Orchestral/operatic metal collective Melted Space is proud to announce a newly-signed worldwide deal with Sensory Records for the late Summer release of the outfit's sophomore full-length opus, "The Great Lie." The following press release was issued about the band:
"Melted Space is the creation of French composer Pierre le Pape, who bears a master degree in classical music and movie scores, here creating a modern opera that takes over the classical codes, including numerous characters, scenario, powerful orchestral arrangements and varied ambiances, all set to skilled and catchy songwriting and amazing casting.
"The new Melted Space album, 'The Great Lie,' will feature fourteen prestigious and unexpected singers, joined by seven talented guest musicians and The City of Prague Philarmonic Orchestra. Together, this cast will create an epic saga as powerful as moving. By mixing the tradition of the classic opera with infectious heavy metal, The Great Lie promises to set a new milestone in the genre.

Powerful metal meets the refined essence of movie soundtrack-style movements, and through the embracing of various influences, citing Within Temptation and Dimmu Borgir, the band has seduced a wide audience.
