EVIL MASQUERADE: New Album Audio Samples Posted Online

Danish symphonic metallers EVIL MASQUERADE have finalized the track listing for their second album, "Theatrical Madness", due on April 25 via Frontiers Records.

One of the tracks on the CD ("Witches Chant") was written by William Shakespeare and set to music by Henrik Flyman. People familiar with theatre and poetry might recognize it to be the first scene of the fourth act from "Macbeth".

The music has been described once again as "theatrical metal," with one leg in the old classic metal terrain and the other exploring more modern landscapes of progressive music. Added to this are the influences from musicals and classical music. This blend is what makes EVIL MASQUERADE unique.

Commented guitar player Henrik Flyman: "This is the best album I've ever done. With 'Theatrical Madness' we show the potentials of EVIL MASQUERADE in many new ways. The album is more homogeneous and varied at the same time. This without leaving the metal domains one inch." Singer Henrik Brockmann (ex-ROYAL HUNT) added: "As the first album, the music is something that will keep on showing new aspects, and every time it's put into the CD player, a new detail will appear in the ears of the listener that was not heard when played before. This album keeps on surprising."
