Gothic Metal / Rock Band EVERLUST Announce New EP "The Tale of the Noble Knight"
Latvian female fronted melodic metal / rock band EVERLUST have returned with a new collection of songs. Following the critically acclaimed album "Diary of Existence", the band is ready to unleash their new EP "The Tale of the Noble Knight", due for release on May 13th, 2022 via Wormholedeath worldwide.
The Tale of the Noble Knight The concept of this EP is the story of a knight, who has travelled a lot, been involved in many battles and seen many things. Now he returnes home, he is very tired. Now he can take off the helm. This first song title is the same "The Tale of the Noble Knight" - it is told from the other person's view (a lady), who meet the knight at home. The second song "Execution" shows us the thoughts of the knight about the necessity to change and execute the previous self, to change completely, so "the better one could live". "Nostalgie" is the third song and it is about faded feelings. You remember the good old times, when everything was new and feelings were strong. It is also the remake of the 2007 band's demo album song. "Ego" is an acoustic track about the situation when a person states his/her ego and pride over everything, so it doesn't matter what he/she may lose in the result. The bonus track "Happy Nation" is the cover of 90's Ace of Base song. The arrangement author Vlad planned to cover this song for a long period of time and finally made it. He completely agrees with the song author stating that this is "a hymn to life".
