Following the 2015 Sensory Records release of the debut album, "The Great Lie," France's epic metal opera collective Melted Space has issued special remixed versions of several tracks from the album through a new digital EP entitled "Remix Remodel." The EP is now streaming in the player below. Simultaneously, a video clip for the revamped version of the song "Titania" was launched.
Melted Space is the ambitious venture forged by French composer PierreLe Pape. After the outfit's European tour with Symphony X and Myrath, the live lineup of Melted Space decided to reconstruct and remix several songs with vocal contributions from the live crew from the venture. These three new versions have been collected in "Remix Remodel," with new track versions as remixed by Beau Hill (producer, Europe, Alice Cooper, Ratt) on "No Need To Fear," After Forever's Joost Van Den Broeck for "Lost Souls From The Other Side" and François-Maxime Boutault (producer, Dagoba, others) for "Titania," with mastering handled at Fascination Street Studio by Tony Lindgren.
The video clip for song "Titania" - the remixed version of the track, found on "Remix Remodel" - was directed by Rusty J. Matalou in a German Expressionism style, bringing a new visual dimension to Melted Space, and extending Pierre Le Pape's musical universe to the outfit's fanbase.

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.
"Initiated by pianist and composer Pierre Le Pape, from the city of Troyes, Melted Space stands as the first French metal opera boasting the air of a huge choral fresco, bringing together numerous female and male singers and musicians from the international metal scene. 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. Melted Space's music is inspired by traditional symphonic metal but is also rooted in the black and death metal scenes, each coming to play depending on what action that is taking place within the story that Pierre is telling us.
