ARCHON ANGEL, feat. members from Secret Sphere, Nightmare, Savatage, have signed with Frontiers Music srl; debut album to be released early 2020.
ARCHON ANGELS er et nytt bandprosjekt dannet av Secret Sphere-gitarist Aldo Lonobile og vokalist Zak Stevens (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Savatage). Duoen møttes under innspillingen av Timo Tolkki’s Avalons seneste album, Return To Eden, hvor begge bidro.
A new band project born from a meeting between producer/guitar player Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere) and former Savatage and Circle II Circle vocalist Zak Stevens Circle II Circle during the making of Timo Tolkki’s Avalon’s ‘Return To Eden’ album.
Her er Zak Stevens historie om hvordan alt falt på plass og ARCHON ANGEL ble skapt:
Aldo Lonobile of Secret Sphere was producing the ‘Return to Eden’ (Timo Tolkki’s Avalon) album and that’s how we originally met in 2018. He contacted me by email and together we chose the two songs I would be singing on. Right away, it was super easy working with Aldo and we thought very much alike as far as music and production are concerned. And now, here we are today as bandmates in Archon Angel and playing together on the debut album, «Fallen»!
Debutalbumet, Fallen, slippes tidlig neste år. Forhåndsbestilling og første musikkvideo vil bli tilgjengelig fra og med 4. desember 2019, mens bandets livedebut vil skje under 2020-utgaven av 7000 Tons Metal Cruise.
The band’s debut album, «Fallen» will be released in early 2020, with a music video for the title track and pre-orders for the album launching on December 4, 2019. The band will make their exclusive live premiere on the 2020 edition of the popular 70000tons of Metal Cruise in January.
Aldo Lonobile har dette å si om samarbeidet med Zak:
Zak had a huge impact on my musical background: he has a unique vocal tone and the milestone albums he recorded with Savatage are among my all time favourite albums. When Frontiers gave me the chance to work with him during the production of the latest Timo Tolkki’s Avalon Metal Opera «Return To Eden» I was very excited and everything has been super easy. I am very proud of the music we wrote together and we are a great team, stay tuned for more news!
I tillegg til Aldo og Zak består bandet av trommeslager Marco Lazzarini (Secret Sphere), keyboardist Antonio Agate (Secret Sphere) og bassist Yves Campion (Nightmare).
