Sure you saw already the new video of Amberian Dawn
is a full blown vampire story. Full of beautiful pictures, love, death, and darkness. Full of drama, mystery and topped by the wonderful vocals of Heidi Parviainen and guest vocalist Timo Kotipelto of Stratovarius. A real masterpiece of director Ville Lipiäinen who is also known for his work with 30 Seconds to Mars, Sonic Syndicate, Nightwish, HIM, Amorphis, and Stratovarius to name just a few.
The video was shot in Helsinki and Stockholm in 2012
Mastermind Tuomas Seppälä comments:
„Circus Black is the most impressive AMBERIAN DAWN album so far. Musically it represents the most sophisticated and most symphonic edge of AMBERIAN DAWN music. There’s more diversity on this album than never before. This is the first time we used a real choir and we gathered some really excellent professional opera singers together to be able to achieve the best-sounding choir possible.“
So it can be said that Amberian Dawn stay absolutely true to their style, gifting to the world yet another album full of complex melodies, talent, poesy, a great voice and dark, mythical, beautiful stories packed in extraordinary songs.
