April 10th was supposed to see the release of Her Chariot Awaits self-titled debut album, but the universe had different plans (for all of us). We know it is not quite the same as a new full-length album, but please enjoy this music video from Ailyn and Mike Orlando Music for the new single, ‘Take Me Higher’!
Their self-titled debut will now be available on May 22nd. Pre-save on your preferred streaming service here: https://orcd.co/
Her Chariot Awaits is a newly formed hard rock/metal group featuring the highly regarded Spanish singer Ailyn (ex-Sirenia) on lead vocals and the awesome American guitarist and producer Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob).
This exciting new musical alliance came about through the vision of Frontiers, who put the two artists – each eager to create a new and exciting project – in touch. The pair gelled extremely well, creating an album that offers songs that will excite all lovers of technical, aggressive, modern and extremely catchy heavy music.
Melting the well defined metal approach of Adrenaline Mob with more melodic hooks, Her Chariot Awaits showcases the incredible vocal talents of Ailyn. Here, she moves in a heavier and more straight ahead direction compared to her previous band.
Says Ailyn: “After a two year break from the scene, I am pleased to announce my new collaboration with Mike Orlando on Her Chariot Awaits. I’m very honoured and thankful to be part of it. I’m looking forward to everyone learning about this new adventure, which allowed me to experiment and explore a new side to my singing, working together with a great musician. Her Chariot Awaits is a new step forward in my music career and I can’t wait to share the beginning of this journey with all of you.”
Orlando adds: “It was a pleasure to write and perform an album with a singer like Ailyn with music that is geared more towards the commercial side of rock. Ailyn has a beautiful voice and was great to work with in and out of the studio, as was Jeff Thal on drums! I’m very happy with how the album is coming out. It’s a great collection of hard hitting yet melodic commercial rock tracks, which I hope you will all enjoy.”
The album is a remarkable union of two great artists who still have a lot to prove, and is going to leave listeners breathless – stay tuned!
