Today Metalunderground.com is pleased to bring you a full preview of the entire album. Hear all the tracks from "Mythmaker" in the player below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
The band comments on the newly released album:
"Both the themes and the lyrics on Mythmaker are 'epic:' they talk about past times, classical age and especially the ancient Greek world, with its myths and literature playing a big role and happily tying in with the music. Themes such as decline, decadence, fall of human societies through the ages are recurrent in our lyrics; I would say that we are keen on a decadent way to being epic; we sing more about loss and failure than victories."

Hailing from Brescia, Italy long-running progressive metal outfit Tragodia now prepares to strike back with its third full-length album this November.
While creating this new opus, the band caught the attention of Kolony Records, who signed Trogodia for the release of "Mythmaker." The album is due out November 5th, 2013. The following press release was also issued:
"A brand new episode of challenging musicianship from Tragodia, and hitting harder than on their previous albums, on Mythmaker the band embarks on an exciting trip into the realms of epic, merging the most diverse musical influences in what sounds like a companion to modern heavy metal. Building on classic metal twin guitars attack and relentlessly pounding rhythmic structures, as well on a vocally inspired performance and haunting almost space rock-driven melodies, Tragodia crafts it's most convincing opus so far. Mythmaker was recorded this Spring at Elfo Studio in Piacenza with producer Daniele Mandelli (Forgotten Tomb), and mastered at Sterling Sound in New York City by UE Nastasi (Lamb Of God, Gojira, Paradise Lost)."
The track listing is as follows:
1. A Cry Among The Stars
2. The Oracle And The Muse

Kolony Records will bring Italian act Tragodia to the label's expanding roster, as the band prepares to release its third full-length release worldwide in the coming months. Kolony comments:
"Based out of Italy’s Northern Italian commune of Brescia, Tragodia has released two full-length albums to date, beginning with their debut The Promethean Legacy, released in 2007, followed by 2012’s more expansive Theomachy. With a charging, versatile and at times progressive approach to melodic metal, a blend of vocal styles, blazing solos and straightforward sections of crushing, classic but modernized thrash-inspired songwriting fuel the band’s works.
"With the fresh steam behind their engines still hot after last year’s Theomachy album, the band began creating their next opus, in the meantime having caught the attention of Kolony Records, who signed Tragodia for the release of their nearly-completed third studio full-length. The quintet has been hard at work constructing the layered new release over recent weeks, which is guaranteed to boast the most epic tunes of the band’s creation to date."
Commented guitarist Francesco Lupi: "We are very happy to enter Kolony Records' excellent roster and to be part of this very fast growing label. Kolony Records is becoming well known for always striving to reach a balance between sheer musical quality and winning marketing strategies. We are also confident to have a killer album under our belt!” More...
