The band on the new single:
“Talking about Enigma and trying to give a musical illustration of its direction, we are definitely talking about a song created with the central idea being the coexistence of the known sound of Fallen Arise and the new heavy aesthetics that the band wants to add into its music. This new “mix” is easily perceived by listening to the airy and mellow sounds of the impressive heavy riffs and breakdowns, a musical motive presented first to “Adeline” album and now fully matured and fully integrated into the band’s style. The use of the orchestra, shows allegiance in the original roots, independent the innovations it tries. Something not clear also in the two previous albums, is the feeling of the “battle” between keys and guitar in “Enigma”.”

On this new offering, the band wanted their music to sound as contemporary as possible, but at the same time to remain faithful to their melodic/symphonic roots. The main part of the overall arrangement and recordings took place in Athens, at Soundflakes Recording Studios with John Mcris being a close associate of the band and the sound engineer for the main body of this new work. Part of the recordings took place at the Rock Factory Studios in Siena, Italy by Nikos Zannis and Davide Fatemi as sound engineers. The mixing process took place at Hell’s Kitchen Recording Studio with John Mcris as mixing engineer. For the mastering process, FALLEN ARISE collaborated with Fascination Street Studios and Tony Lindgren as mastering engineer. The album artwork is created by Paul Culley and the layout by Miron Theodoridis.
FALLEN ARISE were formed in 2009, combining a theatrical atmosphere with a progressive approach and a heavy-metal-alike heaviness. So far, the band have shared the stage with NIGHTWISH, PARADISE LOST, MOONSPELL, LEAVES’ EYES, OUTLOUD, just to name a few.
