Since the release of that storied album Antillius: The King Of The Light, worldwide admirers of Italian metal historians Kaledon have been hoping for a successor.
Now the extraordinary formation is back with a virtuosic, melodic and epic power metal spectacle!
After three years seemingly in the wilderness, 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 tempos, 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 – and they’re stronger than ever.
The 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 his 2010 work for 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 have been working on the entire story of this saga for six albums. Originally the saga was written down in 1997; Now all the parts of this long-term tracked overall concept fit together convincingly and extremely excitingly on a single album.
Thematically dramatic, 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 is a wise and knowing ruler, which makes a decent kingdom happy, the evil opponent monarch Carnagus envies him all his luck. Everything begins with the fatal birth of Carnagus in November of the gloomy year of 1295…
Carnagus… will be released by Sleaszy Rider Records
