Australian symphonic metal singer DARKYRA BLACK, will release her debut album, “Dragon Tears“, on February 20, 2014. The “Dragon Tears” cover artwork can be seen below.
‘Dragon Tears‘ is a concept album based on a Gothic interpretation of a geisha like tale that ends in tragedy. Love, loss, lust, betrayal and revenge. The music is a fine blend of symphonic metal, gothic metal, epic metal and progressive rock with elements of traditional pentatonic music and an overall cinematic feel. The album is being co-produced by Garry King, Darkyra Black and George Boussounis, through Online Recording Masters Athens and La Foret Groupe France.

When we think Female Fronted Symphonic Metal and Gothic Metal, our minds automatically think of the Ethereal Diva’s such as Tarja Turunen (ex Nightwish), Floor Jansen (Nightwish) and Simone Simons (Epica) and each year the number of carbon copy artists increases. Perhaps it’s time for a change. Perhaps the change is right here.
DARKYRA BLACK’s unique vocal is far from predictable as she has a way of blending together all the different colors of her voice taking you on an emotional roller coaster unlike any other female artist.
“Mystery lady Darkyra Black, a new voice within the realm of female fronted metal. Her music is Dark, Passionate and Edgy.”
