The band describes the release as: "Circus Black is the most impressive AD album so far. Musically it
represents the most sophisticated and most symphonic edge of AD-music.
more diversity on this album than never before. This is the first time
we used a real choir and we gathered some really excellent professional
singers together to be able to achieve the best sounding choir possible. As announced before, vocalist Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius) and keyboardist Jens Johansson (Stratovarius,
Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force) have
contributed their talent on this album. Kotipelto sings lead vocal parts
on “Cold Kiss” and Johansson plays a keyboard solo on “Crimson Flower”."
Darkgrove Design created the "Circus Black" album theme and visuals and the band also got a brand new website and MySpace 3.0 profile on the same go. You can view a few booklet pages in the CD gallery.
