STRATOVARIUS PUBLISH “ENIGMA: INTERMISSION 2” WITH 3 BRAND NEW SONGS + 4 ORCHESTRAL VERSIONS

Spread the metal:

STRATOVARIUS, one of the leading bands of the Melodic Power Metal scene are back – with an album full of red-hot and ultra-rare songs.

“Enigma: Intermission 2” includes three new songs as well as – for the first time in the band’s history – orchestral arrangements of four carefully selected Stratovarius hits. The album follows the same concept as “Intermission”, which was released  17 years earlier between the two Stratovarius classics “Infinite” and “Elements”, and additionally contains nine very rare, hard to find power metal beads.

With over 30 minutes of brand new music, 50 minutes of rarities,  “ENIGMA: Intermission 2” is definitely more “killer” than just “filler”.   “Enigma” and “Oblivion” in 2018 and thus fresh from the studio, are without a doubt two blasting songs. Both combine an epic melody with a bombastic chorus and hard guitar riffs and give back exactly what Stratovarius are: Symphonic Metal at its best! In addition, both tracks are reminiscent of the song “Unbreakable”, from the album “Nemesis” (2013) – the most streamed song in the history of the band.

Also, “Kill It With Fire” and “Cast Away,” both previously only available for Japanese fans are without a doubt two killer songs that make “ENIGMA Intermission 2”  a killer release.

The official  stream for “Oblivion” is now available on the earMUSIC YouTube channel:

“Oblivion” can be streamed immediately and downloaded from https://stratovarius.lnk.to/OblivionPR

On 80 minutes the Power Metal greats showcase Timo Kotipelto’s powerful and emotional voice at its best. “ENIGMA: Intermission 2” is similar to a studio album far more than a simple compilation.
The album will be released on September 28, 2018 as a CD digipak and digital at earMUSIC.
