Ukrainian melodic metal outfit Ignea has released a new single and music video (you can watch it below) for the track “Dunes“. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming new album, “Dreams Of Lands Unseen”, out April 28 via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are available now and can be purchased here.
Vocalist Helle Bohdanova says about the song: “We continue telling the story of the amazing Ukrainian travel writer and photographer Sofia Yablonska who lived in the XX century. ‘Dunes’ is inspired by her adventure to the Sahara Desert. On this dangerous journey, Sofia’s driver fainted from the intense heat, so she had to take charge of driving and also fix the overheated engine herself.
Their troubles didn’t end there, as they also had to escape from hostile locals who tried to shoot them. Our song describes how Sofia saw a mirage, so common in the desert. In our version, instead of imagining palm trees and an oasis, she saw the chilly Carpathian mountains with pine trees and rainfalls…“, she adds.
