TARJA to release “Victim Of Ritual” single and video

Tarja Turunen, former Nightwish singer, will release a new single entitled “Victim Of Ritual” on July 12th via earMUSIC.

Based on her 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.

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 June 12th, 2013.

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.
