Female-fronted symphonic/power metal band Crystal Gates are proud to release their first single & video for ‘My Glorious Fall‘, a track taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Torment & Wonder: The Ways Of The Lonely Ones‘, which is due for release on July 29th, 2022 via Wormholedeath worldwide.
The band about their first single:
“‘My Glorious Fall‘ is a journey into the elusive and magical realms of inspiration, deep inside the composer’s state of mind as they reach their ultimate goal: the discovery of a newborn song. It is about loneliness – the central concept of the album – and cherished memories, but it is also about feelings of accomplishment and hopes for the future.”
Crystal Gates is a Latvia-based symphonic power metal band formed in Montevideo, Uruguay in 2013 by Benjamín Machín and Carolina Pérez. After two years of writing, arranging, and recording, the duo released their first studio work, the six-song EP ‘A Quest For Life‘ in 2015.
The single ‘Shadowborn‘ followed in 2017, bringing more international attention to the band, and the opportunity to play bigger shows and festivals, sharing the stage with bands like Epica, Xandria, Masterplan, Anneke Van Giersbergen’s “The Gentle Storm”, Blackoustic, The Agonist and Fates Warning.
Now, after working hard through challenging times, the band has finished their first full-length album: ‘Torment & Wonder: The Ways Of The Lonely Ones‘, their most ambitious effort to date. ‘Torment & Wonder‘ promises a bright future.
