Vivaldi Metal Project‘s album “The Four Seasons” is released on July 22nd 2016 via Pride & Joy Music. The project is a symphonic-metal opera based on Antonio Vivaldi’s Baroque masterwork “The Four Seasons”, featuring more than 130 amazing metal and classical artists, orchestra, a string quartet and three choirs from all over the world. The album features 14 tracks – all the movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s original score plus two original new songs written by Mistheria. The impressive roster of artists probably makes this titanic album the biggest all-star project ever!
A cast of ten arrangers joined Mistheria creating epic and memorable music, combining a standard metal band lineup with strings, orchestra and choir. Full arrangers/artists roster at vivaldimetalproject.com
It took more than 2 years of intensive non-stop hard work to get the album done. Mixed and mastered by Ivan Moni Bidin at “Artesonika” recording studio in Italy and assisted by Fabio D’Amore, the album is a full 75 minutes of intense, passionate, fascinating, powerful and majestic experience!
