VIOLET ETERNAL is a newcomer band born out of the desire of two musicians from Italy and Japan to work with each other in creating a new melodic metal band, blending power, and oriental choruses with fast-paced rhythms and interpersonal lyrics, with the ambiance of shredding guitar solos.
Band co-founder and guitarist Jien Takahashi comments:
“I wanted to create the ultimate melodic power metal duo after MAJUSTICE and other activities, I was hungry for new music.
There were a lot of songs at the end of the previous activity, so I was looking for a way to shape it.
In such a situation, I met Ivan Giannini online.
I originally knew Ivan from his legendary work with VISION DIVINE and the song “Angel of Revenge” and his other band DERDIAN.
I was completely fascinated by his emotional voice that seemed to burn the skies.
So I was wishing I could do something with him.
When I got in touch with Ivan, we immediately hit it off and we decided to make an album together.”
After connecting with vocalist Ivan Giannini, Jien made a call to a mutual friend Ollie Bernstein (ILLUSION FORCE, MAGIC OPERA) who he had a feeling would be interested in joining the duo in creating an album together plus he was also playing bass in Derdian, which Ivan was a member of too.
Not too soon after, more pieces to the project came together when the trio recruited Andrea Cappellari (NEKOMATA, ex SKELETOON).
With all the members collected, and music being written, the band was ready to hit the studio and decided to team up with producer Dennis Ward (ANGRA, HELLOWEEN) for their first full-length album “Reload The Violet“, which will be released on Rockshots Records this coming May 3rd, 2024.
The album also features guests Takao (MinstreliX), Gabriel Guardian (IMMORTAL GUARDIAN), keyboardist YUHKI, drummer Ryuya Inoue, and Timo Tolkki (ex-STRATOVARIUS).
To introduce Violet Eternal to the world, today the band unveils their debut track “The Echoes of Time“, a grand opus-style power metal anthem.
