Austrian symphonic power metal outfit Dragony have released a new digital single called “The Dead Queen’s Race.” The group’s latest full-length offering, Viribus Unitis, rewrote the history of Austria, and now their new single takes listeners back to the days of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Sisi. Fun fact, contributing writer for Metal Insider, Siegfried Samer, serves as the band’s singer. “The Dead Queen’s Race” features guest singer Maria Nesh from Red Eye Temple and is accompanied by the below lyric video.
The band comments:
“DRAGONY bids farewell to their latest album, Viribus Unitis, released in 2021, with the new, previously unreleased single ‘The Dead Queen’s Race’! The brand new up-tempo track adds another chapter to the alternative history saga established in the concept of the Viribus Unitis album, and puts empress Elisabeth, the undead Empress of the Damned, and the character of white mage Harry Houdini, in center focus. The part of Elisabeth is performed by Red Eye Temple lead vocalist Maria Nesh as guest singer, who contributes a colorful vocal mix of clean and extreme vocals to add another layer to the DRAGONY sound. Join us one more time on our journey back to our fictionalized version of fin-de-siècle Vienna and partake in ‘The Dead Queen’s Race’!”
