Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DIO DISCIPLES) and Mark Boals (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ROYAL HUNT) are among the guest musicians who will appear on the new metal opera "The Legend Of Valley Doom". Also scheduled to appear are vocalists Artur Almeida (ATTICK DEMONS), George Tsalikis (ZANDELLE) and John Yelland (DISFORIA, JUDICATOR) and Elisa C. Martin (HAMKA, DARK MOOR, FAIRYLAND), bassist Giorgio Novarino (CRYSTAL EMPIRE, BEJELIT) and guitarist Kristian Tjelle (NOCUTURNAL ILLUSION).
The story takes place in a land called Valley Doom. There are rumors about the rising of a new great evil, and it is coming their way. It's fortold in the ancient scrolls that when Valley Doom's future and existence is at stake, thechosen one will rise. His name is the warrior king.
Part 1 of The Legend of Valley Doom is about the King and the wizard named Arigo's journey to find the Warrior King and fulfill the prophecy.
The Metal Opera is in three parts. There's also a fantasy book on the way that digs deeper into the story about Valley Doom.
