CONTEST & INFO! Entering Todash

As some of the more observant of you may have noticed, we are releasing our first 
album "The Creation Of Soul" with 10 symphonic metal tracks in 2022. we'd like to  
show you some of the material that inspired us to make this. 

In the sneak peaks (available for listening here: https://archaica.bandcamp.com/track/the-creation-of-soul-album-sneak-peak )  we have clips of our song "Entering Todash" which has 2 sources of inspiration; One being The book series "The Dark Tower" by Stephen King where you have this Clint Eastwood type of western character in the Gunslinger named Roland Deschain. For the metal genre it's not particularily original 
source material to write songs about as Nightwish, Demons & Wizards and Blind Guardian are among those that have written music related the The Dark Tower already. For me it has some special significance since the main character - Roland - reminds me of my grandfather who read western books all the time and was a gunslinger in his own way. He even melted and molded his own bullets and I watched this as a kid. I finished reading the last book of The Dark Tower series around Christmas of 2011 and he passed away weeks/days later having lived through 2 world wars. May he fare well in his clearing at the end of the path.  

The other source of inspiration is the epic song that Metallica has used as their opener for at least 30 years before their concerts. (Not referring to AC/DC - It's a long way to the top, but the other one) And if you can name that song here in the comment section, then - by golly - you can win the digital version of our upcoming album! One song already finished sent to you, the rest when the album is finished sometime in 2022. This will be available through high quality download and bandcamp (app/website). 

So should you know what song Metallica open their concert with - that is not their own song - and you want the digital version of our album, then let us know the answer in the comments right here or send the answer to archaica_band@hotmail.com! 

Cheers, Michael!
