HER CHARIOT AWAITS is a newly formed hard rock/metal group featuring the highly regarded Spanish vocalist Ailyn (ex-SIRENIA) and the awesome American guitarist and producer Mike Orlando (ADRENALINE MOB). The band's self-titled debut will be released on April 10 via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the band has released the first single and music video, "Dead & Gone". Check it out below.
Ailyn says: "'Dead & Gone' tells as story in the first person of how it feels to have been neglected and abandoned by somebody, in this case a biological father. It's about the words the character, a woman, wants to express to make him realize how he made her feel, and in a way put an end to that story in her life and be able to move on."
On the writing of the track, Mike says: "The song came together musically starting with the verse guitar parts and the heavy bridge/solo section. From that point everything fell into place as I wanted the chorus to drop more into a slower half time groove. Lyrically, it started as somewhat of a letter from my girlfriend Dana regarding her biological father. I then turned the basis of what she was trying to say into a more streamlined story and added a chorus and some key sections. A true story brought to life in a song and a powerful message that Ailyn delivered wonderfully."
Continues Orlando: "We had a great time shooting the video over the course of a few days. It takes place in multiple locations, which included an old Victorian style home and a beautiful modern farmhouse style home owned by my dear friend Nancy. Ailyn plays the part of a daughter who feels neglected and abandoned by her father. The video ends up outside with the band performing around a raging fire pit in an attempt to rid herself of all the memories and pain and move on. The final moment being encompassed by her tossing dirt on the flame, putting an end to the story and walking away."

One Desire - "Shadowman" - Official Music Video
Finnish hard rockers, One Desire, have released a video for "Shadowman", the opening track of their upcoming second album, Midnight Empire, out on May 22 via Frontiers Music Srl. Watch the clip below, and pre-order/save the album here.
One Desire released their self-titled debut to massive acclaim. With a true hit single, "Hurt" (nearly 2 million views on YouTube, 3 million streams on Spotify) the band found their way to the forefront of the melodic rock scene. A couple of successful European tours with Eclipse and H.E.A.T were followed by more dates and festivals through the end of 2017, before the band headed back to the studio to start work on their sophomore release.
In the works for a little over two years, the resulting album Midnight Empire generously repays the long wait the fans have had to suffer for new music from the band. It’s a more mature, at times adventurous, album, but still with an unbelievable hookiness that fans know and love from the debut. This is simply your album of the year if you like, no LOVE melodic rock. It’s going to be quite impossible to top this.
The VOLTURIAN - the modern metal band founded by singer Federica Lanna ( SLEEPING ROMANCE ) and songwriter Federico Mondelli ( FROZEN CROWN ) - have released the video for "Broken," the new single from the debut album "Crimson", due on next April 24 on Scarlet Records.
Released during the quarantine of March 2020, the video expresses, through cold and obsessive atmospheres and individual shots of the individual components, the concepts of separation and distance, the theme of the lyrics of the song, and incidentally a mirror of the current situation. This is the video for "Broken":
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Andrea Fusini at the Fusix Studio, "Crimson" is also graced by a sublime cover created by Federico Mondelli himself .Tracklist and cover below:
1. Crimson Dust 2. New Life 3. Haunting Symphony 4. Broken 5. The Killing Joke 6. In a Heartbeat (with Jade "Jade" Etro from Frozen Crown) 7. Between the Sleepers 8. Days Before You Died 9. Forevermore 10. Fading Like a Flower (Roxette cover)
