Symphonic metal queen Tarja presents a lyric video for “Dead Promises”. The track is the first taste of her upcoming studio album titled “In The Raw”, due out 2019. Watch the video below.
“Dead Promises” is taken from Tarja’s upcoming album “In The Raw”, which will include a duet version of the song featuring Björn “Speed” Strid of Swedish melodic death metal band Soilwork. “I feel that the album is pretty much darker than the previous one and even a… bit heavier maybe… than “The Shadow Self”,” the vocalist revealed in an interview for Bloodlines last September. Never forgetting her symphonic side and that her first love was classical music, she stated: “I will never get away from that. There are not like that kind of radical changes. But, there is always a change when there is a new album of mine coming.”
Tarja on the new track: “I really like how the guitar sounds: in your face! If I’m singing powerfully, I need something powerful behind me so that I don’t feel like I am left alone.”
More details on the new album including release date and formats will be revealed on Friday, May 3rd, 2019.
