German Symphonic Metal band Xandria will release their new album, The Wonders Still Awaiting, on February 3, 2023, via Napalm Records.

Xandria promises the next chapter of the band’s history with their long-awaited brand-new full-length. Guitarist and mastermind of Xandria Marco Heubaum and enlisted new members, Ambre Vourvahis [vocals], Robert Klawonn [guitar], Tim Schwarz[bass], and Dimitrios Gatsios [drums] continue to force ahead with the band’s heritage.

The Wonders Still Awaiting emerges harder, darker, and more epic than ever before but simultaneously holds an intimate setting and range of emotions. Rich in different styles and genres, the album comes close to a movie score, sending its listener on an exciting journey to experience a world of sound never heard before in the universe of Xandria.

The impressive vocal wealth of Ambre ranges from rock grit, operatic highs, and even death metal growls with a broader palette of colors. Songs like the opening epic “Two Worlds,” “The Wonders Still Awaiting,” and “Ghosts” manifest the thematic mood of the album while constructing incredible soundscapes of pure symphonic metal. “Two World” also sets the record’s lyrical concept, dealing with questions like what kind of world we live in; one in which people deal sensibly with each other and treat it respectfully, or a dystopia dominated by autocrats and controlling technology? “Paradise” showcases some of the strongest hooks that captivate with great metallic pop melodies.

I had the pleasure of interviewing vocalist Ambre Vourvahis about her decision to join Xandria, the challenging approach to recording her vocal tracks, the importance of capturing the power and passion of her voice, the song with her biggest imprint, and her passion for Symphonic metal.
