Since the 2014 album “Antillius: The King Of The Light” the worldwide admirers of the Italian Metal historians KALEDON are hoping for a successor.
Now the extraordinary formation is back with a virtuosic, melodic and epic POWER METAL spectacle!
After 3 years from the previous release, KALEDON return with the bombastic, epic and majestic album “Carnagus – Emperor Of The Darkness”.
With a renewed line-up, enhanced by Michele Guaitoli’s (Overtures, ex-Future Is Tomorrow) powerful vocals and Manuele di Ascenzo’s (ex-Secret Rule) amazing drums skills, mastermind Alex Mele (guitars) has finally forged a new chapter of the ‘Legend Of The Forgotten Reign’ saga reaching the perfect mix of modern riffs, classic Power Metal speeds, epic choirs and symphonic arrangements.
Together with Paolo Campitelli (keyboards) and the founding members Tommy Nemesio (guitars) and Paolo Lezziroli (bass guitar) KALEDON are back, stronger than ever.
Official release date for “Carnagus – Emperor Of The Darkness” is May 15th, 2017.
World-renowned French graphic artist Jean-Pascal Fournier, who has once again been working for KALEDON after the 2010 work “Legend Of The Forgotten Reign, Chapter VI: The Last Night On The Battlefield”, is responsible for the optically worthy presentation of the new album.
KALEDON had been working on the entire chapter of this saga on six albums. Once the saga was written down in 1997. Now all the parts of this long-term tracked overall concept fit together convincingly and extremely exciting on a single album.
Thematically dramatically, 2017 is all about this elaborately narrated, medieval fantasy story. It is about the classic good/evil plot … and so much more.
There are two rulers in this conflict, which is deeply marked by malicious, cruel and intriguing jealousy: while the good regent Antillius knows everything around him, which makes a decent kingdom happy, the evil opponent monarch Carnagus envies him all the luck. Everything begins with the fatal birth of Carnagus in November of the gloomy year of 1295 … (Markus Eck)
