GENRE: Symphonic Metal
RELEASE DATE: July 12, 2019
Led by her singing
wolf Tamara Amedov, VISIONATICA entered the first league of Symphonic Metal in
2016. With her fantastic, crystal clear soprano vocals combined with the
powerful grooves, melodic guitars and impressive orchestra elements of her
companions, this musical pack raised a lot of dust in the scene with their
debut “Force Of Luna” and celebrated first successes. The nine songs of the
varied album, which has been released through Dr. Music Records, were recorded
and produced by Timon Seidl in the Red Audio Studio. For mixing and mastering
the musicians from the south of Germany could enchant no less a figure than
Gate Studio’s Olaf Reitmeier, who already worked with Metal giants like
Avantasia, Kamelot or Epica. VISIONATICA leave nothing to chance and continue
their clear musical vision purposefully with the upcoming album “Enigma Fire”
and their proven producer team. The second album, which will be out on July
12th, 2019, also marks the beginning of their worldwide collaboration with the
renowned Hard Rock and Metal label Frontiers Music Srl (i.a. Whitesnake, Alan
Parsons etc.). Not only for fans of bands such as Within Temptation, Nightwish,
Delain or Xandria, this band is highly recommended!
With their first video single “She Wolf”, Tamara Amedov’s pack has achieved a real hit, which is still heard umpteen times on Spotify as well as YouTube. Altogether, the top 10 songs reach over a million plays! The fanbase is not just limited to Europe, there are also numerous fans in North and South America, who celebrate Tamara’s outstanding voice as well as her remarkable band around guitarist Manuel Buhl, drummer Gerhard Spanner and bass player Tim Zahn. In 2013, VISIONATICA started to realize their idea of a Symphonic Metal band. They created a sophisticated concept and started the songwriting for their debut. The result is an extremely melodic, but at the same time powerful album full of energy, in which skilled composed orchestra sections merge perfectly with virtuously played guitars, driving drums and the fantastic voice of the classically trained vocalist. With “Force Of Luna” VISIONATICA produced an album that tells stories about wolves, visions, lies, myths and much more. With their hit “She Wolf” and no less powerful songs such as “Certainty Of Benevolence” or the emotional duet “The Thorns” with Winterstorm singer Michael Liewald, they arouse desire for their upcoming second album called “Enigma Fire”.
The new album proves that VISIONATICA are not resting on their first laurels. Bombastic orchestral arrangements paired with the usual hard guitars, in combination with new oriental elements and Balkan influences, create a vast variety during the nine songs. In “Enigma Fire” the lyrics have a different focus than they had on the debut. The opener “The Pharao”, which will also be released as a video single on April 16th, 2019, deals with the secrets of ancient astronauts in relation to old Egyptian relics as well as the mystery about the origin of life. With the third single “Roxana The Great” Tamara continues the series of strong female characters. After “Lilith” on the previous album, this song tells the story of the wife of Alexander the Great of Macedonia. In this way, Tamara Amedov shows a reference to her ethnic origin. In “To The Fallen Roma” she pays tribute to the Sinti and Roma who died in Auschwitz, also to oppose prejudices towards these ethnicities. But not only as a result of these songs “Enigma Fire” will be released as a milestone of modern Symphonic Metal, also due to the other new tracks like the second single “Fear”, the belligerent “Dance Of Fire” or the unfinished dream “Incomplete” the enthusiastic fanbase of VISIONATICA will continue to grow worldwide! Not least because the band brings more voices to the album as a contrast to Tamara’s incomparable voice, which clearly lifts “Enigma Fire” up from the debut album. In “Rise From The Ashes” Michael Liewald performs another duet with Tamara. Additionally, her Macedonian relatives provide with their folkloristic chants like in “To The Fallen Roma” that certain something.
