Chamelion release “Hero’s Tale”

Creating epic symphonic fantasy power metal combined with classical music, including choir, renaissance, and baroque elements, Finland’s Chamelion, will be unveiling its debut album “Legends & Lores” this coming December 2023 on Rockshots Records.

Over the years they have released a few demos with various lineups. They now have a solid quintet of musicians that features founder keyboardist Marco Sneck, Tomi Viiltola (vocals), Marco Sneck (keyboards), Jari Satta (guitars), Jukka Jokikokko (bass) and Janne Kusmin (drums).

Recorded in various studios and mixed by a legendary Tampere-based power metal mixer Jussi Kulomaa. Fans can hit the play button, and close their eyes to dive into a fantasy world where might and magic rules.

“It’s is pure Fantasy Metal. The album is meant to be heard from beginning to end, as all the tracks are lyrically entwined into a chronologically advancing story. There are heroes, elves, magical quests, and other fantasy elements to get listeners all inspired! It is 55 minutes of adventurous heavy metal”,

says Marco Sneck.

Inviting fans last month on the band’s first quest with the track “The Shadowleader”, they are ready to tell their next adventure with their first song ever written and the album’s second single, “Hero’s Tale”.

“It’s a faster one and contains for example fast double bass drumming, a guitar solo, victorious chorus, and epic choir parts to name some elements of what you hear. Lyrically it’s a tale about the album’s main character, fighting for the good guys. This is what our fantasy metal is all about!”,

adds Sneck.
