Blackmore’s Night release their re-mastered 2CD Edition of their Christmas album ‘Winter Carols’ on 20th  October, with 3 brand new bonus tracks!

The festive season is a particularly special time for Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, not least because many traditional Christmas songs originate from medieval times, which are so dear to them. On this album, Ritchie and Candice share with their fans some of their favourite Christmas songs of the last 400 years.

The song ‘Wish You Were Here’, which is being promoted as their new Christmas single, is a wonderful cover version of the Rednex song, beautifully interpreted by Candice and embellished by Ritchie’s distinctive guitar-playing. The album also contains ‘Christmas Eve’, Blackmore’s Night’s previous Christmas single (from 2013) in different versions.

In the band’s words “We have been writing one song at a time and guess we are trying to expand our musical horizon every
time. Our first single “I Bear Fire” was a really straightforward and catchy song. With this new single “Till the Sea Swallows Us Whole”, we wanted a bit more depth and diversity in the song structure and also added some acoustic guitars”.

“Till the Sea Swallows Us Whole” has been recorded & mixed by Juhamatti Kauppinen (SHED Studios) and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios.

Within a year of their inception, Vrona had already performed at Bloodstock and Mammothfest, and shared stages with the likes of Dorje, Cambion, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and more. Their first EP ‘A Lapse In Time’ released in early 2016 gained them critical acclaim with their instrumental offerings being compared to a vocal-less mix of Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool.

2017 sees a marked change in the band as they release two new tracks on October 25th and unveil a new twist to their ever evolving sound – the introduction of vocalist Jamie Ball.

The two track release entitled ‘Impermanence’ still showcases Vrona‘s brand of progressive ambient metal. However, the addition of vocals, and the acceptance of more outside influences into their melting pot shows that the band are not afraid to change things up.

A mix of classic rock and heavy metal with a contemporary edge saw Stormbringer quickly set themselves apart.
