We‘re writing the year 2017 and since the release of the EVERTALE debut album (2015 via NoiseArt Records) some time has gone by. The concept work “Of Dragons And Elves“ made fans of both Power Metal and role playing games cheer. Now the time has nally come: The Germans have finished their new masterpiece„The Great Brotherwar“. This time, the band deliberately chose not to use a concept. Lyrically, the songs take you right into the „Warhammer 40k“ universe, more exactly into the era of the„Horus Heresy“, where the great brother war started. But also other role playing and/or computer games like „Dawn Of War II“, „Dragon Age: Origins“ and the modern role-playing classic „The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim“
have inspired EVERTALE. And even if the band doesn‘t pursue any political ambitions,„The Great Brotherwar“ is more up-to-date than ever when read in context with the current world affairs.
For the recordings, EVERTALE retired to their own home studio again to work on the songs unitl the end. Guitarist Matthias Graf tells that this is ideal for their mode of work. The drums were recorded by Christoph Brandes in the Iguana Studios in Freiburg again. Since the former drummer Tyronne was prevented, Christoph played the drum tracks for „The Great Brotherwar“ himself. He also worked as co-producer next to Matthias. Furthermore, he did the Mix & Mastering for the entire record. Meanwhile, the vacant position on the drums is filled again by Cornelius„Wombo“ Heck from Finsterforst, who has supported the band already on their past tour with Elvenking.
