ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN’S – The “Live In Europe” album details

Anneke Van Giersbergen (AGUA DE ANNIQUE, ex-THE GATHERING) will release a new live album, “Live In Europe”, on October 15.  Abou the release she says:

The vast majority of the 12 songs were recorded during our spring 2010 tour in France and Spain. The touring band consisted of; Ruud Jolie (guitar), Jacques de Haard (bass) and Rob Snijders (drums). Yours truly sang, shook her booty and played piano and guitar. My front-of-house engineer Erik-Jan Dodd recorded and mixed the album. I’m really excited that the energy of a live show is captured well on this release!

There will be three brand new up-tempo songs on it: ‘Fury’, ‘Laugh It Out’ and a song called ‘Who I Am’. I wrote that one together with Devin Townsend while we were working on his ‘Addicted’ album. I’ve also re-recorded an old favorite of mine: ‘Shrink’. I wrote this song when I was 19 years old and I first recorded it for a demo I made in 1992. It ended up on THE GATHERING’s album ‘Nighttime Birds’ (1997) and now it’s revived on ‘Live in Europe’. It’s a song dear to my heart and I’m proud to share it with you in a new arrangement.

I had already chosen a picture for the album cover when Mehmet Turgut sent me a photo from a shoot I did with him in Turkey earlier this year. I fell in love with that shot instantly! Arda Aktas made a beautiful cover design.

Live In Europe” track list:

01. Intro
02. The World
03. My Girl
04. Who I Am
05. Day After Yesterday
06. Hey Okay!
07. Fury
08. Beautiful One
09. Adore
10. I Want
11. Laugh It Out
12. Witnesses
13. Shrink

RHAPSODY OF FIRE – ‘The Cold Embrace Of Fear’ 35-Minute Symphony

RHAPSODY OF FIRE will have the 35-Minute Symphony “The Cold Embrace Of Fear – A Dark Romantic Symphony” released worldwide on October 15 via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was released in Europe on April 30.

About the release guitarist Luca Turilli comments:

“For this special CD we composed a unique song of around 35 minutes divided in seven ‘acts.’ Looking at the title, you can easily imagine that such long and epic song will show the most cinematic and orchestral side of our band, all our passion for the world of cinema we love so much and that always represented our main influence while composing the RHAPSODY‘s music. Essentially it is a long huge song, sounding very symphonic, full of orchestral sections very soundtrack-oriented, narrations and spoken parts. More than in other cases we tried to create a real movie atmosphere with very dynamic musical results, also thanks to the help of the English actors that gave voice to different charachters. You will just need to close your eyes and explore those new emotional dimensions we wrote the music for.”

The lyrics of this monumental, epic symphony are based on the “dark secret saga” and represent a new chapter, directly connected to the band’s latest album, “The Frozen Tears Of Angels”.

Luca:

“After the long journey to the icy frozen northlands at the borders of the known world, while facing concrete natural obstacles and the inner demons lying in the depths of their conscience, the five main charachters reach the ancient gothic fortress of Har-Kuun, a real monument of evil trapped between ice and snow, the mystic place where the Erian’s book could be finally found. “‘The Cold Embrace Of Fear’ tells about the entrance of those bravehearts in the ancestral world of Har-Kuun and the dramatic search for the holy book of the angels, only possible way to understand something more about the dark secret threatening the whole known world. Also in this case I liked to create particular ‘bridges’ connecting the new chapter of the saga with our modern life on the basis of symbolism, ancient wisdom and spiritual evolution. To someone who knows something about modern psychology and the study of the different ‘self,’ the hidden geometries and gothic labyrinths of Har-Kuun will reveal themselves very clearly.”

Once again, legendary actor Christopher Lee was chosen for the spoken parts as a main narrator.

Luca says:

“We couldn’t imagine to release something like this without his fundamental participation, Sir Lee is one member of the RHAPSODY OF FIRE’s family since a lot of time and we love him not only as an actor but also as man. Because of his great and majestic personality he has surely the aura of a king of the ancient times.”
