|It's A.D. 2055 and
most big cities of planet earth are either flooded with
tsunamis or destroyed by earthquakes and fire. The whole
infrastructure and communication system has broken down.
The destruction is total. A small group of survivors leaves
for a quest to find a sacred place known as "The Land
Of New Hope". It is an old fairytale that has been
told since decades but very few has actually ever believed
of its existence. They travel far on a journey that is full
of dangers and come across a seer who guides them further.
She explains to them that "The Land Of New Hope"
does exist but it is guarded by a Keeper and only those
who are pure in heart can pass him. They wander further
towards their ultimate destiny
Former Stratovarius main songwriter and guitarist, Timo Tolkki has a new album - a magniloquent metal / rock opera with some cinematic orchestrations to bring back the Stratovarius original sound in a more symphonic and grandiose fashion. Tolkki managed to gather some of the most renowned singers around, with particular focus on one of the most talented young female singers Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE) who has the lion's share of the lead vocals on the album. "The Land of New Hope" opens a new chapter in Tolkki's career and perspectives, with the artist regaining full artistic credibility with his own music and performances. A stunning artwork was specially created for this project by Stanis W. Decker.
