After dropping several hints about their upcoming new album “The Legend of the Storyteller”, power metallers Avaland have shared the first single from the opus to come. The song “Crymson Tyranny” features guests such as Madie (ex-Nightmare, Faith in Agony), Pierre “Cara” Carabalona (Eltharia) and Zak Stevens (ex-Savatage, TSO):

To be out on 31 March 2023, via Rockshots Records, “The Legend of the Storyteller” will feature many special guests. From the aforementioned Zak Stevens, Madie and Pierre “Cara” Carabalona, up to Ivan Castelli (Lionsoul), Angèle Macabiès, Jens Ludwig (Edguy), and Bruno Ramos (Sortilège/ex-Manigance).

Avaland‘s mastermind Adrien G. Gzagg declares:

This album, as the first one, is a journey, a trip out of our world, into the universe of Avaland. We enjoy seeing Avaland as a great saga, as a movie, or series. We feel like listening to Avaland is like watching Game Of Thrones, The Lord Of The Rings, or reading comics, it’s an escape from everyday life. For this album, we took a lot of inspiration from Game Of Thrones and Arthurian Myths. We love fantasy and mythologies and we also find ourselves having a great fascination for alchemy and esoterism. Time is also a great subject, it’s mystical… in fact, time will be at the center of this saga. This new opus is showing a heavier and darker atmosphere of Avaland’s theatrical universe. Are you ready to be part of “The Legend Of The Storyteller”?
