More names are listed below.

Frode Hovd says: ‘The idea behind Aldaria started years ago. I have always wanted to create something this big, and to get the chance to work with some of the best talents in the world. I started to work on Aldaria when my band Memorized Dreams had to take a break due to workcommitments and other things.’

“Aldaria is the place and dimension between Heaven & Hell, Where sinners come to be redeemed, or forever be banished to Hell. There are signs of a darker time ahead, with torn and slayed angels falling from the sky in broad daylight. If evil will find foothold in Aldaria, this will be the end of all light. Someone will have to find the lightbringer, the chosen to enter Aldaria, and from within: find the Key to end all wars”
