TIMO TOLKKI RETURNS WITH A STUNNING SYMPHONIC METAL OPERA THE LAND OF NEW HOPE:

Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of Timo Tolkki's Avalon stunning new Metal Opera entitled The Land of New Hope on May 17 in Europe and May 21 in North America.
Hailed by fans and press as one of the forefathers of the Power Metal genre with his songwriting for the band Stratovarius in the late 90's and early 00's, Timo Tolkki has been silently preparing his musical revenge. Following a call in August 2012 from Frontiers Records
President Serafino Perugino, Tolkki quickly cancelled all plans and
started writing new music following an original concept discussed years
ago between the artist and Perugino. The idea was to have a magniloquent
metal / rock opera with some cinematic orchestrations to bring back the
Stratovarius original sound in a more symphonic and grandiose fashion. “I sort of rediscovered myself musically in the process of making this album”, explains Tolkki. “I
wrote the story first and started composing the music after that. My
aim was to write memorable songs with good melodies that would support
the story. In Stratovarius back in early 90's, I was one of those who
were there in creating the whole Power Metal genre, so it is natural
that people may associate this music style to me. But on this album you
will find a lot of different dynamics as well with some songs that are
fully orchestrated and sound very very big”.


For this unique album, Tolkki managed to gather some of the most renowned singers around including Michael Kiske (Unisonic), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Rob Rock (Impellitteri), Russell Allen (Symphony X), Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation) and Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica).
Rounding up the stunning line-up of this album are: Alex Holzwarth (Rhapsody Of Fire) on drums and Jens Johansson (Stratovarius), Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion), Mikko Härkin (Sonata Arctica) on keyboards, with Tolkki taking care of all guitars and bass recordings and of course production duties.

Anticipated by a sequence of YouTube trailers which have already ignited the interest among the fans, “The Land of New Hope”
opens a new chapter in Tolkki's career and perspectives, with the
Finnish artist regaining full artistic credibility with his own music
and performances. Tolkki says: “The Land of New Hope album is one
part of the story, the end of it actually. The story is longer and goes
back to the time before this album's story, so 2 more Metal Operas are
likely to follow to complete a trilogy. In generally, I find the Metal
Opera concept fascinating and logical to me at this point of my career. I
love classical music and just like in Classical Opera, in the Metal
Opera you can also create stories and have almost limitless
possibilities musically. It is not so easy to stay fresh after 25 years
career, but this album is truly something special”.


The stunning artwork was specially created for this project by Stanis W. Decker
which will be released in two versions – regular CD and deluxe edition
with a bonus DVD include a 30 minutes documentary “making of the album”
and two promotional video clips.
“The Land of New Hope” final tracklisting includes: Avalanche
Anthem, A World Without Us, Enshrined in My Memory, In the Name of the
Rose, We Will Find a Way, Shine, The Magic of the Night, To the Edge of
the Earth, I'll Sing You Home, The Land of New Hope.
The first single “Enshrined in My Memory” (sung by Amaranthe's Elize Ryd) will be released digitally worldwide on March 25th. You can enjoy a full EPK presentation of the album following this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HoyZll5j0c.
