about

Three years after their sensational debut "Legends", the Austrian sextet DRAGONY present its successor in 2015. "Shadowplay" contains 12 hammering Symphonic Power Metal hymns, which display a clear step forward in the band's development, showing that they have forced their style forwards. It's no wonder, as the debut was showered with tremendous reviews, for example the renowned German mag Metal Hammer awarded "Legends" six points from a maximum of seven. With such encouragement it is not surprising that the lads bundled all their energy and know-how in order to build on that first success. Highly motivated, the work on the second album went forwards and the results are impressive. For fans and connoisseurs of this musical genre, "Shadowplay" is an absolute highlight of the year 2015. "Shadowplay" shows a band that refuses to bow down to any kind of conventions, that has its musical goals firmly in focus, and that impresses the listener through their imaginative and technically pure work. They are versatile in playing with the popular clichees of the genre and still come across as fresh and innovative. Zak Stevens, of Savatage / Trans Siberian Orchestra and Circle II Circle fame, put his vocals on "The Silent Sun", a hymnlike power number with a classical touch, not unlike examples of his previous musical work. "Warlock", with its hymnic inserts will make every PA system throb with its heavy double bass parts. Clearly more melodic but still a driving force is "Babylon", which is also interspersed with the classical elements of the genre. Refreshing is the most suitable word to describe the final track "True Survivor", probably the best song sung by "Knight Rider" David Hasselhoff as the title track of the sensational Kickstarter film "Kung Fury". DRAGONY thought the song was so brilliant, that they simply had to cover it! They gave it an even stronger 80s metal touch and the result is really catchy, thus ending an album full of great songs and an excellent production. Overall "Shadowplay" sounds homogeneous and refreshingly heavy - so there is plenty of reason to promote this album on tour. Therefore, the band will be on the billing of Gamma Ray's Anniversary Tour in October and November 2015!

about

Dragony Vienna, Austria

What first began as a project in the idyllic alpine republic has solidified into a real band. Everyone knows that Austrians don't do things half-heartedly and it was only to be expected that the former DRAGONSLAYER PROJECT had evolved into a solid lineup by 2008. Since then the road led ever upwards for the six lads from Vienna. ... more
