Power metallers Trick or Treat will release the new album “The Legend of the XII Saints” on April 24 on Scarlet Records.
Born in 2002 as a tribute to Helloween, the band soon became one of the most solid realities of the Italian heavy metal scene, with albums very well received by critics and audiences and an incessant live activity.
Between 2018 and 2019, Trick or Treat realized a project they had been in the works for some time, that is, a concept album freely inspired by the Knights of the Zodiac, the anime and manga series created in 1985 by Masami Kurumada. Twelve songs for the twelve legendary knights, one for each zodiac sign: each track represents a monograph of the characters and the compelling plot that links them to the figure of the goddess Athena.
In their long-awaited sixth studio-album, the acclaimed bearers of happy metal have once again forged an epic and electrifying sonic adventure, enriched by majestic orchestrations, refined arrangements and, as usual, unforgettable refrains.
