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.”

Carried by noble steeds across barren plains, they have been the nomadic outriders and protectors of their kingdom of Whardas for as long as any human can remember. ‘Riders Of the Dawn’ is a triumphant and fast paced hymn, permeated by chanting voices honouring the splendor of these heroic equestrians. We look forward to tell the tale of their victories on the battlefield together with you! Now, sound the horns of triumph!”
