Italian Power metallers KALEDON have released their new single & video ‘The Eye Of The Storm’, taken from the band’s upcoming album “Legend Of The Forgotten Reign – Chapter VII – Evil Awakens”, set to be released on September 23rd via Beyond The Storm Productions.
Alex Mele of KALEDON comments on the new single:
“It’s hard to describe in words how extremely happy and proud I am about the outcome of “CH7: Evil Awakens“. We already released ‘The Dawn of Dawns’ and here comes the second single ’The Eye Of The Storm’ which shows the energy and the power of the new album. The sheer power of this new song is mind-blowing!”
Mainly composed by him in 2018 and early 2019, mainman and guitarist Alex Mele now presents the direct thematic album follow-up to 2010’s “Chapter VI: The Last Night On The Battlefield”!
And the Roman string wizard has truly made the most of his creative time for KALEDON – “Chapter VII – Evil Awakens” is the most elaborate, versatile and ultimately on all levels most content-rich work of the persistently highly ambitious formation to date.
The consistently gripping concept album also offers lyrically all-around captivating thematic material of the most visionary:
In it, the evil creature Mozul returns from his supposed death to once again bring pain and suffering to the mighty dominion of Kaledon. The entire story can be found in the lovingly designed CD booklet.
The latest POWER METAL spectacle of the enormously charismatic band around the even more fantastic singer Michele ‘Meek’ Guaitoli opens the first chapter of a new trilogy – yes, also theatrically KALEDON can grandiose in all their virtuosity! In the next few years the playful Italians will release chapters 8 and 9.

Since everyone in the group has a professional background, the members recorded their respective parts in all necessary tranquility in their own home studios. The material was subsequently mixed by the experienced all-rounder Guaitoli, and master Meek did a great job for it in his Groove Factory Studios – it simply doesn’t get any fresher and crisper than this.
Lovers of classic, emphatically noble Power Metal will experience goosebumps and flights of fancy at the same time while listening, because “Chapter VII – Evil Awakens” can simply do everything.
The opulently enchanting disc pleases even the most tasteful and demanding ears in the most rhythmically powerful way with absolutely ecstatic speed outbursts, truly dreamlike melodies and a gigantic fervent singer on world-class level! (Markus Eck)
