It's hard to describe the music of Angélique in a few words, you just must listen to it. Gothic, symphonic, power, death, electronica... A multi-layered soundscape made of apparent opposites. And the plot of this elaborate concept album is just as complex: Angélique is a 21th century Metal Opera about the arcane writing process of a homonym and fictitious 19th century classical opera. Thus, ANGELDARK build bridges between the European musical romanticism and the avant-garde of melodic metal, featuring soprano Berenice Musa and the whole Bratislava Symphony Orchestra and Choir.

Produced by Santiago Fano at Bunker Estudios, the album was mastered by George Marino and UE Nastasi (Iron Maiden, Coldplay, Metallica) at Sterling Sound, New York.
