Rockshots Records is proud to present their latest signing of Finland’s CHAMELION for the release of their debut album “Legends & Lores” due out in December 2023.
Founded by keyboardist Marco Sneck, CHAMELION creates epic symphonic fantasy power metal combined with classical music, including choir, renaissance, and baroque elements. Over the years they have released a few demos with various lineups. They now have a solid quintet of musicians that features Tomi Viiltola (Vocals), Marco Sneck (Keyboards), Jari Satta (Guitars), Jukka Jokikokko (Bass) and Janne Kusmin (Drums).
Their sophomore album “Legends & Lore” was recorded in various studios and was mixed by a legendary Tampere-based power metal mixer Jussi Kulomaa. Fans can hit the play button, close their eyes to dive into a fantasy world where might and magic rules, and let the music grow on them.
“We expect this album to be interesting for fans of symphonic power metal since it’s filled with nice melodies combined with metal edge and filled with layers of choirs, orchestral instruments, shredding, and renaissance & baroque feeling!” says band founder and keyboardist Marco Sneck.
The 10-song concept album 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.” #FightingForFantasyMetal” says Marco Sneck.
Starting the band’s first quest for new fans, they are unveiling the first single “The Shadowleader”, the third track on the full-length and one earliest songs written by CHAMELION.
“Lyrically, it tells a story about the main villain of the album. It’s a neoclassical tune with baroque elements throughout the song. Also to mention, our guitarist Jari makes some serious guitar sweeping here!” adds Sneck.
