Here is the official lyric video for the track ‘Guardians Of The Light’ from the album “Land Of Light”, the debut album by Symphonic Metal/ Opera Metal band Aldaria which will be released through Pride & Joy Music on March 24th. The video can be seen below.

“Land Of Light” is the highly anticipated debut release by the new all-star metal opera Aldaria! The album contains 11 epic tracks in the vein of old Helloween & Avantasia, with fast-paced hymns to beautiful ballads. The band is masterminded by guitarist Frode Hovd from the Norwegian metal group Memorized Dreams who was joined by a host of world known guests from the metal community such as Fabio Lione (Rhapsody Of Fire, voc), Todd Michael Hall (Riot V, voc), Rick Altzi (Masterplan, voc), Mathias Blad (Falconer, voc), Jonas Heidgert (Dragonland, voc), Jimmy Hedlund (Falconer, guit.), Roland Grapow (Masterplan, guit.), Mike LePond, (Symphony X, bass), Uli Kusch (ex Helloween, dr.), Peter Danielsen (Darkest Sins, synths) and Mistheria (Vivaldi Metal Project, keys).

The full cast of musicians performing on this release is listed below.

The album has been in production for over two years.

Produced and fully written by Hovd himself, this conceptional album was mixed by Roland Grapow (Masterplan) at Grapow Studios and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Primal Fear, Volbeat, Doro etc) at Hansen Studios. Artwork by Stan W. Decker (Jorn, Serious Black…).
