“Victim Of Ritual” cover competition winners

Dear victims of ritual!

Thank you for the amazing amount of spectacular photos you sent me. You obviously put a lot of effort in making them so I truly appreciate it. Nevertheless it was not easy for me to make the decision of the best five, so I decided to choose fifteen! Anyway, you are all winners!
I chose fifteen photos that impressed me for different reasons. Whether they are more artistic, beautiful, odd or somehow moved me.

Thank you again for taking part in this! I had a lot of fun in watching the photos.

With love, Tarja

“Victim Of Ritual”- First single and video coming in July!

PRESS RELEASE

An evocative snare-drum that sounds like it was coming from a mysterious place, the tender sound of an orchestra joins followed by a familiar and seductive melody played by an oboe. When Tarja’s distinctive voice resounds through the speakers, her warm timbre fills the room.

Tarja Victim Of Ritual Single Cover

Her melody is full of emotions and tender, before the song explodes into an epic, heavy chorus:

“Hysterical, tragical
Victim of ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She’s a killer, killer
She’s a killer, killer”

- Excerpt of ‘Victim Of Ritual’ by Tarja

Inspired by the one-movement orchestral piece ‘Boléro’ by Maurice Ravel, the almost six minutes long, ‘Victim Of Ritual’ is the first single from Tarja’s forthcoming album “Colours In The Dark”. The song will be released as download, CD single and 7” vinyl on July 12th, 2013 via earMUSIC.

Both physical releases will surely become rare collector’s items, being made available in strictly limited quantities. The 4-songs digipak CD-single is limited to 3.000 copies worldwide, whereas the 2-track 7” vinyl is limited to only 1.500 units worldwide.

A video to ‘Victim Of Ritual’ is scheduled to follow in July.

Tarja’s forthcoming new album “Colours In The Dark” will be released in August 2013 via earMUSIC. Mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) in Austin, Texas, the album is definitely going to be one of the brightest moments for rock in 2013.

While Tarja´s fans will have to be patient and wait a bit longer for the first video-clip from the new album, a first glimpse can be enjoyed with the teaser song ‘Never Enough’, and an unusual lyric video was made available on Youtube, iTunes and Spotify.

For regular updates, fans should make sure to check the official album website www.tarja-coloursinthedark.com on which Tarja personally posts blog-entries about the process of the new album, revealing lyrics, information and keeps in touch with her fans.

PR: New album “Colours In The Dark” to be released on August 23rd

Tarja Colours In The Dark Logo

Despite her light and shiny personality, Tarja’s music has always been dressed “in black” – the colour of heavy rock, of mystery and elegance.
With Tarja’s new album, fans will find out what happens when a splice of colour is added to the mix. Or – better said – when the full colour spectrum enters the picture it does not cover the black but makes it shine through with many emotions and landscapes.

Following up on the success of the multi-platinum and gold awarded previous records “My Winterstorm” (2007) and “What Lies Beneath” (2010), Tarja finally returns with her long-awaited new rock album. “Colours In The Dark” will be released on August 23rd, 2013 via earMUSIC, the label which also released the top 5 live project “Act 1”.

Mixed and mastered by Tim Palmer in Austin, Texas (Pearl Jam, U2), the songs on “Colours In The Dark” do not shy away from taking a risk and surprising musical turns, introducing new sounds and new musical atmospheres. Still, they maintain a heaviness that will surely bring a big smile to the hardest of rockers.
