THOMAS CARLSEN’s TRANSMISSION releases the first single entitled “The Fire Within“, the song taken from the new album “A Brave Horizon,” which is set to be released worldwide on July 14, 2023.
“A Brave Horizon” is the highly anticipated first studio album of virtuoso guitarist Thomas Carlsen, a 52-minute line-up with heavy metal music, written and performed by Thomas Carlsen and 5 incredible vocalists from around the world and there will be three singles planned be released before the release date.
Thomas Carlsen: “These songs continue what I started with my debut EP, “Redemption”; some songs feel heavier and riff-based and some are more melodic and tight. There are also new elements to his music; like some of the longer, progressive songs, which I’m sure will please most metal fans. Overall, I feel this is a continuation for my EP that shows more of my abilities as a performer and songwriter.”
“A Brave Horizon” was written and recorded in Carlsen’s home studio. Some of the songs are from before the release of the “Redemption” EP, although most were written in a very timely period following his signing with RFL Entertainment in February 2022. After the vocalist sent in his recordings, their mixing and mastering duties were completed at Legend Recording Studio by Marius Danielsen in April 2023. “A Brave Horizon” is not only a very heavy record with elements of IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST and DOKKEN, it is also fierce, soulful and Heavy Metal itself.
The first single, “The Fire Within,” starts the process leading up to the release of the debut album, accompanied by thunderous drums and twin guitar leads with vocals performed by one of Iceland’s finest voices, Atli Guðlaugsson of Power Metal band Power PALADIN.
