    Will and Thunder Welcome MN Gothic Metal Band, Heliosaga

    in Rock Music

    Heliosaga- “Towers In The Distance” is the anticipated album rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.

    The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life. 

    “Towers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy). 

    Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.

    Dark Beauty: dark gothic rock opera. Joy Collins: heartfelt, melodic country

    in Music

    NOTE: THE Blogktalkradio.com server was corrupted and the podcast for this show will not play.  You can hear a clean copy at Music Friday: www.blogtalkradio.com/musicfriday.


    Dark Beauty will tell the legend of the Dark Angel who fell from grace and now rules an evil tower in an unknown land.  Banished from heaven she is pulled down from grace above, falling deep into the woods of the dark primeval forest.  With a broken wing she descends through twisted cathedral-like branches of trees.  Dark Beauty, five supremely talented musicians who range from opera singer to a professor at the Manhattan School of Music have come together in a classically influenced, gothic alternative Progressive Rock band that will tell this tale in its concept album, “Fall From Grace”. This will be the first time anyone has ever heard it.


    Joy Collins is a fourth generation vocalist who has seen a lot of life, both good and bad.  After hitting bottom, she has gone through a metamorphosis, like a caterpillar into a butterfly, shaking off addictions, hitting bottom and finding love again.  With a perfect pitch voice and lyrics and power than come from having lived  the stories sings,  she is ready to take the music world by storm.  Joy has worked with some of the most sought after players in Nashville and is now stepping out and a strong, emerging country musician. Her new album , It Ain’t Just Music, is what country is about – life as it comes at you and we are proud to have her.

     Combining 60s psychedelia, folk noir, art rock, gothic post-punk and baroque pop, The Mad Pride has been described as haunting and ominous like Syd Barrett and David Bowie collaborating on a Tim Burton film soundtrack. Comparisons are often made to Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, Erik Satie, Opeth, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, baroque and minimalist / repetitive composers. It is the solo recording project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Rowan Galagher.
