MELTED SPACE, the new metal opera forged by French composer Pierre le Pape and featuring a massive cast of luminaries from across the metal world, will release its debut album, The Great Lie, through Sensory Records in two weeks. In advance of the record’s street date, a lyric video for the track “Terrible Fight” has been released through an exclusive premiere at New Noise Magazine.
MELTED SPACE‘s The Great Lie debut features internationally-revered vocalists and musicians including members of Morbid Angel, Mayhem, Sunn O))), Dark Tranquillity, Orphaned Land, Shining, Ayreon, Sirenia and the entire cast of The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Founding creator and composer Pierre le Pape, who bears a master degree in classical music and movie scores, creates a modern opera that takes over the classical codes, including numerous characters, scenario, powerful orchestral arrangements and varied ambiances, all set to skilled and catchy songwriting and amazing casting. Together, this cast has created an epic saga as powerful as moving, and by mixing the tradition of the classic opera with infectious heavy metal, The Great Lie promises to set a new milestone in the genre.
“Terrible Fight” features guest vocalists David Vincent (Morbid Angel), Guillaume Bideau (Mnemic), Manuel Munoz (The Old Dead Tree), Clémentine Delauney (Visions Of Atlantis), Virginie Goncalves (Kells), and Lucie Blatrier, and a guitar solo by Adrian Martinot. The majestic lyric video for the song was created by Hicham Haddaji (Strychneen Studio).
