ABBA-Metal pioneers Amberian Dawn just released their third single, the title track “Looking for You”, along with an official video via Napalm Records. In a nutshell, this high voltage fusion perfectly represents the upcoming album and its poetic sound.
 
The offical video for “Looking for You” aesthetically mirrors the conflict between memories, desires and leaving your ancient life behind. Monumental melodic vocal lines that remind of the Swedish pop giants ABBA pair with strong keyboard-driven, 80’s pop influenced sounds and merge with heavy drums and guitar riffs into an impressive genre-fluid creation. This addictive mix can only be described as follows – Finnish ABBA-Metal at its finest! Amberian Dawn developed their style and spiced it up by entering and creating a new musical universe.

Tuomas states:
“This is the Crown Jewel of the album. This song is exactly what so-called ABBA-Metal is all about. Haunting and dramatic keyboards, strong melodies and tons of vocal tracks. I worked closely with Finnish synthesizer artist Kebu to achieve this wonderful vintage keyboard sound. I let myself go into world of 80’s synthesizer music and then my band mates helped me to arrange the song into an Amberian Dawn-song”.

“Looking for You”, out on January 31st, 2020, proves that ABBA and metal do not mutually exclude each other. Amberian Dawn is navigating into a new style, which is even more melodic, keyboard driven and not only a sophisticated symbiosis but yet their own style: “Melodic ABBA-Metal from Finland”. The new album is packed with well-polished and immaculate songwriting, full of catchy melodies and epic keyboard parts that immediately send shivers down your spine.

Since their music changed from Power Metal to Symphonic Metal over the last years, Amberian Dawn are now navigating into yet another new style, which is even more melodic, keyboard driven and influenced by the Swedish band ABBA. Therefore, they’ve been working closely with award-winning Finnish artist Kebu for over a month, to create the ingenious keyboard sound that can be heard on the recording.

The album will be available in the following formats:
• 1 CD Digipak
• LP Gatefold - 12" Vinyl Black
