The Neo-Classical Firestorm from Valparaíso, Chile, Abstract Symphony, launch the first video, ‘The Hidden Empire‘, from their upcoming album ‘Tartaria: The Empire Hidden From History‘. The song features the vocal prowess of none other than Mark Boals who’s iconic performance on Yngwie Malmsteen‘s ‘Trilogy‘ album has set a mark for Neo-Classical albums ever since. Boals delivers another classic performance on ‘The Hidden Empire‘ which fits perfectly with the high-velocity progressions of the band.
Founder Esteban Ulloa has set a standard with his writing and feels strongly about introducing the new single to the global masses:
“The new Single is a great way for more people to get to know the band since Mark is on vocals. Having total freedom to write music for the band and not having any boundaries and having all the support from RFL records makes it all better. With ‘The Hidden Empire‘ I made this song thinking about Mark Boals and how he would sing it, but never in my wildest dreams thought he would to end up singing it. Since this song is a couple of years old already I have always felt music deeply even before I played guitar, a dream come true for me and all of us in the band indeed . All of my influences came together in the best way in this song I´m sure that fans of Yngwie, Ring of Fire, Royal Hunt and Shining Black are gonna love it.”
The once Tribute band for Yngwie Malmsteen, created by guitarist Esteban Ulloa V., rapidly developed into a songwriting, melodic thunderstorm.
Over the course of their career, Abstract Symphony have been distributing their artistic talent, whether on stage or in the studio, across South America, while also being able to reach beyond the continent into Europe with their masterful recordings.

Later on, in 2018, Abstract Symphony made their first official video to one of the high point songs out of their debut record, ‘The Master Of Sorrow‘.
