Twilight Force Posts “Flight Of The Sapphire Dragon” Video

Twilight Force – the epic adventure metal band from Sweden – released Nuclear Blast debut album “Heroes Of Mighty Magic” on August 26th. While on tour with Sonata Arctica, today the band reveals a music video for “Flight Of The Sapphire Dragon.”

The newly unleashed clip was directed by Magnificent Beast and can be seen below. The Twilight Force also revealed:

“This song is teeming with dwarven folklore, and thus is much influenced by their ancient instruments and tonal language. Their folkish traditions had a significant influence on the creation of the song and we had to study many elder scripts to be able to harness the essence of dwarven musical fundaments. The song is a merry, skittish and exciting journey through the legends surrounding the Sapphire Dragon.”

Fabio Leone And Joakim Broden Appearing On New Twilight Force Album

Swedish adventure metal band Twilight Force is set to release new studio album “Heroes Of Mighty Magic” on August 26th through Nuclear Blast.

Today, the band can proudly announce the guest bards on this forthcoming record. Fabio Lione from Rhapsody Of Fire joined on the track “There And Back Again” while Joakim Brodén from Sabaton appears on the the title track.

Joakim commented: “When one of the best bands to come out of Sweden in a long time turns out to be your friends and people you have played with many times over the years, it’s quite easy to feel proud about being invited to sing on the title-track on their new album, fantastic!”

The band adds: “It is an honour to have two of the most powerful, esteemed and renowned voices of the genre appear on ‘Heroes Of Mighty Magic.’ Joakim Brodén and Fabio Lione are two very different sonic entities. They each bring something very unique and captivating to our tonal landscape. Our old and revered friend Joakim appears on the title track of the album, and provides an excellent contrast to Chrileon’s voice, at just the right moment in the song. Nothing in the world even comes close to Joakim’s unbelievably mighty voice!

“Fabio did an amazing performance on ‘There And Back Again.’ He entered the Twilight Forge with a brave and proud mind, emerged victoriously and left us in complete awe. His familiar voice provided the track with an absolutely magical contribution. We feel really humbled and grateful to have been given the opportunity to create something alongside these two titans of the genre!”
