Tarja Turunen (Ex-Nightwish) Teams Up With Doro, Lacuna Coil, Amaranthe, Etc. Members For Charity Version Of “Feliz Navidad”

Former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen has announced that she will be releasing a Barbuda Relief And Recovery Charity Version of “Feliz Navidad” digitally and on a limited edition 7″. It will be available on December 8, and proceeds are set to go towards the Caribbean island of Barbuda, which was hit by Hurricane Irma. earMUSIC will be doubling the amount of money raised as well. Turunen worked with following guests on this particular version: Michael Monroe, Doro Pesch, Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Marko Saaresto (Poets Of The Fall), Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius), Simone Simons (Epica), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation).

Tarja commented:

“The tiny Caribbean island of Barbuda has been devastated by Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm recorded in history to sustain over 200 km per hour winds for 24 hours. Around 90% of the nation’s structures and vehicles have been destroyed. Irma passed over Barbuda early on Wednesday, 6th of September 2017, as a Category 5 hurricane. Barbuda is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and forms part of the state of Antigua and Barbuda. The island is now a near-deserted disaster zone. Almost all of its 1,500 residents were relocated to the sister island of Antigua. Critical facilities including roads and communications systems were ravaged, with the recovery effort set to take months or years.

“I have had a home in Antigua, Caribbean for quite a few years now. I have friends there, but mainly, I have seen how the locals live and how unprepared they are for this magnitude of destruction.

“I had just finished recording my winter album ‘From Spirits And Ghosts’ in Antigua before the hurricane hit the Caribbean. I was already immersed in Christmas feelings at that time and immediately it came to my mind that the people of Barbuda will have a very dark Christmas this year and in the years to come. I wanted to find a way to give them hope for a brighter future. So Christmas gave me the perfect excuse to call some dear friends and ask them to help me raise some funds for the people in Barbuda.

“We are going to donate all incomes generated from the version of ‘Feliz Navidad’ we recorded, and my record company earMUSIC will add a similar amount on top of it for the charity. When the time comes, I will personally make sure the donation is given to the right hands.

“I thank you all my friends Michael, Doro, Tony, Elize, Marko, Timo, Simone, Cristina, Joe, Floor, Hansi and Sharon from the bottom of my heart. I am very glad and honoured that you could be a part of this. Your voices will give hope and they will be heard.

“We need all of you to spread the word in order for fans and music lovers to get to know about this charity project. Is time to get together and to share our passion for this good cause. You can review the music style, production, sound or the performance of the ones involved, but this time the focus should be in a different place.

“Dear fans, I really hope that together we can make a change. If you are not used to download music or if you don’t collect vinyls, it shouldn’t stop you from helping. Do it this time for the people in Barbuda. Please share this song with all your friends and relatives and ask them to do the same.

“We wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of our hearts.”

Watch Footage Of Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia Joining Epica Onstage In Los Angeles, CA

Cristina Scabbia Says New Lacuna Coil Album Will Have “More Growling” & “More Metal”

In a recent interview for the Revolver Podcast Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia discussed the band’s new album, “Delirium.” During the chat, she said fans can expect this album to much heavier than their recent material.

Here’s what she had to say:

“Well, the new sound is definitely gonna be heavier, a little bit more technical, ’cause he’s [drummer Ryan Blake Folden] really, really good, so we can play with drums. But there are gonna be a lot of differences. I mean, we reintroduced a lot of growls with the singing as well. So, overall, it’s gonna be more heavy than it used to be. I mean, it’s weird to say, because, on one side, we’re going back, because we’re going back to the Lacuna Coil roots, with a lot more growling, more aggressive [and] and more metal, but on the other side, there are a lot of new elements.

So it’s a combination of things that makes everything really new for us. We’re always talking about evolution, because it’s always been the right way for us — not to get stuck in one place, to try to find different things, to take some risks. I mean, sometimes we’ve been criticized for our choices, but we see that [as] the only way to go on. You can’t do the same thing over and over. You wouldn’t do it in life, so we don’t want to do it in our music.”
