Description

BATTLELORE is back with Middle-earth inspired hymns of heavy fantasy metal! The time has come to wield your sword and charge back to the battlefield! Following their last studio album, Doombound (2011), and extensive touring, the collective took a creative break. But now, the long, lingering 10-year sleep of Finnish heavy metal force BATTLELORE will finally end with the release of their much awaited, seventh record, entitled The Return Of The Shadow! The album title perfectly represents the band's sensational comeback. Named after Tolkien's original, shelved title for his legendary epic fantasy novel Fellowship of the Ring, BATTLELORE's brand new album features nine Middle-earth themed songs, shining with the blistering aura the band has become known and loved for. On tracks such as the epic "Firekeeper", BATTLELORE double down on their exceptional songwriting skills, diving deep into the dark facets of symphonic yet heavy metal realms! The vocal duets of Myk?nnen's power and the haunting, fairylike voice of Kaisa Jouhki merge with otherworldly guitar harmonies, as tracks such as "Chambers Of Fire" turn into pure, epic heavy metal hymns, and songs like the magical "Elvenking" excite with fantasy. Single Blurb #1 Firekeeper On first single "Firekeeper", Finnish epic fantasy metal act BATTLELORE showcase their exceptional songwriting skills, diving deep into dark facets of symphonic yet heavy metal realms! The vocal duets of Tomi Mykk?nen's power and the fairylike voice of Kaisa Jouhki merge with otherworldly guitars on this epic metal hymn! With The Return Of The Shadow, BATTLELORE - who have toured the globe and played major fests such as Wacken Open Air - return with their first album in more than 10 years! Single Blurb #2 Chambers Of Fire The time has come to wield your sword and charge to the battlefield! "Chambers Of Fire", the new single from BATTLELORE's seventh studio album, The Return Of The Shadow, showcases an exceptional band returning to the scene after more than 10 years. The ultimate Tolkien-inspired metal collective, who have gained more than a half million cross-platform streams and entered the Top 40 on the official Finnish album charts, return with their strongest, heaviest and best work to date! Single Blurb #3 Elvenking The magical new single, "Elvenking", by Finland's ultimate heavy metal fairy storytellers BATTLELORE, invites you to escape to a Tolkien-inspired sonic universe. The deeply haunting voice of Kaisa Jouhki perfectly matches Tomi Mykk?nen's powerful vocals and catchy riffage by the dynamic band - who have even headlined RingCon (the official Lord of The Rings festival) - making this track one of the most otherworldly ballads of the year!
