DRAGONY announce “Shadowplay” guest appearance by Zak Stevens!
Quote: “As on our first album, we are once again thrilled to welcome a very special guest on our upcoming record, and this time it is none other than former SAVATAGE and TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA vocalist and current singer for CIRCLE II CIRCLE, Zak Stevens!
One of the most prolific and charismatic singers in the history of Metal, he has lent his voice to immortal classics such as “Edge Of Thorns”, “Handful Of Rain” and “Dead Winter Dead”, has just rocked the WACKEN OPEN AIR as part of a historical two stage performance with SAVATAGE and the TSO, and we are very honored to have Zak on board for our upcoming album “Shadowplay” (out in fall 2015), where he will contribute guest vocals to the song “The Silent Sun”.”
Here is a little teaser from the upcoming album:

DRAGONY unveil collaboration with Lukas Knoebl of ILLUMINATA
Today, we’d like to continue giving you some details on our upcoming new album “Shadowplay” which will be released on 18th September 2015, and it is with great pleasure that we can announce a collaboration with Lukas Knoebl, guitarist and mastermind of Austrian Symphonic Metallers ILLUMINATA!
Lukas is not only a great guitarist and songwriter, but he is also a highly talented arranger of orchestral music, and when we were looking to take the “symphonic” aspect of our new songs to the next level, we got in contact with Lukas when we heard his amazing work on ILLUMINATA’s new album “Where Stories Unfold”. We are very happy to have him on board, as he provided some excellent orchestral arrangements for our new songs!
