Description

Following the release of the universally praised studio album "Sacrificium" and the successful debut of charismatic vocalist Dianne van Giersbergen, the new EP 'Fire & Ashes' rises like a phoenix. With full symphonic force, three brand new songs and two special remakes of all time Xandria favorites - 'Ravenheart' (Ravenheart, 2004) and 'Now & Forever' (India, 2005) showcase the band at their very best. On top of that the band recorded two exclusive cover songs including 'Don't Say A Word ' (Sonata Arctica) and 'I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)' - (Meat Loaf). Both are recorded perfectly with emotional sweeping arrangements. "During the photoshoot for the Sacrificium record we were digging through our music libraries to find something appropriate for getting us in the right mood. At some point we got stuck with an artist every one of us had a crush on someone with and a story to tell about back when we were teenagers in the 90's. We started joking about doing a Xandria version of Meat Loaf's ''I Would Do Anything For Love'' but really forgot about it until the discussion of doing some remake for an EP came up again. With the biggest respect we started this operation of transforming one of our all time faves, a real classic, into a Xandria hymn".
