Jo What a surprise. Elena has a wonderful voice. A very fine highly melodical piece of symphonic metal/Rock.
The scifi lyrics and her voice creates a very emotional setting. The more I hear it, the more I like it Favorite track: Arrival.

Solo album of Crimson Cry singer Alex K. Strangel with perfect singer Elena Volkova from Solar Crown.

This is melodic metal album, where Alex took part as producer, composer, arrangerer and keyboardist (as always), but all vocals were recorded by Elena Volkova!

It is conceptual album about alien race of powerful creators of the worlds! The narration will be from the creators themselves and from ordinary people. Thus, we will witness certain events linking these two races, between which there is a huge gap in terms of development.
