Okay, Tarja’s new album, Colours in the Dark, came out in August 30 and I’ve recently got my hands on it.
The rock and metal genre are still there, you can clearly hear it in almost every single track, but somehow it’s more classical, more symphonic. Slightly different from her previous work but you can identify her signature in it.
I’m on a internal battle to find my favourite track since 500 Letters and Medusa are two songs I’m totally in love with. It’s going to take a while before I can confirm which track won the battle 😀
And I would love to hear an orchestral version of Deliverance. That song is simply epic when it comes to violins and percussion and everything orchestral-related.
For those who already enjoyed Tarja’s solo career, this album is simply amazing. I recommend it deeply ’cause this album defines her own style and signature.
