Quote from Pietro Paolo Lunesu (guitars):
„Breaking The Chains“ represents the song where the man breaks his old mental patterns, breaks the chains that imprison him in his sad reality, but at the same time with the hope of becoming a man with positive thoughts and concrete life goals, I think the song has one of the most beautiful refrains ever for the music of the Wonders!
Quote from Bob Katsionis (keyboards, production, mix):
„Breaking The Chains“ is one of my favorite songs of the album, combining my own Greek Power Metal elements with the Italian Hard Rock/AOR finezza of the band! The video was once again made both real footage of the band and AI generated landscapes and animation to fit the whole traveling beyond space and time concept of the album. I love it!

Quote from Austin:
„I’m so proud today for the release of the debut album ‚The Gates of Aramore‘!
The music on this album has been a passion of mine that I’ve been working on for some years and it’s amazing to see it finally in the hands and ears of metal fans all over the world. The reception so far has been great and I’m thankful for the chance to make this contribution to the Power Metal World, a genre that means so much to me. This album has it all, including famous Power Metal guests that you know and love and support from a timeless and important record label, LIMB MUSIC!

PRYDAIN – new single & video out now!
The second single from the upcoming album is called ‚Quest of the Fallen‘. This song is about an exiled warrior, seeking redemption by fighting back against the meddlesome gods who have been terrorizing the kingdom. The lyrical themes were partly inspired by Fred Saberhagen’s ‚Sword‘ series of books from the 80s and 90s.
Quote from Austin (guitars):
„I’d had the ideas for the main musical themes for a while, and when the opportunity arose to have Jens Ludwig from Edguy as a guest, it was easy to figure out which direction to take it from there.
This one was polished off with a little help from the amazing Marius Danielsen, of ‚Valley Doom‘ fame, and can be a seen as a tribute to epic power metal in general. I hope you like it!! 🤘🏼“

WONDERS – first single & video out now!
The first digital single and video ‚One Million Miles‘ from the new WONDERS album ‚Beyond The Mirage‘ (release June 16, 2023) is out now!
Quote by Pietro Paolo Lunesu (guitars):
„‚One Million Miles‘ is the first song I wrote for the new WONDERS album, a concentrate of power and melody destined to be played in big arenas and stages. I’m sure the melodies of this song will catch the attention of new fans!“
Quote by Bob Katsionis (keyboards, production, mix):
„Creating this video was not an easy task as we faced various logistical challenges. The Lunesu brothers and Marco & Luca were all on separate tours making it impossible for us to get together in Greece like we had on our previous video shootings. However, we were able to create a stunning and captivating video that perfectly captures the spirit of ‚One Million Miles‘ and shows the passion and energy of our performance. A fast-paced and melodic song full of power and emotion. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it!“

PRYDAIN – The Gates of Aramore is coming June 2, 2023!
Austin Dixon had been working on the song ideas for PRYDAIN over several years, but the real work began to happen during the Covid pandemic. Since no suitable musicians with the talent and enthusiasm for melodic power metal could be found locally and the Covid lockdown was also having ist effects, Austin started approaching some of his favourite musicians via internet in order to bring his songs to life.
First guy aboard was Pyramaze keyboardist Jonah Weingarten. Austin says „I’ve loved Pyramaze since their wonderful album ‚Legend of the Bone Carver‘. His orchestrations really helped bring the visions of my guitar riffs and structures to life.“
Katagory V mastermind Dustin Mitchell, another local Utah musician, contributed some initial bass tracks, and Firewind’s Bob Katsionis „has been on my radar since he blew me away live in Salt Lake City a few years ago with his dual-shred solos between guitar and keyboard, so I reached out.“
Bob agreed to produce and mix Prydain. He also brought in fellow Greek countryman Mike Livas (Silent Winter, Keepers of Jericho, Timo Tolkki) to sing. Next, Austin dared to approach three of his favourite guitarists to see if they would each contribute a solo: Mikael Dahl (Crystal Eyes), Jimmy Hedlund (Falconer), and Jens Ludwig (Edguy). „To my surprise, they were all up for it right away! This collaboration with so many of my heroes is the coolest aspect.“
MIKE LIVAS – Vocals (Silent Winter)
AUSTIN DIXON – Lead & Rhythm Guitars (Sonic Prophecy)
JONAH WEINGARTEN – Keyboards & Orchestration (Pyramaze)
BOB KATSIONIS – Lead & Rhythm Guitars, Bass (ex Firewind, Wonders, Outloud, Stray Gods, Warrior Path)
Mikael Dahl (Crystal Eyes) – guitar solo
Jens Ludwig (Edguy) – guitar solo
Jimmy Hedlund (Falconer) – guitar solo
Dustin Mitchell (Katagory V) – bass guitar
John Yelland (Judicator) – additional vocals
David Åkesson (Qantice, Moonlight Agony, Symphonity) – additional vocals
