About Shadows Over Lothadruin:
Wind Rose‘s debut album ignites the forges once again with a brand new re-release!
Wind Rose‘s debut album brings the traditions of symphonic and neoclassical metal back to life in the styles of Italian power legends like Rhapsody of Fire, Labyrinth, and Vision Divine; displaying power metal elements like that of heavy strings, speedy riffs, ethereal atmosphere, fantasy lyrics, and vocal prowess but with the spin of progressive metal to deliver a next level experience. Shadows Over Lothadruin creates long and memorable tracks like that of the lengthy, “Majesty“, that moves from gentle hands to darkness in “The Fourth Vanguard” and “Close to the End“. Not to be outdone are the frightening tracks like “Endless Prophecy” and “Let by Light“. With Claudio bringing in the cracking guitar tones that ascend into monumental solos alongside Frederico’s keys that build harmonic warbles, the perfect atmosphere is built. Daniele’s drumming is relentless, building heavy intros that glide into unstoppable gallops that combine with Alessio’s bass lines in perfection. Of course, it is all brought together with Francesco leading the charge under his unmatched vocals that rally Warriors to fight again and again.
