On February 20th, 2021, the Finnish/Greek symphonic metal band Scarlet Desire released their new single “Maiden of Snow”.
An official lyric video of the single “MAIDEN OF SNOW” is now available on their official YouTube channel!
SCARLET DESIRE’s music is dark, romantic gothic metal with symphonic elements like symphonic orchestration and powerful female opera vocals. The female vocalist Danae Komodromou has a classical background and she is an educated soprano. Her vocals are very powerful and she has a very big vocal range (3 and half octaves) and she can also sing extremely high notes and different styles when needed. The result is very classical-sounding powerful symphonic metal with a dark and unique sound.
The song was originally recorded a long time ago, but was changed, produced and enhanced along the way to be what it is now. Oliver Palotai, keyboardist from Kamelot, brought beautiful orchestrations to the song and Heikki Pöyhiä from Finland did some growl vocals as well.
Mixing and mastering was done by Jacob Hansen, who has been recording, mixing and mastering some of the best metal bands out there like Amaranthe, Delain, Volbeat and Kamelot for example. He really understood our sound and made the song sound big and powerful.
