The second opus from classical metal ensemble LOST SYMPHONY, aptly titled Chapter II, is available today.
“The times are certainly a little weird and I don’t think ‘Chapter II’ could be any more appropriate,” says LOST SYMPHONY founder Benny Goodman. “There was a lot of time and effort put into making this music so that it takes you somewhere. From start to finish, there is always a light through the darkness.”
Primarily composed before, yet eerily perfect for the age of the Pandemic, the eight-track album strains beauty through aural apocalypse. The collective founded by multi-instrumentalist and producer Benny Goodman and comprising his brother Brian (compositions, arrangement), Cory Paza (bass, guitar), Kelly Kereliuk (guitar), Paul Lourenco (drums), and Siobhán Cronin (violin, viola, electric violin) has once again welcomed a revolving cast of virtuosos to join them for the next phase. This installment includes Marty Friedman, David Ellefson, Jeff Loomis, Bumblefoot and many more.
The album has produced three singles thus far:
- “Conflagration” – featuring Oli Herbert, Matt LaPierre and Conrad Simon
- “No Exit” featuring David Ellefson, Jeff Loomis and Marty Friedman
- “Murder of Crows” featuring Jon Donais, Matt Bachand and Jimi Bell
