~ NEW ALBUM ~
The new Vivaldi Metal Project album will not only feature classical masterworks by Vivaldi, but the works of other great composers such as Chopin, Mozart, Bach, Fauré, Schubert, Saint-Saens, Dvorak, Beethoven, Albinoni, Paganini, and more.
While based on classical themes, these songs will be largely composed of original material, representative of Vivaldi Metal Project’s symphonic-metal style.
on the band’s previous album "The Four Seasons", all songs will include
vocalists, band, orchestra and choir, as well as a featured cast of
internationally-recognized metal and classical artists.
The band's first record revolved around the concept of the various "seasons" of the human life - from birth to death. As a continuation of the last, this new album will explore the "seasons" of our emotional experience as human beings - from joys to sorrows and from frailty to deep strength. Each song creates a rich musical tapestry expressing the “colours” of raw human emotion, while weaving a common thread throughout the album.

~ EXCLUSIVE PERKS! ~
~ OVERVIEW ~
The Vivaldi Metal Project is a symphonic-metal group conceived and produced by Italian keyboard player, composer and producer Mistheria
(solo artist, Bruce Dickinson, RoyZ, Rob Rock, Mark Boals, Artlantica, Tower of Babel)
Back in 2013, Mistheria started thinking about making a metal version of “The Four Seasons”, a masterpiece that he loved and kept listening to since his childhood. Mistheria started to play and record all the movements on the piano but then felt that a parallel symphonic-metal version would have been the perfect continuation.
Mistheria made the “innovative” choice – never done so far – to add lyrics and singers to “The Four Seasons” which, as composed by Vivaldi, is an instrumental work. For this important task, he invited Douglas R. Docker who perfectly translated the producer’s concept into brilliant lyrics. Additional lyrics were written by Mistheria, Rob Rock and Lance King.
A cast of 10 awesome arrangers joined Mistheria creating epic and memorable music, combining a standard metal band lineup with strings, orchestra and choir:
Douglas R. Docker, Francesco Dall’O’, Frank Caruso, Gabriels, Keiko Kumagai, Nicolas Waldo, Pawel Penksa, Tomas Varnagiris, Yannis Androulakakis, Zhivko Koev.
The cast furthermore includes performances by Mark Boals (Malmsteen, Royal Hunt), Fabio Lione (Rhapsody of Fire, Angra), Edu Falaschi (Almah), Rob Rock (Impellitteri), Mike Lepond (SymhonyX), Dani Löble (Helloween), Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), Mark Cross (Firewind, Scorpions), Steve Di Giorgio (Testament), Rolf Pilve (Stratovarius), Victor Smolski (Rage, Almanac), Ruben Israel (Delain), John Macaluso (ARK), Marco Sfogli (James Labrie), Chris Caffery (Savatage), Mark Wood (Trans Siberian Orchestra), Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork), Atma Anur (Tony MacAlpine), Vitalij Kuprij, Anna Portalupi (Tarja Turunen), Sean Tibbetts (Kamelot), Martijn Peters (Stream of Passion) and many more.
Moreover, the project features the “Sinfonietta Consonus Symphonic Orchestra” (Poland), the “Academic Choir Angel Manolov” (Bulgaria), the “Chamber Choir Ivan Filipovic” (Croatia) and the “Rock Academy Choir” (Croatia). It took more than 2 years of intensive non-stop hard work to complete the album.
Mixed and mastered by Ivan Moni Bidin at “Artesonika Recording Studio in Italy.
