Stratovarius Release New Song ‘Oblivion’ From Upcoming Album ‘Enigma: Intermission 2′
Melodic power metal band Stratovarius has released the new song "Oblivion," from their upcoming album Enigma: Intermission 2, which comes out Sept. 28. "Oblivion" is trademark Stratovarius, replete with a soaring melody, infectious chorus and crunching riffs as you can hear in the player above.
Enigma: Intermission 2 will feature two other new songs along with new orchestral versions of four previously released tracks and rarities from the band's catalog. The new material accounts for about 30 minutes of the album, while the B-sides total another 50 minutes. The Finnish band named the album after 2001's Intermission, which featured a similar structure.
The previously released cuts on the new album include "Kill It With Fire" and "Castaway", two epics previously released for Japanese fans.
Enigma: Intermission 2 is the follow-up to 2015's Eternal. Stratovarius also released the compilation Best Of in 2016. This fall, the band will tour Europe with Tarja Turunen on the A Nordic Symphony '18 tour.
