Twilight Force announce new record, At the Heart of Wintervale, out on January 20th via Nuclear Blast
Hear ye, hear ye, all mortals of the Twilight Kingdoms! During the past few years, Swedish adventure metallers Twilight Force have been crafting a new opus. Three years after the release of their previous record, Dawn Of The Dragonstar, it is time to tell new stories and continue the incredible epos of the group. Entitled At the Heart of Wintervale, this new opus will consist of eight captivating tales from far and wide, all stories and legends from the Twilight Kingdoms, gathered over years of meticulous research, that will further explore and delve into the vast and magical world of its realms. To celebrate this delightful day of the album announcement, you can already pre-save the first single here.
On this new record, Twilight Force comments, “After what feels like aeons, we can finally proudly unveil the details of our fourth opus: At the Heart of Wintervale. At the Heart of Wintervale is set to be unleashed on January 20th. While the dwarven forges are busy assembling the physical manifestations of the album, we can all use some time to brush up on old incantations, polish dusty daggers, and re-stir murky potions – for this glorious quest will be upon us before we know it, and for that we must be prepared! The breathtaking and dramatic cover artwork is once again created by the brilliantly skilled Kerem Beyit. It depicts the tale told in the title track of the album – where an evil curse is broken, and an ancient dragon may finally roam the realms again, free and unfettered!”
Furthermore, the limited Digibook edition of At the Heart of Wintervale will also include three bonus tracks. The first one is a song which many of Twilight Force’s loyal knights may somewhat recognize – it is an acoustic blend of some of the older works, featuring an entrancing vocal performance and guitar work by the group’s very own wood elf Aerendir. The second and third bonus tracks are orchestral versions of two songs from the record, where fans will have the opportunity to experience a different soundscape and perhaps discover new exciting elements and intricacies never discerned before.
At the Heart of Wintervale will be released on January 20th via Nuclear Blast. Physical and digital pre-orders will be made available soon.
