The mysterious and faceless metal band from Italy will release the new single “Alexandria” with the extraordinary collaboration of Magdalena Lee (TEARS OF MAGDALENA) who created an emotional duet with their permanent vocalist, Nicoletta Rosellini.

The new song, full of epic elements, has been composed in honor of the ancient splendor of the city Alexandria of Egypt; this track features the fascinating voice of Nicoletta Rosellini and the impressive operatic power of Magdalena Lee.

Magdalena is a classical vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer; she graduated from Saint Petersburg as music teacher, chorus conductor, classical violinist and classical pianists. Also, she studied opera singing with Juri Statnik (Moscow), Irina Gavrilovici (Vienna) and Anna Karlsson (Finnish National Opera). Magdalena is also the lead singer of the symphonic metal band Tears of Magdalena from Helsinki.

Listen to the new single


ALEXANDRIA

Perhaps it’s a bad omen
the flickering of the stars
Perhaps it’s a bad omen
sun’s path to the west
(Alexandria)
Everything that flourishes
everything that vanishes
everything that is timeless.
(Alexandria)
but forgotten forever

You’ll shine again
Alexandria
like the moon through the clouds
Alexandria
Alexandria
You’ll shine again
like the crowded chariot of the sun
that spreads the morning light
on the tears of lost men
on the vanity of kings

Like an evil shaman
the desert wind drives
from the sacred willows
ibis and Gods

City of a world
that builds and destroys
Lady of deceptions
Lady of illusions

Cross-roads of poetry
geometry and dust
City of eternal waiting
for everyone and no one

City of side streets
crossed in destiny

Perhaps it’s a bad omen
the flickering of the stars
Perhaps it’s a bad omen
sun’s path to the west
Everything that flourishes
everything that vanishes
everything that is timeless
but forgotten forever
You’ll shine again
like the moon through the clouds
Alexandria
Alexandria
You’ll shine again
like the crowded chariot of the sun
that spreads the morning light
on the tears of lost men
on the vanity of kings

Like an evil shaman
the desert wind drives
from the sacred willows
ibis and Gods

City of a world
that builds and destroys
Lady of deceptions
Lady of illusions

Cross-roads of poetry
geometry and dust
City of eternal waiting
for everyone and no one

City of side streets
crossed in destiny

Perhaps it’s a bad omen
the flickering of the stars
Perhaps it’s a bad omen
sun’s path to the west
Everything flourishes
everything vanishes
everything is timeless
but forgotten forever
