German Symphonic band Xandria have released 'Dreamkeeper', the first track from their sixth studio album, 'Sacrificium' which is due for release on Monday 5th May in the UK via Napalm Records.
According to the band, the new album will "continue the musical journey and direction" of their last album, (2012s 'Neverworld's End') but "will bring in even more of everything people liked" about it.
The album will see the debut on new vocalist Dianne van Giersbergen (who also fronts the progressive Metal band, Ex Libris) after the departure late last year of the previous vocalist Manuela Kraller, shortly before recording commenced. The new album is also the first to feature new bass player, Steven Wussow.
