Multinational Symphonic Power Metal Band Asterise Releases Debut album December 2nd – First Single ‘Falling Stars’ Out Now

Multinational symphonic power metal band Asterise is set to release their debut album ‘Two Worlds‘ on December 2nd 2022 via Finnish record label Inverse Records.

The first single ‘Falling Stars‘, which features Jimmy Hedlund (Falconer), Tristan Harders (Terra Atlantica), Arnaud Menard (Marius Danielsen’s Legend of Valley Doom) is released today.

The mastermind behind the band Bartlomiej Mezynski comments:
Asterise is not a typical Power/Speed Metal project. I wanted it to sound different, to take the listener on an emotional trip. Of course it still has fast guitar riffs, high vocals and amazing shred guitar solos – everything thanks to great guest appearances. The idea to have multiple vocalists on the album was heavily inspired by Avantasia. The lyrics on the other hand, by old Stratovarius albums. You will hear a lot of references to albums like Visions, Destiny or The Metal Opera 1&2. With everyone presenting different styles of singing and playing, we were able to create an interesting material that will be stuck in your mind for a long time.

Biography:
Asterise is multinational Power Metal “opera” project. The project started in 2018 when Bartlomiej Mezynski and Dionysis Maniatakos joined forces to create something fresh and new, however which will also refer to the classic bands like Stratovarius, Gamma Ray or Avantasia. The lyrics are about a person being trapped between two worlds. Souls being locked between good and bad sides. It tells a little story about different states of minds. Showing a journey from being lost, being deceived by own desires, searching for home and finaly reaching the top of the world and fulfilling the destiny. While listening to the album you will experience great emotional trip thanks to a lot of slow, beautiful orchestra and piano parts. The journey starts right here.
