plunge you into blood-soaked battles, and unveil the awe-inspiring magic and fire of the mystical realm.
This thrilling odyssey showcases 10 tracks, a treasure trove of power metal styles. Immerse yourself in acoustic tavern melodies, lush orchestrations, voiceovers, and sound effects that stitch together DRAGONHEART's wondrous musical tapestry. It's no surprise that the band, with 26 years of questing, presents an opus worthy of the most revered bards.
But there's more to this tale! "The Dragonheart's Tale" also features the mesmerizing vocals of Henning Basse (Metalium, Fire Wind) on "Ghost of The Storm." This majestic journey through sound was mixed and mastered by the legendary Fredrik Nordström (Dream Evil, Hammerfall) and adorned with the stunning artwork of Andreas Marschall (Kreator, King Diamond, Blind Guardian).
DRAGONHEART's triumphant return marks the homecoming of their original vocalist, Eduardo Marques. They reveal:
"Returning to our roots was our quest, delving into an epic power metal record with medieval inspirations that will whisk our fans into thrilling fantasy stories. Just like ancient bards spinning legends in old taverns, 'The Dragonheart's Tale' shall ignite the fire of metal dreams!"
Vocalist Eduardo Marques adds:
"This new album is my Ph.D. in heavy metal. After 19 years, I'm back with DRAGONHEART, crafting musical tales with boundless passion. This is the pinnacle of our 26-year career, and we believe it's another power metal classic. We span styles and influences, breathing life into the saga for fans to dream once more!"
Prepare to be captivated by the essence of Iron Maiden, enchanted by the allure of Blind Guardian, and electrified by the might of Helloween. "The Dragonheart's Tale" will be unleashed on August 25, 2023, with pre-orders available at https://bit.ly/DragonheartCD
