Symphonic metal supergroup Exit Eden, featuring Clémentine Delauney of Visions of Atlantis, Anna Brunner of League of Distortion, and Marina La Torraca of Phantom Elite, are back to mesmerize audiences with their second studio album, illustrating the strength and female empowerment with the title “Femmes Fatales”, which is set for release on January 12, 2024, via Napalm Records.
Exit Eden’s new masterpiece contains its own original compositions as well as covers of international hits and refers to the “femme fatale” as a symbol of women taking control of their own narratives with autonomy, intelligence, and independence, and bringing pure feminine energy back into the world.
With their debut, “Rhapsodies in Black” (2017), entering the German album charts at # 15 and millions of views on their previous official videos, the trio presents the new single ‘Run!’, featuring a magical guest appearance by matchless vocalist Marko Hietala (ex-Nightwish).
Written by Anna Brunner and Hannes Braun (Kissin’ Dynamite), the original track ‘Run!’ showcases another astonishing facet of the album by bringing a folk-ish vibe alongside the outstanding appearance of Hietala, gracing the track with his distinctive voice. The haunting song arrives with a high-quality official video, luring the listener into the mesmerizing world of Exit Eden.
The band states: “We are back and very excited to re-introduce Exit Eden, starting with the single ‘Run!’ – our very first original song ever. It features the legendary Marko Hietala (ex-Nightwish), and we couldn’t be more honored! This is only one of the many facets of our new album, “Femmes Fatales”, and we can’t wait to share all of them with you.”
When Clémentine Delauney, Anna Brunner, Marina La Torraca, and Amanda Somerville came together to form Exit Eden, topped by the release of their first album, it became immediately clear that this combination would be both powerful and magical. These four outstanding and independent female vocalists proved that symphonic heaviness can go hand in hand with pop music – dressing well-known classics in a yet unheard soundscape, and evoking more than just a covers album!
Now performing as a trio, Exit Eden‘s new full-length follows the path of its predecessor, as it contains six cover versions of famous cross-generational super-hits, but this time also shines by offering six original compositions. With one exception, ‘Dying in my Dreams’, co-written by Marina La Torraca, the remaining five original songs were brought to life by Anna Brunner and Hannes Braun (Kissin’ Dynamite), who is also responsible for recording, production, and mixing, whereas the album was mastered by Jacob Hansen (Delain, Amaranthe, Volbeat, Destruction and many more).
