The album finds Tarja going to raw, personal places in her lyrics. Opening herself up more than ever before, she says she was left feeling naked by her honesty, but also pleased at where she had gone with her words.
The first look at the album, the brand-new song “Dead Promises”, is all this and more. Matching the stunning power of Tarja’s voice with a thunderous guitar, the aggression she speaks of is brought to the front, not threatening to shatter something fragile, but reinforcing its power. “I really like how the guitar sounds: in your face,”she says. “If I’m singing powerfully, I need something powerful behind me so that I don’t feel like I am left alone.”
Fans will find that the album includes a different version of the song with guest vocals by Björn “Speed” Strid of Soilwork.
