Finland Power Prog Metal band ULTIMATIUM share “Digital Tower” track off their latest album “Virtuality”.
Band comments “Digital Tower is a very aggressive, but low-tempo song, the heaviest and most symphonic song we’ve ever made. Song is heavily influenced by these three songs: Rainbow – Stargazer / Stratovarius – Season of Change / Black Sabbath – Heaven & hell. And shows the full potential of character sang by Jukka Nummi. As seen on the video, this song has very special meaning for Jukka since Matti gave him full artistic freedom to use his Ronnie James Dio-vocaling style at full strength”
The premise behind “Virtuality” is an introduction of a storyline of four gamers getting stuck in a virtual reality game in a near-future setting. Packed with five amazing lead vocalists, Peter James Goodman (Conquest, ex-Virtuocity), Jukka Nummi (ex-Myon), Emily Leone, Tomi Viiltola (ex-Dreamtale, Perpetual Rage, Viilto) and Matti Auerkallio (Katra, Manzana, SoulFallen), “Virtuality” is a unique storyline about the virtual world, and the dangers of sharing everything in social media, along with up-tempo power metal songs combined with darker elements.
The story album is backed up with lots of background vocals, sound effects and a “narrator”/system voice synthesized with Amazon’s Alexa.
The album introduces the best parts of power and progressive metal combined, including easier up-tempo songs, but also long, progressive mid-tempo tracks. The songs take influence from such bands as Stratovarius, Dream Theater, Symphony X and Rainbow.
