In the meantime, practice your battle cries, sharpen your swords, and dust off your spell tomes. Make sure you are prepared to join and experience our triptych adventure."

Twilight Force Splits With Chrileon

Swedish power metal act Twilight Force announced the sudden departure of vocalist Christian Eriksson a/k/a "Chrileon." The band promises to proceed with no interruption, naming ReinXeed vocalist Tommy Johannsson (guitarist for Sabaton) as temporary replacement for upcoming shows and while the band seeks a permanent replacement.

The announcement reads: "Dear friends, followers and apprentices. We now bring you tidings of great importance. So please, stay a while, and listen.

"Our singer Chrileon is no longer a part of Twilight Force.

"The Twilight Kingdoms have been ravaged by turbulent times. Twilight Force has in recent times travelled far and wide, searching answers to ancient conondrums and mystical prophecies.
We have done battle numerous times during these journeys; and always fought back to back, ever resilient, and ever prosperous.

"Everything to bring back order, peace and magic to the Twilight Kingdoms. More...

Sunburst Out Of ProgPower USA XVIII

ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston announced that Greek power/progressive act Sunburst was dropped from the XVIII roster, due to a VISA issues, in which a particular USCIS agent made an unusual and specific "all-encompassing" request for evidence that was impossible to satisfy in the time left. Harveston also announced that Brazil's Daydream XI will replace Sunburst.

Harveston posted the following announcement: "It is with extreme frustration and disappointment I must announce that Sunburst (Greece) will not be performing at ProgPower USA XVIII. Despite having provided the same type and kind of evidence that has obtained approvals for not only ProgPower USA bands over the last decade, but for well over one hundred other bands submitted by Marc/Play America, one agent at the USCIS (United States Customs & Immigration Services) has deemed our evidence insufficient. Given the all-encompassing breadth of that specific agent's demands (more than ever have been seen by either Marc or myself) in an RFE (Request for Evidence) in our careers, there is literally no hope of satisfying those demands. Sunburst, Marc, & I have all agreed it would be pointless to continue to fight this hopeless battle.

"Rest assured I have every intention of having Sunburst back as soon as possible. They are an amazing band and deserve to be on the ProgPower USA stage. The band is understandably disappointed, but also understand the circumstances cannot be helped.

"I want to calm the fears of those concerned about other bands performing this year. I have already obtained visa approvals for all bands I am specifically responsible for performing on Friday and Saturday. Sunburst was the last band we were waiting on for visa approval. All bands that have been submitted for Wednesday and Thursday so far have also been approved. More...

Twilight Force Posts New Music Vdieo

Twilight Force - the epic adventure metal band from Sweden - released Nuclear Blast debut album "Heroes Of Mighty Magic" on August 26th. While on tour with Sonata Arctica, today the band reveals a music video for "Flight Of The Sapphire Dragon."

The newly unleashed clip was directed by Magnificent Beast and can be seen below. The Twilight Force also revealed:

"This song is teeming with dwarven folklore, and thus is much influenced by their ancient instruments and tonal language. Their folkish traditions had a significant influence on the creation of the song and we had to study many elder scripts to be able to harness the essence of dwarven musical fundaments. The song is a merry, skittish and exciting journey through the legends surrounding the Sapphire Dragon." More...
