Spanish power metal act Dark Moor have revealed the album artwork and title for the long awaited follow up to the 2010 release "Ancestral Romance." The new album will be entitled "Ars Musica," and will be issued on June 18, 2013 via Scarlet Records. The artwork for the release can be viewed below.

The band's announcement reads: "Symphonic Power Metal masters Dark Moor are glad to announce the release of their new album 'Ars Musica', following the success of their previous, critically acclaimed effort 'Ancestral Romance'. Dark Moor have taken another step forward in their career, forging a more identifiable sound and expanding their songwriting in multiple directions. They still pay homage to the Spanish cultural heritage in songs such as 'First Lance Of Spain', ‘Gara & Jonay’ and ‘El Último Rey’, but elsewhere they go more personal, still giving high priority to their trademark melodies and elaborate harmonies. Talented singer Alfred Romero offers his best performance to date, whilst orchestrations are less classical and more grandiose and epic. 'Ars Musica' was once again produced by Luigi Stefanini (Rhapsody Of Fire, Labyrinth, Vision Divine) and will hit the stores on June 18th, 2013. Follow www.dark-moor.com for the latest news."

The band previously announced that soprano vocalist Berenice Musa (Tears of Martyr) will once again be the guest vocalist for the album. More...

Dark Moor Comments On "Ancestral Romance"

Madrid, Spain power metal act Dark Moor has commented on the its forthcoming studio album, titled "Ancestral Romance." "Ancestral Romance" was recorded at New Sin Studios in Italy with producer Luigi Stefanini. The band commented by saying:

"We are very pleased with the outcome of our new album, 'Ancestral Romance'. We have been working for months on this new work and recording with our usual producer, Luigi Stefanini, has been the culmination of all that effort.

"This new album is explores deeper and gets further in our own style, which became more consolidated in our last releases. In this way, the whole orchestra and choir work has been developed and is in perfect symbiosis with rock instruments. As a result the album has passages of great drama and all the expressiveness we wanted to start the work with.

"The theme of 'Ancestral Romance' revolves around Spain's culture and history, as is well established in pieces like 'Oh, Wretched Me!', based on the 'Life Is A Dream' by Calderon de la Barca , 'Tilt At Windmills' based on Don Quixote, 'Mio Cid' inspired by the legend of the Spanish hero El Cid, 'Alaric de Marnac', an adaptation of Paul Naschy's latest book of the same title, 'Love From Stone' which tells of the legend of the lovers of Teruel, 'Gadir' inspired by the first city founded in Europe: Cádiz, or 'Ritual Fire Dance', adaptation of 'Danza del Fuego' by Manuel de Falla, Spanish composer.

"All lyrics have been written by the Spanish poet Francisco José García, our usual collaborator. Thanks to his great work, Alfred was able to connect very well with the spirit of each song and do a great job of interpretation, emphasizing and increasing his natural baritone timbre. This album also features Dark Moor's first song in Spanish, 'La Canción del Pirata', where the band has put music to the famous poem by Espronceda."
