Legado de una Tragedia unveils its top video and track “Britannia”

The project leaded by Joaquín Padilla, Legado de una Tragedia, is surprising us with the video for their first single “Britannia”. A eight minute length track including vocals by Jognny Gioelli (Hardline, Axel Rudi Pell) and David Readman (Pink Cream 69, Adagio). “Britannia” goes beyond the bases of Heavy Metal to focus on epicity and the greatness of the orchestra and vocals of the most Lyrical Heavy Metal. This is the first advance from a very special opus featuring Isra Ramos (Avalanch), Tete Novoa (Saratoga), Thomas Vikstrom (Therion), Baol Bardot Bulsara (TNT), and many others talents from the local and international scene of Heavy Metal. A n opus that will make history in the Opera Metal genre.

Quoting the man behind the opera, Joaquín Padilla:

“Britannia mixes in 8 minutes the whole spirit of the project. It’s a song that goes through many moods, many landscapes that will take you to the woods, to those lands leaded by druids and ancient rites, battles, blood, and the dark side of betrayal. This is the most epic song that I’ve ever written. I decided it to be the first single in English because this is the biggest novelty of this project, since it’s been an Spanish-only project till Britannia. This is the firs time that I release an English version along an Spanish version. The other biggest novelty is that is performed exclusively by a real lyrical symphonic orchestra and rock vocals. This is the definitive path to a Heavy Metal musical. I even have been fortunate enough to collab with my biggest heroes from my youth such as Gioeli and Readman, can I really ask for more?!
Both have done a great job and have taken the track to the next level.”
