Tanagra - "Meridiem" (audio)

Το τραγούδι των Tanagra "Meridiem" από τον ομότιτλο δίσκο
Ο νέος δίσκος των Tanagra είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Meridiem" και θα κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του Απρίλη. Οι Tanagra μας έρχονται από το Πόρτλαντ, δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από εννέα χρόνια, αρέσκονται στο μελωδικό metal κι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει ένα demo κι έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hunkered down across four studios for close to three years, joined by guest musicians on piano, cello, and viola, Portland’s Tanagra has been refining and crafting the seven multi-layered compositions on their upcoming album "Meridiem" to perfection. The release, due out on April 26th, is power metal packed with depth, emotion, harmony, and complexity.

Debuting the 11 and a half minute epic title track as the first single, the song displays much of the same ambition that guided Tanagra in their three years crafting "Meridiem". It's the perfect overture to open the release, distilling the entire album's essence of dynamic lengthy songs, soaring guitar solos, majestic orchestrations, and powerful choral vocals into a single track containing everything from mournful piano passages to driving power metal riffing with a dash of symphonic black metal.»

Tanagra: «It’s pretty unanimous that this is one of the best things we’ve ever written. It’s really close to all our hearts. Initially, 'Meridiem' started as a spiritual successor to 10:04 PM off of None Of This Is Real. As the song began to take shape it became more than just a spiritual successor, instead, it seemed that 10:04 pm existed so that one-day Meridiem would take form. Really as time went on they shared little connection musically and lyrically but at its core shared the collaborative nature that we had come to know as Tanagra. This is the quintessential Tanagra song.»

Bio: «Formed out of the love of science fiction, fantasy, and theatrical heavy metal storytelling, Tanagra hit the Portland, USA metal scene in 2011 with epic, symphonic, progressive power metal with lyrical content about original fantasy/sci-fi settings, Magic: The Gathering, historical tales, and other nerdy themes.

In 2015, they released their debut album, None of This is Real, an energetic collection of American power metal showcasing their love for complex arrangements and lengthy songs which garnered critical acclaim from a multitude of publications around the world.

In the time following their debut release, the members found a deep love for progressive rock/metal and symphonic black metal, and in writing new material found ways to combine the sounds of bands like IQ, Anekdoten, Caladan Brood, and Borknagar into their existing American power metal framework. In 2016, Tanagra entered the studio with the fruits of their labors to begin recording their ambitious second album, titled Meridiem, slated for global release April 26, 2019.»
